Aroma is all hops obviously. There is a little citrus there, but its mostly green and resin smells and flavors. I love it, but understand that its not for everyone.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Pours golden orange. Aroma is grassy, citrus, & bountiful fruit. Taste is grapefruit, orange, grass, & bitter. Not quite as bitter as I would have thought for 102 IBU, but a great beer. I wish there was more where I bought this because I would clean them out.

badgerben (5044) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Copper color with a medium head. Big aroma of oranges, tangerines and grapefruit. Lightly grassy as well. The taste is strongly bitter and acidic, almost harsh. The hop flavor nearly disappears, leaving only light pine.

Bottle from Friar Tuck, Savoy. With a name like Hop Stoopid, I expected the hops to dominate everything else. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was some balance to this beer. It reminded me a bit of Founders Devil Dancer, with its pleasant notes of grass, caramel, and honey, and a finish of pine and grapefruit. Nicely done for the style, and a beer I expect would age rather well.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2010 Happend by this in the grocery store the other day. What a nice surprise. This went great with pulled pork sandwhiches. Poured fairly light in color, a nice golden orange color, with a white head. Aroma was sharp piney hops, with a touch of sweet malt. Taste was much the same, with a nice long piney finish. Really just a well hopeed beer without too much malt getting in the way.

This really isnt that bitter for a 100+ IBUs, but then its a little on the sticky side from the malt. Theres a good caramel malt to this a resinous hop aroma, but this really seems less aggressively hopped than the Stone Sublimely Self Righteous that I bought the same day.

Bomber. Pours a gin clear copper color with a big nose of pine and citrus. Lots of grapefruit flavor, followed by a ton of bitter. Medium carbonation with a thinnish palate, but still a pretty good beer.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Clear copper orange with a thin but lasting off white cover. Nice pine, resin hop aroma, some caramel and toasted malts. Taste is more spicy hops, huge pine resin, a lingering bitterness, a touch of fruitiness either from the hops or the malt, sweet caramel and toffee base.

mmmbeer (1408) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2009
22 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured semi orange with brown and tan hues, zero to low carbonation. Non transparent, much like some people here. Aroma of hearty grapefruit, freshly cut alfafla, and pure magical beer goodness. Hits the mouth right in the jaw with a sweetened malt, the malt tries to tell you a story but the hops come in and take no prisoners, resin makes itself known in the middle, finish is pure hop bomb- to be expected from this brewery. Good stuff, for good people.

Poured from 22oz bottle into a thistle style glass (my favorite) leaving plenty of room for the four inch head! Appearance - The color is golden orange with a creamy off white head of tightly packed bubbles that recede somewhat quickly leaving perfect lacing. Smell - The first hint is of pine and grapefruit followed by tangerine and malt. Taste - Strong hops that linger, sharp and crisp. The aftertaste is bitter, and sweet like grass. Mouthfeel - The mouthfeel is awesome. A lot like PTE although a little heaver. Drinkability - Very drinkable! Like I said its a lot like PTE but more accessible. (I have to drive 80mi for the Pliny). I will most definitely buy it again... and again. Great beer and at $3.99 at the local market how can I go wrong!? Good job Lagunitas!
