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.

Pours a clear orange with white head. Lovely aroma of sweet malts and crrrrazy hops. resiny citrus hops with hints of grapefruit. Similar taste, very hop bitter finish. Great balance, bitter finish, alcohol well masked, all the traits of a great DIPA.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
hoppy aroma with licorice. Pours clear golden with thin white head. Eye-watering hops. Overall, this isn’t one of the better doubles that ive had. Alcohol is too prominent and the body is thin. Too unbalanced to get a high rating.

tgncc (3096) - Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2009
Nice, interesting aroma of caramel, peach, light fruit, pine, citrus, leaves, slight booze. The appearance is a hazy orange, white head. The flavor is caramel, fruit, pine needles, resin. Very nice. The mouthfeel is medium, little on the thick side, slick. The finish is pure hops, an astringent, lingering hop burn, mostly resin and some pine. This is a nice beer. Great IIPA, this one really takes th style to the limit.

LinusStick (3237) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2009
A delicious IIPA courtesy of my Secret Santa. Aroma was spectacular. Strong citrus and piney hops that fill the nostrils. Pour was a cloudy orange with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was nice and bitter. Strong bitter hops with a light caramel malt backbone. Very little carbonation which was disappointing but I’ve come to notice that west coast IPAs and IIPAs all have that in common. Nice bitter wet aftertaste that hangs on the tonsils. Very god

Christian (12885) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2009
Golden with a small white head. Aroma is fruity with green grass and vegetable notes, some malt and a whiff of alcohol. Sweet malty flavour with toffee notes, some citrus hops and alcohol. If you wanna call it hop juice I prefer more hops and less sweet alcohol bomb

Dedollewaitor (15546) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle @ J.C.G. Pours unclear orange with a creamy lasting white head and lacings. Freshly hopped nose. Pine, orange and a bit of buiscuit. Smooth and sticky palate. Taste is very hoppy, spruce, juice and pine. Lasting bitterness. A bit boozy. Nice.

alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2009
Nose is pleasant cereal, grainy malt with a touch of resin and fruity sweetness. Flavor is boozy citric sweetness and that’s about it. Tasted almost exactly like Southern Comfort. Really let down, i had good hopes for this one - but the booze overpowered any good structure/flavors it may have had.

BeerandBlues2 (12101) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 27, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 GABF 2009 and again at Oggi’s Point Loma. Pours clear light yellow with a small, fizzy white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, hay, straw, cereal), heavy hop (flowers, grass, pine, resin), average yeast (sweat) with notes of pear, peach, honey, and apricot. Medium bodied, alcoholic texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness. This beer is a bit boozy.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bomber from the original Foodery location in Philly. Pours a hazy bright orange under a dusky white head. Beautiful glow. Strong pine forest aroma with suggestions of grapefruit and white pepper. A lot of citrus in the flavor with some bittersweet chocolate, vanilla and a pretty beefy malt backbone. Rich and silky texture with a snappy finish. Only drawback was that the hop train occasionally tipped a bit off the rails but all in a good West Coast Double.
