From a bomber into a snifter.

Color is a really light orange. Very clear and I can see the carbonation rising in the beer. No lace at all.

Right away the smell is oranges and pears with hops in the background. It smells really fruity. More than I've found in some "fruit beers".

Taste follows well. Orange aroma is more tangerine and pear and peach in the mouth. Bitter hops totally there. I like that the beer is hop forward without being overwhelming.

Mouth feel is strong as well. Flavors are huge and last several min on the tongue before fading.

Overall this beer had a great price tag and big flavor. A must buy for hop lovers.

Hop awesome is more like it! There is a distinct pear and tangerine aroma. Same follows into the flavor with a very refreshing, but, dry bitter finish. Yet another excellent brew from Lagunitas.

Not bad. Definitely hop forward and a decent flavor. Not really fruity or grassy or malty. Kind of a mix. They did a good job hiding the alcohol. Just a slight warming sensation, I'm ok with that.

Cloudy in a slowly swirly mystical golden pour with thin white top. Fruit and malt aromas aren't my favorite. Wow, though, the flavor is semi-sweet and malty with only a pleasant bitterness of some resin, and a super-clean finish. So balance. Much tasty.

Great beer! Still seems very hoppy, although I cannot find a date on the bottle. I'm not sure if Lagunitas dates thier beers, but they should. Atleast date IPA/ hop forward style beers, to ensure the consumer gets them nice and fresh and hoppy!

This is one of my favorite IPAs, it exactly what I look for; hoppy, strong, a little sweet. Near perfect.

I'm mad at myself for never drinking this beer before now. It's pretty much one of those perfect DIPAs. The most surprising aspect is the bitterness completely disappears after each sip. As usual Lagunitas shows off west coast style perfectly.

Poured from a bottle into a pint

A. Pours a sudsy 2 finger head. Transparent golden yellow. Nice head retention. Confetti lacing covering the head omission.

S. Nice pineapple, banana, strawberry aroma and some sweet bready malt.

T. Agreeing with the nose I get banana and strawberry hop presence which reminds me of Nelson Sauvin. Little bitterness. Grassy note on the back end.

M. Light carbonation and light to medium body (3 on a scale 1-10). Some dry finish.

O. A good IPA especially for the price ($3.99 22oz). For that price it's a steal. An DIPA with good flavor that is almost sessionable on a hot summer day. One of the lighter DIPA's i've had and that's the reason I say it's sessionable even for a DIPA. It's just easy drinking. No inyour face bitterness. Not heavy. Just a nice tasty DIPA.

Pours a dark yellow almost orange with a fizzy head that laces the glass. The smell is full of grapefruit and pine as well as some herby, almost grass scents. The taste was a love note to hops which are very much center stage in this beer. Good amount of flavor throughout, just wish the finish was a little cleaner but a must try for any hop heads.

Great hoppy flavor, great color, aromatic pleasure. And for only $3.99 a bomber Hop Stoopid will definitely be in the house.

Bottled on January 8th, 2015. Poured from a bomber into a tulip.

A: Pours a golden color with a 2 finger head of white foam. After a minute or 2 the head fades to a thin film that leaves a few tiny spots of lacing.

S: Pungent aromas of spicy, zesty hops with a kind of grassy smell to it. A bit of piney hop aromas as well. The nose of this beer is pretty one dimensional as all I'm really getting is earthy/herbal hops that are almost unbearable.

T: Flavors of dank, spicy hops and a good amount of pine. Once again very one dimensional, with no malt detectable whatsoever.

M: Medium body with high carbonation and a bold, crisp mouthfeel. There is a high amount of bitterness that leaves a long, lingering finish on the palate.

O: I am a big fan of double IPAs, however I was not a fan of this beer. It is the definition of a "hop bomb" that doesn't have much balance at all. There is no malt detectable whatsoever, and in my opinion this hurts the beer by making it very unbalanced to the point of being almost undrinkable. At first I thought maybe the beer was spoiled, but the code of 008 5 on the neck of the bottle shows it was bottled on January 8th, 2015 (5 weeks ago). I guess I'm just not a fan of this one. Maybe I'll give it another go sometime down the road, but I probably wouldn't drink this beer again.

Poured sideways into tulip. Medium head with tremendous resurgence upon agitation. Amber/Orange in color. Aromatics were largely floral and piney with a medium hint of sweet maltiness on ~3rd smell. Tremendous pine and citrus capacity with underlying floral notes. Medium body with a lingering spritz carbonation (especially after agitation). Overall, a fantastic, richly bitter beer that does the job. Cheers!

I drank it a month old and it still retained some aroma. Nice. Still had a big body.

Poured into a plastic cup at Mardi Gras. ($5.29 bomber at Steins)

A: Golden amber with an off-white one finger head that lingers. Nice lacing.

S: Grapefruit, piney hops, citrus action.

T: Hops are stupid, as advertised. Grapefruit-y citrus with a bit of orange. Medium bitterness. Smooth, semi-sweet. An easy drinker.

M: Medium with medium, carbonation and a dry finish.

O: Another winner from the doggie in California. Not my favorite IPA, but a hophead's delight, for sure.

Had forgotten how good this is, and in these days of $10+ bombers what a great value it remains.

Pungent, dank hops-- a bit more of the onion-y style than I remember (But I like that!). This is in contrast to the more fruity hops of Sucks.

What's old is new and what's new is old... definitely bringing this back as a go-to DIPA for me.
