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 2Ė 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.

Iím a big fan of IPAs and Left Coast, but just donít care for this beer. Itís very one-note - just hops and nothing else. Slightly cloudy pour. Aroma is lots of pine, a little citrus. Flavor is an over-poweringly resin. Very dry finish.

Pours a burnt orange color with a white head. Hop, citrus, biscuit, pine and malt aroma. Resinous hop, citrus, pine, biscuit and malt flavors. Medium body and average carbonation. Moderate bitterness with a citrus hop finish.

There is no better double IPA out there. Subtle then commanding. Good hops throughout and doubky on the back end. Brilliant!

574deadzone (891) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2014
An awesome gift from Satan himself! Smuggled from Sin City. Pours a hazy glowing orange with a decent khaki head that settles quickly to a ting and leaves some fine, splotchy lace. Nose involves deep pine forest, mango, grapefruit, brown sugar, some spicy high-alpha stuff, and Jimi Hendrixís wah-pedal. Pretty sweet, but also very bitter. Medium to full bodied, very oily, softer action, somewhat grainy, actually crisp despite its size, with a long bittersweet finish. Pretty damn tasty, lots of good stuff in this one. Definitely a breakfast beer.

SHANER4 (455) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle-poured clear copper color with bubbly off white head. Aroma-tropical fruits, pine and sweet malt. Just an excellent smelling beer! Taste-resinous pine sap and sweet malt. Has alcohol taste similar to vodka, kinda strange! Palate-sweet on initial contact , then bitter on the tongue with alcohol burn at the finish. Overall a pretty decent beer. I think if the alcohol was a little less it would be rated higher?!

pinkzambia (1395) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold color with a small head. Citrus hop aroma, with a mostly hoppy bitter flavor. Not as much sweetness in initial flavor as some 2IPAís. A bit of rubber in the aftertaste. Solid west coast 2IPA.

commonmac (196) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2014
Tap at New Bohemia. Color is a light piney copper. Very persistent head. Impressive appearance. Aroma is hoppy floral and very appealing. Taste is smooth. A little alcohol, some strong hops, a little malt. A definite hop-centric beer that delivers with good quality. Iíll be sipping in Hop and Juice for awhile. Laid back.

strongpieman (1390) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle. Slightly cloudy amber with a light tan head. Strong hop aroma with lots of malt to cut with some sweetness. Long lasting bitter finish.

maneliquor (2791) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. A seriously sticky and dank driven IPA. Plenty of juicy tropical fruits with heavy resinous notes of sticky toffee and pine. Comes together well, quite aggressive bitterness to finish. Tasty stuff

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.
