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.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle shared with Jerc, Hogtown Harry, Blankboy, and Mabel, courtesy of Jerc. Mild hop aroma - soapy. Some fruit and malt. Dark yellow, small white head. Huge hop taste - there better be with a name like Hop juice! - tons more in finish. A good DIPA, one dimensional but I really didn’t care - I was in the mood for hops and this delivered.

BOLTZ7555 (2939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Aggressive...thick, syrupy brew that generates a 1/2 inch eggshell head that quickly turns into a ring floating atop the brew. Golden brew with hints of crimson at its deepest depths. The aroma is pungent hops...citrus and honey. Tastes somewhat like you would expect...grapefruit, sweet malt, and resin. Everything is to the n’th degree...but misses the balance needed to take it to the next level.

Aroma lost on me thanks to my sinuses. Taste is a mix of citrusy, then slightly piney hops with malt and alcohol sweetness sharing the taste about 50/50 with the hops. Very drinkable, so the ABV will sneak up on you. Good DIPA, a bit malty sweet for my taste.

jmagnus87 (2888) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2013
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark orange with almost no head. Aroma of caramel and butterscotch with some resinous pine and citrus. Taste is light bitter and medium sweet. Caramel and butterscotch with pine and citrus. Full bodied with a thick texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Good, but a little off. Something just doesnt sit right. Maybe a not so fresh bottle?

Sathorael (153) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Pours a medium amber / mahogany with tall off white head and decent lacing. Aromas of toffee, a little caramel, biscuit, pine, grass cutting, and a slightly vegetal hop character. Taste starts as rich toffee and subtle biscuit and moves into a bright piney hop character with subtle hints of lawnmower trimmings and a bit of woodiness. Finish has a slight alcohol warming with a medium bitter acidity. Hops seem to combat with the malts and alcohol a bit. I would have probably gone with different hop line up.

Habanero (3081) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2014
Bottled. Pours slightly hazy golden with a medium sized, lacing off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and nice bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice DIPA.
Earlier Rating: 10/21/2011 Total Score: 3.7
Bottled. Pours hazy and pale amber with a huge off-white head leaving a nice lace on the glass. Nose with citrus, tropical fruits, floral elements and caramel notes. Sweet flavor of citrus, orange, excotic fruits, pine + caramel and spicy notes. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. More dry and markedly bitter finish. A real hops bomb.
