For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

Bottle - Wasn’t gonna try it but glad I did. I thought it would be good but it is better than I anticipated. Just a good solid beer! Nice aroma, color, flavor. Cheers!

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2010 BOTTLE: clear orange pour, citrus hop nose. Taste is grapefruit, hop, nice bold but balanced hop profile, and not too thin on the palate. A notch down from Maximus in my opinion, but very good nonetheless.

Cask. The IIPA is not overpowering hoppy for having 100+ IBUs. Flavor doesn’t bite like other uber hopped beers. Great aroma, nice beer.

with that many IBU’s I was kind of expecting my head to pop off, but it was way more mild than i thought. great beer, if you like hoppy beers

Uh. I don’t know that what I wrote is appropriate to post here. Something about Columbus sailing the ocean blue & discovering N. American hops, then making a beer with them. Except the original review had a lot of expletives. This beer smells like weed, cat piss & caramel (its a good thing!) and tastes like heaven. Tingly pine, mango, malt. Wonderfully hoppy finish with some nice lighter caramel.

A pleasant surprise from Lagunitas. I was hoping for a new refreshing IPA this summer and I got one. Thin body, kinda reminds me of Pliny or Alpine Nelson IPA. Clean, crisp with nice citrus and hops. Well balanced, makes me want to come back for more. It could use a stronger dry hop for a bigger nose. Well done Lagunitas!

FROTHINGSLOSH (6372) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vivid amber color with a large yellow-white head. The aroma was sweet, fruity and strongly leafy floral hops with just a hint of pine. The flavor was dryish, tangy and bitter with notes of caramel, nut, pine and floral & fruity hops. The finish was long and bitter leafy hops. One dimensional and fairly mild for a double IPA. Decent.

Good but not great. Pours a nice orangey color with an amazing hop aroma. Flavor is hoppy but nothing like a stone or hop devil even. A bit thin considering it’s size as a beer.

I was anticipating something really hoppy. But I had a Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA earlier today, so this Hop Stoopid was a slight disappointment. Yes it’s good like they say, but its bitterness is a bit oversold.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange with an off-white head of enormous proportions. Great head retention! Perfume, ripe fruit, pine, resin, grass, and slight floral notes fill out the nose. Medium carbonation with a medium rich, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Pineapple, peach, honey, a bit of earthy malt, grass, and spruce on the palate. Strong bitterness to balance out the hefty malt sweetness. It may have 100+ IBUs, but it balances pretty damn well. Great lacing all the way down the glass. This is one of the best IIPAs I’ve ever had.
