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.

Bottle shared by luttonm, thank you Matt! Pours amber, a bit unclear, with a little off-white foam. Aroma of hops juice, lots of tropical fruits and malt, alcohol. Flavour is balanced, medium malt profile with a good and persistent bitter end, alcohol. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not my favourite style, but nice.

suprchunk (2845) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2016
Clear orange pour. Sizable eggshell colored head. Little lacing. Big danky, sweaty grapefruit hop aroma. Sweet roasted corn and sweaty armpits. But in good ways.

ryecatcher (1237) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours a honey-gold, medium whitish head with decent retention and lace. Nose is dank like my cat pissed in a basement full of guava and passion fruit, some pine and cakey malts playing patty-cake in the background. Mouth is medium-full, relatively dry and sticky, lots of tropical fruit, citrus, pine, toast. Very nice.

Macegan75 (800) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Bottle from Matt McCue. Thanks, bro. Pours golden orange with beautiful foam that lingers throughout. Aroma is pine, bergamont, cumquat, and crystal malt. Taste is similar, with a great mouth feel and a lime rind mild bitter finish. This beer is even better in the bottle. Great stuff!

NikkTwist (2399) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Draft at Moriartys. Mostly clear dark gold pour with an off-white foamy top. Splashes of lace. Complex mix of hops backed with medium caramel malts. Tangerine peels. Raw sugar cane. Apricot pits. Blood oranges. Woody resins. Solid syrupy brew. Sweetish up front, smooth finish, lingering tannin dryness.
