Bomber into a Lagunitas mason jar.

A: Pours a deep medium-clear orange. Thin white head with wonderful retention. Good lacing.

S: Orange, mango, peach. Citrusy.

T: Hop forward grapefruit pineyness with a bitter dry finish. Just a touch of onion. Alcohol mostly hidden. Very tasty.

M: Medium carbonation. Resiny but not thick. Slightly sticky at the finish.

O: My favorite from Lagunitas. Citrus aroma gives way to a piney dryness that invites another taste. Hops are potent but not overpowering. Extremely drinkable for an 8% ABV. Perhaps the best combination of quality, availability, and affordability of any DIPA.

One of my favorite hoppy beers. Always affordable as well. on sale for $3.25 a bomber in Oregon.

Pours a bright and clear golden yellow, with a 2 finger white fluffy head that falls at an average pace. Lacing remains, along with some bubbles.

Smell is out of this world. Bright and bold aroma hops with fruity tones. Peach, Apricot, Pear, Mango, Flowers. Some pine in there, mostly floral and fruity hop zest, its almost perfect smell to me.

Taste isnt quite the same as the smell but its very good. A very balanced effort here, with floral hops in your face. Also a good malt backbone on this with biscuit and caramel. I think its more fruity in the nose than the taste, as its more on the hoppy and malty side. Very balanced. Not a very long bitter aftertaste but its there.

Mouthfeel is inching toward thick, but its by no means syrupy. Its just right for 8% abv. Medium carbonation and balance in this brew lets me give it a 4 in feel, as I think its the weakest part of the beer, but still works for what it is.

Overall one of my favorite go to's when its available. Try this now if you havent its just stoopidly good.

A - Sparkling gold, hues of yellow through the light, 1 1/2 finger head, nice retention.

S - Big, big, massive aroma from this one, pineapple, mango, oranges, piney, sweet, resiny, this smells amazing.

T - Very balanced, nice malt, great hop mixture, they definately brought out the complexitiy of the hop from sweet to bitter. Something new is revealed with each sip, very good.

M - Light to medium body. Nice carbonation, resiny goodness from the hops.

O - I wish this was on tap more as well as 6 packs. This is fantastic and I wish I had more to share. This is a great solid IPA, something enjoyable for everyone.

Hard to find it much fresher: this was bottled two weeks ago. Pours golden with a little orange. Eggshell white head leaves exceptional lacing. Smells like the freshest piney hops you can imagine, a little citrus but really the aroma here is all about the pine. The taste is incredibly balanced. Hops coat the mouth, but its not overly bitter or sweet. Again the piney hops are what really take the show. Mouthfeel is medium to light and the finish isn't too dry. Ok so I've had this said to me, but I have never had it fresh enough to make a comparison (the day I went to both Russian River and Lagunitas I was a little too overwhelmed) but Hop Stoopid tastes and smells exactly, and I mean EXACTLY like Pliny. Just sayin'. When you have them fresh they are indistinguishable. And of course, both are exceptional.
