Hop Stoopid is a great pour. Nice light amber-golden body, solid head, sticky lacing.
Smell is very aromatic. Juicy, and sticky with a tropical pineapple/papaya sweetness. Lots of hop leafiness, with a blast of pungent cannabis. The raw hop oil/leaf complexity is astounding. This is one damn fine smelling beer. I honestly can't stop smelling it, addicting as all hell. Definitely one of the better aromas I've had the pleasure of smelling in quite some time. It's a high just from inhaling the gorgeous dank fragrance.
With a nose like that, this is looking extremely promising. First sip is very juicy, yet still well-balanced. Upfront has a nice juicy tropical hop profile, with loads of tangy sweet pineapple. Which is quickly balanced by some nice bitterness - aggressive hop oil, sappy pine, and waxy leafiness. Flavors blend really well together, working nicely with a semi-sweet malty backbone.
Loads of hop complexity here, awesome aroma, nice balance. Very high quality DIPA from Lagunitas. Definitely worth seeking out.

Julian dating on the 22oz bomber revealed to be from May 20th (so almost 2 months on this by the time I cracked it open and poured it into the tulip glass). Might have wanted it a bit fresher, but that is no news flash. 1 and 1/2 fingers of white head which dissipated quickly and left some nice lacing. Interesting tangerine hue in the light, very tempting. Aromas of pine, grapefruit, and bitterness (yes, bitterness... this IS a 102 IBU brew!). Pine notes on the front wave of the taste profile, along with a citrusy (almost lemony) mid-note, with a big bitter finish. Continual carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel, and a slightly oily presence on the back end. This had a nice balance for a big beer, and though I was v. happy... would have to try one that was super fresh to make this a go-to choice.
