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.

Tasted from the tap on the 08/02/2016. This is the kind of juice I like at night! Very hoppy and fruity beer. Finish is medium dry and bitter. Very well balanced hop combination. Next one please!

Bottle. Pours a hop haze orange color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is of fairly hoppy with grapefruit, pine and some caramel and biscuity malty notes. Flavor doesnt have the juicy taste the name indicates, though it is fairly hoppy. I get some grapefruit, orange zest, fresh pine, a tea leave like quality, along with some caramel and biscuity malts. The body is medium with a powdery dry mouthfeel. Overall a pretty solid West Coast DIPA, though I would have liked more bitterness and that fresh hop juice note as the name indicates. But maybe my bottle wasnt too fresh.

Pours a hot orange amber color, frothy white head. Pungent hop aromatics of apricot, peach, and citron. The flavor the whole way through was a palate blasting fruity hop experience. As it warmed, malt notes peeks through occasionally. In the finish, an alcohol heat becomes rather noticable.

Floral hop aromas. Flavor is just a bit too much on the sweet side for my tastes--seems to favor the malt over the hops. There are the usual pine-bitter and citrus flavors at work. Quite a bitter finish overall.

300th rating! Pours a clear golden with long lasting head and great lacing. Aroma is tons of toffee malt with caramel and licorice, slightly dank with dark fruit. Very rich, heavy, syrupy aroma. Not what Im used to in a West Coast DIPA, but enjoyable nonetheless. Taste is sticky sweet up front with a cotton candy vibe, then some hops cut in with a juicy pine that dries out into a good aftertaste. Really dry finish. Overall this is rich and enjoyable, but much different than Im used to for this style.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2008 Bomber. Poured a cloudy orange with a white head. Aroma is very hoppy with a very complex blend of hops. Some pineapple and citrus present. Taste is similar with more big hops, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit. Some caramel also backing this one up nicely. Mouth is sticky and finish is bitter. A very nice IIPA.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle Pours a lightly hazy copper with a good off white head. The head is frothy and lasting. Producing spotty lacing. Has a good aroma of citrus and pine. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is excellent a sharp hit of bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden and this is blended very well. Has a resiny texture. The body is full. Has a wondewrful finish with a great aftertaste. This is one heck of a beer.

Bottle - pours burnt orange with a nice head and good lacing. The aroma was promising but it was just too dry for my taste.
