COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It doesn’t 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 Cs—Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus—brings forth a myriad of tropical fruit flavors and a brawny, persistent bitterness that makes for a highly intelligent brew.

egajdzis (6672) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 19, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2010 Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral/resiny hops, citrus fruits, caramel malts, light toast. Taste of much of the same, some resiny pine, citrus, toast, toffee, and a sharp, grapefruit bitterness in the finish. A bit of alcohol as well.

Heidbummer (735) - SCOTLAND - SEP 3, 2017
Keg, Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours hazy deep gold, thin head but persistent. Complex aroma of pine, burnt orange, cinder toffee. Mouth tingling and a bit boozy. Astringently dry, waves of hop bitterness giving way to a deep tropical fruit flavour. A great IPA.

BeardedAvenger (966) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2017
Keg at Brewdog Soho. Vague floral grassy aroma. Burnt orange. Dark amber. Slightly hazy. Thin white head. Sweet core with a light bitter over the top. Thick bodied. Sticky. Soft carb. Slightly astringent burn in the finish. Hides the ABV well. Restrained but at the same time you know you’re drinking it, whatever the fuck that means.

Fules (1305) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - AUG 10, 2017
Narancsos szín, közepes, tartós hab. Déligyümölcsös, túlérett mandarinos-narancsos illat. Déligyümölcsös, citrusos, fenyős ízek. Közepesen testes, közepesen szénsavas, erősen keserű. A keserűt jól ellenpontozaa a gazdag gyümölcsössége. Nagyon finom, jó egyensúllyal rendelkező IPA.

MetalNHopHead (2053) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUN 28, 2017
I enjoyed this brew on the same day that I enjoyed Islander. Like that brew, Idiot employs a lot of American C-name hops and whole helluva lot of West Coast attitude. Orange color. Citrusy, piney, resinous, and pithy nose. Dank flavor with massive wet pine needle and grapefruit zest flavor. Its bitterness will impress the hopheads and piss off about everyone else.

3.8
Gurthnar (6110) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 7, 2017
Bottle thanks to MisoW. High bitterness, moderate caramelly sweetness. High hops character, zesty citrusy fruityness, resiny. Grapes. Very good.
