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.

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.

Good beer. Very drinkable for a higher abv%. Smooth and not extremely bitter.

Pours a golden copper color with about a finger of head. The nose has as much maltiness as it does hoppiness. The flavor is well-balanced, which is pleasant. However, I expected a hp bomb based upon the name.

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.
