Bottom Line, THANK YOU Lagunitas!!!
Anyone who gives this beer lower than a ’4’ rating either ’a’ doesn’t like beer...or, ’b’ doesn’t like ipas...therefore, both should NOT rate beer in the first place (IMHO)...sorry for the rant!!!
For some reason before I really rated this beer (maybe I did on other BA sites?!)...anyway, I gave this just an "OK" rating...I’ve re-visited since my move to Austin TX and...HOLY CR@P!!!....this is one of the closest beers that has come to ’perfect’ (as my favorite style is IPA
)...this beer is .just down right fantastic!...I definitely ’think’ this beer gives stone and dog fish-head (which I’m not all that crazy about) a run for their money!!!...Why won’t anyone give ’ANY’ beer a ’5’ ??!!!!!....are we waiting for....????!!!...(I don’t want to discuss religion, but seriously!!)...Chasin’ Cheers :~)

650ml bottle. (As Lagunitas Hop Stoopid) Pours a clear, amber-orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Big, hoppy aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruit and caramel malt. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, peach, orange, mango, caramel malt and grass with a long, bitter, dry, resiny finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. A name that delivers! Nice!

Light taste. Pours well. Pleasant aftertaste. Smooth to drink. Enjoyable with a little bite. Will definitely revisit but not a single item that sets it apart.

Very hoppy smell, but fairly subtle hoppy taste. Has a light taste even though it is called Hop Stoopid

Pour from bomber, rich clear gold with admirable head. Nose of pine, simcoe, super ripe fruit, juice and pith, sweet flowers, sticky hop resin. The whole nine yards of an essential IIPA. Flavor is impeccably paired pine and thick viscous ripe juice, skillfully met with a taming malt that makes it all go down with almost too much ease. A must-try at a great value.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap. Black Swan, Leeds. Hazy, dark gold. Bubbly, thick, lasting, pale cream coloured head. Beautifully fresh, rich, sweet, tropical fruit. Loads of peach and passion fruit. Behind that there’s a lovely, dank, leafy resin character. Big, sweet biscuit, grainy malts too. Smells fantastic. Taste is rich sweet, turning fruity, zesty, piny bitter. Smooth, full palate. Soft carbonation. Finishes long, resinous bitter, with a lip sticking sweet close. Lovely.

Pretty decent one, but not a 100. Beautiful color and foam, pours perfectly. A bit on the sweet side

Its a good beer. My buddy Lemon left it for me in 22 oz bottle. Drank the bottle and it was nice but IPA not my gig.
