Tap @ Beer Kitchen in KC. Hazy orange appearance with a pearl white head. Citrusy, orangey hoppy nose on some sweet pale malts. Creamy citrusy hoppy IPA. The oak isn’t too overwhelming but an ok addition. Sweet citrusy hoppy finish.

On tap. Pours out a copper/amber topped with a medium white head. Aroma was nice with a good hop balance and sweet caramel. The oak was pretty present as well. Taste was more of the hops and caramel malts. The oak was very well done. I am not a big heavy oak fan I think it takes away from the beer, but this was a great balance.

Draft @ The Front Door: Pours a nice amber color with light head. The nose is hoppy and sweet with plenty of sappy hops and caramel malt notes, the oak is light but nice to balance things up. Toasty oak and light vanilla blend with the thick chewy hops. The mouthfeel is thick and it finishes sharp. I like what the oak aging did for this one.

One and a half liter bottle (It was actually a Fiji water bottle to be exact) filled in the wilds of the West, thanks big time to Timbo. The beer was perfectly persevered I think. Pours a copper color with a medium white head. A very sweet and fruity nose, light oak. The flavor has all of the regular Lost Continent; sweet rich caramel and fruity malts, not very bitter, but a very round easygoing smooth oakiness is obvious. Sweet and oaky. Very good. I think I drank half a liter at least. Smooth and tasty. Thanks Tim.

On tap at San Diego Brewing Co. Orange amber with a huge white head. Nose is yeasty and a high sharp hoppiness. "Lil fruitiness goin’ on too. Taste is sharp sweet to creamy, all while hitting you with alcohol. Super sharp. Gets smooth and warming as it warms in the glass. Gooey lace absolutely destroys the glass.

Sampled at Sunset Grill Allston. Pours a hazy gold with a white, lacing head. Aroma is mostly piney, citrus fruits, some light oak, a little herbal. Flavor is sweet, pine, citrus, wood pulp. Not too much oak. Well balanced. The oak adds an extra complexity.
