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 2Ė 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.

piscator34 (2298) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - APR 27, 2013
Draft sample. Hazy orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of caramel, mandarin oranges, and latex paint. Flavors are more of the same sweet caramel, sweet orange and paint, along with notes or white pepper, booze, and grassy bitterness. Something is not quite right here.

teamsale (135) - Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head and mild lacing. Smells of berries, copper, fruit. Tastes like a hundred flavors, really really flavorful, one of the best tasting Iíve had. Perfectly balanced. A little copper taste in the aftertaste is the only knock I have on this one.

MarcoDL (3876) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2016
Bottle. Golden copper color. Aroma of caramel, mild pine and resinous hop. Soft taste of bitter caramelised malt, pine, herbs, some grapefruit and a very bitter finish. Allright.

fkoolen (901) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 Bottle at home. Almost clear golden colour, offwhite firm creamy head. Big spruce, resinous pine, grassy, herbal, grapefruit, sweet malty backbone, crisp and beautifully building bitterness. Lingering spruce, pine aftertaste. Big body, low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Maybe a tat too sweet, but a very decent DIPA.

adasko (1772) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Left coast hop juice very hazy orange color. Tiny, frothy head. Sweet, very malty forward aroma but it also gives some hopy notes in the back, notes of super matured mango and pineapple. Exactly same thing in taste. Would say itís classic, already classic imperial IPA. Sweet and hoppy. Missed that. Might be much more bitter though. But on the other hand further you go with the glass, more bitter it feels. Really good. And the way alcohol is hidden - masterpiece.

16oz pour in The Signature Sports Bar, Laguna Niguel on 12th May 2016. Cloudy orange/amber body, white head. Hoppy and fruity with a mini-citrus feel and bittering finish. Liked it.
