Pours a yellowish-amber, cloudy color. Head is frothy and crunchy. Head retains well and lacing sticks nicely to the side of the pint glass !!. Aroma is of insane amounts of citrus, piney hops, so, so much orange and pine !!!!!!!. Taste is not as intense as the aroma would lead you to believe, but the taste is awesome, with lots of flavors coming through, grapefruit, grapefruit rind, tropical hints, fresh orange and hop resin, there is a lot going on here. Beer is cool and citrusy on the palate and the alcohol is well hidden. Feels great going down and verydrinkable. Hop heads will love this beer with its great mix of various hops!!

Pours a cloudy orange with a bit of soapy lacing.

Smell is very fruity. Mandarin and tropical fruits.

Taste is similar. Expecting maybe a tad more sweetness. Bitterness does well here, though. Grapefruit and apricot in there.

Surprisingly crisp and quick mouthfeel.

A solid IIPA. Would drink again.

Having an Idiot IPA at my favorite watering hole. One of the reasons it's my favorite is he rotates his taps frequently so I can get beers I've never had before, like this one. The only problem is that it was not sold to me as a Double or Imperial, so I'm on my second one and suddenly feeling the alcohol affects more than I'd like. I like this beer a lot. It has a great balance between the hops and malt. As far as hops go, I personally prefer the "pine" side of the scale as opposed to the "grapefruit" side, and Idiot IPA suits my tastes fantastically. As I said, I did not hesitate to order a 2nd beer. Somewhat creamy and full bodied, but the taste does not linger as long as you'd expect. The color is a bit lighter as well. Looking at the other reviews I'm glad I had the opportunity to get this on tap as opposed to being bottled.

Bright amber golden color with a thick head with good retention and leaving laces.
Sweet malty aroma with notes of honey, peaches, tangerines and pine. I was expecting something stronger.
Though flavor is much bolder than nose. Its hops made me sneeze immediately, so worth it the 90 IBUs. Notes of pine cones, honey, toasted malts, American yeast and spices. Hints of grapefruit and tea leaves. All four C's didn't reveal their faces entirely. Dry aftertaste with an endless bitter bite.
Medium to full body with mild carbonation. Somewhat creamy. Alcohol of 8.5% is behind the curtains.
Good DIPA with its own mark, but more assertive and bitter than complex.
