From my tasting notes: I had the Lost Gold on draft and it poured a golden amber with decent white head. It is definitely a maltier IPA which gives it a good balance, but it could have used a bit more hops punch for my tastes. I don't mean to take away from the Lost Gold as it is a fine beer and a good local IPA option. Ultimately this is another great offering from Real Ale that is definitely worth your time and taste-buds.

Pours a hazy, copper/orange color. 1/3 inch head of a an off-white color. Good retention and great lacing. There is also some suspended sediment. Smells of citrus hops, slight alcohol, sweet malt, hop oil, and a hint of earthy malt. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight floral hops, hint of hop oil, sweet malt, and a hint of earthy malt. Overall, good feel, good body, and good blend.

A- This one's a big globe of pretty orange with the cloudiness of a fogged over window. About a finger of pretty white head rises above the beer with a bunch of larger bubbles that add to the prettiness.

S- A lot of pine is my first impression. There's some nice caramel and malty sweetness like a cinnamon bun, and orange notes, as if that cinnamon bun is topped with orange frosting.

T- Really nice balance of hopiness and maltiness. Pine and grapefruit pith, and orange rind in the back of the tongue. Wheat bread, orange soda, and a hef esque spiciness on the front of the tongue. The melding between these two aspects is really nice.

M- I'd say it's bitter, not overly so, but on the higher end for an IPA. The bitterness doesn't neccesarily match the flavor profiles though so it's a little unexpected.

O- A really nice IPA and one of the best out of Texas.

Sampled on tap at the Freetail-Real Ale barrel-aged festival in San Antonio.

The beer pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is a great mix of hops. I get citrus and pine. This definitely smells like an American IPA. The flavor is pine with a lot of juicy oranges notes. There is also some caramel malt to stop the beer from being too bitter. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

on-tap, the Ginger Man in Dallas

cellphone notes

appearance: served in standard pint - body is straw-golden and a bit lighter than many other examples of the style, foamy beige head with nice lacing

smell: pulpy, adequately hopped, notes of lemon zest and white pepper

taste: i liked this IPA - certainly had hit of orange and lemon zest that provided a sharp but controlled citrus taste. This one also came across a bit grassy with 6.6% being hidden quite well

mouthfeel: medium-light

Drinkability: nice
