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

Pours a dark amber red with nice head and lacing. Smells nice - fruity, hop heavy, pine, citrus, oily. Nice medium bodied feel - good bitter forward palate - wet hopped equates to a juicy hop forward clean drink. Finishes dry and bitter - the dryness lingers on the palate.

Overall, this is a solid DIPA, but isn't go to brew and I'm not sure I will have it again considering all the other options in this category.

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

Pours a handsome hazy orange copper color with a a lasting off white head and generous amounts of foamy lacing. The aroma is hoppy with notes of grass, pine, and some floral hops. I can tell by the nose that this bottle is slightly past its prime. There is also a decent malt backbone in the aroma. This definitely has promise of being balanced. The mouth is nice, just the right balance of sippably smooth and mouth coating resiny goodness. The flavor starts out very nicely with a punch of hops upfront followed by a nice malt note to balance the taste. Unfortunately, the aftertaste is an unpleasant bitterness of stale hops. I'm not knocking this one super hard for this as I know that I am not drinking the freshest bottle. This is good and definitely something that I will seek out this fall when it is fresh and re review.

A - Pours a nice burnt orange with a thin whit head.

S - Nice sweetness comes first followed by a good amount of piney hops and citrus.

T - Follows the smell. Lots of bitter hops and light amount of citrus. Lots of sweetness. Nicely balanced.

M - Medium bodied with light carbonation. Dry finish.

O - Good beer. Nothing mind blowing but I would drink again.

So I did the side by side taste with Founders Harvest and I got to hand it to North Peak but this Hoodoo is the champ. The color reminded me of BrooDoo by Three Floyds while it did not have its nose it was a close second to my favorite wet hopped ale.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured from bottle into DFH pint glass. Says "OCT 2011" on the side. So I'm guessing I'm around week 8 or so.

Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy deep amber/copper color with a BIG head, man, almost over filled my glass. Big bubbles, receding quickly, but a thin film remains on the beer for quite some time. Really no lacing to speak of.

Nose: The nose is straight citrus. Orange, some lemon zest.

Taste: I'm almost getting a stomach bile like character off this beer. Lots of really tart and bitter citrus, but nothing really to support it. Hardly any malt.

Mouth: The prickly carbonation leaves an odd sensation in my mouth. Hard to really pin down the exact flavors, and get a sense of this beer, kind of a mess.

D & O: I'm not sure what is going on here, but I'm not a fan. It was unpleasant.

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

A: Amber/orange bodied beer, hazy. Ton of carbonation lead to a foamy two finger off-white head. Good retention with globby lacing.

S: Whoa, dank hop scent here. Lots of floral and vegetal as well. Bready malt background, nice balance.

T: Quite a bit of floral hops here, some herbal tones as well. Bready background. Quite bitter grassy finish.

M: Medium body, somewhat creamy, high carbonation.

O: Good solid IPA, nice variety with the "dank" hop profile
