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.

BeerandBlues2 (9597) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 GABF 2009 and again at Oggi’s Point Loma. Pours clear light yellow with a small, fizzy white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, hay, straw, cereal), heavy hop (flowers, grass, pine, resin), average yeast (sweat) with notes of pear, peach, honey, and apricot. Medium bodied, alcoholic texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness. This beer is a bit boozy.

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2010
Bottle… Clear, deep yellow ale with a small, fat-bubbled, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is a fruity swirl of grapefruit, apricot, peach, guava and a sprig of pine. Full-bodied and creamy with spent carbonation. The flavor offers nice malts – honey and toffee. The hops seem more aromatic than bitter. Finishes bittersweet and nearly balanced – a little more sweet than bitter. Bottle courtesy of mashmaster!

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2007
Deep amber with a hazy hoppy aroma, bright citrus aroma (grapefruit and tangerine) and a fairly wet earthiness. Flavour is earthy and softly citric with grapefruit and chewy orange pith bitterness. The malts are a bit sweet and cloying, but lacking in character. Not really the type of IIPA I go for.
