probably not many people on here have had this beer but it is from Left Coast Brewing Co. and called hop juice. it comes in at 9.4 ABV and the name pretty much says it all.

I've had this beer fresh from Oggi's (left coast brewing is oggi's "brewing division" but the Oggi's I go to brews right at the restaurant). so unless you are in San Diego you probably have not had this beer but it is [email protected] good if you ask me.

it's very over to top hoppiness. the first time I tried it I was sort of on the fence about it but gave it another try and won't look back. especially at $5 a 22 for a 9.4ABV hop monster.

if you get a chance check it out.
That's what Jamil said.

A pretty decent beer. I am thinking I like a lot of other IIPAs a lot more, but I wouldn't kick it out of bed.

In my opinion, the Scottish that Oggi's makes is the best they've got.

I'd agree, OK, but not their best.

4th'd. Just another over-the-top hop & crystal brew. Meh. Boring, uninspired and been done to death. It's like your 5th or 6th batch when you think "If a little is good, A LOT must be better!"
