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.

A - clear amber, frothy one finger head fades to film.
S - tropical fruit salad, mango, floral hops.
T - on money, fruit salad still, pineapple, hops to the fore and well balanced. Little bittering hops makes easy drinking. Good malt backbone. Hint grapefruit / pine. Overall quite a moderate taste level.
M - medium weight, moderate carbonation. One stage from oily. No hint of ABV save a little warmth.
O - excellent effort, well balanced beer, not as in your face as I would have expected.
