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.

Very Well Done!!! Now is the time for all good men to sample great beers. Not justly satisfying the parched tongue, but justly imbibing the taste and aroma and the escence of a nice beer

Lots of hops up front, a little bit of pine and some bread malts. Some sweet caramel malts. Color is a deep orange with a small light brown head with okay retention and good lacing. The taste is one of the more subdued you’ll find in a DIPA. Very sweet caramel malts lead the way, followed by a bit of pine and citrus. Citrus comes through a bit more as it warms. A little bit of alcohol warmth. Surprisingly easy to drink for a DIPA, probably due to its more subtle nature. Overall, this is a pretty good intro to DIPA, but nothing special.

A nice orangey color with a one finger head. Aroma is citrus, piney and a slight sweetness. Taste is predominantly citrusy. A nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Necscv (22) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Caramel nose. Taste is toffee, caramel, diluted bitterness, honey. Beer is syrupy, honey and bitter orange peel on finish. Tastes fine, not characteristics not what I’m looking for in a double ipa.

Brentv (354) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2014
From bottle. Pours a clear orange with almost no head and no lacing. Taste is caramel malts. Taste is caramel with some citrus, but this is a very malty IPA. Bitter finish. Very light carbonation.

UncleKorm (814) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2014
On tap poured a clear dark golden hue w/ a creamy white head. Moderate malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold bitter finish. Tastes are orange, tangerine, malt and hay. Full bodied and balanced mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IndianaRed (2436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2014
22 oz bottle. Deep orange amber with a small but dense off-white head. Big malty carmelized aroma and flavor. Muted hop notes, like it had "aged" and toned down. I was expecting a much bigger hop presence.

matty (196) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange-copper color with not much of an off-white that disappears as soon as it’s poured. Got a lot of caramel/candy aroma with almost no hop presence. Taste is the same, just a sticky flavor of caramel and burnt caramel. Finish is more of the same. From all of the reviews, I expected better. I may have to try this one again.

Pours gold into a snifter. White head with medium retention. Mild caramel aromas. Medium bodied with sweet toffee and bread front to back. Little to no hop presence. Tastes old and stale.

Mr_Abner (3) - Michigan, USA - AUG 26, 2014 does not count
Undated bottle poured into a glass. Smell is mostly sweetness and malt; no dry hop aroma left. Clear amber color. Taste is a nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. The taste starts sweeter, and that sweetness gives way to a clean, lasting bitter finish. I like that a lot and also like the balance between sweetness and bitterness, but would like to try it fresh on tap.

Lukaduke (2185) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy medium golden color with two fingers of eggshell foam. Nose is oxidized with some cardboard, citrus jello, round caramel malt and some stale grass. Palate follows with just underwhelming hop profile that taste old and stale... no date on bottle offered but Maine just received our first shipment of beer from this brewery and personally it taste like a state couldn’t sell it so they sent their stale bottles to us !
