Real Ale Lost Gold IPA has a medium, off-white head, and a hazy, yellow-orange appearance, with lots of bubble streams, tiny brown specks floating about, and a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is strongly of sweet, grapefruit and maybe some sweet, white bread. Taste is the same, with robust bitterness up front. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Real Ale Lost Gold IPA finishes dry, refreshing, and relatively easy drinking. Overall, this is excellent. Check it out, if you ever see it.

Warm and spicy brew that is on the friendlier side of the IPA spectrum. Pours a handsome golden amber with an orange tint. Lots of foam in the Saxo tall tulip. Spritzy and a little sharp on the tongue.

Nice flowery aroma with a touch of resins. Pleasantly malty without being too sweet, but it's definitely on the mellow side. The hops are just bitter enough to balance the sweetness. Lots of aromatics with pineapple and citrus flavors. Totally drinkable. Maybe this the wave of less extreme IPAs that give you lots of hops without the crush-your-head-with-a-rock bitterness. Cheers to Texas! From the 12 oz bottle bought at Texas Wine Cellars in Fredericksburg.
