A wonderful value purchase. A bomber of Hop Stoopid for $4.59 at my local Giant Eagle Market District. My girlfriend and I have clean snifters in our hands and await the pour.

Yellow-orange off the pour. Slightly hop-hazed. Tried to give it some air on the pour, but I barely got a quarter of an inch. Just a white ring and scummy foam film. 3.5

Tropical fruits, citrus, and resinous pine in that incredible nose. Pineapple, papaya, unripe mango, oak wood, tree sap, and pink grapefruit. If that ain't some kinda incredible combo... well, you tell me! Malts = toasted; hops = magical. 4.5

Yessir, that's one bitter beer face Imma wearin', and that's a good thing. The oily, resin hops in the aroma have transformed into something very leafy and green and clean. Oranges bump up on the chart and make the Top 5 with grapefruit, papaya, and herbal hops taking the top three spots. Mango drops out of sight, while a stunning entry at #4 is freshly mowed lawn. Okay, in all seriousness, this beer is off-the-hook humulus. Pretty dry for the style, but finishes fruit sweet. All 102 IBUs come at you with vim and vigor, covering your mouth with a choloroform-soaked rag just as your ready to compliment the toasted caramel malts and subtle alcohol. Yep, this beer is viscious. Tastes a lot like Sixpoint Resin, if Resin had a tropical fruit bouquet and more bitterness. 4.5

Medium body, and a sudsy-to-medium carbonation. Alcohol is slowly creeping in. It made me forget that I already had a cigarette lit. 4.0

What can I say now? I love buying this for cheap, I love reading the surrealist blurb about Mikey on the side of the bottle, I'm happy with the strange image of the unsturdy-looking cabin on the label, the hop nose rocks, the taste is a bitter rejoicing, the feel is much above-par... I mean, this beer is 'Stoopid' good. 4.5

22 0z Bottle with no date.

A- A vigorous pour down the center produced a one inch foamy head that dissapeared quickly. Lots of large bubbles. Clear deep gold color.

S- Hops. What else did I expect? Pine and citrus is all I'm getting.

T- This is where it shines. There is mild malty sweetness at the start as the hoppiness blooms leading to a slightly bitter finish. Not very complex but well balanced.

M- Medium to light body with noticeable carbonation.

O- A great adventure in hops. Easy to drink for something with 8% ABV.

Appearance is a crystal-clear amber with a thick white head with good retention. The smell is oustanding - huge mango and grapefruit scents The taste is as hopped up as the smell suggests. Tart, juicy, bitter grapefruit flavors dominate from start to finish. Good mouthfeel, but not great. Perfect for a hop lover like me.
