This beer is delicious. Although I believe it could use even more hops. Still a very tasty and enjoyable brew!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours a nice gold color with a citrusy piney aroma. Big thick white head that sticks around. Flavor is faint but has a hint of citrus and maybe a little pine. Little bitter aftertaste but also faint. Overall not a bad beer but not a whole lot going on in this bottle, but what there is, is good. Easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clean and golden into snifter. Aroma of sweet pine and citrus. Flavor is is very dry and piney. It is not balanced so much with the sweetness but I tend to like it that way. High quality ale at a more than reasonable price. Lagunitas always delivers the goods.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear orange/honey mixture with a fantastic head and superb lacing. Aroma is straight up hops. Pine needles, grass, grapefruit, lemon, orange zest, tons of onion/garlic character, super dank! Taste follows the aroma nicely, except there’s a bready malt presence in the taste that is absent in the aroma. Super dry finish, sticky mouthfeel. Why am I not surprised that Lagunitas makes a Imperial IPA that rivals the best of the best? What a great beer.

Hop Stoopid is one of my recent favorites. I like that it’s 8% abv, so I can drink a bomber and not get bombed. The flavor has a big hop bitterness but with less malt and caramel than some of these bigger IPAs. There is a touch of sweetness, but the bitter and slightly dank hops are in the forefront. Grass and pine, along with the usual suspect: grapefruit. Nice dry finish. If you like hops, this is perfect for you. Cheers!

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz Bottle. Clear, light amber. Initial skunky aroma. Faded a bit and was able to find some floral, mango notes. Flavor is sweet malt, light herbal hops, mostly overpowered by a fizzy feel. I was really looking forward to this beer. Guess I got a bad one...

Flaska delad med @msbrindbergs, tack. Klar bärnstensfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Doftar kåda, tall och mango. Inte så fruktig humle utan mer kådig. Lite pepprig. Välbalanserad mellan sötma och beska. Jag förväntade mig lite mer kropp men mycket god.
