Pours from a 750 ml bottle, slightly hazed IPA unfiltered Hoodoo IPA from Matt Allyn and company in Meadville, PA. I'm really excited to see a new IPA bottled from Voodoo. Copper body, thicket of khaki off white head, speckled lacing gathers around the sides of the glass. Aroma has citric hops, grapefruit pith notes, ripened mango, tropical fruits with biscuit malts and very nice perceived bready sweetness. The spicy dank hop character pairs well with the citric tropical fruits on the palate the flavors blend well, usually once the brewer uses seven hops it becomes a muddled mess, that's not the case here. I like the malt profile pale malts just a touch of color 2 row, caramalt, carapils, and acidulated malts. As the beer warms up the pine and danker hops come out pretty clearly hop bitterness reigns through in each sip. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied oily slick hops texture the palate, carbonation is nice carries it all so well. Overall I'm very happy with this PA brewed IPA, besides Victory it's hard to recall another IPA done so well in the Commonwealth of PA.

Thank you Tommyguz for being my lifeline who assists me in trying all these great new voodoo offerings. 12oz bottle poured into a matching Voodoo teku. The brew appears a beautiful golden copper color with a finger of white head. The cap fades down to a thin film with spotty lace sticking to the glass. A swirl revives a finger effortlessly.

The aroma is fruity almost like orange marmalade and a sweet floral component. Grapefruit rinds blending to grass and herbs that has a fresh feeling like sticking your face into a palm full of crushed up pelletized hops. This smells like it is going to be some great stuff.

The flavor is quite bitter and rindy like chewing on fruit pulp/pith - more specifically grapefruit with a slight lemony aspect. It gets quite grassy to herbal in the finish with a dusty aspect like that previously mentioned grainy hop pellet feel. Quite herbal and dry in the finish.

This is a medium bodied brew with moderate carbonation. Look and nose are fantastic. The taste is a little gritty and dusty but still very much enjoyable. Its pretty easy to kill a couple bottles of this. I saw a lot of people mentioning this brew in the same vein as "Good Vibes" the abv is the same but that is where it stops. I very much prefer this and the usage of the 7 "C's" hops. Nicely done.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A- Body is a light crystal clear amber hue. Pours with a 2-3 finger foamy white head which has great retention. Lots of lacing is left behind in the glass and carbonation bubbles can be seen steadily rising to the top. A really beautiful beer.

S- Nose is fantastic. Grapefruit, citrus, and tropical fruits abound. Big, bright, citrussy hops everywhere. Some sugary sweetness can be detected in the background as well.

T- Flavor is not as bright as the nose. Some citrus, mostly orange, and grapefruit upfront-but pretty mild for the initial flavor. A lot of grapefruit juice and resin bitterness come through for the finish. A hint of grapefruit and a moderate amount of bitterness linger beyond the finish-but the bitterness lingers on forever.

M- Body is lightweight and carbonation is low to medium with small bubbles. Consistency is somewhere between slightly watery and slightly smooth and oily. Well done overall and the feel makes it pretty drinkable.

O- Overall this is a good, very drinkable, IPA. The flavor and mouthfeel are not as bright as the nose-but still are pretty well done. Somewhat of a one-sided citrus bomb with a moderate IPA bitterness. Its a fun IPA with little complexity.

Bottles picked up at Voodoo Brewing Company in Meadville, PA.

Pours a slightly dark orangeish-amber, with a half inch head, and not a whole lot of lacing.

Smells juicy and hoppy, with big pine notes, and a bit of bready, slightly sweet malt.

This isn't quite as good as Good Vibes, but still tasty. Very clean hoppiness here again, little yeast flavor, and with a slightly pronounced bready maltiness. There's a bit of sweetness both from the malt and the citrusy hops. Very nice.

This one is fairly light bodied, with a medium amount of carbonation, and a lively crisp mouthfeel.

Voodoo continues to really impress me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a modest head on top of the cloudy amber colored liquid; just a few dots of lace linger

Smell: Bready and piney

Taste: Bready, up front, and then the piney flavors take over; the bitterness grows, in the middle and into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nice IPA but not a particularly memorable one

12 oz bottle into standard pint glass, no freshness dating that I could find.

Hazy deep yellow body with big 1 " foamy head. Decent lacing. Good hop aroma

Mouth is soft, quite full. Hop bite does not oveerpower, but slightly bitter and tingly on the end of the tongue. There is a very faint mustiness from the bready malts.

Overall, a pretty good IPA. 7.3abv would prevent it being sessionable though.
