12 oz bottle served chilled into a shaker pint glass.

Idiot is a very hazy copper color with thin white head.

Aroma is hoppy but not over the top. It's more like citrus pith rather than fresh juice or zest.

Flavor is surprisingly bitter even for an IPA. The hops flavor is not as prevalent but the bitterness is dominant.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and appropriately carbonated but not very balanced.

Overall a good IPA if you're just going for bitterness but not that great on flavor or aroma.

12 oz bottle. Pours clear copper orange with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet dank fruit with piney resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet ripe fruits with dank resiny hops. It has a bit of a tarry alcohol finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with lots of carbonation.

Overall, a nice DIPA, but a little harsh.

Good, clear and golden colored body with a thick, sticky, lasting white head; rings of lacing on the glass. Malty, somewhat woody smelling aroma; dry grass. Somewhat sweet, mildly malty, and decently strong hop bitterness flavors. Medium bodied; a little over-effervescent; dry finish.

An okay and solid IPA. Won't stand out in a crowd, but has a fair balance of flavors, leaning more towards the west coast hop bitterness end of the spectrum.
