New Belgium Juice Force IPA Beer Review

If there's a positive to be taken from New Belgium's Juice Force, it's that being a bland IPA makes it an extremely drinkable 9.5% ABV. If you are hesitant to try a stronger IPA, this one might be good to try out. For me though, it's going to be a pass.

Happy Drinking!
