Absolution Brewing Co Juice Demon
What the brewers say
"A hazy IPA with Strata, Citra and El Dorado that is demonically juicy!"
What our panel thought
"Deep hazy yellow with a well structured white head. Big mid ferm dry hop aromas. Linalool, blueberry, and lavender. Ripe tropical fruit aromas leap from the glass. Some citrus peel and orange aromas. Bright and sweaty tropical fruit flavors float on top of a soft malt structure. Slight green apple and diesel notes. Gentle sulfitic aromas mixed in. Moderate sweetness throughout with a pithy finish. The hop flavors diminish on the finish and leave it a touch sweet."
What our editors thought
"Peach and pineapple aromas with herbal and grassy hops providing significant contrast, and a chalky candy fruit note underneath. Significantly sweet in the sip with light pineapple tropical tart notes, but not much hop bitterness. Body and sweetness are heightened by the lower carbonation. Nice flavors, a bit heavy and soft, but endearing."
