Lagunitas Sonoma Farmhouse Hop Stoopid (650ml Bottle)
The beer with a guarantee built right into the name, this one is destined to blast through the flavors from the night before. Massively dry-hopped for your aromatic pleasure.
Pours a rich orange color with thick fluffy white head that fades quickly. Aroma is intense orange, mango, pineapple and a bit of lemongrass. Taste is resinous earthy hops with some grassiness, citrus, pineapple and some caramel malt in the background. FInishes crisp and clean with just a bit of bitterness to prevent it from being watery.
Imperial IPA, Double IPA or DIPA is a strong, often sweet, intensely hoppy version of the traditional India Pale Ale. Bitterness units range upward of 100 IBUs and alcohol begins at 7.5% but is more commonly in the 8.5-10% range. The flavour profile is intense all-round. Unlike barley wines, the balance is heavily towards the hops, with crystal and other malts providing support.
