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.

Youll need your "big boy" pants on to drink this insanely hoppy brew. The first sign of its major league taste is the color - the deep orange honey texture will literally block out the sun. The drinking experience is unique and its best enjoyed in small increments.

VueltaBirrista (78) - Murcia, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2016
De color mbar ligeramente turbia, con una cabeza de espuma poco abundante pero que se pega bien en la copa todo el rato. En nariz es super agradable con matices frutales, tanto dulces como ctricos; incluso percibo un agradable sabor a pan. Se nota que los chavales no escatiman en gastos y aqu hay materia prima de calidad. En cambio en boca son palabras mayores. El pino y la resina lo inunda prcticamente todo, convirtiendo el trago (a mi gusto) en demasiado seco. Adems su carga alcohlica se hace muy evidente. Sus 100 IBU no dan tregua y el resultado es un bombazo de lpulo que os juro os puede llegar a dormir la boca.

jgb9348 (5907) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Clearish golden coloured body with a thick, four centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of super fresh hops, grapefruit, pine and earth - super strong with a lot of residual sugars and alcohol noticeable as well. Full-bodied; Strong hop flavours at first that literally taste like a hop juice with all the sugars noticeable. Aftertaste shows more well-rounded flavours with earth, pine, grass, hay and malt with the sugars and the hops. Overall, a very nice and hop/sugar-centric beer with a good finish and complexity at the end, full of alcohol as well. Nice to sample even West of the Left Coast! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Malama Market in Haleiwa, Oahu, Hawaii on 21-August-2016 for US$7,88 sampled a day later in my hotel room in Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii on 22-August-2016.
