Meets the style, a good hop delivery and lots of caramel and malt backbone. Northwest by Northwest, would like something more complex. It was still enjoyable and very drinkable. Alcohol was well hidden. Above average mouthfeel, resiny. Lasting half inch of whitehead on golden body. Hop aromas. Beverage Warehouse.

Remove the name "Hop Juice," call it something else to change expectations and you may get "straight A's!"

Pours a dark copper with a nice white head. This is a double IPA but the nose is pure sweet chocolate! Actually smells like a melted chocolate bar and nothing else. (Bottle old??)

Mouthfeel is big, creamy and well balanced.

Flavors are big malt, carmel, toffee and sweet chocolate with the bitterness anticipated coming only in the finish.

Finish is bitter grapefruit/bitter espresso bean and with an "end finish," for lack of a better word, of grapefruit oil. Very appealing and drinkable. A big beer with huge flavors and character.

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber in color and has a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are aromas of citrus and pine resin hops and sweetness from the caramel malts in the nose.
T: The taste is fairly similar to the smell and has a moderate amount of bitterness. There are also some notes of brown sugar and fruits in the flavors.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate.
D: The beer is very drinkable and goes down easily; the alcohol content is very well masked.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Good name for this brew; it seems that they just squeezed the malts from the hops and served it straight to me. The beer begins with a copper / amber color and less viscous than expected. A light fluffy head caps the pint glass and the carbonation inviting. Aromas that emmit from the pour are extremely citrusy, perfumy, floral, and pine-ey. A sweet malt character rounds out the beer, but cannot gain any dominance. Flavors of sweet caramel malts are quickly overtaken by a rich hop bittering, resins, pine, orange peel, lemons, apples, and mint. Though the flavors remain strong, the body stays constent with a medium thickness that allows for a crisp, clean drink. Kinda has a snap in the finish, with only a linger of the hop flavors, bittering, and dryness. The alcohols even give way to the hops. The beer has a body much like a very good Standard IPA (Two Hearted?), but with the hop intensity of a Double. Very drinkable and enjoyable brew.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber color with a foamy head that strips some lace on the sides of the glass

Smell: Surprisingly blended between the citrus and pine hops and the caramel malt

Taste: Well-blended from the outset, with both citrus and pine and a big caramel malt bill shining through; after the swallow, the bitterness becomes more prominent but the sweet malt flavors persist and linger on the tip of the tongue for quite some time

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: A darn nice example of the style; could be a bit hoppier but then again, my bottle could be a bit fresher

Bottle purchased as part of a 6 pack at a Whole Paycheck in NYC. Brief impressions below:

Piney flavours join with big bold tropical fruit flavours for a heavy wallop of hops and concomitant bitterness, but the pale malt/caramalt backbone doesn't quite quell the bitterness and bring this brew into balance...and it does have some undisguised alcohol warmth. Fans of cleanly citrusy or oily and resinous hop profiles will find nothing for them in this aggressively hopped bitter brew, but it's not bad by any means. Built for fans of new world tropical fruit-emphatic imperial IPAs, offering nothing in terms of classic floral, citrusy, resinous, or (non-tropical) fruit hops.

Chalk it up to personal preference, but this one doesn't offer much to my tastes. The mouthfeel is fine - your usual slightly overcarbonated, aptly medium-bodied, smooth, wet texture - but not special. Depth of flavour is limited, as is flavour duration. Flavour intensity is moderately high.

It's drinkable fare and I'll enjoy the six pack I bought, but I can't see anyone justifying picking this up over better priced and higher quality expressions of the style from the likes of Lagunitas, Deschutes, Victory, et al....let alone slightly higher priced style paragons from breweries like Ballast Point, Alpine, Bell's, and the like. Pretty unremarkable overall, but I'm glad I tried it once.

Just released yesterday at Two Brothers, For the Love of Hops fest.

