Free beer from work, bottled 10/23/12

A&S: Pretty great looking beer: hazy dark orange, cream colored foamy head that starts over a finger and a half and settles in thin layer on top. Leaves good amounts of lacing. Not very strong aroma; citrus and grassy.

T&M: It is probably due the beer being about 4 and a half months old, but it really doesn't have much to offer taste wise. Slight tropical, grapefruit, and citrus hops, decent amounts of bitterness in the finish (classic sign of the wet hopping). Alcohol is very well hidden, but I can feel it in my face. Quite smooth, mild carbonation, medium body.

overall: Despite it being on the older and not super flavorful side it is still probably my favorite from this brewing company. Would be interested in trying this one when it is fresh.

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.

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.

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.

A - Pours a amber/copper with an off white head
S - mostly hops, grapefruit, pine. hints of carmel malt. not as strong as expected.
T - Like the smell, lots of hop flavor. tropical fruit, grass, sweetness. More malty then expected. No one flavor sticks out more then the others.
M - medium body with a dry bitter finish.
O - Its good but not on the same level as many others.
