3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours hazy deep orange with a small white head. Aroma is strong citrus and sweet caramel.Taste is overall sweet, almost cloying, medium bodied, bordering to watery. Could wish for some more hop bitterness here. Light bitter/sweet finish, harsh.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: Pours amber ale with two fingers of faded caramel foam which slowly falls to a quilt of the same. Ringed sheets of lacing. Good looker.
S: Tangerines, pine, a bit of floral character (soapy). Some distantly sweet malts in the back.
T: Hmm, was this done with belgian yeast?! Has a yeasty, coriander like flavor I often associate with tripels. Otherwise, quite bitter with creamy sweetness off the malt/weird flavor. Some peppery sage like flavors. Not really digging this as a DIPA
M: Medium on heavy body for the style. Moderately smooth and lifeless carbonation.
O: Really surprised by this beer, with a name like hop juice, I thought this would be a little more complex. Huh, guess I got sold. Not a very good beer.
Serving type: bottle

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber-orange with a small, off-white head.
Orange malt aroma.
Taste is sweet, orange, citrus, a little pine.
Heavier resin notes at finish.
Not bad at all, but pretty mild for a double.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a hazy copper color with a decent off white head. The nose is mostly citrusy hops. The flavor has a sweet maltiness up front. Lighter pine and citrus in the back. Missing any kind of big hop punch. Seems like just a pale ale to me, with double the alcohol mind you.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Great appearance, no balance, bland taste, so-so aroma of hops. Tastes of caramel, overwhelming. Would not recommend.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Seems very hot for some odd reason. Does start sweet and finishes pungent. Not crisp. Something off. Maybe old
