Poured in to a Duvel tulip. Deep orange color and plenty of head. Smell of floral and piney hop presence. The taste is unique for an Imperial IPA, in my opinion. It has a very bitter earthy flavor akin to unripened fruits. Not a bad drink at all and something to grab next time you see it - especially as it's only $3.99. All Hail Lagunitas for making such an affordable and tasty IIPA!

Pours a clear, almost orange-gold. A nice balance of hops on the nose. I was expecting more with a name Hop Stoopid, but I won't hate 'cause it is still nice.
Beautiful, balanced hoppiness on the front and the depth of this beer comes out as it lingers in the mouth.
Wait, now I am starting to understand the name. Hop Heads, enjoy.

Appearance: Clear, bright and golden/copper. Moderate carbonation and thick white foamy head on pour that settles to lacy skim on surface. Thick lace on side runs off and leaves a few patches.

Aroma: Instant aroma once I opened this one. Strong citrus hops, pine, and floral. A bit of pear comes through
Taste: Dry and tangy with grassy bitterness. Orange peel, pine, tropical fruit. The malt goes well with this hoppy beer.

Mouth: Moderately dry, thinnish, with some alcohol tingle.

This is my second favorite IPA from Lagunitas. Very fresh tasting, this was bottled just 10 days ago. SUPER FRESH.

Shared 22oz. bottle that Davey brought back from Portland. Poured into tulip glass golden yellow/orange color with a very active body and an off white head that lasted for a bit and left great lace all over the sides of the glass. Smells peppery, floral, grapefruit. Taste very Pliny-esque, floral hops, grapefruit. Medium body that seems to thicken up as it warms. This is an Awesome IIPA

The brew is a beautiful coppery honey color with great clarity. An enthusiastic nearly white head settles to a finger and leaves a ton of lace from where it settled. Head sticks around for a good while as I drink it -- lacing is impressive.

Piney and floral hops, a bit of citrus. Some honey-sweetness in the nose.

Delicious hop flavor with a nice sweetness balancing it. I would swear this was brewed with a bit of honey if I didn't know otherwise -- impressive use of malt despite the hopped-up character. Bit of breadiness as well. The bitterness increases as it goes, and the hop character drifts from sweet and floral to a bitter and piney aftertaste that sends me right back to the glass for the up-front sweetness.

Medium body, carbonation is creamy and mild. if something doesn't have a dry finish, does it have a wet finish?

I want some good cheddar, but I'll live without it. I foresee no trouble finishing this bomber.

If you like hops this is where its at. I have not had too many DIPAs, but I have had a few, and this is just pure hops to me, I don't know how you could get any more hops in a beer. And good hops they are, taste is great, nice, golden color, light for an IPA but I guess that is the brewing process where they use the hops extract and it makes it more pure. Goes down smooth, hits you in the mouth, and you get that bitter hops flavor in the back of your mouth after you take a sip. Besides the hop, you really don't taste anything else, but that is the idea, so there isn't much else going on or much complexity to the beer....but that is the beauty of it.

All in all a very good beer, the 1st I've had from Lagunitas and I would like to try some more of their stuff. I'd buy this again. Definitely worth a try, especially for IPA/hop lovers. Good stuff.
