I poured this bomber into my snifter at cellar temperature.

Hop Stoopid is a glowing golden orange color with stunning clarity. It's head is white and about two fingers deep. Looks "IPA-ish."

The aroma has a strong, floral citrus aspect and TONS of hops. There's also a bit of honey and a little pine.

A sip of this DIPA packs a mouth-wateringly delicious overdose of herbal hops, with a tinge of honey sweetness. The aftertaste has sweet and bitter orange and pine bitterness, but nothing like what I expected from the 102 IBUs. It's really not THAT bitter. The alcohol is VERY well hidden, by the way.

It's got a rich body with really "comfy" carbonation.

Ever since I first had Hop Stoopid, I knew that it would set my standard for DIPAs. It has "all the basics" of the style and begs me to take drink after drink, let me tell ya. This beer was brewed with one purpose... one which it fulfills exceptionally well: to deliver hops unto beer drinkers everywhere.

I was turned on to this California beer by a friend of mine. I wasn't sure what to expect other than a "hoppy" beer. I was extremely satisfied with the color, aroma, mouthfeel and taste. I love a good hoppy beer. Hop stoopid combines a fine selection of hops with a delicate but unpretentious balance of malt and depth that makes it easy to drink. When it's gone... You'll wish the 20+ oz bottle was bigger.

Hop stoopid pours a darkish golden color, with a nice large lasting head. Their is a strong floral aroma. The taste has a slight hoppy flavor, a pronounced malty backbone, and a strong bitterness. Good full flavor, but their is a weak hoppy taste, but a strong bitterness. Overall a good IPA, strange flavors, but enjoyable.
