3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a very pale orange, with a slight head that has decent lacing. It has a very strong vanilla and honey smell, not a bad thing. Not very hoppy, but still fulfills my hop jones. The finish could be cleaner, I am getting a lingering sweet hop taste. Overall I am enjoying this beer and will try it again.

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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 Hendrix’s 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.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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?!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 2IPA’s. A bit of rubber in the aftertaste. Solid west coast 2IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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. I’ll be sipping in Hop and Juice for awhile. Laid back.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Incredible hop aroma and taste perfectly balanced with sweet malts. The mix of the two makes the name Hop Juice quite appropriate.
