Notes / Commercial Description:
The magical hops cast their spell, the natives chant and the drums beat... First let us confirm that there is no witchcraft used in creating this fine brew. None. Really. Well maybe a little. A supernatural beer with a powerhouse of hops creating aromas and flavors of citrus, pine and tropical fruit with a juicy resiny hop finish. Hakuna Matata.

Total hop overload. Maybe too much for some, but totally worth seeking out.

4 pack Whole Foods in Cleveland. Pours a clear orange/light copper colour with limited off white head. Aroma dank piney, citrus, slightly floral, creeping into sweaty, but deliciously so. Taste starts sweet for a millisecond before the pine bitterness slaps you with a sticky resinous blast on the back of just a touch of caramel malt. Finishes slightly sticky with palate coating bitterness that warns against consuming anything else for a while, yet not a punishing bitter, a wondrously tasty one! Absolutely great.

Poured into a snifter.

4.0 A: Clear light orange color. One finger of frothy white head that fades slowly into a short ring of lacing.

4.25 S: Delicious! Pretty much all hops with pine, floral, and citrus all up in your face. Grassy and spicy underneath. The citrus is mango forward with lemon trailing.

4.0 T: Mild-moderate bitterness. Resiny and sticky hoppiness. Shrubbery, evergreen sap, pine, again with mango citrus. Spicy finish. Alcohol is detectable throughout, but isn't overbearing. Bready malts underneath with light caramel notes.

4.25 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation with a pleasant creaminess that lays well on the tongue. A bit sticky on the finish, but leaves a subtle warmth that carries over the the next sip.

4.25 D: Definitely solid and well rounded. No flaws and supremely drinkable.
