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.

Iím a big fan of IPAs and Left Coast, but just donít care for this beer. Itís very one-note - just hops and nothing else. Slightly cloudy pour. Aroma is lots of pine, a little citrus. Flavor is an over-poweringly resin. Very dry finish.

Strong hopps and pine flavored in this beer. Pours orange with a cream colored thick head. Smells like hopps and grain. Bottle pour at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Malty cereal aroma. Pours clear orange with a thin white head. Not real hoppy flavor, mostly bread and cereal malt flavors.

Hop_Hedonist (313) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2015
Malt dominant from sniff to slurp - the Michael Jordan of sweet digestive biscuit malt too - hops there in abundance but cowering under their malt master whips - I prefer hops on top so Iíve marked this down accordingly but my boozing buddy absolutely raved about the malt and obviously this suits his malt mouth.

Darwenus (634) - Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2015
This thing tastes filthy. I really like it. It pours a murky gold color, there isnít much head, and the foam fades quickly. Mild, sweet citrus in the nose, not much else. The flavor really brings the complexity. That citrus hits up front, then dense, warm malt. The finish is a musky, strong hop overload. Vegetable and grass notes dominate. 9.7% ABV is apparent. Good beer.

Tap. Orange color with white head. Aroma is sweet malt and rind. Taste is very swet, sticky citrus. Lots of malt.

Imaena (2038) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2015
Bottle. This is a nice biting IPA with serious hop wallop and a little more viscosity and sweetness than I am used to.

snoworsummer (3147) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Draft at Oggis. Pours opaque amber gold with a fizzy off white head and lots of lacing. Tastes like creamy caramel, smooth booze, smooth citrus hops, toasted nutty malt, and grapefruit. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, grapefruit, and nutty malt.

mkel07 (4258) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 100515. Vibrant golden orange colour with a level layer of foam. Pine needles and floral citrus hop aromas, with some passionfruit thrown in. Flavour smacks you in the mouth and leaves a resinous coating on the tongue. Big bold beer.

Onslow (1257) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber brew, small head. Aroma of caramel, over ripe fruit, a little citrus and alcohol. Taste is caramel malt - surprised at how sweet - with a fruity hops expression towards the end of the swallow. A little resin emerges towards the end. Stays sweet through the end. I was expecting a hop bomb but this was restrained and rather malty. Bought a single and find no date on the bottle - maybe this one was past its prime.

Good hops notes and taste, the main thing that comes through is the alcohol. Tough to make a beer that strong, good job
