Lagunitas Hop Stoopid


I love the name of this beer.  Amy on the other hand just plain loved the beer in general. And no, she didn’t really drink it out of the bottle.  (at least that’s what she told me to say)

Hop Stoopid is a big ole west coast beer, which despite what I thought is not in fact an IPA.  It’s an Imperial IPA.  Which no doubt is a result of when the emperor overthrew the land of IPA and claimed this beer for his own.  But enough of the history lesson.

Hop Stoopid is certainly hoppy, but I wouldn’t say stoopid hoppy.  Mainly citrusy and sweet.    It checks in at 100 or so IBUs.  That’s a measure of bitterness for those who don’t know.  Of course if you don’t know that, you probably aren’t drinking Hop Stoopid.  Especially since the label’s weird image of a falling down barn does little to entice an impulse buy.

A good beer, but not the best of what they have to offer.  I like these guys though – funny and creative.  Plus clearly Amy enjoyed it.  So just try it stoopid.

  1. I’m a big fan of Lagunitas, but like you said…they make better beer than Hop Stoopid. My favorite used to be the Sirius Cream Ale, but I believe that they recently stopped producing it. Shame.

  2. It is appropriate time to make a few plans for the long
    run and it is time to be happy. I have learn this put up and if I
    may just I wish to recommend you few fascinating issues or suggestions.
