look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

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.
