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 2Ė 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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange-copper color with not much of an off-white that disappears as soon as itís poured. Got a lot of caramel/candy aroma with almost no hop presence. Taste is the same, just a sticky flavor of caramel and burnt caramel. Finish is more of the same. From all of the reviews, I expected better. I may have to try this one again.

Pours gold into a snifter. White head with medium retention. Mild caramel aromas. Medium bodied with sweet toffee and bread front to back. Little to no hop presence. Tastes old and stale.

Undated bottle poured into a glass. Smell is mostly sweetness and malt; no dry hop aroma left. Clear amber color. Taste is a nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. The taste starts sweeter, and that sweetness gives way to a clean, lasting bitter finish. I like that a lot and also like the balance between sweetness and bitterness, but would like to try it fresh on tap.

Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with two fingers of eggshell foam. Nose is oxidized with some cardboard, citrus jello, round caramel malt and some stale grass. Palate follows with just underwhelming hop profile that taste old and stale... no date on bottle offered but Maine just received our first shipment of beer from this brewery and personally it taste like a state couldnít sell it so they sent their stale bottles to us !

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy deep orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, caramel, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity and solid balance of citrus/pine hops and dark malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, pineapple, citrus peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, pineapple, orange peel, floral, grass, caramel, honey, bread, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Good complexity of citrus/pine hops with balanced dark malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, fairly creamy, and lightly slick/sticky mouthfeel that is ok. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fairly solid DIPA. Well balanced citrus/pine hops and dark/bready malt flavors; and quite smooth to sip on for the big ABV. I felt this was far too malty for the style, but fairly enjoyable overall.

Love the citrusy aroma! Definitely a more floral & fruity taste. Pretty easy going down for nearly 10%. Iím a fan!

Bottle - A real cloudy orange color, no head to speak of. Malty sweetness on the nose. Real dry hop flavor, with a slight taste of alcohol. While you can smell the malt, canít taste any of it.

ElCapitan22 (179) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy gold color with decent lacing. Tastes of malt and hops, just like a solid DIPA should. Nice bitter and citrus notes provide a nice drinkable beer.

Smells of hop flowers and spruce with a hint of something sweet. The taste is initially sweet but then the overpowering lemon pith coats your entire mouth. Lots of aspirin. Celery. Good but just too much for me to really enjoy the beer.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear copper with two fingers of off white head. Aroma is pine with some lemony citrus. Somewhat malty and caramel in flavor also. Alcohol is evident. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
