Tap Handle #261: Left Coast - Hop Juice

This was part of a group tap purchase, and I wasn't sure whether to keep it due to its simple design and "toy on a stick" look, but the price was so good I decided to add it to the collection.

Hop Juice is a double IPA monster that uses Premium American 2-Row and a touch of light crystal malt to create a solid malt foundation. Five different hop varieties are used; it spends two weeks dry hopping in the fermenter, contributing to its great hop aroma. The finished brew starts out sweet and finishes with the crisp bitterness of a double IPA. This drinkable blend will have you HOPPING till nights end. Hop Juice won a gold medal at the 2015 Las Vegas International Beer Competition, a bronze medal at the 2013 LA County Fair, a silver medal at the 2004 California State Fair, and a bronze medal at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival.
