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 2Ė 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.

Good DIPA, but really lacking in balance. For those who love hops above all else, this is a go to. For me, this needs something besides abrasive bitterness to be as enjoyable as I believe the sum of the parts likely are.

Sweet and bitter, yet very smooth, with a mildly boozy finish. Smells sweet. Flavors of tangerine, hops, black pepper, and honey.

Bright orange and linen, a bit of spice, sharp up light drying, doughy grain. Tasty.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Pours an attractive orange amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is very hoppy but it comes off inviting and balanced. Itís a IIPA so itís hard to pick new flavors out of this beer...itís like most others...only better. Lots of grapefuit citrus with a nice sweetness to follow. This is a really good rendition of this style and more balanced than most. Excellent.

Bottle. The hazy gold-orange brew boasts everlasting sudsy foam and lingerie lace. A hedonistís cornucopia of grapefruit and tangelo, Kaffir lime, mango and peach, and fresh cigar scents welcome me, ushering a mouthwatering flavor melange of cookiedough malt and juicy, tropical fruity hops with hints of mint, quinine and pine. The palate is malty yet not sweet nor caramelly... a medium viscosity, it feels sugary, but also creamy and fluffy, and tacky with hops resins; fabulously tactile without being thick or chewy. The finish features a smoky bitterness and bracing citrus pith aftertaste. Outstanding.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bomber. Thanks to Axilla for sharing. Poured slightly hazy golden in color with a large off white head. Aroma of floral hops, a bit of citrus hops. Tastes of floral hops, sweet caramel malt and it seems to hides the alcohol well. Very nice double IPA at 9.4%.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Zeeland 08’ tasting. Poured orange from the bomber. Aroma was tangerine and sweet malt. Taste was light orange, with a malty sweetness balancing the pine. Solid and tasty.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2007 On draft at the restaurant - good stuff - very bitter and pretty sweet/velvety texture for an ipa. def tasted a bit more alcoholic than 8% (board said 9.4) ... deep and robust malt base with a solid resiny hop linger...solid. solid enough to buy a growler.

Smells of hop flowers and spruce with a hint of something sweet. The taste is initially sweet but then the overpowering lemon pith coats your entire mouth. Lots of aspirin. Celery. Good but just too much for me to really enjoy the beer.
