A cloudy amber beer with a creamy sticky head. Quite the floral aroma with that distinct spicy, raw, citrus and leafy character of East Kent Goldings. Flavour is near sugary sweet, malty and smooth on the palate with a balancing leafy tea-like hop character with a nice woody bite.

A damn fine IPA, and one of the best in MA. This IPA really appeals to me because it shows off both a big malt and big hop character, but the beer is so in balance and the flavours are so smoothed together.

4.2/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle. Picture of the two brewers lost in the desert in a boat … hence “Lost Sailor”. Freshness date marked.

Appearance: Deep orange amber with a slight chill haze which is common for this beer, with a moderate pour it formed a tiny bubbled two fingered head … that shows the quality of the brew.

Smell: Sweet to the nose of flowery fruity hop oil and a pale malt back ground. Slight minty aroma also from the hops, very aromatic.

Taste: Muscular medium body with a light carbonation and smooth mouth feel that throws a handful of crispness in the mouth. Round malt palate of pale malt sweetness and toasted grain, faint esters leave a mild berry fruitiness behind. Hops a quite prevalent though certainly not overbearing, bitterness is marked to balance and produces a wonderful hop flavour of sweet floral, hop leaf and a pinch of earth. Hop flavour and remnants of toasted grain faded very so softly into the finish.

Notes: One of the better domestic English Style IPAs I have had in a long time, well balanced and poised as a session beer.

a. Pours a cloudy golden orange, which settles into a clear golden color. One finger head which thins to a floating layer covering a good portion of the top of the beer.

s. Honey, wheat - not hoppy

t. Honey present int he front, and a grassy finish (like mower clippings).

m. Easy drinking beer. Mild carbonation.

o. Not sure I would revisit, maybe on a hot day with little other offerings. I have enjoyed other beers from this brewer, but this is not their best offering.

22 oz bomber from Liquors inc. poured into a standard Guinness pint glass. Best by 2/11/14

A - pours golden and clear, with a fluffy one finger head. Moves to a thin lace.

S - pine, bread. Not much else.

T - biscuity malts, very faint hop presence. Mild zest. Zest. Yep. That's the first time using that word on a beer description.

M - decent, medium heft

O - good offering, was expecting more hops, but I enjoyed it.
