“Juice Machine was originally devised and brewed to support our very first trip to Extreme Beer Festival in 2014. We’ve revived and tweaked the original recipe on a 60 BBL scale and brought new life and experience into the idea of an obscenely hop saturated yet juicy and delicate Double IPA. It is essentially a marriage of the King Julius malt bill with a hopping intensity schedule similar to that of Very Green. The use of Magnum, Columbus, Amarillo, Citra, and Galaxy creates a deeply complex drink with unapologetic flavors of tangerine, mango, lime, papaya, and grapefruit with waves of dankness. Hop burp nirvana, indeed.”

Poured from a 16oz can into a Tree House tulip glass. Purchased at the brewery a couple weeks ago.
Pours an orange-juice color super hazy body with a pretty big foamy white head that reduces slowly to leave lacing and a little retention.
Aromas are quite juicy (hence the name), oranges and grapefruit dominate, citrus and guava, bursting tropical fruit.
On the tongue is big bursting tropical fruit, lots of guava, pineapple, tangerine, watermelon, graperuit, .. all of them. This is so juicy it’s awesome. Very very light bitterness on the finish.. the hops aren’t bitter, just flavorful. Mouthfeel is medium with pretty low carbonation. So juicy like.
Loved this beer, as the name implies this is just a tropical fruit bomb. Nothing bitter about this beer, just juicy.
