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.

300th rating! Pours a clear golden with long lasting head and great lacing. Aroma is tons of toffee malt with caramel and licorice, slightly dank with dark fruit. Very rich, heavy, syrupy aroma. Not what I’m used to in a West Coast DIPA, but enjoyable nonetheless. Taste is sticky sweet up front with a cotton candy vibe, then some hops cut in with a juicy pine that dries out into a good aftertaste. Really dry finish. Overall this is rich and enjoyable, but much different than I’m used to for this style.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle Pours a lightly hazy copper with a good off white head. The head is frothy and lasting. Producing spotty lacing. Has a good aroma of citrus and pine. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is excellent a sharp hit of bitterness. The alcohol is well hidden and this is blended very well. Has a resiny texture. The body is full. Has a wondewrful finish with a great aftertaste. This is one heck of a beer.

bookman10 (946) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Floral hop aromas. Flavor is just a bit too much on the sweet side for my tastes--seems to favor the malt over the hops. There are the usual pine-bitter and citrus flavors at work. Quite a bitter finish overall.

Huge citrus, wet hop aroma. Taste is all orange and smooth/sweet goodness. Very nice retention of head, with a sweet/bitter hop lingering yummy finish.

Bottle - pours burnt orange with a nice head and good lacing. The aroma was promising but it was just too dry for my taste.

Smells of pine needles and some orange zest. Nice balanced flavors. Just the right amount of bitterness. Mmmm

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2009
22oz bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Pours a brilliant amber topped by big sticky off-white head. Smells very yummy, lots of pine, citrus, papaya, and toffee fill my nostrils. Full resinous hop presence in the flavor. Notes of tangerine, pine, and mango. Very good stuff.

Tasted from the tap on the 08/02/2016. This is the kind of juice I like at night! Very hoppy and fruity beer. Finish is medium dry and bitter. Very well balanced hop combination. Next one please!

Bottle. Pale copper with small white head. Aroma of floral and pine hops. Medium body with slight malt sweetness upfront with some notes of nuttiness and a a piney hop finish.
