Thanks davacano for this bottle from the Refreshing Summer BIF.
Real Ale Lost Gold IPA is a golden apricot beer with a quickly leveling white head that leaves just a wisp on the edge of the glass. There is a little bit of sediment that leaves just a bit of haze. The beer smells slightly piney with orange peel and a fair bit of malt. The beer is resinous at first with a sweet tangerine juice middle and a lingering bitterness at the end. There is a little bit of sweet malty caramel, but overall, dry. The hop flavor in this beer is definitely underwhelming for an American IPA, when Blind Pig and Sculpin are in the same category. The beer is pretty solid, but not great, but I'll definitely enjoy another.

Another Real Ale Brewing Co.,this IPA has a nice malty flavor for an IPA and at 62 IBU is up there a bit. As a "hop-head" this is not over the top but it has a very nice taste and is a beer you wouldn't mind having a few, especially on a warm, summer night in New England.

A: hazy, really hazy like a heff. bronze burnt color, nice lacing that doesn't give up.
S: for an IPA this beer is not a bomb, it's a pleasant hop aroma, not in your face by any means . Hops are citrus and pine smelling.
T: firm malt backbone, lots of bread tones. Tasted like it had a lager malt, checked and it has been brewed with Vienna malts. Great toasted flavor.
M: lighter than most IPA'S. a few bubbles not a heavy beer or sweet. Clean finishing with a lingering bitterness.
O: overall I rated this beer high, a 4. Why? I think there are many awesome IPA'S out there that have full flavored sweet profiles ie lagunitas brown Shuga, little sumpin also dogfish head 120 minute. This is the first one that I have tried that has gone a different way with a different mouthfeel that has actually been good. Actually really good. I am sure there are others but I haven't tried them yet. Good beer different approach.
