CORONADO BREWING COMPANY IDIOT IIPA

Coronado Brewing Company Imperial India Pale Ale. I was attracted to this beer by the name, basically because beer has caused me to be an idiot several times (a bit more than several, actually). And I am grateful for my stupidity.

It pours a cloudy pale, which might be fine for an IPA, but I expected a bit darker. The aroma is tropical fruit with a resinous undercurrent. The taste is a bit of a reverse with the fruit struggling to penetrate the hop (five varieties; the big four Cs and Nugget) resin that coats the mouth. This is a very sensuous beer meant for savouring, but as there is no hint of the 8.5%ABV it disappears all too quickly. This could be a dangerous session ale.

There is a warning on the bottle that the fancy decoration contains Cadmium. Stick to what is inside and leave licking the bottle to a real idiot.

 

8/10
