4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a large off-white head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Fruity hops notes of grapefruit, mango and pineapple mix with pine needles and caramel and white bread malt in the aroma. Powerful grapefruit hops up front segue into fruitier tropical flavours of pineapple and mango, with a touch of kiwifruit leading into the mid-palate. Supple salted caramel malt in the mid-palate provides some backing to the hops. Melon and mango hops come in at the finish, leaving a lingering mango aftertaste. The range and depth of tropical hops flavours in this beer is very enjoyable, and there is just enough malt backing to sustain them, making for a classy imperial IPA.

The guys from Coronado always turn out a great product and this one is without exception. Nice traditional West Coast DIPA. Citrusy and bright with a great hue and mouthfeel.

On tap taster at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A light copper coloured beer with white head and lacing and a faintly sour nose. My taster may have been in the glass too long before I got to it, but I’m not getting any super- hopped impression. Nope. Okay. 2.5.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Espuma escasa. Aroma a fruta madura, algo de malta. En sabor, fruta dulce y madura, un poquito de caramelo y final intensamente amargo y complejo, para mí lo mejor de la birra. Fácil de beber para su estilo.

Aroma: floral and citric, going to some grass and hops and finishing in hints of fresh-cutted wood, beech and syrup.
Taste: medium to strong bitter.
Palate: thick but drinkable tongue sensation, like hot honey or mead.
Note: "Idiot" is a true reference to the drowsy feeling that this beer gives with only a few sips.
