4.26/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

(bottle code 15 5 2 - poured into a Chouffe tulip)

L: nearly-clear, orange amber liquid with specks of (hop?) sediment... tall, fluffy-spongy, yellowish foam, with lovely retention... beautiful head, but not as much stick to the lace as one would anticipate

S: red grapefruit and pineapple... very potent hop aromas, bit of underlying peppery spice... fragrant fruitiness, moderate thread of sweet, candied ginger... sugar cookie malt pushing out through the back

T: up front: spicy hops, mild-moderate acidity, a low-moderate herbal bitterness, finishing with long trail of caramel-kissed (C 60?) malt... inner grapefruit peel and crystal malt aftertaste, with a hint of dying grass... mellow background wash of raw alcohol in the finish

F: idiosyncratically medium-full body with a foamy, slightly gel-like viscosity... I prefer drier, snappier IPAs - but this is their thing... between the dextrins and resins, this languishes a bit, despite its smoothness

O: not experiencing '102' IBUs here - I know it must be a few months old - but this has to have more of a 'Enjoy-By' approach... still, the hop flavor stands up there with the best... close your eyes, bump this up 2-3% abv more, and you have yourself a West Coast barleywine - not that far off

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a light copper color with a tight white head that quickly fades to plentiful lacing.
The aroma is dank and piney with hints of citrus and juicy fruit gum.
Taste is big and bitter and dank with some juicy citrus backing it up and a long, bitter, piney and pithy finish.
Mouthfeel is medium and sticky.
Might tasty.

400th "tick" so I figured I'd use the word box. Thankfully this beer inspired me to want to review it anyway. This is a perfectly balanced IPA in my opinion, sweet and bitter are well balanced and the 8% is just right. Sub $5 for the bomber, just another reasonably priced offering from an excellent brewery.

Hoppy just the way I like it.. Piney and bitter taste is almost addicting

A solid beer but as the previous reviewer notes, a little too piney
and hoppy for me.

Really nice nose and mouthfeel, but this one is just too hoppy and bitter for my taste buds.

My favorite from the folks at Lagunitas. A nicer mix between their IPA and Maximus, of which I like and stock both, so that makes it pretty much the epicenter of the hopquake in my cooler. Now get it to me in a more convenient vessel (12oz bottle) and they won't keep it on the store shelf. Why? Cuz I said so. And when you flirt with becoming a full-blown beeralcoholic, you tend to know what it is that you speak of.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a light golden color with a tall white head that leaves plenty of lace.

Smells of sweet citrus - orange, mango - and floral hops.

Taste is sweet orange and mango with a dry middle that has biscuit notes. It finishes with floral and herbal hop bitterness. An very good II IPA.

I absolutely love Hop Stoopid. It was a Friday ritual for me for a while. It's available, inexpensive and very very hoppy. Hard to beat combination. Cheers!

This beer is wonderful, especially when fresh. I loved this beer (and pricepoint) so much that I named my two prized fancy rats "Hops" and "Stupid"...They are both deceased now but the Hop Stoopid lives on. Great beer for the price, "hippy man's colt 45"

This brew packs a punch! For $5 a bomber, can't beat it. Pours a clear golden body with a generous white head that diminishes to just the surface as you drink. Very nice lacing thru out. Smells are strong hops, citrus and either a pine or evergreen. Taste is actually quite strong. Very up front Hops and a slight burst of citrus. Nice bitter after taste with honts some what sweetness. Das Ist Good Yah?! Very delectable Lagunitas. Very well done.
Cheers

I'm used to an imperial IPA having some malt presence, maybe more than a standard IPA. This is all hops hops hops. The hoppiest beer I've had but there isn't much else that I can detect going on here.

L: Pours brilliant gold to amber under a dense persistent 3” clingy cream colored foam collar.
S: The fragrance is just above mid-range with grapefruit and grapefruit rind, spice and malt.
T: Big malt flavors give way to a grapefruit rind bitterness with citrus, herbs and spice, faint cardamom. The brewer places more emphasis on hop flavors and character than on hop bitterness.
F: Creamy medium body, very soft carbonation.
O: A deliscious mix of big hop flavors and big malt with a moderate hop bitterness.

Go figure. Finally got to try this one. I see this all over the place but it's always six months old or something. Anyway, had this on draft and was not not disappointed. Very citrus forward and what I detected was a touch of berries. A pretty good, smooth and easy drinking dipa. Wish I could find bottles fresh so I could drink more often.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bomber into a tulip glass

L: Pours a clear deep amber with a generous white head. The head falls rapidly and laces the glass.

S: Great hop bouquet (evergreens and citrus), malts, and fresh baked bread.

T/F: Bitter hops at the forefront with a nice mix of sweet-ish malts and bitter hops at the finish. Slightly warming from the alcohol. Moderately carbonated and resinous.

O: This is a delicious Imperial IPA, and one of my first true craft beer 'loves'. Every time I revisit Hop Stoopid it's like running into an old friend. I love what Lagunitas does with their brews and this is probably one of their best.

Love other Lagunitas offerings and so wanted to like this one, but not for me. I get the hops aroma up front, but something deeper doesn't smell right. Same with the taste. Decently bitter up front followed by a skank aftertaste. Not a fan

First IIPA out of a bomber and damn good. $5 for this is a steal. Lagunitas has it going on!

Has a nice malt backbone to balance some extreme hops! As it warms and the sweetness comes through, this beer becomes amazing.
