orange/lemon undertone, sweet taste, slightly hoppy, medium body, refreshing, floral profile- a bit too much floral notes, overall interesting combination, it was good but not great.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. A cloudy orange-yellow with a half-finger of creamy beige froth on top. Smells like tropical fruit, citrus, and fresh pine along with a tinge of toffee sweetness. Descriptions of this brew seem to vary. I am getting considerable melon and canned peach flavors, with the pine from the nose subdued on the palate and a more mellow grapefruit note in the background. Malts are indeed robust, toffee-like and almost a little toasty. Not particularly pungent, herbal, "dank", or resinous but not bland either. Fruity first and foremost, at least in terms of the hops. Sturdy body with a sweetish iced tea like finish. Enjoyable enough but do not expect anything too assertive.

Mild fruity nose. Hoppy without being overly bitter. Citrusy and a little sweet. Very drinkable and reasonably priced.

Had higher hopes for this one. No pun intended. It starts a bit buttery actually but it does find a way to adjust itself after about 2 pints. It is not overly strong in a hoppy way so it is certainly drinkable. Matched it up with a darker beer on tap so it was a good option. Just not quite finished to where you would think it would be.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Finally getting around to reviewing this IPA from Lost Coast Brewery. Acquired a single bottle of this stuff from the local Binny's, so I'm confident that it's fresh.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a cloudy golden orange body with two frothy fingers of doughy off-white head. Lots of very fine sediment visible in the glass. This beer is filtered? Either way, it leaves nice thin strands of lacing behind.

S - The aroma is more malty than I would have imagined. Lemony, herbal, floral, & grassy. Lemon tea leaves and caramel malt. It's a very pleasant aroma, but it's not quite what I was expecting.

T - Hops are more prominent in the taste than on the nose, though it is more earthy, herbal, & grassy than I remembered and not as bitter. A strong sweetened caramel malt foundation has a strong presence as well.

M - The feel is sticky, sweet, & bitter. Dry, piney, hoppy, and resinous. Medium-full bodied with nice carbonation.

Overall, the sweetened caramel malt is a little more prominent than I remembered, but luckily for these guys, I appreciate that sort of thing. Definitely a tasty and very drinkable IPA, one I will surely have again.

Lost Coast Indica India Pale Ale -----4/5.
