look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Pours a clear copper. Nearly orange. Fluffy white head (about a finger) with moderate retention. Healthy lacing. Lots of carbonation throughout

Smells surprisingly light and fruity. Usual IPA/DIPA players like citrus and juicy grapefruit. Then some unexpected aromas like ripe berries - strawberries and raspberries - and melon. Some tropical scents too. Mango and pineapple. Some sweet malts and grain

Taste follows the nose initially. Big juicy fruit flavors. The berries shine through on a tart opening note. This gives way to grapefruit and lemon with some pineapple and subtle melon. There are lots of sweet toasty malts. The finish is slightly piney with moderate bitterness and some peppery spice

Feels very clean. Medium bodied. Smooth

Not surprised how much I like this. Very well-balanced which is Lagunitas' forte. Lots of unexpected flavors. Complex for the style. All-around excellent

22 oz. Bottle with no freshness date.

A- Solid, two finger, light beige, fluffy head. Transparent light amber with lots of active, visible streams of carbonation. Great head retention all the way to the bottom of the glass, with lots of pretty lacing.

S- Sweet malts, brown caramelized sugar on fresh fruit. I'm getting a sweet, candied, floral scent that is delicious. I'm not sure if it is all coming from the hops or if the malt and yeast are getting in the mix too. Smells like a citrus and berry marmalade on a toasted, whole grain muffin.

T- Start with malt up front which is quickly accompanied by a slightly bitter and astringent zing of hops and alcohol. Finishes citrusy and bitter with a fruity and piney aftertaste and retro-olfaction.

M- Slight slick and resinous. Mid body with lots of carbonation.

O- A very tasty, satisfying, and complex double IPA. I finally understand all the positive talk surrounding this beer. And at 5 bucks a bottle, it's a steal compared to other bombers.

Clear copper, enormo white bubbly head,solid lacing.

Aroma of sweet malt and dank hops underneath.

Flavor the same with a higher malt dominance: not my favorite. Sure it is hoppy, but the sweetness overtakes the bitterness in a candy coated manner.

Mouthfeel is medium, not as dry in the finish as it could be.

Okay,Lagunitas Sucks spoiled me, and set the bar pretty high,but Hop Stoopid just doesn't reach that level of excellence nor does it have that hop forward blast to the nostrils and palate.
Not bad overall,but not one that I would revisit like Sucks (if they ever release it again).
