4.03/5  rDev -4%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint glass out of a 22oz bomber.

Appearance is honestly not very impressive. Crystal clear medium copper with basically no head at all. Only a tiny ring around the edge of the glass lets you know it is carbonated.

Aroma is out of this world. Tons and tons of hops. Lots of passionfruit/tropical citrus character with a little bit of mild grain underneath.

Flavor is, not surprisingly, nearly all hops. Huge tropical fruit character really carries this beer. A little bready malt underneath but it is very faint. Hops are king. Bitterness is not as high as I was expecting but is pleasantly assertive. The finish is slightly sticky but crisp.

Overall, not my favorite IIPA but in the top 5. For the price it really can't be beat. I would have liked to see a little more malt balance and complexity but I have a feeling this will become a regular in my fridge.

What can I say about this? Plenty. Generous price so definitely worth trying even if you are still hesitant. The name isn't deceiving at all once you open it you can smell the aroma of different hops. Poured into a tulip glass and has a great amber hue giving it a great presentation. After my first sip it became one of my favorites; it is bitter, but not overpowering. I prefer this one over their standard IPA. Sure there are other better selections out there, but you will never find such a great beer at this price.

if Hop Stoopid didn't exist, man would have had to create him... or something like that. This beer is a winner, and not as pricey as the other big bottles on the shelf. Bitter was never so sweet. Pair with spicy food of choice and wash those scoville units to hell.

Great color and decent head. Very enjoyable beer overall. I can't quite put my finger on what it"s missing but there is something small holding it back from being near the top for me. It's definitely a beer I will recommend and buy in the future though.

Great beer. Great taste. Goes down as one of the tops... for now.
This wasn't on my "to-drink" list, but I made an exception. I'm glad I did.

A- Looks great, but I'll admit, I drank it right out of the bottle.
S-scent was of a perfect for a solid drinkable beer. Not over powering to the point that you felt like you had to brace yourself for a kick in the mouth, but not weak.
T- taste, my favorite part. It was good, very good. Easy and smooth. A great hop taste and even flavor.

O- this is a good solid beer. You should definitely check it out.
