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.

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear amber with slight off white head. Aroma is fruity with citrus and tropical notes. Moderate bitterness with nice malt backbone. Excellent tasting with flavors of grapefruit, orange, melons, caramel, toffee, pine. Exceptional imperial IPA.

Pours clear orange with quickly dissipating head.
The aroma is citrus and herbal hops with a light maltiness.
The flavor is sweet malt up front with a juicy and piney hop on the finish. It's a bit heavy for a 9% IIPA. It's got a thick oily mouthfeel.
Overall it's good, but it isn't anything special. I wouldn't make getting this a priority.
