COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bordering on the supernatural, Hop Juju is the perfect name for this beer as the magical hops cast their spell with intense, dank aromas of pine and citrus and big, aggressive, bitter flavors of pine, grapefruit and orange. Nicely balanced by a very sturdy malt backbone. and a hint of alcohol.

12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled 2/13/2014. Hazy golden orange with 2.5 fingers of off-white head, nice lacing. Aromas of grapefruit citrus, floral notes, caramel and sweet malt. Tastes of sweet malt, grapefruit citrus, some alcohol, faded hops. Medium body with a semi-dry and warm finish. Medium carbonation, juicy mouthfeel. Hops have definitely fallen apart but still tasty otherwise. Need to re-try this fresh.

Growler via trade. Pours a deep orange with medium off white head. Aroma of tropical and citrus fruits and dank. Pineapple and mango on the tropical side and orange and grapefruit on the citrus side. Taste follows the nose and I also got some pine in there and a nice amount of bitter. I got some alcohol, but not a ton. I felt this was well balanced and is now one of my favorite double IPAs (wish I could get this easier)!

Pours golden amber with off white head. Aroma is mainly sweet grapefruit. Flavor is rich in dank citrus hops. Strong bitterness, but not overpowering. A good caramel balance. Rich body and you get a warming alcohol punch in the finish.

Busick (379) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2014
An excellent Imperial IPA that I received in a trade as an extra!! Never had tried this brew before and was excited that I had the opportunity. A delicious IPA that was everything that an IPA should be, refreshing with a very hoppy finish.
