Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a La Fin du Monde Tulip Glass
A: A beautiful light copper color; almost the color of honey. It pours to a big, thick white head that slowly dies down leaving lots of lacing (which persisted to the very end!).
S: Whoa, that’s a lot of hops!!! A huge hop bouquet that is dominated sticky, resinous pine. There is also a lot of citrus in there (some oranges and grapefruit maybe). This beer smells awesome!
T: What can I say, ‘effing awesome!!! Hop Stoopid, as the name suggests, has a massive hop flavor with tons of sticky piney hops. The massive amounts of bittering hops work in perfect balance with a sweet caramel malt base. There must be a huge grain bill but the sweetness is not coating or overpowering and in the end, the beer finishes very clean with lingering flavors of malt and pine and grapefruit.
M: Full, rich, round, creamy, clean.
O: This is a fantastic beer and is one of my new favorites! While the first thing that comes to mind with Hop Stoopid is buckets of hops, I am left impressed with the perfect balance of flavors. Even my hop-o-phobic wife really liked this beer!!
