Hops come to mind upon first taste... the strong Hop character is backed by simple yet flavorful malt. A biscuit or victory malt seems present but obviously the little green guys take the stage. This beer captures the aroma and perceived taste of hops. I love the boil steps when home brewing because of the fresh hop smells.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bright hazy golden and a nice dusting of filmy head and soft lacing. Zesty tangerine and treacle soaked grapefruit. Tense sweetness throughout but masked by a dangerously pithy bitterness. Grapefruit, of course, but a herby spice and silky solid carbonation. Finishes not too gritty, bitter citrus and puckering sweetness on the linger just makes the next sip even easier.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"the look was nice, and what is expected of the style...ich thick foam resting atop a golden orange body. Even the cap smelled of resinous hops. the aroma is quite appealing...good mix of hops here, some spice, pine, and citrus. mouthfeel hides the alcohol well and goes down smooth. flavor is good, grapefruit & pine resin, with a touch of spice and alcohol. Overall, a very good brew, especially for hopheads. Similar to Anderson Valleys, but better. Reminds one a little of the fresh aroma of a Lagunitas Imperial Red or IPA - hopefully this one isn’t plagued by consistency issues like those 2. "

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating pour une Lagunitas Hop Stoopid. Au nez, c'est le caramel qui sort en premier et l'amertume par la suite. En bouche, le caramel amer frappe nos papilles. Le houblon n'est pas présent a par avec son côté amer. La finale très amère et assez dépourvue de subtilité. Goûte la Lagunitas standard mais plus amère.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Golden Orange color, with fluffy white head that leaves beautiful lacing. Aroma is sticky hops, a bit of caramel. Taste is dry, citrus, resin, nice bite from the hops balanced with subtle malt. Overall, this was my first 100+ IBU beer the first time I had it and after enjoying this so much I became a hop-head. Still one of the best DIPAs you can buy.
