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.

shotgunn (34) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Pours a nice orange color with a thin white head that has minimal lacing. The smell is sweet w/hardly and hint that this is supposed to be a Double IPA, almost no pine/citrus hop characters. First taste is sweet then some floral hop afternotes come through, but nothing that I was expecting. Overall this is a fine beer that I am positive will be enjoyed by many, but as for this "hophead" it does nothing for me. To me it is closer to a European style IPA than something I would expect from an American craft brewery. Maybe Iím in the wrong but itís just my thoughts.

Bottle. Golden/copper with small off white head. Aroma of pine and resinous hops and some light biscuit notes. Medium/heavy body, medium resinous hop bitterness, slight soapiness, light fruit notes, and a dry finish.

RSRIZZO (1871) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2014
12oz bottle (Courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40į. Color is a hazy golden orange with very active carbonation and a bunch of floaties bouncing around. It has a small off white whip cream like head. Aroma is sweet fresh hops. It has a bold medium body with a smooth rich mouth feel. Flavor is rich and malty with fruit, then citrus giving it a mellow bitterness. In the after taste the alcohol almost comes out with a note of oak. Overall its an interesting brew, there is defiantly an oak taste in there but no mention of oak by the brewer and very malt heavy. In the end I like it.

"after a solid review from friends, i was expecting close to greatness, and this one was simply good. next to Pliny it wasnít close, but i would have enjoyed it solo. decent grapefruity hop character in the aroma and flavor. a touch thin bodied, next to the big chewy Elder at least. Solid brew."

12 oz. can courtesy of Lectvay. Bottled date 3/20/14. Aroma is very fruity with pineapple, grapefruit and light traces of pine. The dry hopping does great things even for a older bottle.

The main base of the beer shows light caramel malt backing with notes of straw. The flavor is still really nice. Floral, hints of grass, subtle grapefruit and hints of pine resin rounding off the hop flavors. Bitterness lingers only slightly. The texture is dry over the tongue with a lighter side of medium body. After finishing the bottle, I very easily could have reached for another one. Rather easy to drink with no trace of 8% ABV.

Tide (1880) - 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 (4577) - 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
