Crowley purchased today being drank out of a Spoonwood Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours an amazing hazy yellow to slightly yellowish/orange color with about an inch of head present! Lacing is present with great retention!

Smell: Juicy tropical notes present along with grapefruit and some floral notes!

Taste: Taste follows the nose for me! Great tropical and grapefruit notes! Malts are well hidden in this one!

Feel: Medium bodied with a bit of softness!

Overall: Great IPA from the crew at Voodoo! Missed the first three batches but glad to finally get my hands on this and it didn't disappoint! I recommend getting to Voodoo and picking up this batch or a future one if more are brewed!

On tap at Voodoo Brewery in Meadville, PA.

This one pours a hazy light yellow, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

This one smells pretty floral, with some guava and grapefruit.

The taste is basically. There's an odd fruit flavor I'm getting out of this that I can't really place. Odd doesn't mean bad here, it just means my tastebuds aren't refined enough to know what's going on. I do get guava and grapefruit, and a really pleasant floral bitterness. There's no much in the way of malt character here.

This is light bodied, crisp and clean, with a good level of carbonation.

This is a pretty unique little IPA here- Voodoo makes awesome stuff.

Opaque tan-yellow with a white foam.

Smell is mint, vanilla cream, and dank pine.

Taste is sharply bitter but dank and herbal pine, with lemon, red apple skin, and cannabis.

This has a chalky dry chew with a medium to full body and thick fizz. Easily the better of the bunch we had on draft.

Pours out a hazy bright yellow like pineapple juice.

Aroma is awesome! Big white wine/white grape, passionfruit and pineapple. Very juicy and tropical.

Taste follows the aroma with a huge white wine character that leads into juicy passionfruit, mango and pineapple and some earthy dank notes too.

Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel and a hint of bitterness behind all the juicy flavors!

Easily up there with Tree House/Trillium, etc awesome beer!

Pounder can into a Voodoo teku appears a pretty muddy color of pulp laden orange juice smoothie with a white cap that stands firm.

Aroma is brilliant with fruited hop character all bright and zesty upfront with a slight grassiness and hop dust feel. Quite a vinous interplay with the herbal medly of hops.

The taste brings forth exactly what you would expect based off the nose. Fruity hop nuance meets vinous appeal. It is grassy and catty upfront blending to almost a sweet grape juice thing in the middle and finishes bitter and herbal.

Medium in body with modest carbonation. The nose is absolutely on point as is the taste but by Voodoo IPA standards I was surprised to find this had just a wee bit of residual sugar across the middle. Regardless, fantastic and worth seeking out.

Canned (batch 2) with sauvignon blanc juice, which I preferred slightly over the batch 1.
