L: Pours hazy golden with an inch of head that settles nicely

S: Strong citrus notes and piney. You can tell it's a strong IPA.

T: Very hoppy and very piney. Pineapple hints come out stronger the more you drink and pretty bitter. Can still taste the alcohol but not as much as I expected for having such a high ABV. Very good and refreshing.

F: Light, a little spicy from the alcohol and medium to high carbonation.

Overall very delicious and goes with just about everything. You'll want to drink a few in one sitting but the high alcohol will keep you from it. Quintessential Imperial IPA and does everything it's supposed to.

This is up there with the best ones in my opinion. Really juicy...nice and citrusy hoppy. Just got this on tap from a brewpub while visiting my Dad and home town. I hope I can find this again up in my neck of the woods.

12oz. bottle: This one pours a slightly hazy golden color. There was a small off white head that leaves some lacing. Good hop nose. Mainly resinousy pine hops. Some tropical and citrus notes also. The taste is also very good. Resinous piney hops, along with some citrus and tropical flavors. Fairly bitter with no residual sweetness. Nice!

I received a bottle of Hop Juju in a ninja box from the Newbies! I've been looking for this one for a while, so my heart skipped around a bit when I opened the box. I always love trying new IPAs - but ones that are so highly rated, and for so long... well now.

Hop Juju has some curious esters to it - a bit of banana, perhaps? It's quite hoppy, but I can't exactly nail down the style. The consistency and syrupy-ness tend to make me think this is a bit more in step with West Coast style IPAs, but it's very difficult to categorize. It has a sweetness, but likewise a bitterness. It's very palatable and nicely balanced.

This was worth a hunt, and a wait. It's quite good.

Good color and nice head rentention. For a higher ABV I don't necessarily taste the alcohol but a nice smooth beer with definite hop finish with a bit of spice.
