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.

Bottle from Bob, dark orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma of piney hops, some citrus and caramel hops. Taste is some grapefruit, piney bitterness, bit of a hot finish, not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The warm alcohol finish tends to blow any subtleties out of the water, but this was a very enjoyable pint of goodness.

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

Pours a merkey copper orange color with a thick frothy soapy head. Aroma is mild piney hops with a Sweet chocolate malt. Taste follows the Aroma well. Very some but very good ipa. More on the malty side then I was expecting. Yum!

GenDV138 (6429) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
From notes, consumed on 6/9/13. Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy gold/honey orange with a finger of off-white head. Slow to moderate head fading with decent retention and light lacing. Aromas of toast, biscuit/bread, grapefruit citrus, tropical fruit, light pine. Tasting notes of toasted malt, bitter grapefruit, light pine, biscuit/bread, big hops. Malty mouthfeel with a medium body and semi-dry finish. Alcohol is pretty noticeable.

herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - AUG 14, 2004
Draft at Stuffed Sandwich.Copper colored brew with a thick off white head. Hop juice is an appropriate name. Aroma and flavor is just tongue numbing hop assault. Good balance between the grapefruity and piney hops. But there is no real maltiness noticeable. If your an absolute hop fiend this ones for you.

Tap @ OBriens. Clear golden color. Flavor was semi sweet and apple/grapefruit tasting. Hoppy as hell, alcohol was noticable. This was one of the many I had that night and one of my lesser liked.
