Default Hoppiest commercial brew you have ever drank?

I'm a hop head, and a friend of mine asked me if I ever thought I would find a beer that was "too hoppy".... I laughed and said no, but now I'm curious to go out on the hunt for one.... So what's the hoppiest you have tasted?

Mikkeller 1000 IBU's pale ale. There are two versions of this beer, one good and one bad IMHO. The bad one tasted like grassy bitter vegetables. It was so bitter that I could still taste it in my mouth an hour later.

As for the hoppiest brew, I would probably say Pliny the Elder, Hopacalypse, Aroma Coma

Lagunitas Wldo's Special Ale was perhaps one of the hoppiest beers that I have ever tasted. With every other degree it warmed it the hop profile seemed to change completely.

Stone Enjoy By is also a crazy hoppy beer.

Hoppy is a poor descriptor.


Most bitter would prolly be Hopsickle or Ruinten

Gushing hop flavor would be Duet or Nelson

I drink and make a lot of hoppy beers. I think Fat Heads' Headhunter has a ton of hops flavor/aroma and that was the first one that comes to mind, and then Hoppin' Frog's Triple IPA was also very hops dominant.

The latest Enjoy By is by far the most hoppy aroma-wise beer I've ever tasted...Much stronger than Aroma Coma, Blind Pig or Pliny....Regarding the taste I would have to agree on RuinTEN I think...

From what I've had, the Alchemist's Heady Topper has the most hop flavor, while Lagunitas' Hop Stoopid is the most bitter.
