COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bursting with 3.5lbs / BBL of pungent American hops, Julius is loaded with notes of passionfruit, mango, and citrus. A soft, pillowy mouthfeel and rounded bitterness makes Julius very, very easy to drink. You’ve been warned.

16oz can to snifter. Hazy orange with a big slightly off white head. So much citrus, mango, pineapple, juiciness. A touch of bitter cattiness on the finish, which my palate is super sensitive to. So smooth on the palate. May I please have this all summer?

Fresh Can. Pours a dark muddy orange color with a modest white head. Opaque; to say it is hazy is an extreme understatement. The aroma is wonderful. Citrus and tropical fruit, orange, mango, passionfruit. Taste is similar with loads of flavor hops up front followed my a moderate bitterness. Medium bodied; average carbonation; finishes lightly bitter.

Can in trade. Pours a cloudy orange. Aroma is fruity, citrus, some dank notes. Taste is light, dry, fruity, then bitterness takes over. Not overpowering, but it does linger. Good beer.

Homer321 (2747) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Can shared by Troy. Nose is huge orange and lightly dank. Murky orange pour like OJ. Taste us more or less OJ with a light acidity to it. Bitterness and alcohol linger on second sip. Pretty quenchable.

Can. Canned about 9 days ago, but I also had this same batch a week ago (2-3 days old). Nice looking pour, albeit super hazy and cloudy—but thats how i know its good. I like the unfiltered look, it makes me feel more confident I will enjoy a certain ipa, but i understand those who want to see a clean appearance. Nose is juicy citrus, quite dry, light mango and guava with a big splash of grapefruit. Flavor is similar..very green at this point still. Hard to tell if it is falling off or still too green. Kinda has that vegetal green flavor thing going on that is difficult to decipher. Definitely better a week ago, but still very good now. Glad I got to try this. Now to make it to the brewery later this summer. Everything is better at the source.

dogfishho (669) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Pours a cloudy golden orange color with a very large white head. The aroma is strongly dominated by oranges with other tropical fruits playing background music. On the palate, it is very sweet up front with a pretty modest bitter note to clean things up on the back. Dangerously drinkable.

ElManana (1086) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2015
Can from trade. So eager to try this. Pours very orange with a big head. Exotic hops, oranges, citrus, truly a fine IPA, maybe the best I've tried.

Can. #400 for me! Sadly, it was a letdown of a beer I really hyped :( Aroma was decent with citrus and tropical fruits, but a sweet maltiness was present, which I knew was a bad sign (at least for me, we all have different tastes and preferences). Flavor was very malty, sweet, orange, and had an apple juice taste. Not much as far as hop flavor stood out. This can was from the release before the recent 6-12 one. From my calulation that is only around one month. I’m kind of shocked that it would have already fallen off in that short window. Either that, or this was the way it was supposed to be and I just wasn’t a fan.
