Another unreal hop monster from Fat Head's. A slightly sweeter, even more fruity version of the original as they added Florida tangerines to this variation. Dangerously drinkable so be careful. This could easily catch up on you. The only drawback is so few BA's will be able to try it.

Very well done Fat Head's

64 oz. growler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Big white head. Good retention.

Smell - Lots of orange. Orange peel. Very bright. Behind it is a strong malt base. Toasty malts. Lots of resiny pine hops, too.

Taste - Bright orange. Blends a little better than it does in the aroma. Caramel and toasted malt flavor. Back end gets a little grassy.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Well carbonated, especially for a growler.

Overall - Excellent. The orange flavor is a nice addition.

64 ounce growler
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours amber in color with orange highlights. A timid pour yields less than an inch of beige head that leaves little in the way of lacing.

It smells like orange juice, plain and simple.

It tastes like fresh oranges with some bitter grapefruit in the finish.

Medium mouthfeel

I finally managed to try this beer. Fat Head's does amazing things with hops. This is yet another home run by one of the best breweries in Ohio if not the world.

32oz growler filled at Fat Head's Tap House in Middleburg Hts., Ohio

This batch is 9.5% abv. I believe the abv varies from batch to batch. Growler poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy burnt golden; small off-white head that leaves nice bubbly retention and little lacing. The aromas are great. It's all citrus. Tons of orange, tangerine and lemon. It's like fruit juice. Not much hop aroma, all fruit. The flavors follow the nose. Huge citrus bomb. It's like drinking fruit juice. The fresh orange notes shine. More lemon and lime. Some fresh pine as well. Some resin notes. The hops are there, but overshadowed by the bright citrus. It's bittersweet. It's not brutally bitter. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's slick and smooth. It's very easy to drink and is dangerously drinkable.

This is a great brew. It's like drinking fruit juice more than drinking a beer, but it's still has more than enough "beer qualities". It does't come off as artificial at all. I might personally edge regular Hop Juju, but this is still great and highly enjoyable. Once again, it's dangerously drinkable. I definitely understand why this one is highly rated. It's probably even better than my "numeric score" might indicate. Well done.

This beer is so crushable it's scary. Not sure I've ever had a beer hide the almost 10% ABV so well. I love JuJu, but Super Juicy destroys it. If you like Citrus this beer is for you.
