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.

22 oz bomber. Pours to a slightly hazy orange color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is fragrant with zesty citrus and piney hop aromas. The palate is firm, with good pale, and caramel malts, paired with zesty/tangy hop flavors of grapefruit and lemon. This beer finishes with more good pale and caramel malt sweetness up front, the ends with a zesty piney/citrus hop bite that lingers. Wow. I found this beer to be an outstanding example of a double IPA. Tons of hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness, with a good malty base to stand up to the hop assault. This is hop juice, in a very good way. A perfect aperitif beer, and a nice beer to sip and relax with as a hop coctail, after a long hard day at work.

Pours a glowing orange color with a foamy white head that settles fast. The aroma is all hops on this one with the bitter orange and grapefruit hops coming through along with a toasted caramel smell. The flavor is much the same with the bitter citrus and grapefruit hops dominating with some sweet caramel on the back end. The caramel tries to balance things out, but this one is all hop bitterness. Medium bodied and almost sticky mouthfeel from all the pine resin with a long, really bitter finish. This is one of the hoppier DIPA’s that I have had. Pretty solid, but nothing crazy by any means.

Courtesy juiceisloose. Pours a very lightly hazy, glowing orange amber color. A foamy, off-white head settles quickly, leaving sudsy micro-spot lacing behind. Aromas include a buttery toffee malt base, with bitter orange and grapefruit hops showing alongside a strange, lightly soapy note. Flavors again showcased citrus hops up front, with the toffee intensifying in sweetness on the back end. Medium, slightly sticky body. Pretty straightforward and simple, but lacking in integration. Decent beer.

Bottle: Golden copper with a smaller sandy head. Nose is citrusy sweet and floral. Very bright and crisp. Malty and resinlike flavors up front with a lot of floral and citrus hops. Clean, dry finish. Mmmmm, dry hopped! Thanks Sparky77

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Clear copper pour, medium white head. Aroma is pineapple, citrus and sweet malts. Flavor is full blown hop juice, citrusy hops and a big melon taste to it dominate but there is a nice floral background, sweet caramel is very much there. Resiny aftertaste, very dry mouthfeel, medium mouthfeel. Fresh, bitter but not heavily and just tasty.

Bottle @ ORL throwdown, courtesy of juiceisloose. Golden with a thin rim of white round the edge of the bottle. Huge citrus pine hops on the nose. Very sweet malts, more citrus hops, and quite bitter. This is almost cloying, just too sweet and monotone.

Big ups to Fordest for this one. Poured a clear deep orange with a decent off white head. This one features a caramel and sugary sweetness. Only negative is that I go for more hops and less sugary sweetness in my doubles but this was enjoyable either way.

BOLTZ7555 (2960) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2008
Aggressive...thick, syrupy brew that generates a 1/2 inch eggshell head that quickly turns into a ring floating atop the brew. Golden brew with hints of crimson at its deepest depths. The aroma is pungent hops...citrus and honey. Tastes somewhat like you would expect...grapefruit, sweet malt, and resin. Everything is to the n’th degree...but misses the balance needed to take it to the next level.

Semi clear orange red amber with a nice ivory white head that doesn’t last too long. Flavor is creamy hops and warmth. Smell is some floral hops with some dough in there too. Not great. Flavor is a hint metallic and not super balanced. Just a touch more metal and alcohol than I wanted

Courtesy juiceisloose. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Very earthy, spicy hop aroma. Taste is spicy dry grapefruit hops, just delicious.
