Lagunitas Hop Stoopid

CIMG4123

I think I’ve had this beer once before, but it appears I never reviewed it. I picked this one up for the #IPADay. I’m a big fan of their regular IPA, so let’s see how this one does.

Stats:
Double India Pale Ale. 8.0% ABV. 102 IBUs. California.

Light copper in color. Starts with a nice head, but it subsides. Some decent lacing.

Beautiful nose. Heavy hops that bring a ton of orange citrus with a fresh pine scent.

Mouthfeel is almost perfect. Nice carbonation with a medium body. Maybe a little bit too drinkable.

Huge hop flavor. Lots of fresh pine and orange citrus. The pine flavor is a bit hard to explain. It’s closer to standing in a forest than the heavy pine resin flavor you often get, if that makes any sense. Lovely orange and grapefruit show up. It’s hoppy, but has just beautiful balance. It’s not all that bitter. It has some gorgeous fruit notes. Very nice, long finish.

What can you say, this is just a fantastic beer. It’s a balanced, extremely well-made DIPA. Get this beer! 92 points.
