Notes / 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.

Has the hearty golden appearance, not bright, sullen, 1/2" white head, decent retention. Aroma was not well dry hopped, these 5 hop strains aren't much in the nose.

Plenty of bitterness and crystal malt. Hides the alcohol decently. Not overly viscous. Could use more discernable hop flavors other than grapefruit and caramel from the malt. One of those double ipas that tastes like they doubled the malt bill and ibus, but not necessarily the hop flavors.

Bottle. Clear amber pour, with a fine-grained white head. Honey, green hops, alcohol spiciness, grapefruit and a fair amount of tropical hops. Medium to full bodied, soft and oily.
