A- clear tangerine amber attractiveness. The cream colored cap of foam isnt phenomenal and it doesn't scream hoppiness, but its tightly bubbled surface wrinkles up some as it settles and the lacing is noteworthy.
S- Pungent citrus aroma of mandarin and grapefruit with pineapple and passion fruit and a soft cookie sweetness.
T- nice balance of sweet to bitter with a sort of herbal minty coconut cucumber coolness. This one isn't overwhelmingly hoppy and could probably pass for a plain old west side IPA. Grapefruit and orange peel, mango, lime, and pineapple. Malt sweetness is kinda just "there" and lacks any sort of complexity. Finishes with persistent bitterness but again, nothing too extreme.
MF- very juicy body with carbonation on the mild side. Not much resinous or alpha acid feel but sufficient dryness to ask for another sip.
D- its lack of super extremeness makes it a more drinkable brew and the 8% abv packs only a mild punch. The 102 ibu boasted on the label is balanced out by the sweetness and though it is indeed a tasty combination of hops, perhaps hop stoopid is a deceiving name.

The 22 ounce bomber just seemed to call out to me at Liquor Barn - how can you go wrong with "Hop Stoopid". Turns out I didn't. Enjoyed this with an Italian meal. The hop aroma with the mix or citrus and pine was almost overwhelming and the flavor profile didn't let me down. Although the label claims 102 IBU, the sweet malt backbone still comes through with a very nice balance between the hop and malt. This stood up quite well to spicy Italian food but I think it would be good with just about anything.
Overall this is just a very nice Imperial IPA that I will purchase again.
