Another blind review for me since I'm determined not to dislike a beer simply for it's style, or in some cases, brewer. Those that know me, know I usually recoil in horror at IPA's and go screaming back to a stout. This beer is the most tolerable IPA I've found. The girls at Lost Coast have not let me down.
Cloudy is not what I've experienced in most IPA's, but maybe it's what the others have been lacking. This was enough like a witbier that I found it almost pleasant. There was a fine, soapy head that just lingered around the edge.
The smell was a boquet of hops with just a hint of maltness that took the hoppy edge off.
A bit sweeter than others I've tried, the hops were nicely balanced with the hint of malt. I only noticed bitterness at the end of the taste which pretty much encompassed my tongue.
Pleasant and crisp, I didn't really notice any alcohol harshness until I was nearly finished with the glass. It was warming toward the end.
While I find IPA's hard to drink as a rule, this is one I will try again.
