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.

stobbe74 (3790) - DENMARK - FEB 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is hops, malt with some sweetness. The flavor is mainly hops with some malt. The palate is bitter. Overall a good beer with good balance.

A heartless mash of hops, hops and more hops. This double IPA hammers down lots of bitterness and, like many of its contemporaries, provides a floral aroma with the bite of smelling salt. Hop Juice’s flavor isn’t quite as exagerrated as it professes to be on the bottle, but it is, above all else, an acceptable brew. The mouthfeel isn’t as velvety as I’d expect from the ingredients, and the complexity is stunted in comparison to other, more drinkable, double IPAs. This one is just alright.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2010
From notes. A big, bad hop bomb that is real easy to drink. Juicy, resinous, citrus, spicy florals, subtle soap. Mild pale malt sweetness and very subtle hint of toast. Medium/full body, balanced, a bit resiny. Solid.

deyholla (12289) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2010
Sampled at the January ’10 Metro Detroit tasting. Thanks to whoever brought this! Poured a clear light orange with a yellow tint and minimal head. Aroma was full of hops, both pine and citrus notes present. Flavor began with citrus hops, then transitioned in to a nice pine finish.

hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle… Clear, deep yellow ale with a small, fat-bubbled, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is a fruity swirl of grapefruit, apricot, peach, guava and a sprig of pine. Full-bodied and creamy with spent carbonation. The flavor offers nice malts – honey and toffee. The hops seem more aromatic than bitter. Finishes bittersweet and nearly balanced – a little more sweet than bitter. Bottle courtesy of mashmaster!

Aroma of hops, honey and fresh cut granny smith apples, more hops. Tastes delicious. Flavor of hops and it lingers on the back of the tongue and throat with some herbal notes. Finishes with a slight alcohol burn

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Pours a clear orange with white head. Lovely aroma of sweet malts and crrrrazy hops. resiny citrus hops with hints of grapefruit. Similar taste, very hop bitter finish. Great balance, bitter finish, alcohol well masked, all the traits of a great DIPA.
