22oz bottle poured into a NB globe. No idea on the date :(

A: Poured beautifully...nice and smooth. Crisp and clear...lots of bubbles. Soft head with tight bubbles...about 2.5-3 fingers. Body looks rich and delicious.

S: One of the most intense grapefruit aromas I’ve experienced. I mean..it’s just sweet grapefruit. A tiny hint of sugar cookie. I’m struggling to pull much else from it. It’s nice though.

T: Starts a little sweet and then drops off into a long bitter spiral. Finish is aggressively bitter, but nothing that doesn’t keep you from going right back in for more. TBH, it seemed like I got a lot of the bitterness from the foam.

M: Very soft and plush. Not as abrasive as you might expect from something that has “102 IBU4U” featured on the label. Drinkability surprisingly high.

O: It’s fairly one-dimensional, but I think it may be designed that way. I really enjoyed this but I’d probably prefer to share the next bottle with a friend or two.

Review of draught Hop Stoopid, to complement my review of the bottled version.

This pours a golden-amber tan color with tremendous foam. Cascading foam, in fact. The aroma is a full-frontal assault of grassy hops followed by an aggressively hoppy taste profile. Crank this one to 11. Grassy green, some pine, and a surprisingly light body deliver full-on hop intensity. I found some tropical fruit notes come through, with pineapple and floral notes dominating, and a lingering finish that mixed pineapple, floral notes, and some piney resin. If this is what you’re looking for you will not be disappointed. Not for the faint of heart.

A: Great two finger foamy white head. Orangish hue and clear once the pour has settled.

S: Just a great smelling IPA here. Tropical. Just a little but of pine there. It's light but it's there.

T: A classic big IPA. Huge hops on the front and big whopping bitterness. That hoppy punch stays with you and as the beer warms the alcohol sneaks out.

M: Clean. A little bit of bubbly carbonation.

O: There are 102 IBUs here and you can taste them. If you want to taste a prime example of a West Coast style - I'd recommend grabbing a few of these and settling in for a nice weekend. This beer is absolutely fabulous with spicy food. Shredded pork tacos with lots of hot sauce.
