Poured from an undated 12 oz. bottle: deep, clear golden to bronze with a sustained white head.

Upon opening the bottle, there was a strong piney aroma that quickly dissipated. Poured into the glass, the aroma never attains that huge aroma; it is faintly piney and floral with a sweet maltiness.

This is an extremely refreshing and drinkable ale. The flavor has a nice bitterness followed by a pleasant and faint vanilla maltiness. The ale is very balanced, though the hoppiness returns to linger on the palate.

Light in body with a refreshing, spritzy carbonation. The soft maltiness battles the hop bitters on the palate before a satisfying bitterness wins out.

The label states this is a "special homicidally hoppy ale". To me it is a hoppy, American pale ale. Either way, it is a very good ale that I highly recommend.

12 oz bottle poured clear amber with a small head that leaves ample lacing. A woody, earthy hop aroma is followed by a flavor that is a bit more fruity and a lot more piney in tasting.  Moderately bitter, with a suitable hop/malt balance.  Good carbonation level. Disappointing for Lagunitas in general and for the brewer of Hop Stoopid in particular.
