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.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2005
UPDATED: APR 22, 2008 [At GABF 2004] A clear yellow beer with a huge beige head. The aroma is sweet and very hoppy, but also with loads of grass-notes. The flavor is sweet grassy combined with sticky caramel flavors. It dries out the mouth, just like eating hops.

Hazy amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Softish palate. Fine carbonation. Smooth creamy malt base, a little toffee. Juicy pine hops with citrus, tropical fruits and a little grass. It’s a rich heady mix with nothing dominating. Finishes semi dry. Very very fine DIPA.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 2009-09-03, bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Amber color, medium head. The hoppy aroma is excellent, perfumy, fruity and resiny. The body has a medium structure, the mouthfeel lingers between the dry side and the sweet; good toffee flavor, with a sweet nut edge and pleasant spicy touch (black pepper); strong hopping, partially resiny and lightly fruity. The final is hoppy and it shows a sharp pepper character too. Solid.

2009-06-16, draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 8-4-8-5-17=42
Amber color, shining; small head. It has a very nice hop aroma, fruity and resiny. Solid body, with very good, sweet, round caramel and toffee flavor; very strong hopping, scraping the tongue, but leaving behind good piney resins and more orange fruitness than most beers; for what is worth, it can also fall in the category of American Strong Ales for its sweet caramel and toffee flavor. Powerful and excellent.
