Had this beer from bottle poured into a wiley glass.
Mild head, nice clear amber from this filtered offering.
Smell was mild hops and lots of sweetness.
Tasted sweetness at first followed by solid bitterness on sides of tongue.
Not overly complex.
Solid but not exceptional double IPA.

It pours a gorgeous golden color with a fluffy white head. The smell shows off the entire range of hop characteristics: I get grapefruit, other citrus flavors, pine, floral, and herbal notes. Also present is a sweet malt smell. Predictably, Hop Stoopid gives a huge hop bomb on the way down, replete with citrus flavors but also quite earthy, with a malt finish that balances out the taste somewhat. It's as drinkable as the best DIPAs I've had and a stellar example of the style. I've had Heady Topper and this compares well with it, while being cheap and easy to find.
