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.

650ml bottle at Oliver Twist. The aroma is fantastic! There is a slight oily taste in an unpleaseant way.

Bottle. I really like the sweet caramel and grapefruity smell of this beer. The taste is a little unbalanced due to the lack of malt. Too fucking bitter without finesse...

Lightly hazy gold, white head. Nose is grapefruit, barleywiney malts, some alcohol, hairspray, brown sugar, alcohol laden fruits. Flavor is bitter hops, brown sugar, lots of alcohol/burning cheap vodka. Harsh hop bitterness towards the end with some pith & brown sugar.

Not as much malt as I usually require in a DIPA. Its not exactly really "hop juicy" either. What we have here is a medium hopped DIPA, with less malt than usual. Poura a golden color with little head. Good price though, $5.25/22oz. It does have an interesting spicy hop note that I usually do not detect in my more favorite DIPAs, so points there. All in all, a decent DIPA, middle of the road.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 2009-09-03, bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Amber color, medium head. The hoppy aroma is excellent, perfumy, fruity and resiny. The body has a medium structure, the mouthfeel lingers between the dry side and the sweet; good toffee flavor, with a sweet nut edge and pleasant spicy touch (black pepper); strong hopping, partially resiny and lightly fruity. The final is hoppy and it shows a sharp pepper character too. Solid.

2009-06-16, draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 8-4-8-5-17=42
Amber color, shining; small head. It has a very nice hop aroma, fruity and resiny. Solid body, with very good, sweet, round caramel and toffee flavor; very strong hopping, scraping the tongue, but leaving behind good piney resins and more orange fruitness than most beers; for what is worth, it can also fall in the category of American Strong Ales for its sweet caramel and toffee flavor. Powerful and excellent.

ghawener (1571) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle: A great DIPA, floral, citrus leaning towards orange, honey and piney resin notes. Lo siento Ramenen, no me aguant y me la tom. Te llevo otras para compensar! Food Pairing: Enjoy by itself, its food enough.

Amber beer with minimal head and lacing. Very hoppy, not quite enough balance for my taste in the nose or the taste.
