look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

I think they were trying to create a west coast style IPA here. It least that,s what it looks like with it's orange amber colored.
Most hop forward IPA's I've noticed tend to be lighter in color.
It has a nice nose with tropical fruits but also some dank dirtiness too.
The taste is very light in flavor. It's sweet and bitter but not very tasty. The hops that were present in the nose are absent in the taste. Had that been the flavor we're talking a good beer.
A good dose of bitterness in the aftertaste with some alcohol warming the palate.
A good beer but just lacks flavor. I don't buy beer to smell it.

Real sweet they bottled this. Picked up a single for 3 bucks.

A - Oily like consistency and very dirty hop water amber looking color seems unfiltered. Head is minimum just a 1/4 inch that settles to a mild lace ring. Looks ok.
S - Herbal hop dankness with a touch of hard water which hopefully will not be incorporated in the taste. Smell is very bitter yet balanced.
T - Quite good an almost orange like hop bitterness with a squeeze of lemony hops. Taste is rather balanced and smooth with the malty sweet background.
M - Smooth light to medium body. Bitter but not watery

Overall again Voodoo nails it. The IPA is good like a lower ABV version of HTP. Hope to be able to pick up a six pack soon.

Had this on 2014-05-11 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy golden-orange with a 1/2-finger white head and mild lace.

S - Overly ripe pineapple, hop dank, light malt.

T - Hop forward dankness and pineapple followed quickly by metallic/herbal and then aggressive grapefruit flesh and zest bitterness. Not as dank as the aroma. Little malt balance; leaning heavily to a long-lasting drying bitterness on the finish.

M - Light-medium body and medium-heavy carbonation. Prickly, resinous at first, the crisp as it dries.

O - Well-made, hop forward, West Coast style IPA. Doesn't quite make it to the more malt-balanced Head Hunter IPA example that I compare this to. Enjoyed this though and definitely want to seek out more Voodoo Brewing Company Beers.

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.

3.8/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours a hazed orange amber color with a small head of billowy white foam. The head fades over a shorter period of time leaving a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is a very nice mix of fruit and hops. The aroma is strongest of tropical fruit smell with plenty of tangerine, mango and pineapple. This is mixed with a decent showing of a grapefruit hop as well as a little bit of a herbal smell. Some other fruit aromas of apple and pear are there as well, giving the brew an overall deliciously fruity sweet hopped smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweet fruity flavor mixed with some moderately strong caramel and lighter grapefruit flavors. Along with these flavors are some more bready tastes, helping create a nice base flavor for the brew. While the grapefruit starts weak, it grows quite a bit stronger toward the end of the taste with it being joined by some other hop flavors of an herbal, pine, and earthy nature as well. The fruit flavors that were present upfront are of the tropical flavor as was detected in the nose. While the fruit was heavy upfront, it faded quite a bit as the flavor advances to the end, revealing a much drier biscuit taste. With all the hop flavors increasing, as well as the lessening of the fruit flavors of the brew, one is left with a somewhat drier and more crisp, largely bitter, grapefruit hop flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker and creamier side for a brew of 7.4 3 % abv. with a carbonation level that is on the average side. The slightly thicker body coupled with the average carbonation are quite nice for the blend of sweeter fruit upfront with the drier and hopped flavors that come at the end. Rather well done overall.

Overall – A rather nice and approachable IPA. While really not worth the bomber price of $7.50, when compared to many 12 oz. that are of a similar genre, it is well worth at least one try.
