COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At Left Coast Brewing Co. we pride ourselves on being one of the pioneers of Double IPA style craft beer. This hop monster uses Premium American 2– Row and a touch of light crystal malt to create a solid malt foundation. Five different Hop Varieties are used in the Hop Juice. It spends two weeks dry hopping in fermenter contributing to its great hop aroma. Starts out sweet and finishes with the crisp bitterness of a Double IPA. This drinkable blend will have you HOPPING till nights end.

Clear, dark amber pour with a thin off white head. Sweet caramel, crystal and brown sugar malt, citrus and berry fruit hops, some pine. Medium body, kinda syrupy, but off dry. Decent.

Wayyyyyyy more malt then what I was expecting. Like the bottle I got was just dominated by a brown sugar sweet malt. So much sweetness and I got hardly any hoppiness which is what I was looking forward to. I am actually kind of disappointed I was thinking this was going to be a super hop forward beer and unless I got a bad bottle it’s just sweet maltiness and hardly any hops.

Pours deep amber with a small head. Aroma of resinous hops along with spicy notes, a little booze and a massive clean malt note. Malty flavours but a load of resinous hops with some pine too. A little soft booze and some herbal hops later on. Nice moderate carbonation.

An okay imperial IPA. Needs a little bit more malt character to balance out the assertive hopping. Pine with hints of citrus. Lingering astringency.

Very smooth IPA. Start with a malty sweetness that has a pleasing bitterness in the finish. Dark and cloudy color with a wispy line of white around the rim. The hop taste builds a little more with each sip, but doesn’t over power its solid malt base.

Bomber from bevmo. Copper/Orange appearance. Not much head. Very hoppy on the nose, some pine. Grassy citrus on the mouth, some alcohol on the aftertaste.

Bottle poured nice aroma flora sweet and strong. Nice hazy Orange color with decent foam head. Taste of grapefruit, pine has a nice bite. Along with earthy malty undertones. A nice balance of sweetness citrus in the beginning with some bitterness on the finish. Definitely notice the 9.7%. Would certainly drink again.

ALLOVATE (2539) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2014
At just on cool and into a snifter. Appears still, misty and headless bar a ring upon the meniscus where it yields great legs when the glass is swirled. Mineral-like, salted pretzels, fresh kelp, tree sap, eucalypt, pine needles, burnt toast and honey make up most of the interesting if not slightly askew nose. Resinous, super oily in the tail and sticky upon the palate. Quite sweet yet boozy and liqueurish but hindered by some heavily weedy hopping. Similar to the nose there is strong notes of kelp, burnt toast, tree sap, gum and eucalypt with a touch of rubber. Residually weedy with a dusty dirtiness. This one wasn’t too pleasant at all. Heated and unbalanced. (12fl.Oz, no date stamp [fresh batch], The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Bottle, Freo doctor bottle shop, no BB date Probably pretty old, but $30 foo a 4 pack of "supposedly fresh" IIPA is a great deal here, pretty nice , but I would assume it would have had a much bigger hop flavour and aroma hit before shipping.
