3.85/5 rDev +0.5%
Served in a footed glass at Ale Arsenal.
Nice head. Mahogany clear. Heavy lacing. Smells of earthy hops. Citrus zest. Tropical fruit. Dryish. Zesty. Hint of caramel malt. Light, spritely, and crisp. This is a rather light, subdued, interesting AIPA. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Recommended. Would have again. Aftertaste is dry and spicy.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.
Pours a hazy dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy citrus zest and grapefruit juice flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice citrus zest qualities all around.

On tap at The Publick House in Brookline, MA.
Had this right after a Green Flash West Coast IPA, and if I didn't know different I would have sworn at first taste that the GF had a higher ABV.
Beautifully balanced beer. Rich copper color, dense creamy off-white head, citrusy hop aroma. Flavor is incredibly well balanced between the massive malt and hop levels, and the alcohol is very well hidden. With very little lingering bitterness, this beer is surprisingly easy to drink for an 8% IPA.
Kudos to Lost Abbey on their first IPA. Outstanding.
