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.

Boutip (5831) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
Bottle: Poured a deep yellow color ale with a nice foamy head. Aroma of juicy hops with nice citrusy notes and loads of tropical flavours. Taste is an incredible mix of juicy hops with loads of tropical flavours, some light residual sugar notes and some floral finish with almost no bitterness. Body is full with good carbonation. Wish I could have access to this beer on a regular basis.

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.
