4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A solid body, fresh hop smelling and tasting IPA. I have finished my 5th six pack and am looking for more. If you love hops, try this beer.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Advent beer #13 - 12oz bottle (8% ABV per label) - look through this beer and everything is like a Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet movie. Nose is resin and citrus. Quite bitter without the bitter face. Dry finish. Kind of flat. My favorite so far from the Advent Calendar.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear light copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Mike! Copper penny body with nice clarity & a thin bubbled, beige layer of cream on top. Aroma is pretty citric with a mild white pepper-y, herbal leafy essence underneath. Grapefruit & light lemon. Taste has some pungent, juicy grapefruit notes with some pine, hop oil, mild dankness & bitter leaves. Some malty sweetness underneath, but balanced well with a stingy bitterness that leads to a seemingly dry finish.

a nice brew - i was hesitant to purchase, due to the high price tag and at $16.99 for the sixer i probably won’t buy another. but it opens up with a strong hops presence and a bit of alcohol heat. this is definitely high-octane with hops bitterness (piney and green) and a nice pale malt background. smooth and well-executed, and an enjoyable beverage with a cute "michigan" angle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Doesn’t look any better than an average lager, but HooDoo does pack a pretty decent hop punch. Nicely executed, but a little too one-dimensional for me. Serving: 12oz bottle

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Dutch’s. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice resiny, mild citrus and earthy hop character, some toasted malt, very light caramel. The bottle says 8% while this lists 9%, either way it is easy to drink and I don’t get much alcohol. I sometimes overlook these, but many are pretty tasty solid beers.

A bonus from a recent trade. Pours a dark orange color with a white head. Aroma is stinky fresh hop and a bit of citrus. Flavor is medium bodied and much like the aroma. Finish is a touch pine bitter now. Decent drink with good balance and nice hops.
