LAGUNITAS BREWING COMPANY HOP STOOPID ALE

Lagunitas Brewing Company Hop Stoopid Ale. I’ll say at the outset that I liked this, but I am confused. The label states that they boosted the hops with hop extract; an anathema to craft brewers and drinkers. The reasoning behind this was to increase the hops flavour without clogging the brew system with vegetable matter.

It looks a bit thin, but the aroma is all hop resin. Unfortunately the flavour is all hop resin. This is not that bitter and at 102 IBU and 8% ABV I would expect a malty hit and there is none. I don’t know how they lifted the ABV without extra malt.

I would gladly drink this again, but it is poorly balanced. A bit disappointed considering the other Lagunitas beers.

 

7/10
