4.25/5  rDev +1.2%

22oz bomber served in an oversized wineglass.

pours a bright, golden amber tone with a finger and half creamy beige head; excellent retention and great lacing all over the place. gorgeous beer. well done.

vibrant, aromatic nose is rife with citrus (notably grapefruit) and pine. not much of a malt presence at all. flavor delivers the promise of the nose: tons of citrus and pine, with pine opening up more mid-palate; a hoppy bitterness persists through the finish. a touch of sweet malt evident in the background. a very drinkable, tasty DIPA. medium-plus bodied on the palate with adequate carbonation.

4.33/5  rDev +3.1%

A: Pours a clear dark golden color with a good head that fades to decent lacing.

S: Aroma of pine, lots of pine, with a bit of citrus and malt sweetness in the background.

T: taste follows the aroma piney/citrus bite up front with just a bit of malt sweetness. The bitterness leads to a dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth and well balanced. No hint of the 8% ABV.

O: great beer for the style. This is what the world of IPA's is all about.

4.23/5  rDev +0.7%

Sample: 1 bottle 2012

A: Golden yellow, moderate internal carbonation, slightly hazy, pours a very light foamy head

S: Very fragrant, heavy citrus and tropical fruits, grapefruit, pineapple, even some pine notes

T: Incredibly flavorful (but at 102 ibu's it's no surprise), reminiscent of the nose, citrus and tropical fruits dominate with some herbal/pine elements, bitter, but a nice balance

M: Quite bitter but still smooth, heavy citrus/pine aftertaste, a bit drying on the palate, but is to be expected

O: A powerful ipa, fragrant and smooth, definitely one to be tried by any lover of hops

Fom a 22oz bomber in a room temp pint glass.

A- clear golden-light orange color with a mega three-finger head and lots of sticky lacing.

S- citrus and pine hops battle to the finish. Dry and oily resin aroma as well.

T-Liqiud pine hops cascade accross the palate to start. Smooth citrus hop flavors follow. A dry hop bitterness finish. Yummy.

M- medium, with decent carbonation. Slightly oily and dry. I thought that it may be thicker.

O- 102 I.B.U. for U is BEEE-U-T-FULL!!
This is agood looking,tasting, and smelling beer that hides it's 8.0% abv with aroma and flavor. A drinkable winner.

This was my first beer from Lagunitas and I enjoyed it a lot. Im in an alcohol controlled state and I can still pick up a 22 oz bottle at a local store for $5.50

The moment I started pouring this stuff out the smell just hit me. There was no need at all to put your nose up to it.

Most bitter beer I have had before this is either arrogant bastard or nugget nectar. They are all pretty close, but I think the Hop Stoopid has them beat by a bit. After the 3rd/4th sip it starts to even out real nice. Hop heads will enjoy this one

Will be buying this again for sure!
