Enjoyed at the Copenhagen Beer Fest. Reviewed from notes.

A - Poured a nice hazy golden hue with a nice one finger white head that fades quite slowly to leave light lacing.

S - Aromas of big tropical hops, pineapples, little bit of vinous notes. Big, bright New Zealand hops with just a little bit of malts.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with excellent bright New Zealand hops, very nice soft citrus and melon flavour. Big tropical notes of pineapple, guava, and passion fruit.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, decent body.

O - Overall this was a delicious IPA at the fest. Really nice use of New Zealand hops in this one.

Merry Christmas to me. This version was brewed with Sauvignon Blanc juice and Nelson Sauvin hops.

It pours like a pulpy, unfiltered apple cider with a sort of a milky orange haze. The head on top is slow rising and bright white with minimal retention.

Heaps of pear puree and ripe peach layer on each other. There's a creamy, fluffy marshmallow and vanilla sweetness that gives off a smoothie impression. Bright green resin shines through the creaminess.

Its lead foot is fruity; crushed pineapple and bright Riesling with a light smack of acidity. Peach skins on the back end with a whipped caramel marshmallow sweetness. The finish is slightly sticky and green with just a pinch of bitterness.

The level of fruity acidity paired with its clean streak of bitterness lightens up the body. Its texture is mostly creamy but doesn't carry weight because of it.

A bright, balanced, and lush IPA. The Sauvignon Blanc juice addition really compliments its tropical fruit forward hop character without exerting too much "winey" or vinous qualities. The creamy marshmallow sweetness and how it balances out all of its fruity/winey characteristics is this beer's highlight for me.

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.
