look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Pours a delightfully rich orange color with a solid 1-2 finger head of foam. A little bit lighter than I would have expected coming from a DIPA but very impressive none the less.

Smell: Very wonderful aroma, easily detectable citrus fruits with just a hint of spices. Delightful scent, the 8% ABV is hidden extremely well.

Taste: At 8% and 102 IBU's this DIPA is without a doubt one of the best I have had the pleasure of trying. Lagunitas' best brew in my opinion. The drink-ability is spectacular with a smooth fruity and crisp hoppy flavor. Very enjoyable, citrus taste with a minute spicy finish. The alcohol is hidden so nicely.

Mouth feel: Nicely carbonated with a wave of hoppyness, flavors morph into a sweet tangy taste. Mouth feel is great, very smooth very drinkable.

Overall: Definitely one of my favorite DIPA's that I have tried thus far. This beer is an eye-opener and it will leave you stunned and wanting more with each sip. I was quite surprised with Beer Advocate's rating of a 94, although 94 is an exceptional rating, I believe Hop Stoopid deserves at least a 95 or greater. From what I can tell this brew comes highly recommended and is simply fantastic.

At first glance, this doesn't look like anything out of the ordinary, however one would be mistaken. This pours a light amber orange in color and a nice frothy head to top it off.

Smells of piney and citrusy hops with a bready backbone.

This tastes better than a $5 bomber! One would never expect to be treated by this beautiful balance of citrus, sweet ale malt, and a hint of the Pacific Northwest ;).

Mouthfeel is like biting a magical pinecone filled with oranges and grapefruit.

Overall this is definitely a go to brew considering its perfect balance, ABV, and of course it's price tag!
