Absolutely everything a double/imperial IPA should be. Made me change my entire views on IPAs in general as it allowed me to enjoy hops! Immediate hop/floral aroma upon opening of the 22 oz. bomber. Pours amber/light orange with a small but thick head and robust lacing. Once poured into the snifter, the bubbles continued to rise up in a stream from the bottom of the glass for a long while. Mouthfeel is very smooth and *surprisingly* balanced and extremely drinkable despite its 102 IBUs! First flavor is slightly fruity and hoppy with minimal bitterness- again, the balance is ideal. Long hop aftertaste indeed. Wonderfully refreshing.

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

mambossa (142) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2015
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.

Garrold (2834) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2015
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.

Really nice imperial ipa. It’s a great imperial for those that don’t like bitter IPA’s. It has enough malt to really balance out the hops. Very nice change of pace ipa.
