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.

Bright copper, good lacing. Spicy mango and tropical fruit, bright. Well balanced malt lends to a sweet, fruity hop profile. Full bodied and dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1360) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Clear copper with a two-finger eggshell head and very nice lace. Aromas of tropical fruit - mango and pineapple - accompanied by pine and grapefruit with a touch of caramel. Bright mango and pine flavors rise above a solid caramel malt base. Medium to full bodied, mild carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and a well-balanced finish.

Scopey (7849) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours hazy amber with yellow-white. The nose is pine, varnish, toffee, candied orange peel, mango, apricot and sherbet. The taste is bitter, pine needles, varnish, peppery grapefruit, toffee notes, warming alcohol sting and toasty with a dry, bitter finish. Medium + body and average carbonation. Pretty easy going for what it is. Perhaps a touch sweet, but solid anyhow.
