Poured light copper, with a big, bubbly head. Nice floral aroma. Nice dry, complex (grapefruit, grass) hop flavor with a little bit of sweetness at the end.

Terrific smelling. Pine and grapefruit. Itís thin, a bit too thin for me, but definitely in line with the style. The hop punch isnít as strong on the tongue as it is on the nose.

dark golden pour with nice white head. Aroma is slight pine hop, mostly grapefruit apricot hop aroma. Wonderful grapefruit-ey hoppy bitterness all the way through, just enough alcohol and malt to balance the experience. Long bitter juicy finish. Great DIPA.

Brentv (335) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap. Pours a dark yellow with a white head and lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus. Taste is a delicious malty body with lots of citrus and fruity hops. Nice bitterness, but not overpowering. A big beer. Lovely.

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

Mindwarp (45) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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.

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.

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 thereís 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 itís 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!
