Beer added by: Jason on 10-17-2012

Bursting with 1.6 oz per gallon of American hops, Julius is loaded with notes of passionfruit, mango, and citrus. At 6.5% alcohol, it is refreshing and freakishly drinkable.

750ml growler poured into a tulip. Enormous thanks to MattOC for this one.

Pours a hazy orange with a dense, frothy one-finger head that subsides over the course of a minute or so, leaving plentiful cobwebby lacing.

Smells...wow. Smells like orange juice laced with weed, if such a thing were to exist. Huge orange with pronounced mango and passionfruit underpinnings, as well as dank and earthy floral hop notes. Neck-and-neck with Bissell Brothers' The Substance for best-smelling single IPA I've ever had.

Taste follows the nose almost to a tee, and that is by no means a bad thing. Opens with a tremendous burst of fresh-squeezed orange juice, with passionfruit, mango, pine sap, and lightly toasted caramel malt appearing mid-palate. Initial sweet orange and tangerine note transitions smoothly into blood orange and ruby red grapefruit towards the mid- and back-palate, with a lingering citric and lightly earthy bitterness.

Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation, lush and slick.

Amazingly smooth, amazingly drinkable. Absolutely top-notch. Once again, huge thanks to MattOC for giving me this growler.

Thank you Kunckle Neil

Kinda orange colored? It was getting dark out. Smells like being teabagged by a hop monster. Or motor boating a hop goddess. I prefer that latter but the former seems to convey more "up in it" which is what I'm going for. Dank, dank, dank orange citrus aroma with an accompanying verdant leafy greenness. Tastes like it smells, I'm guessing that Julius is short for Orange Julius. Thick, heavy body laden with hop oil.

We did a comparison with Heady Topper and Julius emerged the victor if that says anything.

Special thanks to Matt (blckout20) for sending me a growler of this gem via trade. Cheers, Matt!

Poured from growler into Hill Farmstead tulip glass. Beautiful deep orange/amber color. Fluffy, white, inch-thick head which quickly dissipated, leaving white collar and LOTS of sticky lacing throughout. Zillions of very tiny bubbles. Nose is danky tangerine & mango citrus with hint of piney resin. On the palate, orange/mango & papaya/pineapple combos compete, as malt emerges. Alcohol is there, but barely detectable and well-masked by balanced by other goings-on. Mouthfeel is full, warm, ample, cozy, and inviting. Carbonation is subtle, but appropriate. All in all, a very favorable impression, even though the growler was 11 days old. I can't even begin to imagine how incredible this might be fresh from a tap. I hope to find out some day. Until then, add me to the long list of admirers at the altar of Julius.
