Clear copper pour with white head. Overwhelming aroma of grapefruit hops. Heady taste of resinous malt with pine, grapefruit, and bitter hoppy finish. Nice hugely hoppy beer. Ok on the palate.

lamas (1371) - Washington DC, USA - APR 11, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Slightly different label than that in the picture. Mine says 7.7% ABV. A clear orange pour with a creamy light-tan head that leaves a little lacing. Pungent aroma packed with grapefruits, orange peels, and pine needles. Thin-bodied for the style. Enough sweet caramel upfront to keep from being too one-sided. Juicy oranges and bitter grapefruits follow. Dry finish with loads of spiciness nicely complemented by the slightly higher level of carbonation. No real complaints.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2009
UPDATED: APR 11, 2009 Fresh 09 bottle. Rating 993, 7 to go. Pours a clear glowing rich amber with a medium sudsy frothy beige head that disappears quickly but leaves nice lacing 3.5. Really nice fresh hop aroma, grapefruit, great sweet rich maltiness with touches of honey and resin. Aroma really reminds me of last years dreadnaught... which is definitely a good thing. First taste is peachy, salty, lighter but rich caramel, followed by grapefruit and light honey 7.5. A nice double IPA. Finishes a touch green and earthy, pine needles, with lingering sweetness trying its best to cover up the bitterness. Really nice mouthful, medium bodied, larger but softer carbonation bubbles, not sticky at all but rather drinkable.

trevor211 (1338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 9, 2009
Pours pretty - crystal clear orange, with a smallish head that fades to the point that this looks like a bourbon. (Damn. Now Iím wishing it was bourbon.) Nose is intensely hoppy - tons of citrus and pine... almost powerful enough to be an air freshener (now thereís an idea). Full body, great clarity with gobloads of hops, and a somewhat syrupy sweetness to counter... like it had a bit of Samichlaus added instead of a large malt contingent. It works, though - and the more you drink of this one, the more you like it. Good work!

arondee (581) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2013 Poured an amber red/Orange with a 1 inch white head. Smell is all hops with a bit of sweetness and pine. Smells a lot like a Christmas tree actually. Very well balanced between a hoppy bitterness and a malty sweet. I taste orange rind, pine needles, and a thick sweetness in the background. Even as the beer warms up the bitterness does not become overwhelming.Very good IPA.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - APR 8, 2009
Pours a light orange with a manipulatable head. Aroma was nice and super-hoppy. Flavor as well is bold and super-hopped. Iím also getting some cannabis on the palate. This sounds funny, but itís not the first time Iíve tasted that in an IPA. Also maybe a little yellow onion? Flavor is very good as a whole. Mouthfeel is surprisingly spritzy, not gooey as expected, and that works with the rest of this. Nice one, Lagunitas. Overall, very good.

Lagunitas Hop Stoopid is a crystal clear light amber ale with a dense, foamy, oily white head that leaves solid, dense sheets of foam on the glass. It has a bright, strong, hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine thatís a touch sweet and possibly floral. It has a fluffy medium body thatís lively with a dry finish. Itís nicely bittered and very lightly sweet. This is a full flavored and refreshing beer. The flavor is mostly citrus and pine, but there seems to be a grassy, floral nuance to it. Itís more flavorful than it is bitter, but it is quite bitter. It has a long, green aftertaste. This is how an IPA should be! Wow! This bomber was, like, four bucks!

22 oz bomber. Pours dark clear orange. White head that sort of lingers. Lacing is pretty pretty. Aroma of grapefruit on steroids (just after a 2 hour long workout). Tastes like biting into a grapefruit/flower flavored pineapple. Taste lingers on the palate, daring you to take another sip. Aftertaste becomes stronger and stronger grapefruit/hops. I donít know how they did it, but this beer is like you favorite IPA, except on steroids. Watch out, you might get hooked!
