Hop Stoopid ~ Lagunitas

Appearance: clear coppers and oranges under a gentle pithy head. Head fades with bubbles, settling into a solid film with thick edges.

Nose: orange honey up front with a thick sweetness followed by a dryness of the honeycomb. Grapefruit and green grass in the back, dew-dropped and zesty. Inner pith of citrus fruit. Biscuit and melba in the very back – rather nondescript crunchiness, faint.

Palate: creamy and frothy. Sweet oranges and honey and citrus along the sides. Dry in the middle with pith and outer skin, white and pink grapefruit especially. The pink grapefruit adds more sweetness than zest which lingers.

Final Thoughts: overall quite tasty. Big bold hops that get right to the point from the first quaff to the last. I’d gladly quaff bold IPA on a regular basis.
