look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a Teku glass
A: Slightly hazy orange with a one-finger head
S: Orange, pineapple, pine, malt, a hint of caramel
T: Bitter, mostly pine and a bit of the malt/caramel notes; doesn't really have much of the citrus
M: Medium-bodied, bitter
O: I wish the taste had more of the citrus notes, otherwise this is a solid though not groundbreaking DIPA

Very nice golden haze rendering the appearance nearly perfect. Strong pungent sour-ish grapefruit smell with a sticky dry mouth feel. Definitely some bitterness that hangs around but something in the balance of the ingredients is slightly off with a lingering sour aftertaste that doesn't suit my preference. Not the harmonious hop - citrus explosion that I've come to expect from the elite DIPAs. I've had the Coronado 18th Anniversary Imperial IPA on tap and it is better than the idiot. But seriously, anything named an idiot has to be tried....and it's a serviceable choice.
