look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Serving: Bomber into a tall glass.

A: Crystal clear pale copper with a quarter inch of head. A fair number of bubbles coming up, not a lot. Not a lot of lacing.

S: Piney, citrusy, resinous. Great.

T: Incredibly (extremely) hoppy. So much so that the hops almost burn a little on the finish. Significant malt presence but it definitely plays second to the hops here. Very, very good.

M: This one just feels good in the mouth. The hops almost "burn" the mouth on the finish, and hop bitterness stays in the mouth long after a sip. Very nice.

O: Fantastic DIPA. I've come to expect excellent beers from Lagunitas and this one is no exception. Would definitely buy this again.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: more yellow than orange, not great head retention or lacing

S: sweet grassy piney hops, smells awesome, 5.0+

T: Surprisingly smooth for an 8% DIPA, plenty of hops with a sweet barley tang, finishes citrus and alcohol.

M: well carbonated, soft

O: Very good beer. I'm always pleasantly surprised with the smoothness in most Lagunitas IPAs. Not really hop stoopid, More like hop struggling with 9th grade algebra.

This is a very good beer! for those of you who have never tried Pliny the Elder this beer is for you. Very close to Pliny but of course falls short of the Legend of Pliny with some after taste and less pronounced aroma and flavor.

Citrus and pine aroma this beer is a fantastic beer. Easily available in the tri-state area Hop Stoopid stands tall.

A great every day beer, hides the alcohol well and tastes great.

Bottom line: grab some they are worth it!
