The magical hops cast their spell, the natives chant and the drums beat... First let us confirm that there is no witchcraft used in creating this fine brew. None. Really. Well maybe a little. A supernatural beer with a powerhouse of hops creating aromas and flavors of citrus, pine and tropical fruit with a juicy resiny hop finish. Hakuna Matata.

Just not my cup of tea. Perhaps it was just too old. I got extreme bitterness with very little sweetness. It was a bit flat, with not much carbonation. One I definitely wanted to try, but I would not seek it out again.

12 oz. bottle poured into a Chimay glass (bottled on 2/18/15, had on 3/18/15)

A: Nice burnished copper body with a three finger head that likes to linger with some lacing.
S: This is just straight papaya. Like a goddamn fruit salad. Tropical Island in a glass.
T: Tons of flavor from tons of hops. Surprisingly balanced but still a ton of pine and resin, especially on the backside.
M: Perfect level of carbonation for this beer. Just a bit of fuzz that just tickles the tongue and spreads the flavor.
O: 100 IBUs and 9% ABV goes a long way. This one produces some delicious burps. Pick one up!

Solid double IPA, one of the best I've had (well not quite in Heady territory). Great aroma and taste.
