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 Total Wine Sacramento. Medium, lasting head. A lot of effervescence, balance of maltiness and bitterness.

swanmann (658) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 2, 2011
From the big bottle: bright orange-amber tone, some haze and ample sticky yellow-white suds. Incredibly bright citrus rind (oranges) astringent aroma with caramel just peeking through. This is crazy good beer. It’s got a very fresh, clean hop presence, fairly sweet as well; full bodied. It’s an unmistakable IIPA.

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - AUG 2, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2010 Tap from Oggi’s in Orange. Very refreshing and well balanced. I could feel a slight buzz on one beer, which is rare for me. Really crisp hop, has the slight citrus/orange thing happening. I may have to pick up a growler of this to enjoy when I don’t have to drive home! Good beer! Original review was Aug of 2006 and I had this at a 3.9. I’m lowering it to a 3.3. Either my taste/palate has grown or this beer has become worse. I just had a bomber and it tasted like beginner homebrew. Maybe it was old. There was something bad about it and I’m wondering if that is what people call "astryngint" (sp?) .

TonyDiUlio (653) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Had at St Stephens. Pour is a clear amber with little head but it lasts on the sides of the glass from the pour. Aroma is bright floral hops but not very pungent. Flavor is a nice citrus and floral hop which really covers the tongue. Decent brew.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - FEB 5, 2006
Cask, Naja’s from early December. Golden pour. Lots of citrus and orange hop aromas, with some light caramel malt backing. Slightly sweet caramel flavors with generous amounts of citrusy piney and orange hops, with notes of candied fruits in there as well. Very nice.

ABV is hidden rather well in this well balanced brew. Not outstanding, but quite nice.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2010
A: snifter. pours a marvelous deep, rich copper color. Moderate head retention, and some really nice lacing. S: strong alcohol nose, with strong pine resin aromas. some burning citrus notes as well, tons of grapefruit. T: wow! that is a lot stronger than I expected. huge alcohol flavors in this. It kinda of takes way from the malts, but I think thats the point here. It literally taste like juice made from hops. I get some of the malts but so much pine and grapefruit in here that it burns. M: Thick, bitter, and very dry. good carbonation. strong bite. D: its a little rough. almost 10% and a complete hop beer. it tastes like someone forgot some malts, but that seems to have been the purpose of this beer. as a hophead, i loved it, but it is a little too much.

Maxbier (637) - Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Golden with white head. Sweet tropical fruit hop aroma. Boozy fruity up front, then a bitter hop slightly medicinal finish. Not like any other DIPA I've had. Hop juice is a good name, tastes a bit like I imagine it would faster if you put some fresh hops through a juicer and added alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a nice reddish-gold with respectable foamy head. Aroma is all over the place pungent hops. Being a bit hod sensitive, it almost makes me nervous to drink. Light, piney taste initially, followed by the mellow finish. Bitterness is everpresent, but doesn’t make it hard it drink. It’s decent, but I wouldn’t skip other beers to get to it.
