Pours hazy, orange-yellow in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is orange juice, grapefruit rind, and pale malt. Bitter, medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Makes for a slightly citrusy and above average pale ale. Was expecting way more juice given the name. Not bad, just one I will most likely not rush out to get again.

From a 16oz can, dated 06/23/17. Served in a 21oz pub glass.

Pours a mildly cloudy, pale straw yellow with some super-fine carbonation and a three-plus finger head of soft and pouffy suds. Retention is excellent leaving a big floating island of shaving cream and fat gobs of sticky lacing. Looks great.

Fairly faint nose of clean maltiness, soft yeastiness and fruity hops.

Tastes of soda crackers, lemon rind, creamsicle and kiwi, dead-neutral between sweet and bitter. A little pine and grapefruit pith creeps in near the finish, slightly resinous, ending with some sticky hop oils tingling on the tongue.

Feel is clean and bright, a hair thinner than medium bodied with fine, prickly carbonation.

Overall, a very-most excellent, tasty beverage! Not super complicated but an honest, simple joy to drink. I'll pick up a four-pack every chance I get.

Had this on 2017-06-27 in Marietta, PA at Shank's Tavern, on-tap

A - Pale orange with a 1.5-finger white head an moderate lace

S - Oranges! Also some biscuit and light floral.

T - Tastes like someone poured a couple shots of navel orange juice into a pint of American Pale Ale. After the initial orange rush, it tastes more like a balanced Pale Ale without an emphasis on bitterness, big malt body or hop flavors. In this sense, it doesn't take remarkable its strength is its easy drinkability.

M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Not overly dry; yet refreshing.

O - Had this at the end of an 8-mile hike on this beautiful summer day. I understand why it's called The Juice, but the orange aromas and flavors didn't keep this from hitting the spot. I'd have it again.

A bit thin, flavor dissipates on the finish, but that is only disappointing because overall the flavor and aroma are very impressive. Pleasantly surprised

Picked this up on a recent trip to the Mira Mesa Trader Joe’s. A friend of my brother’s loved it on Untappd and I’m hoped I did too. I assumed it was a juicy IPA, but not so sure. Going into it rather blind.

Poured a straw hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of off-white head. A few bubbles coming up along the sides of the glass. Good spotty lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.00)

Smelled a nice mix of hops and fruit from the jump. Specifically got Amarillo for sure, likely Citra and Mosaic, and maybe Centennial and Motueka. Also spoiled fruit, melon, cantaloupe, grapefruit peel, orange creamscicle, tangerine, mango juice and even some lactose. I somehow liked this. (Smell - 4.00)

Tasted about as good. Amarillo, Citra, Mosaic, spicy Simcoe and Centennial for hops. For fruit got a mix of spoiled peach, orange creamscicle, guava, mango, melon, cantaloupe, sharp pungent grapefruit peel, orange blossom, nectarine and candied caramel squares. (Taste - 4.00)

Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Long, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.00)

Much better than I thought it was going to be. For a hazy pale ale, it was pretty good. (Overall - 4.00)

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy rustic orange color with a sly transparency about it. Some messy lacing clings around the sides of the glass nicely. The aroma hits a big piney bitterness flowing over a juicy citrus rind. Grapefruit zest pops the top to kick up a little bit of spice. The flavor grasps a bitter juicy rind-like clingy harsh flavor. That pine comes back to balance nicely (that’s gotta be their house yeast). Sharp bitter piney to remnants of some light juice in the aftertaste leading on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good for what it is. Bitterness feels good and almost close to an AIPA’s harshness on my tongue. Overall, really nice beer from a brewery that I usually don’t go after that much any more.
