Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Clean this mess up or else we'll all end up in jail...those test tubes and the scale...just get 'em all outta here..." He was referring to the complex super-critical-CO2 hop extraction equipment set up on the table in the lab across from the brewhouse. Hop extracts are for the BIG brewers, he thought - suitable only for crummy sub-standard and barely-passable industrial lagers, not the subtle and elegant craft beer made here. But wrong he was. The New Brewer does not eschew any possible inputs. In this case the mountain of extracts will replace the mountain of hop vegetative material in the kettle thus creating cleaner hop flavors and preventing the otherwise spinach-like mess of a kettle full of super-hopped wort from clogging up a pump or worse. The sensuous honey-like amber ooze was administered intravenously to the wort kettle and the sacrament was complete. Another kettle of Hop Stoopid is once again raised up and fermented on high.

Clear deep golden color with white cap and good lacing.

Aroma of bright, shiney piney hops wit some herbal tones.

Taste of clean piney hops with a surprising kick of something like pineapple or tropical like fruit that's very well comingled with the underlying malt. Not an array of flavors but enough to tell me this is a complex brew. I neither scent nor taste the alcohol and didn't realize it was 8% until I read the description after the review.

Medium full texture with balancing carbonation.

Whew, of course I was expecting hop flavors but these come across as rather sophisticated in the way they blend together weaving in and out like the strands of a rope with each contributing without competing. A very competent beer that's easy to drink.

I was hoping for better. This beer poured a pretty golden amber. Odd bubbles suspended and never cleared during drinking. Small head and very piney smell. Taste is simalarly pine and almost metallic and very dry. Not very enjoyable but I will finish it. It’s making me very thirsty.

Another Lagunitas delivery. Poured from a bomber into My new New Belgium tulip glass. Nice presentation, a golden yellow perhaps veering to a light orange. Good nose but that is not why one returns to this beer. Thin head but I do not complain. Initial taste is really grand. Hoppy for sure but with an slice of pineapple. Surprising. Slight hint of alcohol but there are plenty of IPAs with more than 8%. Call it welcoming. I call it fine. Served colder the better.

Pours out a hazy amber color with an off-white head. Head is a little foamy with moderate retention. Plenty of lacing as well.
The nose is tropical. I'm getting sweet pineapple and orange with some earthiness in the middle and a nice hops bite to balance out the sweetness. Aromatic to say the lease
The taste is most bitter that the nose would lead you to believe. You get the same fruit with toned down sweetness and a bitter kick to the palate. Tasty.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. Carbonation is lifting but not to much. Feels right.
This one gets a solid 4. Its pretty damn tasty with a great price point to boot.
