The bottle's label presents two 'lost sailors' sitting in a boat in what looks like a desert, holding up a sign requesting more BBC beer. After just the first scent of this beer, one realizes that their request is perfectly understandable, as Lost Sailor is an all-around excellent IPA. A white head sits atop a cloudly, light-amber body. The nose is fantastic, with a powerful citrus (especially grapefruit) aroma, joined by elements of peach and perhaps apricot. Both notes are also present on the palate, with zesty citrus flavors (orange) giving way to a milder, distinctively peach-flavored finish, but not in a way that seems artificial, as this is just a regular ole' 'India Ale,' bitter to the end.

This beer, while appropriately bitter, does not provide the crazy explosion of hops provided by the big IPA's so celebrated these days. And that's part of what I like about it. A great, balanced beer by Berkshire -- one of my favorite IPAs.
