Lost IPALost IPA
BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Burley Oak Brewing Co.
Maryland, United States
burleyoak.com

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
We scrapped all of the traditional recipes, drank a few beers, and completely lost ourselves in deep conversation about the perfect IPA - the one we could drink all the time. We stripped down our preconceived notions of how an IPA is typically crafted and instead built a recipe that would be the ultimate showcase of the most expressive hops available to brewers today. We were lost...and now we are in love.

Friend from out of town left this 16 oz. can with me; never had anything from this brewery before. Dated 11/20/18.

The pour is tepid NE IPA, orange, but without the juiciness or vibrancy of your typical nor’easter. The nose is mild reaching towards water: vague, barely fruity.

Lost IPA is weak tea. Just like the nose, this seems watery & unfinished. Fruit? Some fruit in the background. No bitterness. Thinnnnnn. Unappealing.

This beer has either done a Thelma & Louise off a cliff in six weeks, or it’s just bad. Right now, it’s in flames at the bottom of the cliff. Early front-runner for worst beer of 2019. To the sink.

A: The beer is very hazy to nearly cloudy yellow in color. It poured with a short bright white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cantaloupe melon are present in the nose along with hints of pine.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional flavors such as tangerines and mangos to go along with the cantaloupe melon and pine, the latter of which is most noticeable in the finish. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA combines the juicy mouthfeel of a New England IPA with the bitterness of a traditional IPA.

Serving type: can

Just over 2 fingers of pebbly white bubbles forms atop a cloudy orange. Spider webbed lace forms down the glass. Tiny bubbles cling all over the sides of the beer.

Love the nose. Fruity, kiwi scents, ripe melon, and maybe some lemon lime. Hop presence is floral and somewhat subdued but the fruit really shines.

Flavor follows the nose. Melon and kiwi dominate. Maybe a tiny bit of mango too. Bitterness is on the backend. I think there’s a good bit of pale malt in here to balance the hop bite.

The mouthfeel might be the best feature, for all the carbonation this drinks like silk. Alcohol presence is completely masked. This is soooo crushable for 7%.

It’s easy to get “lost” in this beer. Could easily down 2 of these before the abv kicks in. The fruits, hops, and mouthfeel are well balanced. 2 for 2 in my Burley Oak experience.

Canned on 9-24-18
L: Pours smooth ..little head. Lacing is hit or miss around the glass.
S: Ripe stone, mild citrus fruits.
T: Stone fruit upfront.. then loses flavor into the fruit side.
F: Smooth ..as in silky. Very very little carbonation. Light bitterness.
O: Would be a topnotch beer if not for the lack of flavors for a 7.2% ABV.

[IMG] Starting with a little juice this morning thanks to @jzeilinger for this ripe can from Burleyoak Brewing Lost IPA. Poured into a 13 oz Weyerbacher tulip giving to me from JZ also, first of many he has sent me over the last 2 years. This pours a very hazy orange yellow with a billowy white head that leaves massive patches of lace, with excellent retention. 4.5

Smell is loaded with ripe tropical fruit, apricot, guava, mandarin orange, pineapple, honey dew, and a gentle hit of grapefruit. 4.25

Taste follows tropical front to back, mellon, apricot, and guava most prominent, with a little grapefruit bitterness in the slightly sticky finish. 4.25

Mouthfeel is bigger than average, plenty of life but fairly soft, not dry but juicy, and extremely drinkable at 7.2%. 4.75

Overall this is outstanding I would drink this often if I had access. Cheers all. 4.25
