CORONADO BREWING IDIOT IPA

Coronado Brewing Idiot IPA. After enjoying Coronado Brewing Islander IPA I didn’t hesitate picking up a bottle of this one. Of course the name is kind of intriguing too. It’s an Imperial American IPA hopped with Nugget, Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus. It’s 8.5% and 90 IBU.

Quite a light yellow for an imperial IPA with a fine head. Moderate carbonation.Caramel malt and resinous hop aroma. Full body with a smooth mouthfeel.  Starts with a soft caramel malt flavour leading into a grapefruit, citrus, slight weed and resinous pine flavour.

The hop flavours linger. The 8.5% ABV is well hidden and the slightly dry finish has you coming back for more. Nicely balanced, devoid of any heavy or sickly bittersweet characteristics which is a surprise given the high ABV.

If you enjoy hoppy beers like Epic Armageddon which are hoppy but not too heavy check this beauty out.

 

9/10
