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.

22oz bottle: Appearance is a slightly dark brown with a fair mount of off white head. Aroma is hoppy, but a cold is hindering the rest of my smell. Taste is very hoppy, but lacks the resin taste that I like from IIPAs. Still a great brew though.

Pours hazy deep orange with a small white head. Aroma is strong citrus and sweet caramel.Taste is overall sweet, almost cloying, medium bodied, bordering to watery. Could wish for some more hop bitterness here. Light bitter/sweet finish, harsh.

22 oz bomber, no freshness date. ABV on my sample is listed @ 9.4%

Hazy orange, thin head, no retention, not much in the way of lace.

Aroma is scorched caramel, earthy hops, some citrus.

Flavor is sweet caramel up front with a grapefruit pith finish.

Alcohol is a bit hot going down.

Balanced for the most part, does get a little sticky as it warms, and the hops get a little muddled, but it’s not bad.

On tap @ Hamilton’s. Delicious. Didn’t make the Left Coast connection immediately, but that doesn’t matter at all. This is a fine DIPA that openly hopped out upon hittng the mouth and like silk going down. The kind of stuff that defines the SD beer scene.

Poured amber with an off white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Solid hop flavor with some citrus hints. Finished rather dry. Not bad.

Not too shabby, considering its age! 22oz bomber from a summertime trip to Colorado, wasted away for half a year in the back of my fridge, always passed over for the fresher seasonals, huge stouts, etc. Record high February temps made me crack out this old girl, and she’s served me well as rating #401. Pours a clear honey orange with a big (2-finger) white head that laces like a champ. Aroma is powerful citrus, ranging from pineapple and orange to lemon and grapefruit. Flavor is a bit flat, overly sweet to start, and overly dry at the finish, but it could just be a result of my mishandling.

Aroma lost on me thanks to my sinuses. Taste is a mix of citrusy, then slightly piney hops with malt and alcohol sweetness sharing the taste about 50/50 with the hops. Very drinkable, so the ABV will sneak up on you. Good DIPA, a bit malty sweet for my taste.

Tasted at the Epic Beer Festival in San Diego. This one stood out for me. Pours an orange color with fluffy white head. Nose is pone, resin, hops, cirtus. Taste is quite citrusy and pine, with minimal hop bitterness. Overall very good.
