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.

Aromas are hops, honey and malt. A nice balance with some complexity. Color is a fairly deep Amber with a modest off-white head. Taste is a combination of a fairly pronounced sweetness and a good hop bitterness. Full bodied with a long pleasant bitter finish. Overall a very good beer. Some complexity with sweet and bitter components and a real ale-like character.

Something of a caramel malt bomb with some extra bitter piney hops as an afterthought. I suspect that this bottle is less than fresh, but hey you want me to favorably rate fresh stuff? Then date yer damn bottles.

jmgreenuk (5804) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - FEB 1, 2015
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a frothy white head and some broken lace. The aroma is big woody citrus fruit hop. The flavour is strong bitter with a resin woody alcoholic hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

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.
