Fresh bomber into a snifter.

Pours a darkish copper orange with a white head, retains as a thick half finger leaving good lace.

Big pineapple, grassy, resiny, onion hops in the scent. Quite potent, really not getting much malt at all.

Taste follows suit - lots of earthy, resiny, and veggie hops with some pineapple there. Quite bitter with just a slight malt presence. It's not my favorite hop plethora but it's potent and well done.

Bitter, oily mouthfeel with just a touch of alcohol.

Not my favorite Lagunitas hop bomb but definitely solid.

Nice golden orange pour with soft white finger of head which fades quickly. Minimal lacing.

Nose is pretty but subdued. Some floral components, but mostly hop, hop, and hop.

Flavor is big, but not really overpowerful. Little bit of grapefruit and other citrus initially, quickly squashed by massive dry, crisp hops. Little hint of flowers and honey at the end, but the finish is pure hoppy juice.

Mouth feel is quite thick due to all the hoppiness. Leaves a lingering tingle.

It is as described, hop stoopid. So much hop, but not crazy boozy and resiny like some DIPAs. Very enjoyable beer, especially if you like big dry hop.

This is an over-the-top beer. The name implies what you can expect from Hop Stoopid. What it lacks in appearance and aroma, it makes up for in obnoxious hoppy flavor. It's a fun beer for evenings where you don't want to spend any time thinking about what you're drinking. Sometimes digging for subtile flavors gets tiresome; and you just need instant gratification. At no point during the glass or bottle will it balance-out or settle down. It's going to hit you with a heavy dose of hops every sip, and its the beer you wish lackluster IPAs were daring enough to be.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours an orange amber color with a large orange tinted head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a good level of lace on the sides o f the glass.

Smell- The aroma is big on a bitter grapefruit smell. The grapefruit is very intense and largely overwhelms the other aromas. Some other smells do peek their way through the grapefruit hop though. Some light smells of a tropical fruit nature as well as some pine hop and caramel can be detected through the bitter grapefruit.

Taste – The taste begins with more sweetness and maltiness then would have been expected in the nose. It does however have the appropriate level of grapefruit hop taste right up front from what the nose depicted. It begins with a stronger tangerine sweet and malty flavor with some biscuit and caramel flavors as well. A rather potent sweeter grapefruit hop flavor is also present up front. The malty flavors maintain strength to the end of the taste and create a base for the hoppier flavors of the brew. As opposed to the malty flavors however the grapefruit hop flavor becomes more and more bitter in nature as some of the tangerine sweet and the caramel flavors fading from the taste. In the end, some lighter (in comparison to the grapefruit hop) pine and earthy flavors join the bitter grapefruit, with the three, ending up to produce a bitter and resinous hop flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is rather average to slightly below average. The thicker and chewier body are quite appropriate and beneficial for helping to produce a rather potently and bitter hopped brew with a in your face hop taste.

Overall – Bitter and moderately resinous with lots of hop flavor and malty tastes. A pretty decent imperial IPA, but a little too one dimensional in hop flavor for me. If you are looking for something with a over the head hop flavor, then this brew is good for you, but if looking for nice balance, then you may wish to look elsewhere.

Bottle purchased by my girlfriend from Wegmans as a surprise gift. This is apparently only brewed with hop oil and extract. Interesting, hope it still stands up.

Pours a golden orange, with a 2 inch head, and sticky significant lacing. Maybe it's due to my imagination, knowing its made with lots of hop oil, but this beer does look a bit oily.

Smells like a big fruit basket- grapefruit, orange, and pineapple all in the mix, very vibrant.

Similar taste, with the biggest emphasis on grapefruit. Lingering bitterness here. Some dank herbal hop flavors are present as well, lending an earthy quality to the beer. Very sticky.

The beer is medium bodied, and very sticky in the mouthfeel. Still crisp and drinkable, with no alcohol present.

Another great hoppy creation from Lagunitas.
