COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It doesnt take a genius to kno w quality West Coast IPAs require a stupid amount of hops. A generous blend of Nugget hops and the four CsCascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbusbrings forth a myriad of tropical fruit flavors and a brawny, persistent bitterness that makes for a highly intelligent brew.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden straw coloured beer with a nice, creamy white head on top. Aroma is massively hoppy, some grassy notes, piney touches, some grapefruit, its all in there. Flavor is firm and juicy hoppy, nicely bitter and not too compex. No booze detected, just a well drinkable and firm double IPA without too many complications. Nicely carbonated, long bitter finish. Nice.

The aroma is very hoppy and the taste is true to the smell. The color is a nice golden amber and settles well. The aftertaste is smooth. Overall, an awesome Imperial IPA!

[ ASPECTO ] La Coronado Idiot IPA se disfruta desde el primer instante, desde que empieza a resbalar por su copa (o vaso) con ese precioso tono dorado-ambar. Lmpida, casi brillante con una muy leve turbidez por fro. Su espuma es blanca, abundante y extraordinariamente cremosa, con una combinación de burbuja pequeña y grande que llama la atención. De una persistencia notable y una gran adherencia. [EN NARIZ] En nariz es compleja sin miramientos y de una gran intensidad. El grupo aromtico predominante es el herbal, con notas de lpulo muy claras acompaadas de un cierto toque acre y de hierba. Aparece tambin fruta blanca madura, una nota de bergamota muy suave y algunas notas especiadas que no identifico, as como notas dulces de malta y ligeramente tostadas. [ EN BOCA ] De entre los cuatro gustos bsicos (dulce, salado, cido y amargo; dejamos ahora de lado el umami y otros) prevalece el amargor, presente y dominante, aunque en ningún momento resulta astringente ni desagradable. Por el contrario, está muy bien equilibrado con el dulzor, que aparece de fondo en todo momento. Respecto a la sensacin en boca, es de cuerpo medio-lleno y con un ligero punto de calidez. Su persistencia en boca es media, apareciendo en el retrogusto algunas notas tostadas. [ CONSIDERACIONES GENERALES Y MARIDAJE ] De trago y bebestibilidad medios, la Coronado Idiot IPA no aparenta la graduacin alcohlica que realmente tiene (8,5% ABV). Su alcohol y amargor la hacen perfecta para maridar con carnes grasas y quesos con carcter, aunque es tambin sorprendentemente apta para tomar sola y repetir. Atencin en este ltimo caso (sobre todo si conduce), por que puede ser traicionera ya que, aunque no lo notemos en el paladar, los ocho graditos y medio siguen estando ah. [ OPININ PERSONAL ] Es una cerveza realmente bien equilibrada, de forma que amargor, alcohol y dulzor se hilvanan para dar una Imperial IPA que sorprende por su relativa suavidad (no olvidemos de qu estilo se trata). Repetir siempre que tenga ocasin.

Una IPA de color ámbar sin filtrar y baja carbonatación. Su aroma es a durazno y Damasco primando el lúpulo, conservando la esencia primaveral. En su sabor predomina el amargor del lúpulo con un leve dejo a durazno. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PabloZab (1348) - Wroclaw, POLAND - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle 355ml. Hazy amber colour with white-yellow head, nice lacing. Aromat is quite intensive, very fresh with sweet tropical fruits notes, small candy hint, a bit resin, smelling it you can feel whole cone Cascede :). Medium citrus bitterness at the beginning and very sweet, mega fresh aftertaste of tropical fruits. Medium to full body but really good drinkable in dangerous way. After few sips you can feel small hint of alcohol which warm a bit inside but its only small hint and does not destroy overall feeling of the beer. Very good, fresh, hoppy, aromatic imperial IPA.

Hoponmate (307) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 28, 2016
Quite a grassy bitter taste. The different hop varieties meld together really well to create a sweet resiny pine taste. You wouldnt guess it was an imperial until a few beers in.

I really loved this ipa it was hoppy and floral right up front but didnt linger too long. It came in a 22 ounce bottle and that was more than plenty
