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.

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.
