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.

Bought from Tamuras $6.99 22oz.
Clear golden amber color
Medium carbonation
Medium mouthfeel
Strong hops flavor, but not overly bitter. Fairly smooth taste does not show the high alcohol so must be careful when drinking.
Overall a good beer. Not really my style so probably would not buy again, but it was great to try.

Horrible. At Least for an attempt at an IPA and a double IPA at that. Huge caramel malt at the front of the tongue and you just don't recover from it. Horrible.
