COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lost Continent Double IPA has an astonishing three pounds of hops per barrel in the kettle and another pound per barrel of "dry-hops" added after fermentation, bringing this beer to 90+ IBUs. Starting with an original gravity of 22˚ Plato (1.088 SG), this is a full-bodied beer weighing in at 8.0% ABV. The hops provide citrusy, resinous spiciness, making this beer a great match for any bold food. Try it with prime rib, Cajun blackened pork or chicken, Thai, Indian or Vietnamese cuisine.

truegen (167) - Puyallup, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2009
12oz. foil-topped bottle. Very little head on the pour. Murky golden color. Aroma was on the sweet side, which was a little troubling for a brew aiming to be a hop monster. More hops are present in the flavor, thank goodness, although there is still a lot of malt sweetness pervading. Allowing the beer to warm a bit after pouring does cut this impression a bit. Thereís a fair amount of citrus and pine tang on the back of the tongue, but the overall mouthfeel is just a bit lacking. I wonder if letting this one sit for about 4-6 months might help it out a bit. Not bad, but needs some refining.

Tide (1695) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Draught at Westend Tavern. Hazy amber color, white head. Bitter taste with floral hops, citrus, resin, pine and mango. Bitter finish with citrus, hops, mango and resin. Excellent double IPA.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 28, 2014
Hazy dark copper under a foamy and sticky white head. Lovely aroma with lemon zest and floral/grassy fresh hop aroma and a touch of resinous dankness. Bright and delightful flavor bursting with complex hoppiness. It starts with a bright and piney/lemon sharpness thatís quickly quelled by a resin and floral hop tone, a touch of mango and tropical eccentricity, and a slightly boozy pale malt backbone. Quaffable for its strength, but boozy enough to warn you. Nicely done.

Smoother than I expected. Definitely has a hoppy aroma and taste - pine and citrus - copper color - expected it to be a little stronger but still good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Review from notes on 07/17/10 A2: Bottled 5/23/11,reviewed 27JUL11 A: No head, appears flat, which I didnít expect given the freshness of this beer. Beer is dull in clarity, slightly misty. Lacing evident on wall as glass is emptied, but nonetheless, unimpressive. (2) A2: Pours a copper ale with a single finger of peanut head which falls to a tortuous sheet of the same. Cobweb lacing. Limited Clarity. (3.5) S: Lots of PNW hopping here! Citrus, pine, sheetgrass, grapefruit frosts the crystal malts over this beer. (4) S2: Pine, mint, grapefruit, juicy fruit; all make the hops. The malts are sweet and floury. (4) T: Well balanced, bitterness matches level of sweetness in this beer. The finish encourages tongue to dispute whether you taste bitterness or sweetness, nice balance. (3.5) T2: The hop profile here is flavor dominant, very sweet and floral. There is a definite bitterness, but it seems subdued by the malts and hop profile. Plenty of biscuit and hints of toffee on the malt side of things. The hops seems just a little ill-defined. (3) M: Sharp feel on tongue, the bitter teases the tongue to dryness only to be again weaned toward the sweetness of the late hops. (4.5) M2: Medium bodied with higher carb than preferred for the style. Dry. (3.5) D: Good DIPA. Worth at least one try. Well balanced, which I donít think DIPAís usually are. (3) O2: Iím less impressed with this than I was a year ago. A little too sweet for the style. I find their imperial red more hoppy than this. (3) Serving type: bottle 12-23-2010

stevoj (2024) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 23, 2013
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Guest tap at Crooked Fence. Foamy active pour settles into nice golden hue with creamy head. Plenty of IBUs to go around, but not enough to make you pucker. Relatively smooth for a double, easy to drink and enjoyable.

strattonspeaks (113) - Springfield, Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours hazy golden orange with thin white head. Pine, citrus, some malt sweetness up the snout. Taste was a little underwhelming for me after the big nose. Orange rind, some spice. Nice bitterness on the back end leads to dry finish. Pretty solid beer but expected bigger.

wlajwl (3771) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Aroma is fruit/syrup, light citrus and a hint of pine/grass. The flavor is citrus, fruit, slight syrup notes and a low and lingering bitterness in the finish.

thechandler (577) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Pours a hazy peach-copper color. Aroma is incredibly fruity with wonderful full notes of orange and lemon. Flavor isnít as overwhelming as I expected given the full aromas. Still very powerful with great orange notes. Fantastic IIPA that doesnít overwhelm.

ABUSEDGOAT (2336) - California, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Hazy amber color, decent sized head, good lacing and retention. Aroma reminds me of Sculpin IPA - grapefruit, citrus, pine, some tropical fruit, light caramel malt backing. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, enjoyable.
