Lagunitas Hop Stoopid Ale

This is a tasty one.  Very, very hoppy, as you’d expect from something called Hop Stoopid, but the hops bitterness is nicely balanced by the malt flavor.  There was grapefruit, lemon peel, black pepper, caramel and pine in both the aroma and the flavor, and the alcohol balanced everything nicely. The head was puffy at first but dissipated quickly.   Lagunitas makes some nice beers, and this is at the top of the list, 8/10.

    I just tried this the other day and really enjoyed it. At $4.79, it’s certainly a bargain (at least as far as bombers go).

    I also bought their Capuccino Stout, which I’m eager to try.

    The Cappucino Stout is pretty damned good too
