I was at the Marriott bar and that had it on tap.

A: golden (hence the name),

S: some say its hoppy but I only had a hint of hop smell

T: light IPA, not very impressed

M: light, drinkable beer

O: It didn't blow me away or stand out for that matter. Although I did drink it!

Ive had a few Texas beers on my trip and not a giant fan in general. Im sure ill find one the I truly like.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

A: golden (hence the name), single finger head that dissipates relatively quickly but leaves a nice lacing, lots of carbonation bubbles at first but almost none after it settles

S: strong hop smell of grapefruit, pine, lemon; smells great!

T: good light IPA, not overboard on the hops (could use more dry hops in my opinion), slight bitterness that finishes dry. This is a good, session able beer, but I expected more.

M: light, low carbonation, good summer beer

O: overall, not a bad beer but for the price there are much better IPAs out there

UPDATE: I got a 6er of this beer again and found it to be extremely better than the 1st time I had it. I'm not sure if it's bottle-conditioned or varies bottle to bottle, but wow this is a great great beer. Thank you Real Ale.
