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.

Panzuriel (1415) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2015
12 oz bottle fun four pack bought at giant eagle Westerville. Slightly hazy light copper beer with a fine head of white tiny bubbles. Nose is mostly pine with just a bit of musty earthy scent. Taste is sharp pine hops and a good malt. Body is fluid and just a bit lively.

GnarlyGnome (773) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Draft: This is a great example of big...delicious IPAs, with that in mind, I get tired of the same big IPAs sometimes. Yes, this is really good, and is exactly what they say itís going to be...big malty backbone with a big bitter citrus hop profile, but thatís just what it is.

Erzengel (5316) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 3, 2015
Many thanks to Rian for sharing. floral nose. The beer starts sweetish and fresh. Smooth nice body, not too intense hop flavour. Fresh and round with a nice bitter-sweet aftertaste. It could be a bit more floral or hop intense.

Lukaduke (2660) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Pours a deep golden orange color with two fingers of eggshell foam. Nice layers of soft honey malts, tropical fruit and citrus. Juicy hop smacking fruit on the front with toasted grain and round sweetness to soften the booze and bitterness on the finish. Tasty !

APPEARANCE - Sweet golden coppery color. White foamy head with limited staying power. NOSE - tropical fruit, but not citrusy. Really enjoyable prelude to the first sip. FLAVOR - tastes much less fruity than it smells. Tastes much more resinous (or sticky as my buddy likes to say) than it smells. NOTES - Very interesting & complex flavor. I can see why it?s a winner.

Bottle. Funky earthy grapefruit peel and milky malt aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet earthy orange malt and moderately bitter pine, lemon/lime peel flavor. Nice balance. Very nice.

hopbrad (6) - - MAY 7, 2015 does not count
great hop flavor, but the alcohol bite overpowered too much. i think if they dropped it to a 7.5-8% brew, it would be a top notch IIPA.
