Good looking but no bottling date. 12oz bottle ($9/4 pack) into a DC Brau pint glass.

Really old school flavor with caramel malt sweetness. Floral hops, watery, medium bitterness. This was a decent IPA 5 years ago. Not anywhere bear good anymore.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy medium golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of huge tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, passionfruit, papaya, guava, berry, grapefruit, lemon, citrus zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, passionfruit, papaya, guava, berry, grapefruit, lemon, citrus zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, white bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, peach, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, passionfruit, papaya, guava, berry, grapefruit, lemon, citrus zest, light pepper/pine, cracker, white bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and zero lingering hop astringency after the finish. Moderate crisp/clean finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, and slightly resinous balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 7.3%. Overall this is an amazing IPA! All around incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical hops and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink; with the modestly bitter/drying finish. Spot on West coast style as intended, never overly aggressive on bitterness. Extremely juicy tropical/citrus/stone fruit hop complexity, with a nice balancing pale malt backbone. A highly enjoyable offering. Love the hop bill.

A solid standard IPA. Full bodied and complex - both sweet and hoppy. A bit too much alcohol taste compared to their other ales in my opinion

Poured a see-thru and well-carbonated orange body with one-finger head and soapy lace patch. Great smell of citric and oily hops with hints of grapefruit. Smooth, crisp, clean, bitterness is low with an earthy oily hoppiness and clean finish as well as touches of grapefruit sweetness.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a light golden with a mild chill haze but still has some clarity to it; bubbly white head that fades leaving nice bubbly retention and nice lacing. The aromas have citrus notes along with some bread and crackers. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose. Hints of orange and grapefruit. More bread and crackers. Some fresh grass in the mix. Malts do their thing but aren't dominant. Moderate bitterness. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with moderate to active carbonation. It's smooth and easy to drink.

This is an alright IPA. It's kind of "middle of the road", especially considering the hop bill. It's not bad at all. I guess I just personally expected something different.

Thanks to Drew, noslenword for this guy. No date on the bottle, interestingly it tells you the malts, OG, IBUs, etc, but not the hop bill, oh wait that's in the description, Galaxy, Amarillo, Mosaic, Apollo, this could be good.

Pours a smaller fizzy barely head covering, semi hazy golden yellow color.

Nose pretty big hops, citrus out front, as well as stone fruit, but it's more of a candied orange peel and apricot marmalade, little zest, candied tangerine, sweet malts, faint pineapple and tropical notes as it warms.

Taste brings sweeter malt flavors out front, a little toasty malt and sweet but not syrupy, then hops, a little spicy and raw hop bitterness, a mild citrus and pine, sap, zest, a bit of a tropical note but not much, maybe papaya guava thing, touch of pineapple, but like the nose the sweet malts give the perception of candied versions of teh fruits, a bit of a syrupy sweet finish

Mouth is med to bigger bod, a bit light on the carb.

Overall I felt like this could have been a lot better, maybe the overall big malt profile with sweetness, or lack of carbonation, or something seemed to detract from the hops, for which most of them didn't seem to get the invite. The beer seemed destined more for a big DIPA style sweet and very bitter than it should have with that all-star hop lineup.

Pours an average IPA light amber, aroma is piney, hoppy, citrus, very strong, taste is of a pine-resin-hoppy flavor, then a citrus, sweet background. I like this and it is local. Great job.

Mostly clear gold-orange with a thin white blanket.

Smell is a little catty and pretty dank with apricot and a hint of apple cider vinegar.

This one is really dry but crisp with flavors of lemon and grapefruit, but more bitter than fruity--not quite piney, but more like a romaine lettuce heart.

Pours a pale gold hue with minor carbonation and head, which fades quickly. Aroma is a familiar but inviting hop bouquet - floral Amarillo, grapefruit & orange, some Galaxy resin. Taste follows suit - it is more of a double IPA & features lots of hop resin, red grapefruit and pine. Everything is well-done & nothing is off. The only critique is that it lacks a distinct identity, but there are tons of bad IPAs out there these days so you can't be too hard on a good one just because it is somewhat anonymous.

12oz bottle poured into an East End Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours a nice straw to golden yellow color with about an inch of head present. Lacing is present with good retention!

Smell: Dank, citrusy, pine, hoppy, and some grapefruit!

Taste: Taste follows the nose for me! Some bitterness comes in at the end which is nice! Slight malt backbone as well! Really good tasting IPA!

Feel: Medium bodied!

Overall: Mighty fine American IPA from the crew at Voodoo! This is the first non-hazy IPA I have had from these guys and it did not disappoint! I will be revisiting this one frequently with them being right here in the Burgh!
