Lost Gold IPA
12oz bottle to English Pub pint
Best by 11.24.13
A – Thin head that quickly dissipated. Cloudy, can see a lot of sediments. Quite orange colored, slightly translucent. Not very appealing.
S – I get orange, pineapple, lemon and hay. A tiny bit of pine and something light like vanilla or coconut. The light smell is slightly earthy, making me lean toward coconut. I find myself wanting a little more pine in here. When I lightly swirl it, I pick up some momentary butter.
T – Some citrus and grass up front, butter with citrus in the middle, and some pine with a good low level of bitterness on the back end. After a few sips, I find myself liking this progression more than on the first sip. I do like the aftertaste quite a bit, the citrus and pine linger through without being too bitter.
M – Medium body, leaning toward the heavy side slightly. Even so, I feel like it keeps its distance from the tongue, making it feel artificially thin. Feels like a good carbonation level in the mouth despite just a wisp of head and a handful of bubbles. Finishes with a good dryness, slightly above average but not by much for an IPA. I’d like if some of the ‘weight’ in the mouth could be transferred to make the perceived mid sip feel a tad thicker (than thin).
D – Seems like an average IPA. Very fruity, but needing a bit more pine. Before I liked IPAs, I probably would’ve found this amazing; it’s definitely a gateway IPA, and for that it is laudable. However, I’m finding the balance to be off in STM. I think the malt level is pretty much good, but some more pine-bearing hops could be added.

Nice golden hue to the beer as an IPA should be. Has a nice hoppy IPA smell. Taste is definitely the way it should be. Brewed to perfection. Smooth hit on the palate. Nice and hoppy with a nice bitter bite at the end. Definitely a great Texas IPA. Impressed with real ale I a regular basis!

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.