Had a taste of it on tap there, but this bottle seems to be more alive with the fresh hop character. Poured into a 22 oz. Spaten glass. Deep toasted caramel orange body, drippy lace clinging all around to the sides. Good resiny hop aroma, smells like a Simcoe hop cone, a touch of sweet malt and light whiff of alcohol.

Smooth, easygoing DIPA, plenty of fruity/resiny/bitter flavors, some peach, grapefruit and pine. Moderate to full body with a viscous, syrupy impression that finishes fairly dry. At almost 10% this really packs a punch, so take it easy!

22 ounce bottle into tulip, 2011 bottle. Pours slightly hazy reddish orange color with a dense 2 finger light khaki head with great retention that reduces to a fairly thick lacing cap. Some fairly thick lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of huge caramel sweetness, orange, grapefruit, pine resin and a bit of pineapple; with a bit of alcohol. Decent aromas but not what I was hoping for. Taste of big caramel, pine resin, orange, grapefruit, and spiciness. Big amount of bitterness on the finish, as expected, that lingers for a while with citrus, pine, and caramel flavor. Fairly full bodied with medium carbonation; with a slick and sticky mouthfeel. Well balanced with bitterness and sweetness. Alcohol is fairly well hidden for being almost 10%, but the big warming on the finish lets you know it’s there. Definitely a sipping beer, not drinkable at all, but that was expected. Overall, a very nice DIPA to be enjoyed very slowly.

22 oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours a clear light ruby with 2+ fingers of frothy eggshell white foam that formed a beautiful looking 1/2 finger of creamy retention and left some massive sticky lacing and oily residues down the sides of the glass. The aroma is a bit subdued but still pulls out a pleasant mix of pine, tangy smelling citrus notes, with a bit of bready malt sweetness coming through the most. Just a tinge of heat can be detected in the backend.

The taste profile is similar to that of the aroma with a mix of resinous bitterness, fairly prominant citrus character, and caramel sweetness backing things up. It's all very well balanced but much like the aroma, it just doesnt go as full or deep as it seems like it could. For a beer called "Hop Juice" I would expect this to be dripping with flavor but it just didn't. The mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium with a slick and easygoing feel that belies it's almost 10% ABV. There's just maybe a touch of heft to the body that reminds you that your drinking a bigger beer.

My issues aside with the aroma and taste, this is still one unbelievably drinkable DIPA that provides "enough" of a hop fix for those that crave it. I'm pretty certain that this bottle was from the latest release but I would be more than welcome to revisit this again during the next to make sure that it's issues don't have to do with freshness.

Poured from a 22oz. bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep amber color with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The smell is hops, hops and more hops with a little citrus and malt mixed in.

T: Heavy hops blast coupled with a citrus malt sweetness. I’d say that this is one of the strongest hops flavors with the least bitterness that I’ve ever had. Very-well balanced! The hops stick around in a strong after-taste that contains a bit more bitterness, which is quite welcome.

M: Very crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, leaves a little bit of a sticky feel afterward.

D: The speed with which I polished off this bomber is testament to haw drinkable this beer is. The fact that it has a 9.90% ABV may make me pay later for drinking it that fast but it will be worth it. I first tried this beer at a tasting and decided to give it a full-bottle chance. The rep that was pouring at the tasting mentioned something about this beer having a “cult following” in this area. If that’s the case I’d gladly be part of that cult. This is a flat-out excellent beer.

Dusky rustic orange containing a blizzard of fine yeast. Or are those hop flecks? Since they aren't uniform in size, I'll go with hops. The orangish beige head is on the small side, barely two fingers after a vigorous pour, but looks like it'll be around for the long haul. Bubbles of all sizes are piled higgledy-piggledy on top of one another. A carpet of thick lace covers the upper reaches of the glass and will likely do the same farther down. This is a serious looking DIPA.

I like the nose, but I don't love it. There's a modest amount of citrus fruity hops and at least an equal amount of toasted caramel. Unfortunately, the latter interferes with my appreciation and enjoyment of the former. The beer smells like it might have been a humdinger when fresh, but I don't believe the word fresh applies anymore. My loss.

