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.

bhensonb (11918) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draft at Oggi’s, Liberty Station Point Loma. Got a beer mat that says it could be "Left Coast". Strong pine aroma. Dark orange tinged amber color. The white head quickly filmed. Starts with strong pine, a little malt, and a citrus hint. Medium bodied with at least mild carbonation. Heat at the finish. Quite dry finish, and the mouth drips with evergreen oil bitter. Fantastic.
