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.

On tap at Growler Guys.

A clear light copper with a dense, white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is pungent and dank with pine, weed, grapefruit pith, orange juice. Malt character is minimal. The palate opens bitter and pungent with pine, grapefruit, weed, resiny and dank with a pronounced bitterness. Minimal sweetness is present. The mid palate has more oily bitterness and pungency. Butter and oily on the finish, this is a light bodied DIPA that's delicious. Recommended.

Amazing smell. Tastes of dank hoppiness. It's in your face and takes two or three turns to appreciate. But once you figure this one out, it's the only thing you want to drink. Wish it was available year round. Similar to Head Hunter, but amplified on all levels.

Brilliant transparent copper color. Fluffy white created through a vigorous pour. A bright, citrusy aroma rounds out the simple nose of this beer. Smells absolutely delicious to all the hopheads out there. Piney, citrus, floral, mango and tropical fruit hops dominate the flavor. Its body is nice and medium bodied. This is a wonderful beer, get it whenever you see it.
