Pours an pale orange color with a thick dense foamy head. Very clear and transparent, its very nice looking beer.
Smells amazing, TONS of big fruity cirtusy hops, my favorite. also getting some sweet malts in there as well. Very nice.
Taste very good too, not as hoppy as the nose implied but still a hop bomb. At first I get all those amazing hops followed by the malt to balance it out. It's still not totally balanced but I wish the hops shone through a little bit more.
Feels a little thick and syrupy, nice carbonation though. Very tasty brew and I think I could drink several of these babies. This definitely the best brew I've had from Lagunitas.

Second bomber of this stuff - split with soupedupdiesel for WC3 Day

A - Deep golden color with some lacing that fades pretty quickly

S - Hops, Grapefruit, Citrus, Pine, Lemon, smells lovely

T - Citrus, Pine, Hops, A fruity bitterness, slight alcohol punch. Very minor malt backbone... this hop bomb is a real treat.

M - Heavy ipa, nothing shy about these hops.

D - Tasty hoppy ipa which leaves me wants more. Just as good as I remembered.

Pours a golden color with a one finger head that gives way to some ok lacing. The beer is slightly hazy with very little visible carbonation. The aroma is of floral hops with citrus notes to it, there is a very small clove smell present. The taste is very smooth, there is a floral hop taste over top of a nice malt backbone, there is a little citrus flavor present as well. The mouthfeel is very smooth with a moderate amount of carbonation. The drinkability is very high, the alcohol content is completely hidden, even though some doubles are higher in apv. The taste is not biting or stingy like some double's tend to be. Overall this is an ultrasmooth drinkable beer.

Endeared for not only having some of the best tasting hoppy beers in the nation, but also for protecting their consumer's wallet with budget-minded price points- its no wonder beer's like Hop Stoopid are an obvious choice for hop-head near and far.

Its bright golden hues invite a closer look while its array of citrus and tropical hop aromas drift above the rim and continue to draw us in. With a playful backdrop of caramel and faint honey and light nutty notes; these sweetnesses give the fruit flavors a vibrant and juicy taste.

As its juiciness seeps into the tastebuds, the individual character of red grapefruit, tangerin, pineapple, apricot and mango all weave together to seduce the palate with its mouthwatering effects. Just beneath it all, the thin caramel plays out like graham cracker to dissolve off the palate late, like cotton candy and allow the hops to carry the ale's finish.

A finish of growing bitterness is of citrus pith and soft pine resin while the hops and alcohol warmth dry the palate effortlessly, leaving behind a fleeting malt presence but more importantly a clean smooth bitterness and a tame rosy-spicy bite.
