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.

jgb9348 (5612) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Clearish golden coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of super fresh hops, grapefruit, pine and earth - super strong with a lot of residual sugars and alcohol noticeable as well. Full-bodied; Strong hop flavours at first that literally taste like a hop juice with all the sugars noticeable. Aftertaste shows more well-rounded flavours with earth, pine, grass, hay and malt with the sugars and the hops. Overall, a very nice and hop/sugar-centric beer with a good finish and complexity at the end, full of alcohol as well. Nice to sample even West of the Left Coast! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Malama Market in Haleiwa, O’ahu, Hawaii on 21-August-2016 for US$7,88 sampled a day later in my hotel room in Waikiki, O’ahu, Hawaii on 22-August-2016.

teamsale (156) - 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 I’ve had. Perfectly balanced. A little copper taste in the aftertaste is the only knock I have on this one.

MarcoDL (3980) - 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 (927) - 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.
