*From notes

-- Nice label, guys --

A: Cloudy 24k gold in hue, like most respectable West Coast IPA's should be. A generous pour yields a two finger white head that lingers and clings to the walls of the glass for some time.

S: Really juicy and luscious hops. I get some fresh, golden malt as well. I know LR was looking to create a West Coast IPA, and the nose is certainly leaning in the right direction.

T: Very juicy, though it could use more hop oil on the mid to finish, as it's just a bit stunted. But in the end, this is generously fruit forward, though a bit sweet on the finish. Again, the only knock here is that I wish the hops would linger a bit longer.

M: Right on. Well done here for sure. It's got a smooth, approachable texure with medium carbonation and lighter to medium weight.

O: Welcome to the party, Lost Rhino. I'm happy to say that this is one of...actually it may just be the best beer LH has yet to make. I hope that they return to this, as it'd be a sin to keep the good folks of Northern Virginia and beyond from this solid hoppy offering.

A: This poured a cloudy gold with moderate white head.
S: It smelled like lemon zest and grapefruit, with some sweet honey and bitter resin.
T: It tasted like bitter citrus zest and resin, with some sweet honey and a bit of floral hops. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation. Very nice full body.
D: This had a good scent and better taste, with huge body and a clean crisp finish. So easy to drink and enjoy, even if not earth shattering. Solid brew.

Visited the brewery today and picked up a bottle of this on the way out. Awesome label!

Served in a DFH ribbed condom glass.

A: Obviously, this was unfiltered. Very, very murky, lighter than tangerine color, with a decent head that died down fast.

S: Very faint, maybe some puffs of yeast and citrus.

T: Really nice hop component... surprisingly good! Neither West nor East coast in its disposition... right in the middle. Grapefruit was there but not heavy, mandarin orange is more the theme of the day here.

M: Not thick or sugary in the least and not booze heavy at all. The lacing was moderate.

O: Really nice, all-around drinker. I'd buy this again for $6.50!

Beautiful menagerie of hops on the nose. Freshly plowed fields with sweet wildflowers, bursting with fresh citrus and honey.

MIG pours out a somewhat opaque honey color, rimmed with a white head that dissipates quickly, but leaves a nice circle around the edges. Lacing is a bit spotty, but pretty.

Flavors of honey, lime, orange, orange zest, and slightly grainy on the finish. It's somewhat juicy, and all the flavors meld incredibly nicely. Quite flavorful and delicious!

Moderate carbonation and body on this one to match. It's not a sipping beer, but its not a session beer. I wouldn't drink too much of this in a sitting, but it would be tempting as it makes me delirious with joy. I need another.
