Default Hop Stoopid! Anyone had it?

Hi yall,

I'm new here but not to brewing and other boards. Just wondering if any of you have had this delicious concoction... Its by Lagunitas and is by far one of my favorite IPA/IIPA's

Really, all i can say is that its so damn good and you will really want to keep drinking them if you can find em...

If anyone has had one ... I sure would like to make one... So any thoughts on that would be great.

I had one last night and I thought it would pretty good. A great hop aroma, and very drinkable for a beer saying it has 100+ IBUs.

Oh yeah, I'm cuckoo for Hop Stoopid, whenever I'm feeling spendy & want to buy 22 oz. bottles instead of (relatively less expensive) 6-packs. [It's not available in 6-packs...only in 22 oz. bottles]

It's awesome. Excellent aroma. Though sometimes strikes me as "sweet". Not overly--just 'is sweet tasting'. Still I could drink a ton of it...

I like the hop stoopid, too, and i'm not huge into hop beers. A friend told me that they use a hop extract for the aroma.

Yep, it's true. Just found this:

I saw that, too, and was stunned. It's still an amazingly good beer. I can only get the bombers in my neck of the woods, but they're well worth the 4.39 I pay. I'm addicted to it.

Shecky both you and I are in the same neck of the woods... I get mine from Glen Ro in Monroe as I live there. Its totally worth the $4.39 I am going to try the Maximus tonight with the Longshot DIPA.

Good god men, I pay $4.49 and I'm about 1000 miles closer to the brewery than you guys!

BTW, Howdy DeathBrewer! Please don't kill me.

Yep, this and Maximus are very good.

I wish I could say the same for the rest of their beers... they are a hit-and-miss. I have had some bottles that are good, others have been dumped.

My bomber was a twist-off

The taste was decent but the mouthfeel was a bit off. I like Ruination better.
