Lagunitas Hop Stoopid ....

Time for some (hopefully) hoppy goodness: Hop Stoopid from Lagunitas Brewing Company.  8% ABV is listed on the 1 pint, 6 ounce bottle, as well as 106 IBUs.

This beer poured with a thin, off white head.  Beer color is a golden amber.  The aroma is very nice, with grapefruit and some more exotic citrus.  Other fruits.  There seems to be a  little underlying sweetness, like honey.  Makes my mouth water a little.  The citrus is also in the taste, with the bitterness advancing to some pine as well.  But not overly bitter.  Some nice malt balances it out.  There is also some spice.  A little carbonation for mouth feel.  Leaves you with a mild sour/bitter note for the aftertaste.  This one really hits the spot, especially after last night's very mild sampling.
