Lagunitas - Hop Stoopid

Aroma:  Massive pine and citrus aroma.  A touch of malt sweetness in the mix.

Appearance:  Golden amber color.  Bright filtered beer.  One finger of head with good lacing.

Flavor:  Pine and citrus hops to start, sweet and bitter in the middle, finishes fairly sweet with a lingering bitterness.  Little to no alcohol present.  Slight astringency as the beer warms.

Mouthfeel:   Medium body with some syrup characteristics.  Good carbonation.

Overall:  Finely crafted, well balanced hop bomb from Lagunitas.  If you are an IPA lover, this beer will satisfy.  The reasonable price will satisfy as well.  Excellent IPA that I will seek out in the future.  Recommended.

Poured into a large brandy snifter. Pours deep clear golden orange with a tall, biege head. The head dissipates slowly, leaving lacing on the side of the glass. Only a small amoutn of head is left atop the beer after the head retreats. Small, tiny bubbles can be seen rising along the side of the glass. The hop aroma is very strong. I detect those big piney, resinous and citrus hop aromas. There is some sweetness as well. It's a very delicious smelling West Coast IPA. As far as the taste goes, the hops aren't as powerful as the smell would indicate. Those big, juicy citrus flavors are balanced with that bitter pine flavor in the back end. The malt really doesn't come through in the flavor, which allows the balanced hop flavors to shine. The body is much lighter than the typical double IPA, registering on the lower end of medium. There isn't a lot of carbonation to speak of, but it is there. This beer is smooth with a dry finish. It is highly drinkable in terms of the style. This is an excellent and unique beer in many ways. If you're a hop head, do try this beer if you can find it.

Scored a 22-oz at Pinnocio's in Media earlier. Guy working promised me it would be fresh. No bottled on date. Wish craft brewers would do this more often- especially hoppy beers.

A: pours a clear gold with nice tight white head. Surprised of the clearness with all the hop extract they used.

S: smells like a typical CA hop bomb. Lots of nice citrus and some pine. Just smells of hop stickiness.

T&M: tastes just like the smell. Lots of hop citrus with a nice light, dry feel. Very refreshing on this muggy summer night. Bitter yet not astringent. Alcohol is noticeable in the back of the throat. I also taste some vanilla, lemon, tropical notes.

O: very well made beer. Lagunitas again delivers with this double IPA. Glad to have finally checked this one out. Affordabe at $7.00. Thanks for a delicious beer.

from notes:
pours a light orange filtered clear, looks light bodied. a very slightly off-white foamy sudsy head that will stick to the sides of the glass.
smells of pineapple. very distinctly of pineapple, sweet fresh fruits of citrus and pine aroma is secondary.
tastes well balanced, not as hoppy as i thought. perhaps not a fresh bottle, or maybe just not as hoppy as the name advertises. more of a pale ale than an IPA. citrus and caramel flavors.
mouthfeel is good. not a low temp for not very high carbonation.
overall a solid very drinkable beer. which there was a brewed on or a drink by date to gage whether or not i'm sampling a misleading bottle. not living up to its Hop Stoopid name.

Poured cold from a 22 oz. bottle into a tapered pilsner glass. Don't see a date.

A: Copper body with a thin white head. Some good lacing and persistent head around the outside of the glass.

S: Strong floral and citrus aroma with a little bit of clover honey down below.

T: Very pronounced hop flavor without being aggressively bitter.

M: Nice carbonation and tingle without being too tart or too dry. Definitely a strong point of the beer.

O: Great example of the style. If you're looking for hops you can't go wrong here.
