COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

17thfloor (2443) - 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 (1623) - 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 I’m wishing it was bourbon.) Nose is intensely hoppy - tons of citrus and pine... almost powerful enough to be an air freshener (now there’s 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 (601) - 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. I’m also getting some cannabis on the palate. This sounds funny, but it’s not the first time I’ve 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 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 (4045) - 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.
