Notes / Commercial Description:
Clean this mess up or else we'll all end up in jail...those test tubes and the scale...just get 'em all outta here..." He was referring to the complex super-critical-CO2 hop extraction equipment set up on the table in the lab across from the brewhouse. Hop extracts are for the BIG brewers, he thought - suitable only for crummy sub-standard and barely-passable industrial lagers, not the subtle and elegant craft beer made here. But wrong he was. The New Brewer does not eschew any possible inputs. In this case the mountain of extracts will replace the mountain of hop vegetative material in the kettle thus creating cleaner hop flavors and preventing the otherwise spinach-like mess of a kettle full of super-hopped wort from clogging up a pump or worse. The sensuous honey-like amber ooze was administered intravenously to the wort kettle and the sacrament was complete. Another kettle of Hop Stoopid is once again raised up and fermented on high.

[Original rating 2011-07-08] I love this beer. Deep gold color with a nice rocky head. Smells like a fresh cut grapefruit. Taste is huge citrusy hops but great balance. A top notch DIPA.

Piney fresh and crisp, hint of citrus, caramel. Pretty nice. Smooth and slightly buttery, Sticky in the glass but not in your mouth. Super drinkable.

I’ve been on the search for super juicy NEIPA’s lately and figured I’d circle back to a NW classic. High ibu without being overwhelming- just feels full of flavor rather than full of bitter. Clear amber golden goodness. Nice carbonation- a beer to drink on its own or with tasty food. Solid, available tasty nwipa.

Hop Stoopid | Lagunitas Brewing Company. Split with @nicholas2121 a few months back, this had a 3 finger thick head, solid lacing, and a clear medium gold body.

I smell plenty o' hops with a slightly funky malt complex.

Tastes like snappy, juicy hops with a tart, balancing malt note. Not really "bitter" IMO

Medium mouthfeel with mild carbonation.

I'll rate Hop Stoopid | Lagunitas Brewing Company with an overall 4.5

For 102 I.B.U. this is a deliciously, un-stoopidly, hopped ale. I especially enjoy the finish, one that doesn't leave you tasting bitter stank for the rest of the night (yes, bitter stank does exist). It has a rounded out, lush mouth feel that's medium bodied. Good fucking ale, man. Even better at 8% abv.

omg, what a pleasure to drink. How can anyone not love this beer? Hop Heads unite! Who cares if Rome falls? Warning: It's hoppy, if you like that kind of thing. I do. It's God's gift to hops, and I'm an atheist.
