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.

The warm alcohol finish tends to blow any subtleties out of the water, but this was a very enjoyable pint of goodness.

Drank at Jasmines in Costa Mesa. Amber pour from bottle with moderate white head. Slightly sweet with a clean bitter finish. Not too shabby ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Flavorful and rich. Nice malt notes that overpowered a bit the hoppiness that I expect in an IPA, but balanced overall. I would definitely give it another try... time and again

12oz bottle shared, pours deep orange with white head. Huge hop nose you name its in there. Citrus and pine and grassy. Medium bodied and not cloying like some can be. Very nice hop flavor blended well and not overly bitter. Has some caramel tones in there.

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!

GenDV138 (5978) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 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.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Draft at Stuffed Sandwich.Copper colored brew with a thick off white head. Hop juice is an appropriate name. Aroma and flavor is just tongue numbing hop assault. Good balance between the grapefruity and piney hops. But there is no real maltiness noticeable. If your an absolute hop fiend this ones for you.

billk (353) - Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2005
Tap @ O’Brien’s. Clear golden color. Flavor was semi sweet and apple/grapefruit tasting. Hoppy as hell, alcohol was noticable. This was one of the many I had that night and one of my lesser liked.

On tap at Carmel Country Road. This batch was 7.99% listed. Orange with minimal lace. Strong with heavy malt, good mouthfeel. Every hop they can find and put together here, cascade, warrior, amerillo, etc. etc. And dry-hopping.

Hand Bottle from growler. Big thanks to cbkschubert for sending me this one. Pours a cloudy orange body with nice head. Aroma is of citrus, tropical hops, big maltiness. Flavor is very hoppy, heavy citrus - grapefruit tones, big sweet malty backbone. Nicely done but the syrupy hoppness may be a bit overdone for me.
