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.

355ml bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white soapy head. Medium to full body with moderate carbonation. Well balanced full flavoured bitter and sweet taste. Tropical fruits, citrus, grapefruit, caramel, malts, some alcohol and spices. Great brew.

Had this on tap at Najas Place in Redondo Beach. This ripped my fucking face off. I had to go home and drink a Bud Light because my palate was so fucked. I loved it!

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 Tasted on draft @ Mission Valley location. Floral hop aroma with strong hop bite. Very smooth with good balance of fruity, floral, and citrus present.

riversideAK (6167) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2008
This confuses me because no one has rated this yet, but I am drinking a bottle of Left Coast Hop Juice. 9.6% ABV. Aroma of fresh grapefruit and orange juice. Hazy brownish orange. Thin head. Nice lacing. Hops, Hops, Hops! Some puckering bitterness comes through. Grapefruit, orange, tangerine, Light toasted malt. Some alcohol. Resiny. Chewy. Almost everything I look for in an IIPA. Not as good as Pliny, but damn good! Re-rated after it warmed. Deducted 1 point overall because it is a little hot in terms of alcohol.

desurfer (1290) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Pours a bright orange with lively carbonation. Aroma is heavy on the citrus and is extremely hoppy. Flavor explodes with a massive amount of sticky, hoppy goodness and a good deal of alcohol. I’m not sure if this bottle is fresher than several of the recent reviews, but this is a hop monster that delivers on the promise its name implies. Great stuff.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Clear dark yellow, wan frothy head. Wonderful hoppy aroma, seemingly some Columbus here. Very pungent and woody. Very balanced flavor, somewhat doughy and subdued on the malt side, with plenty of earthy, slowly building woody and piney hop notes. Softly malty, assertively bitter finish. Wonderfully put together.

Bomber. This pours copper with a foamy thin head with huge lacing. Big ass aroma of citrus that stings the nose. Flavor is loaded with grapefruit, pine, and orange peel. Big bitter bite that lasts and a mild warming buzz in the gut. It is so good and so easy to drink. Excellent IIPA.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2011
22 oz bomber bought at Cap N’Cork in L.A. Pours a beautiful clear copper orange with a medium sized beige head. Aroma leaps up from the bottle; strong tangerine citrus, apricots, and fresh pine needles. Taste of tangerine citrus, apricots and wet fresh pine needles. Alcohol exceedingly well worked in. Excellent !!

Served in a 22 oz brown bottle, poured into a clean glass. Subtle malty aromas over powered with lots of hops! Sweet taste balanced with lots of bitterness, that doesn’t linger. Refreshing and leaves you ready for more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had this one a couple times now in Dec. Perfect for the Christmas holiday season since it has that ’fresh cut Christmas tree in your mouth’ taste. Sweet and resiny with a bit of malt. Poured out of a bomber bottle into a 12 oz. glass to break it into two servings. This is yummy. My new go to IIPA for under $5 at Albertson’s.
