COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Left Coast Brewing Co. we pride ourselves on being one of the pioneers of Double IPA style craft beer. This hop monster uses Premium American 2– Row and a touch of light crystal malt to create a solid malt foundation. Five different Hop Varieties are used in the Hop Juice. It spends two weeks dry hopping in fermenter contributing to its great hop aroma. Starts out sweet and finishes with the crisp bitterness of a Double IPA. This drinkable blend will have you HOPPING till nights end.

Aroma is full of spicy and grassy hops. Bitter sticky pine at first, boozy citrus with a balanced malt backing. Lingers nicely on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Incredible hop aroma and taste perfectly balanced with sweet malts. The mix of the two makes the name Hop Juice quite appropriate.

Tap at devils advocate. Clear Orange in triple karmekit glass. Head is short lasting. Some fruity smell but very nice. Very clean taste throughout. Alcohol is hidden well. Crisp finish with the right amount of bitterness. Well done.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Deep, ruddy orange, with an almost opaque visual, and a big poofy head. Drinks with some serious viscosity, and a burning, oily resin. But it is quite drinkable for a 9.7% beer, so look out world. (#5449, 3/2/2014)

From notes, consumed on 6/9/13. Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy gold/honey orange with a finger of off-white head. Slow to moderate head fading with decent retention and light lacing. Aromas of toast, biscuit/bread, grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit, light pine. Tasting notes of toasted malt, bitter grapefruit, light pine, biscuit/bread, big hops. Malty mouthfeel with a medium body and semi-dry finish. Alcohol is pretty noticeable.

12 Fl. Oz. Poured clear, orange with a generous off-white head and lots of lacing on the glass. piney hops and mild malt notes. Taste has sweet malt notes that is actually necessary because it also has lots of heat from alcohol and bitterness from hops. Great DIPA very enjoyable.

For those among us who like a strong DIPA, this a great beer. Good nose, great hoppy taste, and strong finish. Glad I found this one.

Pours a merkey copper orange color with a thick frothy soapy head. Aroma is mild piney hops with a Sweet chocolate malt. Taste follows the Aroma well. Very some but very good ipa. More on the malty side then I was expecting. Yum!
