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.

Served out of a bomber and into an Irish pint glass.
Appearance- golden color medium carbonation. Some lacing.
Smell- notes of grapefruit and pine.
Taste- heavy hop notes coming through but well balanced with the malt.
Mouthfeel- nice pleasant mouthfeel.
Overall- great beer. For a beer over 100 ibu's this incredibly well balanced but not for the faint if heart. Also very affordable at half the price if it's competitors.

Pored from a bottle to a generic tulip glass.

A- pours a clear, deep golden color. The carbonation bubbles rise to the surface quickly producing a bubbly head that fizzled away leaving no lacing.

S- Hoppy. Grapefruit, and pine.

T- Crisp. Taste follows the scents. Grapefruit up front.

M- Med body. Taste does not linger in mouth. No bad aftertastes.

O- Very refreshing. Enjoyable.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a dark golden color with a good one finger head that has some staying power, and leaves quite good lacing. Real nice floral and citrus notes, and you can definitely smell the hoppiness of this DIPA. Definitely the hops hit you right away, but a nice citrusy taste with a little hint of pine. Overall the tastes are very balanced. The beer is quite balanced with its carbonation and goes down surprisingly smooth for a beer with so much alcohol. Overall, an exceptional beer that is one that I enjoy, and hope to more often, very much.

Poured into a 13 oz glass, dated 016 finally fresh. Pours a clear orange with a one inch sticky white head, nice lace. Smell is large pine, marijuana, orange, and pineapple. Taste is all of that, with dank marijuana leading the way, with a grapefruit finish. A big body for the style, plenty of life, not dry, and very drinkable. This is my style double IPA, love this fresh.

Poured into a 21st Amendment pint from a bomber and the brew is a light clear straw yellow with nice carb bubbles and a 2 finger off white head that dwindles away fairly quickly. The lacing is splotchy on the glass.

The aroma is heavy hops, both fruity and citrusy, more toward the grapefruit end and some malts in the background. The flavor is very nice and a bit shocking at the same time, with it following the nose, but yet for a 102 ibu brew there is no harsh bitterness nor alcohol (at 8%) perceived (the shocking part). Also shocking is the OG of 1.085, I would have thought the alcohol would have knocked your socks off but this is not the case.

The mouthfeel is medium light with a fairly dry finish and good carb.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Golden orange with a creamy three finger head. Looks really nice in my Samichlaus snifter.

S: Peaches! Really fruity hops. A little grapefruit but the peach aroma is very dominant. A little malt and some floral notes. Smells so delicious!

T: Very similar to the nose. Peaches, malt, and some hop bitterness that is very tame for 102 IBU's.

O: Definitely worth trying if you can get it. If you like IPA's with fruity hop flavors/aromas this is a good one.

Bomber bottle poured into a snifter.

A- a semi-translucent (chill haze) orange, slightly amber, with a thin white head. Not much lacing to be had.

S- an almost honey sweetness, with tangerine and grapefruit notes. An almost entirely citric hop presence.

T- Sweet, but not overly so. Tangerine, grapefruit and some peach. The citric hops crush had towards the end with a balancing bitterness that really stays on the palette. Decidedly a Lagunitas brew.

M- a light carbonation with a fairly light mouthfeel for a double IPA. I really wish there was a more creamy mouthfeel here.

O- Good, but not great. Wouldn't seek it out as I have many other readily available (better) options, but certainly not bad by any means.
