I cant believe i havent yet reviewed this. Pours a deep golden, with many small bubbles rising up to the white foamy head of two fingers-thick, with the head slowly settling, lacing cakes nicely along the sides of my pint glass.
Smells of fresh hops, citrus and pine. Very fresh.
The taste follows the scent, with a fresh citrus/ lemony sensation of hops that fill my mouth, in a cool pine forest kind of way. Zesty and bitter, even bready; the malt lays in the background here because these hops are just so bitter. With that said, how does it remain so balanced and drinkable where my palate stays intact?
This ends pretty crisp/wet, and slightly sticky.
I found this familiar craft beer at my local Tom Thumb. Good move by them, as this is a phenomenal value at under 5 bucks. This beer reminds me of the iconic Russian River brew of the exact same style; that's saying alot given Ive only tried Pliny once and at least a year ago. Hop Stoopid is one of the best DIPAs you can buy for your dollar. Safe to say now in my top 5 of the style. Im not sure why it took the convenience of a local chain grocery for me to retry it. If you're a hophead, you'll find this incredibly drinkable.
