Extreme bitter grapefruit aroma from an amber pour, flavors of orange pine and malt, finishes with orange and light malt.

Great smell. Like banana hops. Light head. Light taste, aromatic. Very drinkable. Fruity hip hop.

BeerViking (2643) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Keg at London Fields, amber and bright with a fast-settling head, pine and citrus nose, malty and bitter with hints of peach, resin, honey and something herbal and faintly peppery. Amazingly well balanced and scarily drinkable.

This is the same review I wrote for Maximus IPA as I find both of these beers very similar, but Hop Stoopid scores a bit higher as it is just a little bit better and slightly more intense: One of my most favourite beers in the world. IPAs don’t get much better than this. The strongly flavored biscuity malt supports the big citrusy and subtlety piney hops so perfectly without being too thick or cloying. This beer has it all.. It’s refreshing, satisfying and impressively sessionable for such high ABV. Genius creation.

Pours a hazy orange color with a one-finger head. Strong fruity hop aroma and smooth taste. Another great one from Lagunitas! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RobertDale (3663) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Sample at Strong Ale Festival 2014. Comes a mostly clear dark gold with a nice off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is citrus, tropical, pine, and malt. Very good.

A great, reasonably available, go to beer. Beautiful lacing and nice smooth aftertaste. We need more beers like this.

Kavu (2357) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2014
0,65l bottle @ Metro, Lahti. Pours cloudy golden with a medium head. Aroma is malts with plenty of fresh hops. Like standing at a hop farm. Flavor is malts, some fruits and plenty of hops, in flavor and bitterness. Great.

razzanof (27) - Leavenworth, Kansas, USA - NOV 13, 2014
From a bomber...pours a dark golden color with heavy lacing and a 1" head. Aroma is of citrus and pine. Taste is citrus with alcohol bursting through at end. This tends to be hit or miss, sometimes above average but more often than not an alcohol bomb... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (4060) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Keg at the drygate. Pours clear amber, merest white head. Big resin and pine aromas, caramel in the background. Taste us bitter, but decent malt balance. Slightly prickly carbonation makes it easy drinking for the strength. Nice.

Great pine, citrus aroma. Brilliant golden color with dense white foam. Great body and mouthfeel very sessionable at 8% just a really tasty beer.
