4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Ledgers in Berkeley, CA. I love Lagunitas brews, so it was no surprise that this was a quality brew. The hops were very citrusy and fresh, and the palate was nicely controlled for a DIPA. Stoopid is as stoopid does, but not in this case. Excellent beer!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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/

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
