This beer pours a hazy orange color. The head is a quarter inch in height, and recedes into a thin cap of lacing. The aroma is of grapefruit, orange, and pine resin. The taste is like the aroma...grapefruit, orange, and pine. I'm having a hard time detecting the 102 IBU (which should be hard to detect). I mean there is a nice bitterness to this beer, but it is not sharp the way very high IBU beers usually are. The mouthfeel is full bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, this is a good beer, but there a so many other DIPAs out there that taste just like it for it to stand out. I could drink it again though.

A&S - Pours a transparent orange with two fingers of white frothy head. Pungent aromas of pineapple and orange, some piney hops, an overall big, juicy, and fresh aroma, nothing compared to Pliny, but its overall profile is there.

T&M - Hits bittner and sweet bursting with an alcohol sweetness and a slight graininess from the caramel malt. As I continued to drink this beer I found it going down smoother. It started to hit sweet and frothy, and as the carbonation grew bigger, a piney hop flavor arose with a wonderful bitter finish that begged you for another sip. Very attractive medium body, the booze is hardly there, until you get through the bottle.

O - An amazing beer, an amazing IPA, an amazing bargain. I thought Lagunitas IPA was good, this stuff blows it out of the water. Lagunitas is known for bringing great quality beers at affordable prices, however I think we all need to realize they are more than a BA's go to bargain brewery. Lagunitas is a brewery on the verge of competing with world-class brews, and I can't wait to try more! 4 across the board for this one! Stay thirsty my friends!

Hop Stoopid
Lagunitas Brewing Company
Style: American Double / Imperial IPA
ABV: 8.00 %

LOOK: Golden orange color with a white soapy head. Plenty of rings of lace down the glass, and it looks like a solid pale ale.

SMELL: Citrus, grapefruit rind, honey, caramel and pine notes all comprise a very nice well rounded aroma of bitter and sweet.

TASTE: Upfront pine and grapefruit notes, sweet honey like pale malts used in large amounts no doubt. Citrus oil, orange, grapefruit, and sappy pine are all attributed to a stoopid amount of hops. There is a mild and even complimentary alcohol presence, but the big flavors mask the alcohol very well.

FEEL: Medium to full bodied, well carbonated, slick on the palate and hop oils just do not want to let go.

OVERALL: A great beer from Lagunitas, with all the hop character that die hard hop heads can't deny, but a solid enough balance that it could appeal to a broader spectrum of beer drinkers. Also, affordably priced, so it is a good fridge staple.
