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.

Draft at Baileyís in Portland. Mostly clear orange with a one finger white head. Aroma is great, orange, mango and tropical notes, sugar, caramel, candy. The flavor has a nice hop/malt balance, which people on the west coast rarely appreciate, but as an East coast transplant, I do. Nice malty candy caramel base, very hoppy but not super bitter, nice orange and tangerine. Medium full bodied, great crisp feel. Solid. How does Fat Heads always crush it? Donít care, will drink anytime.

Clear brilliant gold under a thin white cap. Bright dank and piney aroma thatís got some grapefruit pith. Big hoppy and hugely bitter flavor thatís earthy and leafy acidic and pale malty. Too acidic hoppy for me.†

Boutip (6087) - 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.

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.
