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.

a double ipa for a fortnight and a day #6...Hazy, amber pour with one finger of rapidly diminishing head. Rich complex aromas and flavors, featuring pine needles, grapefruit, mandarin orange, tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, and mango. Powdery texture that is neither too thick, nor too thin. This really wraps itself around the taste buds, and digs in for an incredibly lengthy finish, while somehow managing to also be very soft and gentle on the palate, as strange as that sounds. Fantastic!!!!

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2010 Good light hop aroma, nice head, though a little pale in color. This has a good hop bite but isnt that bitter. Crisp and relatively easy to drink, I think I may like this one Coronado beer I had in the bottle better than all I had on tap at the brewery last weekend. Had again at Brews Best festival. Raised score from 4.5 to 4.6.

Awesome double IPA!! This monster of a beer pours a light amber color with a very soft, creamy and sticky off-white head. The beer leaves a beautiful, cascading, sticky lace around the edges of the glass. The nose is full of generous hops, resin, grass, light earth, citrus and pine. The body is smooth, creamy and an attractive mouthfeel. Some of the extremely well-balanced and delicious flavors were of hop resin, dry citrus, light red pepper flakes, earth, bread and a hint of caramel malt. The finish was smooth and delicious, with a subtle hint of alcohol, along with some spicy and dry hops. The Idiot IPA is a masterful beer!

Great imperial. Super fresh. Bitter green hops. Mouth buzzer. Doesnt have the sweetness I like. Slight soapy aftertaste.

Generally Im kind of tired of the west coast hop bombs, but this one is very good. Poured at a good temperature with a giant, foamy, frothy, off-white head that soon settles down and a bit of lace. Aroma is a fresh, pleasing hop, fruit, and a bit of malt. Flavors of course dominated by hop, but done with a sense of aesthetics - nicely contrasted with the malt and carbonic tang. Body/carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, long, with no off qualities, and only a hint of alcohol.

Great aroma of citrus fruits. The taste is similar. A lot of citrus fruits all over. Dry finish with just the perfect amount of bitterness.

Blond cuivr un peu trouble typique dune IPA. Magnifique mousse fine bien persistante et un peu collante. Dbordement darmes floraux et fruits en bouche.Fruit tropical : passion, litchi ananas mangue.Poivre fine levures : un des meilleur nez dipa qui soit. Bouche attaque amre bien sche, corps fluide, peu de douceur peu dalcool, mais une certaine ampleur que je ne classerais pas comme impriale mais comme IPA amricaine, souvent les meilleurs du style et ils le confirme ici. A boire jeune, frache au service et laisser se rvler en rchauffant.

A really enjoyable IPA. Aroma is peppery, bready, fruity... a little bit of everything. The flavor is the same.... extremely complex. Nice full mouthfeel and velvety smooth. No lingering bitterness. Delicious!

Underbar humlig doft av Bla citrus, tropisk frukt, gräs och malt. Smaken är riktigt god med en bra sötma och inslag av ovanstående. Bra beska och god eftersmak! Ev lite hög % men det är inget som drar ner ölet i sig. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
