11/18/22, at the Saloon itself! Date day after hip Dr appt.

Definite juicy nose, slight wheatiness, Mandarin orange, and pine.

Beautiful bitter bite, full of mango, pine, Mandarin, and lemon peel. Finishes resin.

Beautiful mouthfeel. Bright at first then full and coating the sides of the tongue. Very heavily hopped!

Thanks to the incomparable fiver29, who just sent me a stupid box including this 32 oz. crowler. Split with my hot wife.

The pour is burnt sienna (wasn’t that a Crayola amongst the 64 with the sharpener?) with a fast-collapsing head that I won’t hold against it after the journey it just endured. The nose is frooty tooty.

Super Juicy Hop JuJu is drenched in mango. The mango is tart & sharp without being sour & is backed by that lovely JuJu bitterness that is so beloved in this household. Sub-currents of pear, citrus & as dry as the original. With a lower ABV this would be a great session IPA. Might be anyways.

Doesn’t quite rise to the elite level of the original but it's close. Another excellent entry to the Fat Heads IPA pantheon.

On draft at Fat Heads

Look: Slightly hazy amber with a thin white head

Smell: Hoppy and juicy. Fruity hops. Notes of mango and guava.

Taste: Bursting with fresh mango, tangerine, and grapefruit

Feel: Juicy and clean. Medium plus bitterness. Mild alcohol. Solid carbonation.

Overall: Original Hop juju is superior but this is a fun change of pace. Well worth seeking out.

Crazy good. So much fruit. Getting mostly tangerine/orange. Very little hop. Also 9% Abv, very dangerous

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.
