Intensely tropical and fruity, this one delivers. It's a very pretty beer with deep golden color and a nice white head. The smell is pretty straight forward and one dimensional without being overly simplistic. All sorts of berries and tropical fruit pop from this one. The taste is a more intense version of the nose with mango leading the way. Clean with a low bitterness on the finish and no detectable alcohol from the 7.3%. If this was easily available in my part of town, this would enter the rotation along side Head Hunter as a staple in my fridge.

This is a homerun for Matt Allyn and company up in Meadville, PA lately everything I've had from them has been killer...Voodoo has matured and I can buy a case of Good Vibes in 12 ounce bottles!!!

Pours a hazed apricot golden orange glowing body with a big frothy white head, which clings to the sides of my imperial pint glass. Really appetizing it looks like the essence of hops perfect color for a west coast style IPA.

Aroma explodes into the senses with mango, tropical fruit, dank qualities, citrus fruit very bright and aromatic the label mentions the use of alot of new age hops 5 additions during the boil and 2 hops used for dry hopping.

Flavor citrus rinds, dank mary jane, tropical fruits balance it out with some sweetness bready light base malts do the same. A really intense yet balanced hop bitterness so easy to consume and delicious to experience the bounty of hops utilized in this beer hit the hop head's palate just perfectly.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied even carbonation slick hop oils lubricate everything dry perfect finish complete with tasty hop burps.

Overall, the best IPA I've ever tasted out of Voodoo brewing company the skills of Matt Allyn have definitely developed plus I heard the head brewer is kicking ass!

Part of a beer share, this followed a La Cumbre Full Nelson and a Permanent Funeral. Both tough acts to follow and in reality, for many reasons this should have gone first. Still, it held its own.

A- Cloudy pale gold in color, the appearance reminds me of a wheat beer. Frothy finger thick head. Heavy carbonation. 4.1

S- Marijuana-like dankness, pine, lemon, a variety of aromas. Bitterness is apparent on the nose. 4.1

T- Very fruity and I'm still thinking wheat beer, maybe like A Lil Sumpin, but with some resinous pine and a lemony finish. 4

M- Light, but then again I had this after two DIPAs. I am really enjoying drinking this and feel it is easy to throw back. The bitterness and dry finish are big, but there's a mellow malt aspect. 4

This is a sleeper of a beer. I'd never heard of it, but I'm impressed. This beer does a lot of things right. 4.05

First Visit to the Voodoo Brewery Brewpub was great, worth checking out for sure.

This was from a 2L growler filled the day before reviewing.

Look: Mostly clear, Copper tone, about an inch and a half of white head. Poured into a Voodoo Pub Glass. Nothing out of the ordinary for this kind of IPA

Smell: Arguably the best part of this beer. Phenomenal and shoots out of the glass. I get a lot of tropical fruit, Mango, Passion Fruit, Pineapple, slight berry. The Galaxy and Mosiac are certainly there and at the forefront of this beer. Slight Pine

Taste: Wow you get everything that you smell, lots of tropical fruit with a pine background to hold it in check. Very juicy taste. Bitter but not to a fault. The alcohol is hidden well and this is just a great tasting beer. This isn't a crisp west coast like Pliny type finish it's a wet finish that lingers and is really good.

Mouthfeel: Well carbonated, good body, high side of thin, Just enough of a malt presence to support the flavor profile.

Overall: Can't wait to have this in cans. This is a world class IPA that is right up there with the bests in show. Voodoo hit a home run with this. I'm going to finish this growler off now!

I usually stay away from anything IPA that is too hoppy, but I absolutely love this beer. Very smooth with great flavor. The hard to get hops that make up this beer compliment each other perfectly and give it an amazing taste. Curt Rachocki, the mastermind behind this new brew delivers a masterpiece. Well done sir...

On tap at Voodoo Brewing Company in Meadville, PA.

Pours a clear light amber, with a small quarter inch head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells just delightful- big herbal pine notes, grapefruit, and the slightest smidgen of sweet malt.

This beer has possibly the cleanest bitterness I've ever had. It's quite bitter, herbal dank and piney, but it doesn't linger at all- it's almost refreshing. I get a bit of menthol here, which is a nice touch. There's also a healthy dosing of IPA-style citrus, grapefruit and orange. Not a whole lot of malt flavor noticed, it's there, providing a good backbone for the beer, but doesn't stand in the way of the hop assault at all.

This has a clean, sprightly, and crisp mouthfeel, just amazingly drinkable. It's light and heavy at the same time, if that makes sense. Light in the sense that it's easy to drink- but heavy in the sense that there's a ton of flavor packed in there.

My ramblings above should indicate to you that you should try this beer immediately.
