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.

Enjoyed at tasting at the Castle of the Mad Drbayern, along with his Igor, Celticbrew, our beer Pimp Brian, and Uncle Steve. Poured a dark yellow, with a minimal head. I found the aroma citrusy and fruity and light. The flavor was nice and hoppy with a heavy floral overtone. Mouthfeel was good.

On tap Oggis Orange. Poured a deep copper/red color with a small off white head. Aroma was loaded with all kinds of hops and a big amount of sweet malt. It said that it was 9.2%abv and it tasted every bit of that. Strong hop bitterness and flavor that destroy your palet. Finish was all alcohol. Still good, but I remember it being alot better about 2 years ago.

Bottle. Pours a fairly clear amber, nice, fluffy off-white head. Aroma promised hops, grass and a slight touch of citrus. Flavor is a more subdued version of the aroma, hops are dominant, maybe a touch of caramel hidden in there. Dry and bitter on the finish. Sorry Skourtis !

Color is a nice deep amber, foam is solid and rocky. The aims is at first hop resin, then caramel. There are citrus and pine notes. Flavor is hoppy and strong on the caramel. It is almost syrupy. Finish is nice and clean. Yummy sipping beer.

Very clear medium gold color wit ha nice white head. There appears to be very little carbonation in this beer. Aroma of hops, flowers and sweet malts. This beer has a strong bitter hop flavor, but also has a very distinct roasty flavor. This is a bit of a more complex flavor than you get in many double IPAs. This beer feels more carbonated in the mouth than it looks in the glass.

Hazy orange with a big white head. Aroma of apricot, sweet apple, orange and strawberry. Flavour is very hoppy with apricot, pepper, orange and strawberry and grapefruit. Nice mouthfeel with a lot going on without getting messy.

Equilibri perfecte entre dolçor i amargor. Espuma i color atractiu. Molt aromàtica. Cervesa altament recomanable pels fanàtics del llúpol.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2014 Superb hoppy beer. Was excellent from the tap and went down like a treat. The only drawback is its strength - it’s too strong to have too many!

Nice clear amber pour with a decent head. Nose was mild for a IIPA, mostly light citrus and grass. The alcohol came barreling through at the first (and subsequent) sips. Medium hops bitterness, which was a bit of a disappointment after reading the blurb - I expected more. Normally, the less malt I taste, the better, but the malt overtones worked here. Dialing back on the alcohol (or at least hiding it better) would be an improvement. The finish was complex, but did not last long. Serve with a hearty steak or spicy Asian dishes.

(on-tap at Cato’s) pint is a very pretty, clear amber with a thin white head that holds well and leaves good lace. very full nose is a combination of sticky-sweet maltiness and citrus-zest hops. smells a bit like a bigfoot. tastes a bit like a bigfoot, too. lots of sweet sweet malt flavor shoved up against a lot of tart, citric hoppiness, and a big IBU finish. this beer kind of fell apart for me. I felt like I was drinking a much bigger, heavier beer. (is that 8% right?). kind of like the anti-Pliny the Elder, which is a biggish beer that drinks smaller than it is.
