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.

Theydon_Bois (12075) - 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!

Christian (11612) - 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

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.

Pinball (11089) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2011
bottle from ølbutikken almost clear orange, large smooth beige head. Fantastic aromatic malty, sweet malty, strong hoppy aroma, the aroma reminds me of one of my alltime favorites, ølfabrikken rug ipa, sweet solid malty base and a very strong hop profile on top of that. Fantastic. flavor is very sweet malty, white sugar, slight note of oxidation or something dusty, strong bitter hoppy aftertaste, Very sweet, very bitter hoppy, but balanced. Not as great as the aroma though. Palate is extremely soft, This one hit my soft spot for sweet ipa’s pretty solidly. Very delicious, but there is something in there i don’t quite like. Perhaps a strange hoppy flavor from one of the hops- i don’t quite recognize it..
