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.

Smells of hop flowers and spruce with a hint of something sweet. The taste is initially sweet but then the overpowering lemon pith coats your entire mouth. Lots of aspirin. Celery. Good but just too much for me to really enjoy the beer.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear copper with two fingers of off white head. Aroma is pine with some lemony citrus. Somewhat malty and caramel in flavor also. Alcohol is evident. Nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear amber color. Enough malt to balance hops. Multi-flavored hop profile. Solid DIPA, but nothing unusual.

Sample pour at Sheffield garden walk craft beer festival. Orange with white head. Very hoppy and bitter. Tangy grapefruit and apricot notes. A pretty aggressive beer

Right on the money! Hits all tbe marks for a DIPA, and then some. Slightly hazy body, creamy head and thick lacing. Smooth piney hops backbone.

Bottle from CBX. Hazy copper pour with a fluffy white head. Dank, sticky, grapefruit and tangerine hops in the nose with a bready caramel malt background. Flavor is quite similar yet not as malty as I was expecting with a dry bitter finish. Not too shabby.
