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.

Tons of pine and citrus aroma and flavor. Enjoying a 4-pack. I get punched in the nose with a piney aroma. The citrus (pineapple, mango) hops stand out with a nice balanced bitter finish.

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.

Look - Hazy when cold. More orange than most. White medium head. Lacing does not stick around. Smell - Bread. Dank hops. Faint citrus, mostly earthy. Taste - Bitter throughout. Bread in the beginning. Not as much citrus as expected. Feel - Bite on the tongue. Medium feel. Overall - West Coast in the Midwest. Cleveland! Fat Heads! Dank with subtle citrus.

12oz bottle thanks to Jeff. Pours out a crisp golden topped with a long lasting head. Nose is great pine resin citrus caramel sweetness. Taste is more of the pine citrus fruit hops caramel sweetness and a nice bitterness on the end. Wow this is great.

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

chucklemation (699) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2015
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.
