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.

Bottle @ J.C.G. Pours unclear orange with a creamy lasting white head and lacings. Freshly hopped nose. Pine, orange and a bit of buiscuit. Smooth and sticky palate. Taste is very hoppy, spruce, juice and pine. Lasting bitterness. A bit boozy. Nice.

yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. A slightly unclear beer, dark orange beer with a small, off-white head. Fruity nose with loads of pine cones, lemon peel and resins. A bit sugary maybe. Malty sweet base that should be more evident. Resins, fruits, lemon peel and fruityness too. Full-bodied and nicely bitter. Lasting finish. A wonderful beer, but it’s sort of one-tracked. Too warming too I think. But it’s nice and repeatable. 110301

(22oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, citrus, and a touch of maple syrup. Flavor of hops (pine, citrus, floral, resiny) and caramel with a hint if cocoa with a dry finish.

thewolf (11097) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Clear red-orange with a lovely, staying, white creamy head. Lovely lacings. Lovely fruity hops aroma on top of a good, caramelly doughy backbone. Lots of grapefruit, red apples, light piney, quite resiny. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good powerful hops. Lots of grapefruit, mild plant sap, peach, apricot, some red apple zest and the bitterness turns towards zesty fresh oranges and mild piney edges. Long, lingering, very bitter finish. Lovely DIPA.

Christian (11021) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2009
Golden with a small white head. Aroma is fruity with green grass and vegetable notes, some malt and a whiff of alcohol. Sweet malty flavour with toffee notes, some citrus hops and alcohol. If you wanna call it hop juice I prefer more hops and less sweet alcohol bomb
