Got this beer the same day I got the Imperial Red Ale and figured this would be pretty delicious for a hop-head with a name like "Hop Stoopid"!

A - Nice deep gold color that is crystal clear. Fluffy bright white head and lacing that tracks down the side of the beer.

S - Great hop aroma that makes you say "WOW". Mostly "C" hops shine through and maybe a touch of alcohol but basically all the raw hops that an IIPA should hold true.

T - Awesome showcase for the hops with all of the hop flavors from fruity to earthy wrapped up in one beautiful package. The beer has a very subtle malt flavor in the middle with a nice middle finish and a perfect bitterness. There is also a light acidity from the carbonation that helps make the hops "POP". It's a very solid IIPA as far as flavor.

M - Medium mouth-feel. The carbonation was strong trying to make up for the increase in body but it added an almost acidic hint which to my palate made the flavors seem like they were popping on your tongue. It finishes pretty crisp with the bitterness and carbonation queuing you up for another sip.

Overall, a delicious DIPA that drinks more like an IPA than a DIPA but with all the hops of the imperial. Awesome hoppy aroma, delicious flavor, great feel, appearance, and really get this beer going for gold. Though it isn't my #1 DIPA it is a very tasty brew that would never turn down. I would strongly recommend trying this if you love hops.
