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.

fly (1394) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - OCT 3, 2005
I believe this to be the beer that I had at Falling Rock from outside event. Great start to the evening, delightful beer to sip and one that stands up to drinking after GABF and large, loud crowds.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2005
GABF 2005. Bright golden body with a thinly persisting white head. Sylvan hoppy aroma with lots of pine plus nectarine, mild cattiness and subtle pale malt. Tons of hops in the flavor but comes across a little hot with some fusel notes, but not so much that they sink the ship. Long, lingering bitterness. Good.

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
golden pour large well laced white head. Floral hop w/ a lighter grapefruit and some light malt very well hidden in the scent. Full creamy palate light carb and a nice oily feel. Sweet bitter light carmel very floral and citrus. Another amazing beer.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 27, 2005
Very nice Imperial. Pours a dark bronze with a slight head. Aroma is hops, pine tar, and perfume. Taste is very smooth, but with a strong hop flavor. Citrus-sweet finish.

maxbeer (118) - ITALY - SEP 15, 2005
(bottle, Great US Beer Tasting in Genoa) Hoppy and almost herbaceous aroma, in the mouth the hops are enormous but also quite smooth, the intense bitterness becomes fruity and even almost sweet.

marcus (6011) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 2, 2005
This amber ale is about as flavorful as a beer can be. Very malty and hoppy, yet balanced and creamy. The alcohol is not real noticeable, but it hits you toward the bottom of the glass. This is a great brew.

zug4abby (287) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 1, 2005
This beer is one of my favorites (although i do love hops, so its not big surprise at all). The flavor is hoppy and piney with hints of fruits (grapefruit) in the undertone and aroma. It has a nice golden/orangish color and goes down very easy.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2005
On tap at the Boogaloo Cafe in Hermosa Beach. Gold-orange in color with a short thick head. Big fruity hop aroma, nectarines and tropical fruits. Syrupy and slick mouthfeel. One of the sweetest flavors I’ve had in this style and it’s all about the hops. Fruity and sweet flavor, peach syrup comes to mind. Scattered lacing inside the glass. Overall a delicious brew in which its name suits its well.

Lucky Baldwin’s IPA Fest 2005

Pale clouded orangey amber appearance. Perfumey, tropical fruit and citrus aroma. Fruity palate, very yeasty, mild biscuitiness, good strong bitter biting finish.
