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.

Had it from the bottle, so looks and smell didn't have much of a factor. Good IPA with slight citrus character.

From a 22oz bottle. Amber with a half finger of head. Smells of pine resin. A sticky feel. Caramel malt backbone with some pine resin, citrus, and bitterness. Yes, it's a hop bomb, but there's plenty of depth too.

Mostly piney hops with a little citrus. Not as hop forward as I expected, a little dry on the finish. Pretty decent.

I’m a hop head and can barely imagine a better one. It’s 8% abv is also just right. Have never had it from a tap but next time (first and only time) I’m in Petaluma, CA will learn if that makes it better.

Golden copper hued body; thick, sticky, rocky head. Piney, spicy aroma. Fine tasteful blend of grainy malt and zesty hop punch and bitterness; plenty of cracker and bread crust. Heavy body; rich and crunchy; some boozy heat and sugary heft.

Ah yeah, a fine - heck, very fine, IPA. It's been around and still delivers a hop bitter, densely flavored punch to the palate.

Decent taste of hops, but overpowered by a malt extract! Slight bitterness that stays on the tongue. Have tried several times hoping it was my mistake but always there. Not bad, just better out there

Bottle:
Lovely clear medium gold, medium-large fluffy white head, nice sheets of lacing early.

Nose is medium brown cracker with a grassy to citrus rind bitterness. A mix of orange/tangerine peel and zest, grapefruit pith, dry grass and pine needles.

More of the bittering agents in the taste, as expected from the 100+ IBUs. The malt comes through from the nose, but only for a fleeting moment. The more piney hop notes rush in with a vengeance. Grapefruit and tangerine ride along the wave of piney-ness. A bit of earthy dank sneaks in the back of this quite crisp, but somewhat biting beer.

A classic that isn't a singular bitter bomb. Bitter, yes, but there is a bit of a classic citrusy/piney flavor profile that gets wrapped by the bitterness.
