    At the beer store in the iPa/dipa sections noticing all the play on words with hop in the name. What are some of your favorites? I found these amusing.

    Hoptimus Prime, which unfortunately is a shell of its former self.

    Smooth Hoperator is another favorite.

    Hopsecutioner, Hopslam, and Hoptimus Prime are awesome, as already mentioned. I also like the name Hoppyum.

    Have you tried it since Ruckus moved their contract to the Cooperstown Brewing Co., (now owned by Butternuts)?

    I haven't, but I'm seeing the new bottles pop up on the shelves recently.

    Is there a joke/pun to hopslam that I'm not catching?

    I'll nominate Knee Deep Hoptologist. Hopslam is not a clever name-I'm slightly confused by all the love.

    Hop Stoopid comes to mind but for a Central Virginia(local) name, Pocahoptas. Oops, should have read the post above but oh well.

    This was going to be my answer also. My guy and I recently hosted a beer tasting that featured hops. Hoppy APA, IPA, IIPA, Black IPA, etc, and we also had this particular brew. We even titled the event "Pursuit of Hoppiness."

    By the end of the night, all of us were saying "me so hoppy!" in a Chinese accent. We enjoyed a lot of hops that night....

    JK, it sounds like Hoptimus Prime has been brewed at multiple locations of late:
    “Ruckus Brewing Now Contract Brewing @ Butternuts (Hoptimus Prime & Hedonism)
    24 JANUARY 2013

    I know this isn’t earth shattering news, but people ask me all the time..so here’s a peek at the new keg label for Hoptimus Prime as it is being contract brewed now @ Butternuts Brewing in NY. This beer was formerly brewed at Lion Brewery & Cooperstown as well. Should be interesting to see how they do with the former Neuweiler Brewery project so stay tuned.”


    P.S. The fact that it is no longer being brewed at Lion Brewery has to be a postive thing!
