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.

Serving type: bottle

4.2/5  rDev +8.5%
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.
