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.

Pours deep amber with a small head.
Aroma of resinous hops along with spicy notes, a little booze and a massive clean malt note.
Malty flavours but a load of resinous hops with some pine too. A little soft booze and some herbal hops later on.
Nice moderate carbonation.

12 oz bottle (could not find any dating) poured into a tulip glass.

A - Pours a ruby orange with a touch of cloudiness. Thin half finger head.

S - Dense, centered around berries (strawberry), blood orange, some piney hops and a touch of heat.

T - Very malt forward, doughy even, before some back end hops and bitterness peaks through. Once you breathe out you notice the ABV.

M -- Moderate to below moderate carbonation. Sits full in the mouth.

O - I thought it was tasty. Nothing will jump out and blow your mind (which seems to be a needed separator in this space). Its almost like an American and English DIPA blend.

Very strong but in good way, great beer to put your man pants on and get away from budlight.

L: A deep orange-brown, with ample amount of cream-tan colored head. Moderately sparse amount of slow-rising carbonation visible. 4

S: Heavy citrus-pine with hints of resin as well as some floral hints. 4

T: Fairly sweet. Delicious sweet hoppiness, with the hop flavor being an even split between piney-citrus and earthy-resin. 3.75

F: medium-full to full bodied. Very crisp, with an above-average carbonation level. The feel was quite syrupy-sticky however, which is generally not something I like. 3.5

O: A decent imperial IPA. 3.75
