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.

shadey (2054) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 16, 2009
22oz bottle. Pours a bright melon orange color with a minimal head of only sparse white lace. Aroma is bitter hopiness, but it does lack a certain citrus-ness that I would have liked. The flavor is also lacking the direct grapefruit flavors of say an Alesmith IPA, but don’t get me wrong... this is quality stuff and I appreciate it. But its second tier.

omhper (22716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2009
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Deep golden, almost no head. Sweaty lychee aroma, Sweet and full bodied with clean mouthfeel. Salty and very hoppy with clean chewy malt, sweaty orange/pomelo. Very poerful and concentrated. Hugely bitter. Huge beer.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Bomber, split three ways. Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma has medinical hops, some citrus, and bubble gum sweetness. Palate is medium-thick, with ample carbonation. Flavor starts with a blast of flavor, a hoppy-caramel-red fruit collage that demonstrates balance, dynamism and complexity. The flavors blended together quite sweet, but like a good sweet lemonade, the flavors worked in harmony without sharpness. The finish was strong and warming, though not alcoholic. Although I do prefer more bitter-hoppy DIPAs, this one at least succeeds in achieving memorable balance.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Poured golden orange with a 1/4 inch white head. Nose was not big on hops, fairly floral. Taste was poop. Tasted like old rotten hops, old lettuce, just flavors were a mess.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle Pours a lightly hazy copper with a good off white head. The head is frothy and lasting. Producing spotty lacing. Has a good aroma of citrus and pine. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is excellent a sharp hit of bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden and this is blended very well. Has a resiny texture. The body is full. Has a wondewrful finish with a great aftertaste. This is one heck of a beer.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2009
The bottle I had listed the ABV as ~9.3 so this beer entry needs an update. The beer itself was classic DIPA material. Golden orange color, great head, and a nice piney citrus aroma. The taste was chewy, resinous, and had great citrus-orange flavors. This was probably the best DIPA I brought back from San Diego and it completely surprised me. If you see this awesome beer, buy it!

650ml bottle at Oliver Twist. The aroma is fantastic! There is a slight oily taste in an unpleaseant way.

hirigalzkar (2753) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2009
Bottle. I really like the sweet caramel and grapefruity smell of this beer. The taste is a little unbalanced due to the lack of malt. Too fucking bitter without finesse...

Lightly hazy gold, white head. Nose is grapefruit, barleywiney malts, some alcohol, hairspray, brown sugar, alcohol laden fruits. Flavor is bitter hops, brown sugar, lots of alcohol/burning cheap vodka. Harsh hop bitterness towards the end with some pith & brown sugar.
