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.
