UPDATED: MAY 2, 2009 SDFOB-2008. On tap. Delicious DIPA. Hops still very predominate for a double. Sweetness is there but the bitter holds down the majority. Citrus grapefruit flavors. Stoopid is good like bad was in the 80’s and this beer is very STOOOOPID!!! Resampled from bottle (5/1/09) Nose was piney with floral hops. Poured a clear golden hue with a frothy off white head. Flavors were sweet pine, a little syrupy at times.

Had on tap. Excellent aroma. Citrus and pine are predominant in aroma. Mouthfeel is average. Flavor is similar to aroma with a touch of malt and some bitterness that lingers. Very good IPA.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Bottle: Pale orange in color with a thick white head and ridiculous amounts of lacing. Aroma of grass, pine, pineapple, orange and loads of sticky, stanky-ass hops. Medium bodied...again, some of the sticky-ness from the hops makes its presence felt on the tongue. Flavor consists of citrus, piney hops and some earthy notes. Very good stuff that I would love to have regular access to.

Bottle. I enjoyed this brew a lot. Poured a tan color with not a lot of head. Aroma is hops, pine and citrus. Flavor was similar with a bitter taste.

GMCC2181 (1550) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Bottle shared by robert at stateline and swolf3, thanks guys. Light red amber color, decent head. Aroma of biiter hops. Taste is the same, bitter hops. i wish it was a little more balanced but what do you expect with a name like "hop stoopid"! Texture and average carbonation. Overall a good beer/

Simply great !! On draught @ Toronado in SF and Taco Mac in Alpharetta! Wonderful, hazy color strong hoppy nose, sweet approach with great citus note balance. Grapefruit, blood orange, and resin, wonderful stuff. !

nuplastikk (4919) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2008
22oz bottle. Earthy, mega-hop aroma. Filtered, relatively transparent orange-tan color with a moderate, lacy head. Big bitter hop taste, an all out IBU assault, with a slight syrupy mouthfeel. A little alcohol warming in there as well. Hoppy, enjoyable, but hardly strikes any new ground. The price is right though, less than half the price of beers that are far less superior. Worth a try.

kramer (5329) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2008
22 oz bottle, via cloudskipper. Pours a clear dark gold, great foamy off-white head with good retention that left lots of sticky lacing. Lots of grapefruit and tangerine on the nose with a good bit of sweet crystal malt, light honey. The flavor is way too centered on the crystal malt for me. The hops are citrusy and moderately bitter, but also a little metallic on the finish. The finish is like sucking on pennies. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with just a slight resiny stickiness. Moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Overall, this one just didn’t hit it for me. The more I drank of it the more metallic it got.

rich fruity smell, citrus approaching strawberry. clear body, minimal head (on tap at mickey finns), interesting balance among the mlat, hops and alcohol, hops coming n third. had two pints and could have gone for a third but i wanted to drive home.

On draft at the Clark Street Ale House, Chicago. The pour was amber-red colored, good IPA-like head, ok retention and lacing. The aroma was piney and citrusey hops. The flavor followed suit, but the caramel and pineapples were a bit too distracting. The finish included an astringency, where Lagunitas is capable of doing better than this. Not bad, nothing great though within the style, could have been much bigger in hopping it stoopid!
