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.

22 ounce bottle from Oggis in San Diego, CA--Poured a West Coast Style pale amber-copper body with a fluffy thick whitish head. Nice hoppy, floral, piquant nose. Very citrus and grapefruity! Sticky, gripping with a hearty malt underpinning. Very delicious!!!

22 oz bottle. Copper/white head. Hops, citrus, pine aromas. Extravagant & in your face use of hops. Balanced and intricate flavors with small malt. Citrus. Bitter but not too offensive. Flavor stays with you.Could drink all night long but 9.4% says you wont be doing too much else.

Draft. Amber beer with a nice off-white head. Grapefruit aroma with caramel and some pine. Rich caramel flavor with grapefruit and somoe resin. Lingering caramel and citrus. Lots of malt, needs a bit more bitterness.
Earlier Rating: 7/27/2005 Total Score: 3.7
Draft. Rich dark amber beer with a nice off-white head. Hoppy aroma (grapefruit/pine) with a lot of sweet malt. Flavor has tons of caramel to back up lots of citrus/pine hops. Velvety/creamy/rich mouthfeel very good. My only complaint was there was too much caramel malt in the flavor - I wish it was toned down a little to let the hops ompletely overpower.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Bomber. Poured a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is very hoppy with a very complex blend of hops. Some pineapple and citrus present. Taste is similar with more big hops, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit. Some caramel also backing this one up nicely. Mouth is sticky and finish is bitter. A very nice IIPA.

22 oz bomber. Pours to a slightly hazy orange color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is fragrant with zesty citrus and piney hop aromas. The palate is firm, with good pale, and caramel malts, paired with zesty/tangy hop flavors of grapefruit and lemon. This beer finishes with more good pale and caramel malt sweetness up front, the ends with a zesty piney/citrus hop bite that lingers. Wow. I found this beer to be an outstanding example of a double IPA. Tons of hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness, with a good malty base to stand up to the hop assault. This is hop juice, in a very good way. A perfect aperitif beer, and a nice beer to sip and relax with as a hop coctail, after a long hard day at work.

Pours a glowing orange color with a foamy white head that settles fast. The aroma is all hops on this one with the bitter orange and grapefruit hops coming through along with a toasted caramel smell. The flavor is much the same with the bitter citrus and grapefruit hops dominating with some sweet caramel on the back end. The caramel tries to balance things out, but this one is all hop bitterness. Medium bodied and almost sticky mouthfeel from all the pine resin with a long, really bitter finish. This is one of the hoppier DIPA’s that I have had. Pretty solid, but nothing crazy by any means.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2008
Courtesy juiceisloose. Pours a very lightly hazy, glowing orange amber color. A foamy, off-white head settles quickly, leaving sudsy micro-spot lacing behind. Aromas include a buttery toffee malt base, with bitter orange and grapefruit hops showing alongside a strange, lightly soapy note. Flavors again showcased citrus hops up front, with the toffee intensifying in sweetness on the back end. Medium, slightly sticky body. Pretty straightforward and simple, but lacking in integration. Decent beer.

Bottle: Golden copper with a smaller sandy head. Nose is citrusy sweet and floral. Very bright and crisp. Malty and resinlike flavors up front with a lot of floral and citrus hops. Clean, dry finish. Mmmmm, dry hopped! Thanks Sparky77

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Clear copper pour, medium white head. Aroma is pineapple, citrus and sweet malts. Flavor is full blown hop juice, citrusy hops and a big melon taste to it dominate but there is a nice floral background, sweet caramel is very much there. Resiny aftertaste, very dry mouthfeel, medium mouthfeel. Fresh, bitter but not heavily and just tasty.
