Notes / Commercial Description:
Clean this mess up or else we'll all end up in jail...those test tubes and the scale...just get 'em all outta here..." He was referring to the complex super-critical-CO2 hop extraction equipment set up on the table in the lab across from the brewhouse. Hop extracts are for the BIG brewers, he thought - suitable only for crummy sub-standard and barely-passable industrial lagers, not the subtle and elegant craft beer made here. But wrong he was. The New Brewer does not eschew any possible inputs. In this case the mountain of extracts will replace the mountain of hop vegetative material in the kettle thus creating cleaner hop flavors and preventing the otherwise spinach-like mess of a kettle full of super-hopped wort from clogging up a pump or worse. The sensuous honey-like amber ooze was administered intravenously to the wort kettle and the sacrament was complete. Another kettle of Hop Stoopid is once again raised up and fermented on high.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

from notes:
pours a light orange filtered clear, looks light bodied. a very slightly off-white foamy sudsy head that will stick to the sides of the glass.
smells of pineapple. very distinctly of pineapple, sweet fresh fruits of citrus and pine aroma is secondary.
tastes well balanced, not as hoppy as i thought. perhaps not a fresh bottle, or maybe just not as hoppy as the name advertises. more of a pale ale than an IPA. citrus and caramel flavors.
mouthfeel is good. not a low temp for not very high carbonation.
overall a solid very drinkable beer. which there was a brewed on or a drink by date to gage whether or not i'm sampling a misleading bottle. not living up to its Hop Stoopid name.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Poured cold from a 22 oz. bottle into a tapered pilsner glass. Don't see a date.

A: Copper body with a thin white head. Some good lacing and persistent head around the outside of the glass.

S: Strong floral and citrus aroma with a little bit of clover honey down below.

T: Very pronounced hop flavor without being aggressively bitter.

M: Nice carbonation and tingle without being too tart or too dry. Definitely a strong point of the beer.

O: Great example of the style. If you're looking for hops you can't go wrong here.

Poured into a wine glass, dark golden pour, quickly fading inch head with variety of bubble sizes. Scent of pine, fresh grapefruit and some hint of funkiness. Taste follows the nose, strong grapefruit, pine, and funk. Excellent hoppy brew, almost no malt in sight. Somewhat light mouthfeel which I feel suits this very hop heavy style. Fantastic, and very refreshing, would drink again.
