Pawola22 (3262) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-bronze body with a thick, two-finger width, creamy and foamy, white head that never completely dissipates and leaves a few sticky streaks on the glass. Aroma jumps out of the bottle. Lots of grassy and piney hops. Tropical fruits with plenty of resiny deep citruses and mangos with more and more biscuity toffees as this warms. A light dusty wood and honey sweetness in there too. Flavor is not as complex as the aroma, but along the same lines. Lots of hops up front with a resiny feel and more of that biscuity maltiness providing a nice balance. Some honey soaked toast comes in there too and more of the tropical fruits. Finishes very piney and more mango-tangerine like than the initial fruit flavors. Lingers with a resiny, heavy and sweet bitterness with a medium sweet, biscuity toasted malt. Dry and clean after a medium, smooth, chewy body. Medium lasting aftertaste. Overall, a tasty DIPA. A hop bomb that maintains a real nice balance and body with lots of fresh flavors. This is solid.

BiddleBrau (1026) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2009
poured golden/orange with thinner white head. nose is pine and citrus hops, seems to be alot of them. with all the hops, I taste a malt sweetness. Orange is the citrus flavor that comes through. this is also a dry beer. Overall well balanced with hops playing biggest role but not beating the hell out of my tongue.

Pours a light amber color with a medium sized beige colored head. Nose is popcorn balls (made with dark corn syrup), rubber, vinyl, wet grass, and nutshell. Taste is sour blueberries, pine, cotton balls, brown sugar, and tangerine. Mouthfeel Is slightly sticky, somewhat bubbly, but smooth and drinkable. Finish is medium length.

13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Deep golden color, wonderful fruit & floral hops aroma. Thick and sweet mouthfeel with a bitter citrus flavor. Lingering bitter finish on the tongue. A little bit harsh on the finish but overall a great beer.

Kevin (2155) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 12, 2009
clear straw yellow with a white head. very sweet nose that smells of citrus, vanilla. how much crystal malt is in this thing if it is this hoppy? the sweetness is intense, blueberry, lemon, sweetcornbread, pineapple, and a flavor that reminds me of a dry hopped amber with nugget i had the other night. orange flavor lingers in the finish. not really what i was wanting, drinkable and still enjoyable. 4 5 6 3 14

Maddog (457) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - AUG 11, 2009
A fine double IPA, but not in the upper echelon. The pour was a clear light amber and the aroma was very nice fruity/citrusy hops. This beer is well balanced for a double IPA with a nice malt body that became very citrusy in its hops. Not overly big nor overly hopped up, but Hop Stoopid was a delicious, easy drinking beer.

Very good brew. Pours orange with white head. Outstanding citrus aroma. Flavor is sweet, full of caramel tones. Slightly bitter, yet sweet finish. Would drink again!

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 10, 2009
This beer has travelled a long way to get to Hamilton, New Zealand. It shows a bit, but there’s still an excellent beer here. For a start, it’s freaking beautiful in the glass. Glowing amber/orange, with a fluffy white head. The aroma exuding from the head is a lovely mix of grapefruit and oranges. The flavour is a little sickly sweet, and this is where I think the age and distance is showing a bit. Under the sweetness is a really nice mix of marmalade, toffee, and citrus. There’s a biting bitterness which builds up over the course of a pint. Great beer, can’t wait to try it fresh on tap in the US.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 9, 2009
22oz bottle - pourse a an amber color wtih plenty of foamy white head. Intense grapefruit aroma along with hops, malt, caramel and flowers. Taste of grapefruit, orange, hops and malt. This beer certainly comes with the trademark Lagunitas grapefruit and hops kick. Solid Imperial IPA - glad I was able to track this brew down. Next time I will buy a few of them.
