4.58/5  rDev +9.3%

A: Amber hue with a small creamy head.

S: Dank and earthy. Caramel, pine and grapefruit all come into play at the same time. A little lavender and freshly bloomed flowers round out the aggressive hops.

T: Grass and earth starts this beer off. Sweet grapefruit and a little strawberry begin to appear before the herbal components take hold. Floral with honey and caramel. Fresh melon begins to show towards the mid palate. a little soapy. a very clean finish.

M: Medium and creamy with a good long finish,.

O: Wow. Awesome stuff at a price that makes this even better. Bursting at the seems with flavor. try this one now. / 95

When I first tried Hop Stoopid I was not all that impressed. Good, but nothing to change your religion over. I've since come to appreciate it for what it brings to the table -- a tasty malt backbone without freaking out the diabetics among us, coupled with more hops than should be legal.

The orange color is redeemed by a fun head which slowly disintegrates while leaving behind a record of your gulps.

The smell is sort of misleading because it hints of syrupy malt. The taste more than makes up for it and the aftertaste delivers in spades. The oily hops stick to the tongue for that delightful long-lasting flavor which is one of the chief attractions of the Big Hops beers.

I'm a lightweight drinker and, as such, a bomber @ 8% is a little too much for everyday consumption. But when I can afford the brain cells, I have no qualms about destroying them with Hop Stoopid.
