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.

Left Coast Voo Doo American Stout
Fajny stoucik. W zapachu kawa, popiół, i trochę amerykańskich chmieli. W smaku mocno palone, pełne, lekko jakby mleczne. Gorzka czekolada, intensywnie kakaowa, trochę wanilii. Goryczka dość wysoka, przyjemnie aczkolwiek lekko chmielowa, żywiczna. Zalega taki palony posmak który trochę przeszkadza. Przyjemny stout, bogaty w smaki, przynajmniej nie pozostawia złudzeń, że nie jest to black ipa.

Left Coast Del Mar St. Export Lager
Sampled together with Dr. Beer. Sampled blindly in black glassware. Smell is very clean, typical low fermentation. Mild malty ( crisp) , light hopnotes. Distant but present bitterness. When shaken, some alcohol ( not too much, but more than the average lager) Taste is rather full, malty, aromatic, bit bready. Mild hops. Caramel notes. Some aftertaste of bitterness, fading malts. Bit bready. Bit thicker MF than an average lager.

Left Coast Hop Juice
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.

Left Coast Hop Juice
Only if hop juice was a real thing...luckily enough there is an IPA by the name that is excellent in every way. Pristine, clear gold brick color with a supple head of white foam. Tantalizing aromas and flavors of juicy ruby grapefruit, orange peel, some hints of blackberries and passion fruit. Sweet caramel and cereal grain base cut by the fresh cut pine at the end.

Bomber bottle from Sprouts. It poured a dark golden color with a nice white head that had great retention. Aroma is floral, citrus - grapefruit and pineapple - and resinous pine. The taste is citrus, some apricots, and caramel. It is medium bodied, bitter but not as bad as I expected at 100 IBUs. Very nice Tripel. Will have to try the DIPA version to see if there is much difference.

Left Coast Trestles IPA
Botella de 99Cervezas. Vierte en un bonito color dorado muy transparente. Aunque la cerveza tiene una buena carbonatación (se ven múltiples hilos de burbujas subiendo), la formación de espuma es más bien escasa. Se trata de una espuma blanca bastante fugaz y con cierto nivel de adherencia. De intensidad media en nariz, da desde el primer momento notas de lúpulo, así como algunas notas afrutadas (como de ciruela blanca) y florales. La hierba fresca e incluso un puntito de menta están presentes. También una nota de piel de cítrico. Complejidad media-alta y bastante bien equilibrada. Agradable y refrescante en nariz. De entre los sabores básicos, el primero y principal es el amargo, muy marcado pero no agresivo, con carácter pero no astringente. Las notas de lúpulo y sobre todo herbales salen ahora con fuerza. El dulzor está muy muy al fondo, aunque presente, a pesar de lo cual tiene un final claramente seco. Buena persistencia pudiendo llegar a saturar la boca con su amargor (en el caso de paladares poco amantes del amargo). Cuerpo medio en boca y textura ligeramente rasposa y picante. Amargor muy expresivo y extraordinariamente refrescante. Muy recomendable si te gusta el amargo.

Left Coast Trestles IPA
Bottle pour into pilsner glass. Aroma is resiny, citrusy, tropical fruit hops. Appearance is hazy light brown with decent sparkle, finger-width foamy white head with fair retention and leggy lacing. Taste is mix of tropical fruit, orange, lemon and resinous hops, with bitter winning out. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with creamy texture, soft carbonation and finish as taste. Overall, a good representative of a West Coast IPA but not truly distinctive. As such, mildly too bitter.
