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!

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 that’s a touch sweet and possibly floral. It has a fluffy medium body that’s lively with a dry finish. It’s 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. It’s 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!

Changed (462) - Ithaca, New York, USA - APR 6, 2009
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 don’t know how they did it, but this beer is like you favorite IPA, except on steroids. Watch out, you might get hooked!

Butters (4039) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Sampled at the Impromptu Butter’s 6th cellar clearance. Clear orange pour with ring of white head. Massive pineapple hop aroma could not improve in any way. Flavor is full and fruity pineapple and bitter and sweet. This is a phenomal Imp IPA. Great name and terrific price.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours an off-white head with a clover honey color body. Smells like grapefruit. Sweet and fruity hops giving notes of apricot, pineapple, and grapefruit. Very nice.

NDbeerdrinker (166) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours an amber color with a 2 finger white, full head. Aroma is big hops. Taste is floral and earthy hops. Strong hop taste lingers for a while after a sip. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and oily and just right. Exceptional beer.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2009
Very full and rich aroma, colored dark copper. Rather thick on the palate, but overall decent. Initial flavor includes an explosion of hops, but lingers on the tongue and continues to give more citrus and floral hop character, a really pleasure to drink. Amazing for the price!

Guerde (1280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2009
(bottle) Pours clear copper with a slightly off-white head that lingers and leaves great lacing. Definitely deserving of a 5. Huge aroma of mandarin orange, cotton candy, caramel, tangerines, and some pine as well. Warming suggests some hints of sauerkraut. Gets a little cheesy and peppery smelling as this warms some. Flavor starts out with a base sweetness of caramel, but quickly switches over to a lot of citrus. This citrus transition is signaled by a sharp spike of juicy tangelo, which then rounds out to a nice lingering grapefruit peel bitterness. Taste would’ve been just mediocre, but that citric spike is really nice. Mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation is spot on. I have to bump the overall score because this is a really good beer, and the low price is unmatched for a beer of this style and size.

baraciisch (2823) - California, USA - APR 1, 2009
Golden in color... Aroma just explodes at you as soon as you open the bottle of floral hops... Flavor is more malty than I expected and is actually well balanced... Finish is mildly bitter on the palate... Pretty decent beer...
