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.

wmubronco1992 (709) - Coldwater, Michigan, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Bottle. Honey color. White head. Sweet hop aroma. Taste is sweet, maybe too sweet. Not enough bitterness to offset. Thick palate, but still light enough to be drinkable. Ok, but not something I would seek out.

bnoel09 (586) - Elk Grove, California, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Poured into a shaker glass. Amber almost light copper color with almost no head, Aroma is super mild with some sweet malt notes and some earthy hops. Flavor is sweet malt forward with some earthy and resinous hop notes. Full bodied with almost no carbonation. No date on the bottle, wondering if this is old. Its a bit cloyingly sweet, which combined with the flat carbonation is a bit off-putting.

DocJitsu (1827) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Pours a crystal clear, classic golden with a rich, white head. Now this looks like the quintessential beer. Both fermented and unfermented pale malt aromas are noted. Quite a bit of alcohol is picked up. A clean hop profile bouquet. Malt forward, but not "malty," per se. A lot of alcohol. A piney hop character thats just present enough to temper the malt prominence.

Jabah (427) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2015
Not one of the better DIPAs out there. The balance is off. Little too sweet, not enough hops....something like that. There seems to be a decent amount of hops in there, just not bitter enough to offset the sweetness. Has a semi-clear gold to light orange appearance. This single sample was more than enough for me.

33cl bottle on 01-Nov-2015, poured into a stemmed tulip glass. Hazy darkish amber colour with virtually no head. Medium to soft carbonation .Aroma of pine, caramel and citrus. Slightly bitter on the palate, grapefruit and heavily hopped. Long spicy bittersweet finish.

Flarra biskopen Malm. Doftar ovanligt tydligt av malt fint tr. Ek ja lite st sdan. Smakar d? Jo frst tydlig fyllig maltig knsla i munnen. Sen lite fruktstma, av druvor drefter kommer en medelbeska smak av barrskogen kliver in. Lngt frn west coast hr. Lgt kolsyrad bra. Kul bra kvalitets Dipa utan att tillhra de bsta.

APPEARANCE - 2FH that lasts, carbonation, light, clear, foamy, lots of lacing, amber. AROMA/SCENT - Hops, citrus, pine. TASTE - Hops, nutty, pine. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Carbonatin, dry, lingering, astringent. VALUE - $8 for a 12-oz bottle, OK. OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - It was OK, but Left Coast doesnt stamp a brew date. Unprofessional!
