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 strong pour only gets about an inch of light tan head. Head fades to a rim skim in about two minutes. Body is classic golden honey in tone. Nose is big and juicy with tons of citrus just bursting to get to you smeller. Almost like smelling hoppy orange marmalade. Zesty and bright as the flavor jumps on the tongue. Strong grapefruit tones are mixed with piney, prickly notes. This is a very bold beer with a powerful bitter bite all throughout the body of this beer. This is really a hop lovers dream just a bitter blizzard on the taste buds. Only drawback for me is that the alcohol is just a tad bit hot, but not at all off putting. Wonderful overall.

Excellent all around. The aroma is a bit better than the taste for me, but both are on point. A bit more bitter than the DIPAs I'm used to, but I like that. No cloying sweetness, just an endless hop assault. Well done.

One of the best imperials I've ever had. Huge tropical fruit with perfect amount of bitterness. Mouthfeel a bit thin, but other than that, close to perfect.
