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.

A truly great double IPA. It comes in at 9%, but doesn't seem boozy at all. Gorgeous orange-copper color and pours with a strong head that lasts. Nice hope profile - not overbearing, but strong.

I will always stop into fat heads late in the winter for lunch to have a Hop JuJu on tap. The South Side Fat Heads. I love this beer.

Pine, orange rind, brown sugar, grapefruit. Hops are faint. This bottle is two months old. Mouth feel is full and clean. Very nice.
