Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

One of the best noses on a beer I've come across. Lovely, full-on floral hops. This is a super classy DIPA, no juvenile, bitter hop bomb. The hops are huge and resinous -- on the pine side more than tropical fruit. The hops are well-balanced with a chewy malt that gives the proceedings a nice solid backbone. Great beer.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip shaped glass. Date on bottle is a bit f'd up but i think it says 2/13/14 which would make it about 3 weeks old.

The appearance is great, white, 1 inch head, semi-transparent light copper color with lacing all the way down. Smells like a mass of fruit, melon, grapefruit and random citrus, amazing. Taste is right there, super fruity and delicious. Plenty of carbonation but still smooth on the tongue. Better before it warmed. Overall this is prolly a top-five beer, right there with "Lunch", "Another One", "Sculpin" and the like of super fruity beers. Cheers.
