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.

Dogbrick (9661) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2015
This brew pours a slightly hazy copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and toasted malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of piney hops, citrus and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a resiny hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

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.
