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.

yngwie (15380) - 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

Orange pour with a white head. Sweet tropical fruit and caramel malt up front. Nice grapefruit, some pine, and a touch of peach. Lightly floral, too. Somewhat sweet flavor, but plenty of hops. Good grapefruit, peach, pineapple, and pine. Light to moderate bitterness, some floral hops, and caramel.

Theydon_Bois (12724) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle split at Endo’s house, cheers to Jed, 24/05/13. Clear dark amber with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel malt forward, hops, pine, bitter orange, bitter grapefruit. Taste comprises caramel malt, hops, grapefruit, orange pith, grass, citrus fruits, pine bite. Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, agressive hop bitterness in the finish. Best DIPA of a day touring smaller brewers where it goes to show it ain’t easy to knock out a decent beer of this genre!

Koelschtrinker (12655) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Viskoser und sehr süßer Hopfenantrunk, in dem der Hopfen kurz blumig, dann aber sehr rau und keinesfalls ausgewogen. Der Eindruck bleibt im Mittelteil bestehen, hier steigt der Hopfen sogar noch, eine starke Bitterkeit folgt ihr. Langer trockener und übertrieben blumiger Hopfenabgang mit kurzem alkoholischen Brennen. Zu krass und gleichzeitig disharmonisch für mich. 11/6/5/7/12/6

bhensonb (12452) - 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.
