Pours a copper/orange with a white head that dissipates but laces.

Smells of citrus hops, notes of pine, and a honey-like sweetness underneath, slightly metallic note as well.

Pine and citrus hop character blend together with notes of pineapple and pear; there is a nice but not absurdly big bitter character in the middle and finish, and it is slightly creamy. Small amount of sweetness but no real malt profile comes through.

Medium body and nice carbonation. The body and dry character of the beer make it really nice to drink.

The hop flavor is quite enjoyable, and the beer is easy to drink given everything going on with it. It's a great beer, but a subtle metallic smell and taste really keep this one from going further...maybe I have an old bottle, couldn't find a date.

Poured from a bottle into a Tulip

A-Very crisp golden color with a 1-2 finger head that lingers well about 1 finger

S-The nose is amazing smells of very fresh citrus, grapefruit and sweet orange, with some more earthy hops and very deep pine.

T&M-The complexity of this beer is very good the bitter flavors meld together extremly well with a sweeter side. The grapefruit and pine flavors blend in with a rich malt sweetness that makes it very unique and very good. Medium body and very smooth with a classic bitter DIPA finish. Alchol is present enough to add to the flavor but not to be overbearing.

D-Easy to drink and I couldn't be ahppier about being able to get this...Oh wait yes I could I can get it as 3.99 a Bomber!

Hop Stoopid is amazing!

I think that this beer is wonderful, along the lines of a really good Imperial IPA. It has a head that lasts forever, which is pretty bad ass and leaves considerable lacing. Its color is golden.

Smells of floral citrus hops, and a sweetness come through.

Tastes like hops and sweet malts with a lemony taste.
SO GOOD!

I enjoy this as much as I do the Leviathan Imperial IPA.

Will buy again.
