Quick Take: Coronado Brewing – Idiot IPA

Idiot_IPA

Beer

From the website:

It doesn’t take a genius to know quality West Coast IPA’s require a stupid amount of hops. A generous blend of Nugget hops and the four C’s – Cascade, Centennial, Chinook and Columbus – brings forth a myriad of tropical fruit flavors and a brawny, persistent bitterness that makes for a highly intelligent brew.

Look

Not an overwhelmingly great look. Looks more like a light ale than an IPA. Golden brown and quite clear. Head held for quite a while though. I poured this one terribly but the head it created lasted forever.

Smell

Definitely hoppy, but that’s the nature of an IPA. There are some other tones in there though, probably those four C’s…

Taste

I’m quite disappointed by this beer. Just simply doesn’t have the charm and complexity that the label and website claim it to hold. Simple and flat would be the best description here.

Final Thoughts

I literally forgot that I was drinking a beer when I had this one. Just let it sit in the glass on the stand and kept watching hockey. Not something I’d ever let flow down my gullet again.
