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.

You’ll need your "big boy" pants on to drink this insanely hoppy brew. The first sign of its major league taste is the color - the deep orange honey texture will literally block out the sun. The drinking experience is unique and it’s best enjoyed in small increments.

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 5, 2015
Bouteille 355ml. Oragé léger, col crémeux blanc-casé. Arôme est bien houblonné renfermé, agrumes et résineux mais dont la caractère des quais 10% ressort bien. Malt perce en rétro. Palais sur une effervescence moyenne-haute avec un alcool bien marqué voire un peu trop présent et de ce fait cachant un peu du caractère des houblons. Retrouve un côté houblonné huileux, résineux qui reste cependant bien agréable. Caramel résiduel presque biscuité-crystal légèrement collant aux lèvres.

Shippy (10) - - OCT 2, 2015
Poured from a bottle. Cloudy, burnt orange color with a whitish head. Caramel malty aroma with hints of pine. Flavors much the same with mild bitterness. Medium mouth feel. Dryness and bitterness linger briefly on the tongue. Very enjoyable overall.

BlazerT (308) - POLAND - SEP 23, 2015
Sensoric. Bottle. Clear amber with small to medium, white head. Medicore head retention and poor lacing. Medium aroma of tropical fruits, in the second raw some citrus (grapefruit) notes. Taste is high bitter from the beginning till the end of degustation. Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, finish is highly bitter and dry. In general solid IIPA, which I like - bitter and dry, not overload with malts.

Idiosynkrasie (5171) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, hoppy aroma with a touch of glue, condensed notes of orange and candied orange zest, some lemongrass, cautious hints of green Thai curry, liquorice. Taste is biting bitter hoppy, resinous and piney, caramel malty basis with almond touch, chalky overtones. Dense and concentrated - may work as nutrition for astronauts, but not for me.

Botella 33 cl tomada en el momento en Cimmeria 19-09-2015. (r776). Lote ZBLCHJ1 hasta 05-2016. Color ámbar bronce transparente con poca espuma blanca. Aromas y sabores intensos maltosos y lupulos maduros que persisten durante un buen rato. Cuerpo medio a intenso con buena sensación alcohólica y algo pastoso que hacen que cueste beberla. Buena.

TET (2207) - Kaarina, FINLAND - SEP 13, 2015
A dark yellow beer, a head is small and blond. Aroma has caramel malts, peaches, some tropical notes and pine. Taste has caramel malts, the bitterness is nicely balancing the sweetness, pine, some herbs. Long lasting bitterness. Medium+ bodied, not sticky. Not so fresh anymore, probably quite old bottle. The strong bitterness is balancing this caramelly DIPA.
