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.

piscator34 (2620) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - APR 27, 2013
Draft sample. Hazy orange in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of caramel, mandarin oranges, and latex paint. Flavors are more of the same sweet caramel, sweet orange and paint, along with notes or white pepper, booze, and grassy bitterness. Something is not quite right here.

bjorn77 (662) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 29, 2017
Aromat: mocny i intensywny, przejrzałe owoce tropikalne, nuty karmelowe, cytrusy i lekka ziołowość. Wygląd: złote, jasnobursztynowe, czyste i przejrzyste, piana mała, biała i zaraz zanika do obwódki. Smak: półsłodkie, przejrzałe owoce tropikalne, mango, ananas, goryczka niezbyt wysoka, nuty karmelków owocowych, trochę grejpfrutów, ziołowość. Odczucie: dosyć pełne, alkohol ukryty, wysycenie raczej średnie. Finisz gorzkawy Całość: ciężkie, niezbyt pijalne, niezbyt gorzkie, lekko męczące, owocowe trzeba przyznać, ale brak tu ciężkości, trochę męczące. Takie sobie, przeciętne piwo. 7/4/5/4/11

Enjoyable. Liked initial full mouth feeling. Nice hops. Doesn't last as long as I'd like. Drops off too fast. But not bad drinking. Buy this if my favorites weren't there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maersk (323) - MOLDOVA - SEP 5, 2017
Clear, copper, medium head, lots of carbonation. Aroma of honey, tropical fruit, candy. More candies in the taste, solid bitter profile, a bit rough and simple, but seems like it has to be like that. Long bitter aftertaste.

Not bitter or anything specific, just a bit off. Maybe triple is just too much. Not too much hops -- that would be for fine. It just doesn't taste that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bkurtz (1125) - LITHUANIA - JUL 27, 2017
Pours a hazy deep golden/amber with a fairly large head and some lacing. Big spicy citrus aroma. Full mouthfeel with a nice ride of flavors: spicy hops, bright and sour citrus, some alcohol heat, and some bitterness in the finish. My kind of big beer.

3.8
BroadestTom (446) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2017
Aroma tropical fruits, Appearance orange, hazy, white foam, Taste light sweetness, lightly bitter, Palate medium body, Overall a nicely balanced ipa that has zero of the 10% alcohol in it. Not a lot of bitterness but it’s still there. I would suggest this beer to a friend.

3.9
mezr (151) - California, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter. Crystal clear beautiful orange color with a medium off-white head. An evolving mix of caramel, pine, citrus and even floral notes make up its aroma. Medium body, soft carbonation and a bit creamy on the palate. Stickiness is forming on my lips. Bitter, but not overly so. Long finish in which the bitter grows, followed by a hint of alcohol sneaking through.

3.7
DenverLogan (1235) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 9, 2017
From a 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, grassy & floral hops, slight pineapple and peach, citrus zest. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, pale malt, straw hops, citrus zest, minerals, field herbs, grass, must. Overall big, rich, refreshing and tasty.
