A - Lighter than some DIPAs, but still nice yellow/orange body.

S - Not as strong of a hop smell as you would expect, but still nice and aromatic

T - Great finish - Not overpowering up front and clean sweet aftertaste

M - Nice creamy texture - Enough malt to give it some depth - Good carbonation, but I think that it could be a little bubblier.

O - Another solid beer from Lah-Goo-Knee-Tuss

A: Pours a nice translucent light amber with about one finger of pure white head. The foam settles quickly, leaving a lace shroud across the top of the beer. There is a decent amount of lacing on the glass as it drinks.

S: The nose is sweet malt with a solid pine backbone and a touch of grapefruit bitters. It's a lot more malty than I was expecting, but without any bottle date I can not tell how old it is. It might be kinda old. This beer sits on the shelves for quite awhile here in Buffalo.

T: I get a quick burst of malty sweetness right up front, but the hops come on a second later. There is a quick pinecone punch to even out the malt, and then it is all yummy citrus. Oranges, lemon, and a touch of grapefruit. The balance is nice through the middle, but the sweetness returns in the finish.

M: Medium bodied beer. Sweet to start, great hop and malt balance in the middle, and a sweet finish. The beer coats the palate but it doesn't linger for too long. I get some nice residuial citrus after the beer is completely gone. Solid.

O: This is a very good beer, especially for the price. $4.59 for a bomber of delicious DIPA is all good in my book. There are a lot of other DIPA/IIPAs that prefer more than this beer, but in a pinch to grab something quality I would pick this up again.

Pours a clear straw-to-amber excellence. Smells hops, citrus, floral, little funk. Tastes like clear, clean malt and hop juice, almost chewy, funky hops, with a clean, clear, big malt backbone to buoy it.

Excellent, excellent double IPA. Petaluma is straight up the street from the legendary Russian River brew pub and brewery, and frankly, a little overlooked because of their wide distribution. I would put Hop Stoopid up against Pliny the Elder on just about any day and say it's an even match. Pliny is more grape-fruity, and Hop Stoopid has a little more funk. Both are clear, citrusy, hop-nectars of the Gods. I don't think I could take one over the other though, the only thing I really see hurting the Hop Stooped is that it is more widely available.
