22oz bottle poured into a New Belgium globe.

A: Pours a clear golden/orange. Bone white, creamy looking head tops out at two fingers before it starts to settle. A quarter inch crown always remains. Thin rings of lacing.

S: Hop scents are tropical: big hit of pineapple, kiwi, passion fruit. Mild dank, herbal smell. Sugary, doughy malt. The nose is understated for a beer boasting 102 IBUs.

T: Mild pine resin, a touch soapy, leafy, minty. Bitterness is rather tame. It builds very slightly, but never challenges the palate. Tropical tastes start to come through. Pineapple mostly. Touch of peppery alcohol. Malt base starts sugary, but dries quickly, leaving some dough, toast and cracker toward the finish. The finish itself is mild and relatively short, consisting of a mild oily and resiny hop bitterness that recedes quickly and quietly.

M: Medium bodied. Slightly creamy texture is lifted away by fine, aggressive, and scrubbing carbonation.

O: This beer was extremely mediocre. It falls so far short of the IBU chest thumping on the label that I wonder if its underachieving wasn't part of the joke. For a beer of 102 IBUs, it has a very low perceived bitterness. The hop profile seems passive and flat too. No 'pop' to it at all. It's fairly priced at $6 a bomber, but even so, I'll pass on it in the future. Look to Lagunitas Maximus for a much better deal in both quality and price.

Undated bottle acquired from Bridgeview Liquors in Moorehead, MN.

Pours a clear amber with a nice white head that laces decently, though not as much as I would expect. Fine hop nose with a good dose of pine, earth and dankness with hints of citrus fruit. Light alcohol is found beneath it. The body continues in a similar vein, though the hop flavours are weaker and give way at times to the booze. Tons of pine, plays well with the biting bitterness that is barely balanced by the nice dry body. As always I am left wanting more hops!! Regardless a solid well put together DIPA that was quite enjoyable.

Celebrating IPA Day 2012 with this DIPA. The bottle has been in the fridge for about an hour. I'm pouring it into a tulip glass.

Very clear beer, with a golden orange color. It's a lighter hue than I expected. The head is small and made of white foam. A decent amount of rising carbonation, including a few heavy streams of constant bubbles, are visible. Pretty good lacing.

The beer has a big, hoppy aroma. Lots of citrus. There is a little bit of sweetness, but for the most part, all I can smell is hops and hop oils.

This is a very tasty DIPA. It certainly is hoppy, but it doesn't have a lot of sweetness, which is nice. Citrus hops are the strongest falvor, btu there is also a bit of pepper/spiciness from the hops as well. The sugar flavors are mild, almost like a touch of juice hidden behind the bitterness. The are probably a lot of malts used in the making of this beer, but you really can't taste them all that much.

The beer has a little bit of stickiness, but I've had regular IPAs that are this sticky, so this beer impresses me. The mouthcoat isn't too thick, but you can tell it is there. As you would expect, it has a bitter flavor.

This is another impressive beer from Lagunitas. I'm really glad it is now available in Maine. I'll certainly enjoy this one again!

Lagunitas Hop Stoopid Ale has a thin, off-white head and a clear, bubbly, orange-golden appearance, with some lacing left down the glass. The aroma is very piney and orange-smelling. Plus, some breadiness shows up. Taste is full of pine resin, citrus, orange peel, sugar, and bread. For a 102 IBU beer, it’s just NOT that bitter. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Lagunitas Hop Stoopid Ale finishes dry and refreshing. Overall, this is a wonderful beer. RJT
