Sonoma Farmhouse Hop Stoopid

I don't know much about the Sonoma Farmhouse brand that Lagunitas created a few years ago, but their motto is "A traditionally brewed non-traditional all-malt ale." I know they've brewed a couple different styles, and I'm assuming this is their hop heavy version. It's a beautifully orange/ambered colored beer, not a lot of head, at least in my pour. The aroma is a pleasant sweet malt with just a hint of hops. The taste is similar to the aroma except with a hint of hops on the front end. But most of the flavor is a mellow malt that's great for sitting back and relaxing with.
