Lagunitas Hop Stoopid

102 IBU 4U. Cold. Wet. Stoopid. The beer with the guarantee built right into the name. Petaluma, Calif & Chicago, ILL. Massively dry-hopped for your aromatic pleasure. Say: Lah-Goo-Knee-Tuss. Beer speaks. People mumble. How'za bout trying one of our other beers! Maybe a - homicidally hoppy - whatever. Clean up this mess or else we'll all end up in jail - those test tubes and the scale - just get 'em all outta here. He was referring to the complex super-critical-CO2 hop extraction equipment set up on the table in the lab across from the brewhouse. Hop extracts are for the big brewers, he thought - suitable only for crummy sub-standard and barely-passable industrial lagers, not the subtle and elegant 21st century beer made here. But wrong he was. The new brewer does not eschew any possible inputs. In this case the extract will replace the mountains of hop vegetative material in the kettle thus creating cleaner hop flavors and preventing the otherwise spinach-like mess of a kettle full of super-hopped wort from clogging up a pump or worse. The sensuous honey-like amber ooze was administered intravenously to the wort kettle and the sacrament was complete. Another kettle of Hop Stoopid is once again raised up and fermented on high.