Hop Juice, at this point in time, is what results when one foolishly attempts to age a DIPA. These babies are made to be consumed when the hops are still kickin' up a fuss, not when they've agreed to co-exist peacefully with the malt. In truth, this beer tastes like it had a pretty fair caramel malt load right out of the hopper.

At this stage, the toffee-firm, caramel-creamy malt backbone is the centerpiece. The hops, although still flavorful and decently bitter, are mere accoutrements. As I enter the bottom half of the bomber, I realize that isn't entirely fair. Bittersweet orange peel and white grapefruit zest gain an urgency as the beer warms. Their flavor, and especially their bitterness, gather steam like a runaway locomotive.

The finish is long, caramel drizzled fruity and impressively bitter. Alpha acids appear to have a longer half-life than hop flavor, something I've noticed on more than just this occasion. It's fairly easy to tell that Hop Juice is a high-ABV beer, but it's still pretty mellow considering the fact that it's close to double digits. Age has its advantages it seems.

Big beers deserve big bodies and this one has been given a suitably sized one. It's medium-full (even when keeping style in mind) and has a melted taffy chewy stickiness that I'm enjoying immensely. Thankfully, the carbonation is unobtrusive while still managing to provide enough lift to keep the mouthfeel from becoming too syrupy.

I wish I had had the opportunity to drink Two Brothers Hop Juice Double India Pale Ale when it was young and oozing with hop juiciness. It's still a damn good beer and is well worth a look.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into my Russian River tulip. It poured a dark amber, almost copper color with a thin white spotty head floating on top of the beer. The head didn't last long but it left some nice lacing on the glass as I drank it.

The aroma has a juicy hop presence to it with a lot of citrus and fruity flavors with grapefruit and orange leading the way. Just as bold is the sweet, malty, caramel flavors that come through. Pretty nice mix of flavors in the nose, but I also typically enjoy sweet and hoppy beers.

The taste shows off the caramel and malty sweetness probably even more then the hops. The hops do come through with a juicy and citrusy flavor with a lot of orange and grapefruit and just a hint of pine. It finishes with a a moderate pine bitterness trying to compete with all the malt sweetness.

The mouthfeel is a little above medium bodied with carbonation being a little below average. Drinkability is good, it had a nice mix of flavors to it. The malt plays a much bigger role in it then I expected, but I enjoyed the sweetness it gave it. Is it worthy of the name hop juice? Maybe not compared to some other DIPA's, but personally I really liked the malty and hoppy mix it had.

Pours an effervescent amber a thumb of cream colored head. Sheets of lacing & pretty good head retention

S: Tropical fruit & breadyness, & a little boozeyness, then grapefruit

T: Pineapple & breadyness, some woody hops with a touch of astringency up front. Dryness, pineapple, grapefruit, a little mango & bready sweetness as this warms. Finishes grapefruitty, with a little pineapple& bready sweetness

MF: Medium bodied, fairly restrained carbonation, good balance, warming

A very enjoyable DIPA, this brewery has pleased me very much so far

Poured a very very clear, bright burnt orange amber. A nice about one inch head graced the top from the very beginning, this slowly faded to reveal just a film across the top. No significant side glass lacing on this one. Decent carbonation could be seen rising up from the bottom of the glass. Nice overall look.

Lots of piney citrus likes hops dominated the aroma. But the story was much more complex then that. Lots of balance was present as well. Some good earthy grains and sugar were also present and well represented. Nice balanced smell nothign really blowing you down in either direction. Super smooth with a delicate underlying malt layer. Lots of sweet orange peel and sugar, a hint of some grapefruit. Very nice fresh cut grass flavor as well. Alot more complex then your typical hop bomb. Very well crafted.

Super smooth again, Decent carbonation led to a good mouthfeel. Nothing slick or oily. Nothing watered down either. A good ole fashioned nice sipper. A total sipper as mentioned, although the 9% abv by no means feels that strong, you can tell this was one that you just dont gulp down, for sure. This one went down over more then an hour and every sip was just fantastic.

