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.

Pours golden with minimal white head in tulip. No age found on bottle.

Smell is malty with musty hops. Not unpleasant but old and lackluster.

Taste is sweet malts. Mild bitterness. Nothing earth shattering.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied.

Overall this is good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear golden color with a thin frothy off-white head.

Aroma: Sweet candy-like profile. Some grain. Nothing really sticks out.

Taste: Like taking a bite of cheap gummy candy. The candy sweetness of the hops does not bode well and the light caramel malt isn't able to save this one. I've tasted this flavor profile in other IPAs and I'm not a fan. Low bitterness and only very slightly dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and average drinkability.

Final Thoughts: Not what I was expecting based on my enjoyment of both Lagunitas Hop Stoopid and DayTime IPA. Would I drink it again? No.

I am having this at the spot pizza and grill in point pleasant, nj. The big storm still shows around here and so one has to compete with the national guard for a spot at the bar.

It comes in a pint glass with a tiny head that reduces to a thin layer immediately while leaving massive lacing. Body is the clearest light amber with no carbonation visible.

I have this just after I had a flower power IPA and the nose here is clearly inferior. There is not much else than the typical IPA hoppy note. In fact the more I try to get something the less I get.

Taste is also typical IPA without the overpowering bitterness of so many others. I take this as a plus.

I got quite some refreshing carbonation on the tongue, much more than visible. It is slightly watery but really not much.

Overal a good example of the style that is not extreme on the bitterness and therefore will appeal to newcomers of the style
