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.

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 (2939) - 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.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Courtesy juiceisloose. Pours a clear, dark orange color, with a small white head. Smells very citrusy sweet, with some potent hops and grapefruit to go along with the sweetness. The flavor is big on the hops as expected, with some nice malt charactersto balance it out a bit. Very profound hop bitterness in the finish, almost to the point where it was too much. Still pretty solid IIPA.

Throwdown. Rye bread aroma. Resiny hoppiness, pleasing bitterness. Copper color. Unusual IPA.

Pours a nice semi hazy amber with a lasting light beige head. Smell is fresh, but mild, slightly fruity and citrusy. Taste is a bit astringent and bitter with some citrusy hops too. Nice lasting bitterness and resiny flavor. Average to thin body for the style, but easy drinking. Pretty solid beer.

Thanks to Kingpin,I am on such a roll of fantastic brews. This aroma was like sticking my head into a bag of citus hops,smelled like a creamsicle at first,stunning in its all around great hop fragrance,flavor was a huge wash of bittering hops,with some caramel backing,not that theres anything wrong with that, but a little more mix of flavoring hops would have put this closer to the top still a wonderful hop bomb
