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

Draft at El Segundo (Jan 2016). Head is mostly/fully diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel), moderately to heavily hoppy (resin, grapefruit), with strong notes of onion and shallot. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. An onion bomb, easily the worst of the sampler.

Dogbrick (10857) - 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.
