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.

Pours a clear orange with a dirty white head. Aroma is basically a hops assault. Flavor lacking a malty sweetness. Nice body and good carbonation. Overall solider, just not one I care for. Lagunitas makes so many other appealing beers.

The 102 IBUs are not over the top. Seeing the label makes you think you’re going to be getting something overly bitter, but the IBUs never overpower. Not much malt backbone that is a trademark of other Lagunitas. Can't say there is anything super memorable about, but good nonet.

Bottled from TJs in Royal Oak MI.
