Hazy peach-gold with 1-finger foamy off white head with good retention and solid band of lacing.
Aroma is generically fruity and moderate in intensity with some lemon, lime, and grapefruit along with more herbal, earthy notes than I was expecting.
Flavor is a huge upgrade from the aroma with bursting grapefruit, orange, lemon-lime and honeysuckle really blending in a balanced fashion with the light caramel notes on the malt side. A supremely balanced APA - right in the sweet spot.
Feel is also a good balance of oily slickness, slightly tacky maltiness and medium body with low-average carbonation.
Peak has consistently impressed me with their hoppy beers - The Juice is no exception despite the dumb name.

Pours a pretty standard translucent yellow. Smells of lemon and malt. Taste is the same, with some citrus rind and more detailed caramel notes coming through with the malt. Leaves a feeling on the mouth a lot like soda, except I hope I can trust this to not rot my teeth too much! Not bad.

Slightly cloudy, uniform, straw colour with a tall enough white head which fades to a thin bubbly foam rather quickly. Carbonation looked a little over active, but looks pretty good all the same. Aroma definitely tropical citrus, but not too strong; hoppy & fruity. Taste is again tropical citrus with some astringent bitterness up front which lingers throughout the sip. The hops peek through but seem blocked by the bitterness, leaving the taste rather dry. Mouthfeel is neither juicy nor full, and only almost smooth. If I hadn't had 20 better IPAs in the past year, I would say this is pretty good. Instead, I'm saying it was drinkable, but not something I will look for again, and not worth a 4+ where I would score good PAs.

NE style pale ale from a can--at my grocery store. Let's try it!
This pours a straw tan with a pleasant cloudy haze. Looks the part.
I get a big aroma of squeezed orange juice. There's a nice body on this. Drying finish. Orange citrus with some pineapple undertones. Not bad!

A - Poured a very pale straw color, hazy. A slightly too aggressive pour yeilded a large 3 finger head. Very thick and frothy white head, took quite a moment to dissipate. Left no lacing, and only a slight ring of head remained around the edge.

S - Aroma is a little off. I get a nice pungent herbal hop, dank, pine at first then it's followed by a bunch of off aromas including butter and green apple.

T - The flavor is light and crisp, citrusy hops, lemon zest, slight mango as well as grassy, earthy, and floral notes. Not as Juicy as I was expecting for a beer called "The Juice" but more than adequate for an APA. A nice malt backbone accompanies providing a slightly sweet bready flavor. Finish is only slightly bitter, with an English ale yeast character rife with diacetyl and an unappealing green apple flavor.

M - Mouth feel is a little too thick for the style, sticky, and slow drinking, not quaffable or refreshing. Odd for the ABV, I would expect a crisp refreshing brew, but this is slow sipping, forcing me to focus on the off flavors present.

O - Overall I'm not too impressed with this there are many, many more alternatives both local and from abroad that are more enjoyable than this. I think this has potential, but being contract brewed by shipyard they cant escape the house flavor with that buttery diacetyl that you wish wasn't there but keeps presenting its ugly head with every sip. It fits with an English ale, but this juicy APA begs to be brewed with a clean finishing yeast.
