this beer is a little polarizing, isn't it?
i found hop juice at the highway market in ramona, ca. bottles of hoppy california beers, from alesmith ipa to hop stoopid. not a bad selection, and considering i haven't had hop juice in a while, i grabbed one.
the smell is hoppy, but also very malty, you can smell the malty sweetness balancing the hops. i like it, but it's also not a beer i'd go out of my way to find.
taste is a little disappointing - i'd say its better than some ipas out there, but it's not great - and i love great ipas. it's very malty, hoppy at the same time, but lacks a really surprising flavor, it's devoid of the fruity innuendos i seek.
good ipa for tonight, for tomorrow, i'll look elsewhere...
