I’ve drooled over the reviews of Lost Coast beers for a good time now, I was shocked to find them available all the way from isolated Eureka, CA in Knoxville, TN. I get good vibes from the stubby bottle before I even open it. BIG head on the pour, so much as I have to stop half way through and let things calm down. Before pouring I actually noticed a lot of chunks hanging out in the bottom of the bottle, when the head finally recedes enough to let me finish the pour I make no attempts to keep them there. The dimpled head exceeds the constraints of the pint glass giving it that “ice-cream float” effect, one of my favorite sights on this earth. The body is noticeably darker than other beers of the style, almost a ruddy light-brown, the chunks hang in suspension as if they were floating in a gelatinous substance, I swear if I shake it, the glass moves but the chunks remain stationary! The head retains like a true champion leaving fat globs of lace clinging lazily to the glass. The nose is a bit more subtle than I expected, a nice dense presence of sweet malt, I’m picking up orange creamsicle from the combination of sweet malt and citrus hops. This beer is also chunky in the mouth, not just the obvious things floating in it, but the mouthfeel of the malt (a very nice thing). Malt is up front and thick in it’s caramel and toffee tones, the bitterness levels are quite high (even compared to others of the style), hop flavors appear in the finish and are very sweet, apricot, sweet citrus, honeydew melon, watermelon, drizzled ever-so-lightly with pine sap. Bitterness resinated nicely in the aftertaste. This IPA is a little different than many others I have tried, it seems where the hop flavors usually are a sharp contrast to the sweetness of the malt whereas with Indica they seems to compliment them seamlessly. The mouthfeel is awesome, perfectly medium bodied and slightly velvety. An awesomely unique IPA that I am glad to have available to me!
