A fully hazy dull orange body almost darkens to a caramel hue, and is topped only by a thin little off-white ring.

Smell is dank fresh orange juice. It's like mandarin cuties, blood oranges, and even nectarines pureed up with some bobbing buds on top. There's a bit of a vegetal aroma on top of the cannabis.

Taste is PEZ with the underlying bitterness of a refreshing evergreen forest and that distinct hop cocktail of Juju, and maybe a hint of graham biscuit. The fruit really subdues the hop bite, though, and kind of suppresses it actually, so I can see why this is a popular annual treat with a certain crowd, but this further solidifies my view that regular Juju is a damn near perfect beer on its own.

The nicely full, round body has a moderate, solid hefty but non-frothy carbonation, finishing semi-dry to dry.

Super Juicy is a friendly, pedestrian version of Hop Juju--much higher tier than your typical fruit beer, but also a gateway to bigger things.

On tap at the Brew Pub

It is glowing, burnt orange color with a small cream colored head. It’s not turbid, but it is opaque. Definitely not like regular Ju Ju.

The aroma is very fruit forward and very strong. A lot of orange. It smells like marmalade.

The flavor is plenty of sour orange, but a lot more mango comes across. The fruit flavors taste authentic, but other than some bitterness on the back end, it really overpowers it.

I was glad to finally get to try this, but I don’t get the same experience as most people. It does live up to the name. I think this would appeal more to fans of the new NE Style IPAs.

This literally smells like liquefied tangerine jolly rancher upon opening the growler, didn't even need to put my nose near it. Nose was amazing with the taste completely following that of candy juicy tangerines with a medium mouth feel.

Flat out amazing. A totally different beer than regular Hop JuJu, but equally as good. The citrus steals the show, relegating the bitter to the back end. It's amazingly sweet without being cloying. Goes down way too easy.
