From notes, 3/6/10. Bottle, home. Surprisingly good DIPA. This beer pours a medium amber with a smallish white head. The aroma is quite good, a mix of a variety of hop flavors - mostly floral and citric. There’s a touch of caramel malt, but this is clearly a hop ride from the outset. The flavor is pretty much all big chewy hops. I guess it’s dry, but it’s hard to taste much beyond the hops. If that’s not your cup of hop tea, then you won’t like this beer much. There was a definite paint thinner note when the beer was colder, but it fades to further hoppiness as it warmed up. Mouthfeel is a bit rough, but them’s the breaks with hop juice. Super hoppy DIPA.

Bomber to snifter, nice bottle art

Good copper gold with a finger of foam. Good lacing and retention, very little carbonation. Great looking brew. Smells of strong hoppy citrus with a strong malty base and some alcohol. Taste of fruity hops and malty booze. Alcohol undercuts much of the flavors leaving it a bit bland. Feel is again boozy, but drinkable. Overall while it's not exactly terrible, I'm not impressed with this beer. I don't think I'd get it again

Nice. Poured from bottle to a round glass. Very nice copper color, clear in the light. The nose is bread like and a hint of alcohol. The head was creamy…thick when poured and thinned out with some lacing on the glass. The taste was powerful, but not mind blowing. Hoppy, floral notes...herbs and some spiciness and again a taste of alcohol. Very clean, but long lasting mouth feel with a dry finish.

a clean amber pour with 2 fingers of foamy head. citrusy sweet smell, pine, caramel, and grass notes. a sweet malty DIPA with a heavy booze kick. tasty bitterness fights the sugary backbone from the malt and confuses the hell out of my palate. the alcohol taste is VERY strong in this one. medium body with a good amount of carbonation, alcohol warmth is very present. a pretty good DIPA but a bit too strong in the booze flavor and weak in the hop department for something called hop juice!

A half finger of head on a cloudy, deep copper colored body.
The aroma is a sharp lemon, orange and pinewood. It's a nice combination.
The taste has a malty sweetness undercurrent with a dry strong bitterness dominating the profile.
The texture is a little fizzy, moderate carbonation and medium body.
A solid DIPA.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

A- Finger and a half white creamy head. Nice retention. Little lacing. Semi-cloudy copper color.

S- Big, citrusy hops. Not much else.

T- Metallic tang of bitterness. Punch in the taste buds. Balance isn't there.

M- Heavy carbonation and fluffy feel. Dry.

O- Nothing really terrible, but not a good beer.
