I’m guessing this is a variation of Hop Stoopid but it’s distinct enough to stand out from the standard bearer.

It pours a light golden-straw color. I get all sorts of tropical fruit notes in the aroma—some papaya, guava and pineapple. Flavor is crisp and pleasing, with the tropical notes contrasted by a bump of bitterness on the road to flavor. Very pleasing and enjoyable. My only critique is that it’s thin bodied, almost too thin for the hop profile.

On tap at the source.
Listed as X Galaxy Stoopid. An experimental hop varietal.

A: Pours clear yellowish orange with a fine white head which leaves a trace of spotty lace.

N: Huge tropical fruit (passion and guava) along with floral notes.

T: Expecting lots of juicy fruit but instead get big malts up front. Let down here.

M: Semi-moderate body and carbonation. Sweetish malts throughout from start to finish.

O: Aroma is great. Just smell this one.
