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.

djd07 (12535) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy copper amber with a medium frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a strong floral hop and pine. Thick mouthfeel with a light malt and resiny hops. Lingering bitter fInish. Hides the alcohol well, easy to drink, a very good IIPA from Left Coast.

DSG (12533) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks beerandbeyond. Hazy dark orange-amber color with a white head. Aroma of malt and resinous and slightly citric stale hops. Flavor starts sweetish and malty and finishes with strong bitterness and a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Seems kinda old.

BeerandBlues2 (12474) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 27, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2011 GABF 2009 and again at Oggis Point Loma. Pours clear light yellow with a small, fizzy white head, mostly diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, hay, straw, cereal), heavy hop (flowers, grass, pine, resin), average yeast (sweat) with notes of pear, peach, honey, and apricot. Medium bodied, alcoholic texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness. This beer is a bit boozy.

thewolf (12270) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 11, 2011
Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph.
Clear red-orange with a lovely, staying, white creamy head. Lovely lacings. Lovely fruity hops aroma on top of a good, caramelly doughy backbone. Lots of grapefruit, red apples, light piney, quite resiny. Medium carbonation, lovely dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good powerful hops. Lots of grapefruit, mild plant sap, peach, apricot, some red apple zest and the bitterness turns towards zesty fresh oranges and mild piney edges. Long, lingering, very bitter finish. Lovely DIPA.

Dogbrick (12243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle at the Oggis Apple Valley location. This brew is a clear dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of grassy hops, pine and caramel malt. Medium body with a decent amount of piney hops character. Some sweet malt and citrus in the background too. The finish is hoppy with a grapefruit aftertaste. Solid from start to finish.

Pinball (11981) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2011
bottle from lbutikken almost clear orange, large smooth beige head. Fantastic aromatic malty, sweet malty, strong hoppy aroma, the aroma reminds me of one of my alltime favorites, lfabrikken rug ipa, sweet solid malty base and a very strong hop profile on top of that. Fantastic. flavor is very sweet malty, white sugar, slight note of oxidation or something dusty, strong bitter hoppy aftertaste, Very sweet, very bitter hoppy, but balanced. Not as great as the aroma though. Palate is extremely soft, This one hit my soft spot for sweet ipas pretty solidly. Very delicious, but there is something in there i dont quite like. Perhaps a strange hoppy flavor from one of the hops- i dont quite recognize it..
