Served from a can released six days ago into a tulip glass.

A: A dark amber hue with a white head that dissipates quickly.
S: Hints of ripe tropical fruit as well as some pine.
T: Some dank tropical fruit and very citrus forward.
F: On the verge of being chewy and pleasantly sits on the palate. Smooth but not overly creamy.
O: I hadn't heard of this beer before stopping by the brewery, but this was a pleasant surprise to walk away with some cans of. A very nice refreshing and fruity IPA.

Pours out a very hazy burnt orange.

Aroma has lots of juicy tropical and citrus notes like mango and orange!

Taste is also juicy, refreshing and tropical. Pineapple, mango and sweet orange, some dank notes underneath it all and very citrus forward in general.

Medium bodied, creamy kind of mouthfeel and super smooth for a DIPA!

Voodoo is kicking ass with these NE style IPAs!

Pounder can into a snifter appears a creamy orange color with a finger of white head that holds well fading slowly. I cant help but compare and say it - its got dat stereotypical northeastern feel about it already.

Aroma is herbal and minty with hops, slight citrus pulp, grass and pith/rinds akin to orange/grapefruit.

The flavor is hoppy to the extent that it tastes like some form of fruit juice was added. Amazing that a brewery can create that feeling without having to resort to actually putting fruit in their ipa. Bitter pithy/pulpy/rindy oranges and grapefruit with slight minty hop edge and then mild pineapple and grassiness.

Light in body with modest carbonation. A fantastic ipa that is effortlessly drinkable at 8%. This brew gives all the Northeast hype juice (in similar packaging) a run for its money. Keep those cans a coming Voodoo because I want to drink them all before folks catch on to just how amazing this shit is right here in PA. If given the choice, 10 out of 10 times id reach for any of the last 6 can releases from Voodoo over anything the Alchemist/Trillium/Treehouse is doing. There... I said it.

Looks like a nice unrefined IPA.
Smells like someone added some spices and brown sugar to a bowl of melted butter.
Tastes like Eric Esch, covered in movietheater butter juice.
Great feel. Full body, nice carb, even a little hint of alcohol in a good way.
Overall the diacetyl is too overwhelming for my likes. Most likely would not drink it again.
