Lagunitas Hop Stoopid. I vaguely remember having this while at GABF this year but I found a bomber of it the other day so I can actually review it proper. I started by pouring this into my snifter glass and taking a big whiff. The aroma is all hops, specifically floral and pine. Smell goes on for days, and is pretty much incredible. Not too much of a head on this one, though what little there is clings desperately to the sides of the glass. Pretty high level of bitterness in this beer (it claims over 100 IBUs on the bottle), but it doesn't punch you in the face like others. In fact, there's a nice malt sweetness at the end of the whole affair. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky, though it doesn't gum up your tongue like others can do. Carbonation is pretty flat, which isn't a shock considering the style. As you continue to partake the bitterness does increase. As you do that the hop bouquet opens up, with lots of floral, grassy, and pine flavors shining through. Beyond that is some tart malt sweetness chased by heavy hop bitterness ending in a sticky and somewhat sweet, yet clean, finish. I wonder if the tartness and the clean finish has to do with how this was fermented. No real alcohol presence comes through in this beer, which is kind of surprising considering the ABV (8%) and style. Must be under the layers of hops. Overall this is a very solid and very drinkable double IPA. Quite enjoyable.