Overall This was a really good brew. I really like my double IPA and this did not dissapoint.

Ever slight haze to an otherwise clear, solid amber colored brew. Modest head, but it leaves ample ring lace after each sip.

Sweet, hop smell. First thought was a combination of Grape Kool-Aid and a mild APA. Not really the fresh hop smell of an IPA.

Strong grapefruit hop flavor up front that leads to a peppery finish and long-lasting aftertaste. Solid body with a slight oiliness from the high alcohol. There's a subtle sweetness to the brew, but it is not a sugary taste. The potency is evident in every warming sip.

Thanks to Jeff for sending me a growler fill of this. Shared a couple weekends back at Stone Sour Fest.

A: The pour is a vibrant copper color with a minimal white head forming and some mild carbonation bubbles.

S: The nose is a big burst of piney hops followed by some herbal and grassy notes. The malt is also quite pronounced here, providing quite a bit of caramel sweetness.

T: The flavor is quite bitter, but at the same time has a fair amount of sweetness. Light citrus hop flavors, but plenty of resinous pine. A touch of alcohol comes through at times.

M: The body is medium with a somewhat light carbonation that I'll attribute to the growler.

D: This wasn't the most drinkable DIPA, but it did have some nice flavors to it. Sort of intense in all areas, but doesn't necessarily fit all together throughout the entire glass.

From 09/15/10 notes. Had at a small DC tasting, thanks Jonathan.

a - Pours an amber color with one inch of white head.

s - Smells of citrus hops, fruity malts, sugar,
and alcohol.

t - Tastes of fruity malts, sugar, caramel malts, citrus, alcohol.

m - Light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

d - I thought this beer was ok, but very sweet and not very hoppy. Not my favorite DIPA but not bad; I would give it another shot for sure.

Served in a GameWorks shaker pint glass.

Thanks to taiyed for sharing this bottle!

Funny, when I squeezed my hops with pliers, no such juice came out. Maybe I did it wrong... Anyway, this brew pours a clear amber topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light pine, light fusels, and buttery toffee. Hmm, not quite the hop-bomb I expected to go off in my 'strils... The taste holds the same components, but ups the pine and butter antes, while relegating the fusel into the far background. Still, the hops are barely there, more demure than explosive. The body is a rather light medium, with a light carbonation and a dry-ish finish. Overall, this was pretty disappointing. Our first thought was that it was an old bottle, but many other reviews suggest otherwise. I was promised hops, hops, and more hops, but only received the first installment. The result may not live up to the advertising, but it's not really all that bad, either.

Once again, this site's dictums cause it to trip over its own feet. This used to be called "Hop Juice" but when they changed its name, it also became an annual with each iteration deserving of its own listing. I a) have no idea how to unscrew this mess nor b) do I have any inclination to do so. I am now merely a reviewer and occasional poster where I was once an unpaid and abused BFG. Onward!

From the bottle: "Artisan Bottling"; "We Squeeze To Please"; "Two Brothers is a craft brewery on the outskirts of Chicago that specializes in rare and seldom-brewed beer styles. The two of us - Jason and Jim Ebel - strive to produce the very best beers available anywhere."; "We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!"

This bottle is marked: "Believe In the Swirl 2013" FWIW.

I went with a gentle pour as I was unsure about what "The Swirl" may be referring to, plus it has been in my fridge for an extended period. Although it was initially sans head, an employment of the server's trick created a foamy finger of tawny head with decent retention. Color was a deep coppery-amber (SRM = 4 -5) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had begun to go over to a caramel sweetness, but the minty intensity of the hops was still quite evident. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full with an intense heat followed by a combined one-two blast of caramel sweetness followed closely by an intense minty hoppiness. Holy hops, Batman! Once more, my poor, bruised tongue wondered what I was trying to do to it. The inherent heat in this one had not diminished in the least, despite my inadvertent aging. Jesus! My throat constricted, I choked and gagged and when I recovered, I could not wait to take another deep draught. This was a DIPA for hopheads, especially, and NOT for the faint of heart.

