COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brazenly hop-forward beast of a beer, with a huge passionfruit nose. A subtle caramel character provides a malt backbone to shoulder the massive amount of dry-hopping that gives this beer its unique aroma and hop flavor. Two 5 Left is the runway that sends planes screaming right over El Segundo. We always knew we would name a beer after this local landmark and when it came to naming our first Double IPA, it fit the bill perfectly.

mcberko (5368) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from Neillago (thanks a lot, Neil), pours a hazy golden orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out loads of resinous hops, pine, and some dry caramel malt. Flavour is uber dry ad hoppy, with loads of dry pine, floral hops, and just enough crackery malt to back. Super dry and refreshing, with a lingering hoppy astringency. Bitter and dry, just how I love my IIPAs. Excellent.

A slightly hazy amber appearance. Piny earthy, grapefruit rind scents. Deliciously balanced hoppy but smooth. IPA flavor pleasantly stains your mouth.

markwise (4310) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle courtesy of DarthKostritzer. Cheers, Cory! Pours a pretty hazy copper color with an off-white head. Nose is nice caramel backbone to a guava, passionfruit, blood orange, apricot, kumquat, and pluot beer. Flavor is very assertive with guava, papaya, passion fruit up front followed by some nice caramel leading into mildly bitter finish. Medium in body and awesome overall.

jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Bottle. Clear amber body. Fizzy, off-white head. Resin hop aroma along with caramel, raw grain, pine, orange. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, soft carbonation. A bit too much of the leafy hops and resin. But the balance is good for a double ipa. Thanks wnoble.

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Tasted on tap at the 13th Bistro Double IPA Festival on 2/9/2013. This double India Pale Ale pours a medium orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, orange and citrus. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and floral, with oranges. A touch on the fruity sweet side, but lots of hops. Decent carbonation. Medium bitterness. Lots of citrusy fruitiness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
