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 from Spencer. The pour is a deep ruby orangish cot with a nice bright white head and some spotty lace left on the glass. The aroma is humongous citrus. There is a lot of resin and a hoppy bitterness. There is a little more of a malt on the back end. The flavor is bitter up front. Lots of bitter hops and pine resin. The citrusy nature comes in about half way through and finishes beautifully. The malts also come in toward the end and really balance it out well. The mouth feel is a bit light, but it's nicely carbonated and really lets it hang around well. The aftertaste is really good. Lingeringly hoppy and bitter with a great citrusy follow up. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a pale copper with a foamy white head. Aroma is grapefruit and pine hops. Flavor is malts, pine, some grapefruit, and a resin finish. This is very bitter, in a good way. Quite good. Packs a punch, too.

Hops give me life. JuJu gives me hops. JuJu gives me life. Yep, Hop JuJu is a straightforward, hop-forward injection of pine, resin, and dank bitterness. Itís freakishly crisp. Itís aggressively bitter without being brutal. More, please.

jercraigs (8276) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
2015-03-14. Crisp dark orange body with a small creamy beige head. 3+ Aroma is really interesting, melange of citrus and green vegetation, melon notes. Flavour is similar, nice citrus, green vegetation. Light alcohol and tea like touches. 7+ Smooth average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Pretty nice. I want more citrus and less of the vegetation personally. Dangerously drinkable. Bottle shared by ontbeertaster.

Holy dogshit! This might be my favorite DIPA ever. Picked number one in a blind Dipa challenge. Dark orange in color, nice white head. Aroma is dank with some serious orange peel and orange. The taste is deep orange and tangerine with orange peel with some dank notes. This is so tasty itís ridiculous. Near perfect.

MacBoost (1440) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours Amber with a slight white head. Aromas of grapefruit and citrus, coupled with pine tar. Taste is bitter and semi sweet. Flavors of malty crushed Tylenol mixed in a grapefruit smoothie. Finish is sweet and bracingly bitter. Itís good, not mind blowing.
