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.

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.

colemanbeer (5) - Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2014 does not count
Bottle poured nice aroma flora sweet and strong. Nice hazy Orange color with decent foam head. Taste of grapefruit, pine has a nice bite. Along with earthy malty undertones. A nice balance of sweetness citrus in the beginning with some bitterness on the finish. Definitely notice the 9.7%. Would certainly drink again.

ALLOVATE (2475) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2014
At just on cool and into a snifter. Appears still, misty and headless bar a ring upon the meniscus where it yields great legs when the glass is swirled. Mineral-like, salted pretzels, fresh kelp, tree sap, eucalypt, pine needles, burnt toast and honey make up most of the interesting if not slightly askew nose. Resinous, super oily in the tail and sticky upon the palate. Quite sweet yet boozy and liqueurish but hindered by some heavily weedy hopping. Similar to the nose there is strong notes of kelp, burnt toast, tree sap, gum and eucalypt with a touch of rubber. Residually weedy with a dusty dirtiness. This one wasn’t too pleasant at all. Heated and unbalanced. (12fl.Oz, no date stamp [fresh batch], The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

sinkas (288) - Perth/Fremantle, AUSTRALIA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle, Freo doctor bottle shop, no BB date Probably pretty old, but $30 foo a 4 pack of "supposedly fresh" IIPA is a great deal here, pretty nice , but I would assume it would have had a much bigger hop flavour and aroma hit before shipping.

MartinVanBeer (116) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle, may have been a little past it’s best. A lot of malt in the aroma and some pine and citrus. Earthy and malty, with a little of the smoky/piney hops coming through.

Sevenlee (1411) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2014
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, pine, fruit and hops. Taste is medium sweet of fruit leading to a big hoppy finish. Pretty good.

Muggus69 (1273) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2014
355mL bottle Pours a slightly hazy orange gold body. Good tight rocky white head hangs around. Good nose, packs a good amount of malt upfront, grainy, toasty, light caramels & nuttiness, combining with hop notes of bitter orange, paw paw, woody spice, dried earthy herbs. Full body, not as thick as you’d expect from near on 10%! Creamy carbonation, some oily hop slickness there. Once again, there’s plenty of tasty malt upfront to enjoy; toasted cashew, golden syrup, bit of crusty bread, lays a good backbone for hop notes of bitter citrus, ripe rockmelon & paw paw, cedar & pine, earthy dried herbs. Alcohol quite well restrained. Excellent balance! Enjoyable double IPA! Not as hoppy as most, but makes up with good malt character and balance.

Aidzy (14) - - OCT 27, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2014 Pours a golden straw colour, not much carbonation. An inch of head, dark yellow in colour. Aroma of sweet caramel and cookie dough with some earthy piney notes at the back. Taste is super sweet, butterscotch and caramel, turning bitter quite quickly. An easy drinking 9.7%, though a bit too sweet for my liking.

scotchzombie (367) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Hazy bubbly amber gold with a yellow white head of about a finger. Wet lacing fades to a rim and coating. Aroma is orange and mango citrus and candy. Taste is follow with jamminess and some grapefruit pine hop bitterness to close. Well-balanced. Sweet upfront and bitter aftertaste. Excellent DIPAS that hides its 9.7% well.

rosenbergh (7416) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle in the Greenville Beer Exchange tasting event in Greenville, NC.
Cloudy amber colour with a small white head. Strong malty aroma with bitterish dark hops in the aroma. The flavour is strong piney, resiny and even fruity hops, strong bitterness and even stronger malty sweetness with alcohol notes. 9.7% is there.
