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.

Pours a nice semi hazy amber with a lasting light beige head. Smell is fresh, but mild, slightly fruity and citrusy. Taste is a bit astringent and bitter with some citrusy hops too. Nice lasting bitterness and resiny flavor. Average to thin body for the style, but easy drinking. Pretty solid beer.

Thanks to Kingpin,I am on such a roll of fantastic brews. This aroma was like sticking my head into a bag of citus hops,smelled like a creamsicle at first,stunning in its all around great hop fragrance,flavor was a huge wash of bittering hops,with some caramel backing,not that theres anything wrong with that, but a little more mix of flavoring hops would have put this closer to the top still a wonderful hop bomb

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bomber. Thanks to Axilla for sharing. Poured slightly hazy golden in color with a large off white head. Aroma of floral hops, a bit of citrus hops. Tastes of floral hops, sweet caramel malt and it seems to hides the alcohol well. Very nice double IPA at 9.4%.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange. Aroma flavor is hoppy pine, sweet malt, spice and noticable etoh in the finish. Decent.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a small white head. Aroma is loaded with citrus hops, alcohol, and spicy yeast. Taste is the same as aroma but not as prominent. Medium resiny mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and smooth alcohol. Very good.

desurfer (1244) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Pours a bright orange with lively carbonation. Aroma is heavy on the citrus and is extremely hoppy. Flavor explodes with a massive amount of sticky, hoppy goodness and a good deal of alcohol. I’m not sure if this bottle is fresher than several of the recent reviews, but this is a hop monster that delivers on the promise its name implies. Great stuff.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours a particulate filled orange amber with tiny off white head. Aroma is kinda sweet and malty with some floral hoppiness. Flavor is similar, blending a sweet and caramel maltiness with a rather moderate bitterness and a resiny and lightly herbal hop presence. Rather light on both the hop flavors and hoppy bitterness for something that calls itself "hop juice" and my expectation may have thrown me off a bit. A slightly sticky mouthfeel with a rather clean finish. Good beer overall, but not the hop bomb I had expected.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with an almost white head. Quite bitter with some malty sweetness. Heavy hops aromas of grapefruit and a bit of resin. Hints of caramel sweetness. Full bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Long bitter finish.Very good.
