Pours a slightly amber gold with thick white head. Aroma is wonderful of citrus hops, slightly floral, pine, and grass. Flavor is very pleasing, but no big surprise compared to aroma. Additional slight sweetness and caramel. Very solid DIPA and very happy that it is readily available and priced so well.

Une fois encore, Lagunita’s m’émerveille avec ce produit haut en fraîcheur! La Hop Stoopid est un autre exemple parfait d’équilibre entre la puissance des saveurs et le raffinement du palais. Le larynx est sollicité de toutes part; autant par la présence des forts houblons aux frais parfums d’agrumes que par les malts résineux, huileux et grillés. Quel dialogue fantastique! Bien que très longue en bouche, chaque gorgée emmène à la suivante avec un naturel inquiétant qui me ferait terminer la bouteille avec empressement si ce n’était du frein que je dois m’imposer. Tout mon appareil buccal et olfactif redemande de cet élixir vivifiant qui agit sur mes sens tel le premier soleil du printemps.

All the other reviews will fill you in on the piney resinous grapefruity passionfruitish flavour and the queen Anne’s lacing on golden honey hues. All I want to say is buy lots of this beer when you see it and convert all your boys/girls to the way of the IPA. This beer kills. Thanks Lagunitas.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head. Aroma is slightly sour with some hops and malt in the mix. Medium body, taste is a good balance of hops & malt. Finish continues with the sour theme. Not bad!

Golden with soapy head. Nose is floral hops, pineapple, tropical fruits, citrus, pine. Taste matches, very fruity and smooth, pineapple and mango. Pretty low carb, a bit sticky but not overly thick mouthfeel. Very good.

Barnacle_Ed (26) - Milpitas, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle poured into glass. Beautiful golden color with thin lacing. Smell is a little lacking but I picked up the hints of pine and citrus one would expect from an IPA. Taste is excellent with bitter pine and tangy grapefruit balanced well by sweet malt - very flavorful witbout being too overpowering. Got a slight taste of alcohol at first but didn?t notice it after the first few sips. Definitely one I?ll be keeping an eye open for in the future, especially since it’s quite reasonably priced in my area.

Bomber bottle from mchughs. Pours clearish amber with white foam head. Aroma is pineapple, cat piss, pine, spruce, citrus. Aroma is resinous hops. Flavour is caramel malt sweet with citrus, tropical fruits. Strong bitter finish. Big body which balances the bitter finish. Oily resinous hop mouthfeel. Citrus, pine aftertaste. Lasting finish. This is really fantastic.

22 oz bottle that poured a clear golden yellow with a small white head that left a good lace ring and a lot of carbonation bubbles. The aroma was hops with a citrus nose and the taste is grapefruit and pine. A good balance maybe slightly bitter, but a very clean finish.
