Good but not great. Pours a nice orangey color with an amazing hop aroma. Flavor is hoppy but nothing like a stone or hop devil even. A bit thin considering its size as a beer.

I was anticipating something really hoppy. But I had a Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA earlier today, so this Hop Stoopid was a slight disappointment. Yes its good like they say, but its bitterness is a bit oversold.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear orange with an off-white head of enormous proportions. Great head retention! Perfume, ripe fruit, pine, resin, grass, and slight floral notes fill out the nose. Medium carbonation with a medium rich, slightly sticky mouthfeel. Pineapple, peach, honey, a bit of earthy malt, grass, and spruce on the palate. Strong bitterness to balance out the hefty malt sweetness. It may have 100+ IBUs, but it balances pretty damn well. Great lacing all the way down the glass. This is one of the best IIPAs Ive ever had.

bottle picked up at midway in denton tx. WOW did i just really pay 5 bucks for this beauty? poured a gold with a white-off white head that fades away. aroma was nice with caramel, pine, citrus, and some peach or nectarine. flavor was almost as equally as impressive as the aroma. flavor was pine, pine, and more pine with a dandilion juice type bitter in the end. body was full with medium-high carbonation with a slick type feel to it. i was truly amazed at the quality of this beer for the price.

OK so this brew is hopefully not one of them Im going to stuff as many IBUs in this as a can and who cares how the flavor turns out, brews. Pours golden with a large white head. Aroma is hops as expected, mostly piny sticky hops which is the best kind imo. Some grapefruit and peach wich is nice. This brew is hoppy, a little more bitter than a PtE which I just had, but a solid malt flavor to keep it from being overbearing. This hop bomb deserves to be in the elite with the x2IPAs as theyve managed to balance bitterness with flavor and some sweetness in there as well. Not quite as good as PtE but close. Good Job Lagunitas, this is easily the best Ive had from this brewery.

well, they clocked over 100 IBUs on this uber-hopped heady brew....freakin ridiculous how these guys continue to push the boundaries of brewing...move over Stone, Lagunitas has officially become Cali-numero-uno! huge malty texture balance the stupid amount of hop addition. classic caramel mid-palate. the penultimate dry, crispy finish leaves me wondering how they did it? thank you, may i have another?

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 8, 2009
THOUGHTS: Wow. I didnt even know they bottled this when I saw it in the store. And boy was it ever hoppy, but not overly bitter. There was enough malt backbone to make all those IBUs tolerable. It was like Weyerbacher Double Simcoe when it comes to the intensity of hop flavors without being overly bitter. Not that the too taste the same. One of the most unique hop aromas Ive ever come across. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium to dark orangey amber with an average off-white head that mostly diminished and left excellent lacing. The aroma was light to moderate caramel malt, moderate to heavy pine resin, grapefruit, orange and almost slightly minty hops, honey and sort of a Pine Sol aroma. The initial flavor was sweet and bitter; while the finish was lightly sweet and a little more bitter with a long duration. There was caramel, honey, lemon, grapefruit, orange, pine and resinous hops. Great balance. The medium to full body was sort of creamy, but also oily and then dry with fizzy carbonation and a light astringent and light alcoholic finish.

22oz bomber. Filtered with a dark golden hue. Off whitehead. Citrus and piney aromas. Resinous hops. Medium to full bodied with a bright pronounced hop bitterness. Mildly woody and earthy with a big grapefruit note. This is really good!

joeneugs (6060) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 8, 2009
This is quite the hop bomb. It pours a brilliant amber color with a large, frothy off white head. The aroma is peachy, and grapefruit. No sweet flavors detected in the aroma. Little florals. Big piney, floral taste. Very bitter, with a surprisingly light body. Just a touch of caramel sweetness helps it go down, but this one is all about the palate clobbering hops. You can still taste it hours after its done. Wow.

Label is very similiar, but lacks the words "Sonoma Farmhouse by Lagunitas" and the circle...colors and pic are identical though.....hmm. Well, this appears to be the same brew. 22 oz. bomber. Clear, honey colored pour with a thin white head. Lacing was good. Piney, resiny aroma. Hops throughout, which Ive come to expect from a IIPA. Crisp on the palate. A good example of the style.