My original, Hop Juice review dtd 02 June 2008 with scores of 3.5; 3.5; 4; 4 and 4 follows:

The pour produced a finger's worth of bone-white head with low retention. The color was a murky orangish-amber. The nose was full of hops, but somewhat muted from the last time that I had this beer. The mouthfeel was medium with a grassy hops flavor on the tongue. The finish was definitely hoppy and very flavorful. I want to revisit this one.

A - Beautiful clear caramel body. Creamy light khaki head has great staying power and fantastic lace.

S - Sweet caramel, touch of raisin, brown bread, hint of pesto.

T - Super malty. Lace of booze supports a woody hop with herbal overtones. Nice cocoa finish.

M - Medium body. The booze brightens the frame.

O - For 100 IBUs there's not quite the hop character I was looking for. The malt sweetness over balances and washes out most of the bitterness.

On draft at The Pony Bar in NYC.

Hop Juice is a clear, light orange color. The head is white and rather small, but leaves a fair amount of lacing behind. The aroma is of candied fruits, hops, citrus and alcohol. The beer is quite sweet, with a bold and intense hop presence. The feel is sweet and sticky, with a lasting aftertaste of hops and subtle alcohol. Recommended.

This beer is everything I love about mid-Western IPA/DIPAs. Pours a beautiful deep copper cear deep hue with a thick full on three fngered head of light beige head with fine even speckled lacing evenly strung with each sip. Aromatics bring out deep pine/citrus tones that really bring out the malt profile and mild alcohl nose going on. The onslaught of grapefruit peels and srpuce tips coming from the hops is unrelenting in the best possible way. It doesn't hit with abrasive bitterness just a delightful hop opus that plays like a fuckin' symphony on the palate. Very balanced between earthy notes subtle alcohol and sweet caramel hop candy notes. I've tasted hop candy made with cascades and this is similar to that experience along with the pine and grapefruit additions. This is a great DIPA I can definitely drink this on the regular I'm glad it's available at my local store. Mouthfeel is medium bodied sticky with hop resins and some residual sugars this brew is excellent even easy going carbonation I'm in love with this stuff. Drinkability is great, a beer that I will track down very soon, maybe even bring to my next Pittsburgh tasting at Fathead's.

Pours a clear amber color with a yellowish stained head. Quite a bit of lacing and minor retension of the head. Nose is a sweet mixture of malt blended with both pine and citrus hops. Medium feel and low to medium level of carbonation. Nice lasting hop bitterness is left on the tongue with residual sweetness to counter act. Deep whiffs and sips as the beer warms shows off more alcohol notes in both the aroma and taste with a bit more hop spice.

Thank you sir...can I have another....hic...hic...thank you sir can I have another....hic....hic! This is what I would sound like if trying to perform a session with 2Bros HOP JUICE!!!! 9.9% would make happy...then inebriated....then HUNG THE F OVER!!! Basically....this beer has great balance of hop and malt to balance the 9.9% ABV! But that is also the trouble...if you can't taste it....it will hurt you hard!! The color is a clear amber with white head and decent lacing. The smell is a mmix of citrus, hop, and ...ahhh yeah...booze! The taste is decent even though it is 9.9% ABV...oh did I mention it is 9.9% ABV!!! No way this is a session which lessens its drinkability and mouthfeel....but if on a cold winter's night you want something heavy and hoppy....this is your BEER! Stay thirsty my friends!

Pours a brownish orange. Minimal head. Perfumed nose with mild citrus tones. Flavor is syrup like with hop character, of course. More of a bark like thing going on than anything else. This doesn’t carry the mass of citrus that many other DIPAs do. Feels nice on the mouth, though a bit syrup like and sticky. This is a pretty nice DIPA. Certainly isn’t bringing a huge amount of character, but is smooth and nice to drink.
