This beer pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin head and lacing that lasts to the end. It's aroma is fruity, flowery with a hint of honey. The flavor is grapefruit. It starts as sour grapefruit but gets smoother as it warms. There's not much here other than grapefruit. The mouthfeel is light-medium. Voodoo 4 Seasons IPA is an acceptable beer, not a hop bomb like most American IPAs, just one dimensional. Not recommended.

No freshness info. I have no idea what season this is.

Pours a copper/amber with 1 finger head. Spotty lacing.

The first characteristic I notice in the nose is wet cardboard and some sort of mineral smell. Definitely earthy.

Earthy, musty. Tastes similar to tea leaves. Very little pine. Fleeting flavor. I do notice a little breadiness which I assume is toasted malt.

Mouthfeel is solid. A little resiny. Not a lot of carbonation

I dont really taste very much alcohol. But, the cardboard/earthy/mineral smell is kind of throwing me off. I am also tasting a little too much in the way of malts. There is not enough bitterness in this IPA for me.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass.

A-As noted in most other reviews, the bottle almost explodes when you open it and the head is huge. But you really have to see it to believe it. After 10 minutes, the head was still climbing. I scraped off an inch of foam from above the rim of the glass (yes, above the rim) and another half inch 5 minutes later. After 20 minutes, the head hadn't really settled but instead left clumps of foam in the glass that looked like icebergs. Oh, yeah, the beer itself was a cloudy coppery amber. Not bad.

S-Not very hoppy, maybe a little floral. Kind of dull though.

T-Very earthy taste, no real piney or citrusy flavors. I am not sure I'd have guessed it was an IPA.

M-a little oily, not in a bad way but the chunks of foam are really distracting.

D-Probably a great beer to drink if you have to drive. It could easily take an hour and a half to get through what's left of the bottle after the initial gushing.

I really liked this one.

Well, maybe not. A bland beer that is really annoying to wait and wait to drink. I can't wait to see that slogan on the billboards.

Pours a hazy orange-ish to copper color, with a light tan head. In the aroma, a small pine hop and a dry bread like maltiness. In the taste, a small hop presence and a dry biscuit like maltiness. A bitter and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry hop stickiness and biscuit like aftertaste. Kind of malt heavy, and not that big on hops.

12 oz. bottle poured into a standard pint glass
aggressive pour revealeved a huge head which settled into a sudsy, off-white head which lasted throughout. Lacing was thin but also lasted. Color was a dark, cloudy orange/amber. The nose was VERY strong malt and not a lot of the hops you would expect in an IPA. There is some grassiness and orange and lemon, but the roasted malt is what hits you. The taste is not a shock after the nose - heavy roasted malt, a tinge of orange and lemon and ample bitterness, especially in the finish. Mouthfeel is a little creamy, moderate carbonation and fairly light. This beer reminded me of what an IPA would be like if kept in the cellar way too long. I know there are people who really like this style of an IPA but I am not one of them.

Reviewed from notes:

appearance: copper orange with 1 finger head

smell: citrus, hops, earth, grass,

taste: grassy, malts

mouthfeel: mild carbonation, medium body,

overall: just an average IPA. I'm a hophead I'm pretty sure I know when I taste the good ones.

Cheers,
The CPJ
