Full bodied for sure, this is nearly a barleywine in hop/malt balance. Pours dep and dark, with a pine overtone in the nose. Onward to the flavor, and we find the English style malting, with even some sourness detected. The forest is visible thru the trees. The finish is as average as they come.

I found this beer sitting in my collection, all the way at the bottom, in the corner, hidden from all light for probably 1 1/2-2 years....can you age Lost Coast Indica IPA...well, the answer is yes! This beer pours a dark ruby red color with a thick viscous creamy off pearlish head which left nice amounts of lacing, but dissipated within a reasonable time period. The aroma is full and sweet with citrus, pine, malt, twigs and leaves and almost an oaky aged quality...very sweet though. The flavor comes in medium to full bodied, and bitter from mid-taste on. Carbonation is fairly active. Some caramel and malt body, but overall syrupy piney tongue coating finish...dry and cottony. Pine-cone, citrusy, with a touch of grapefruit. This was pretty damn good for a box find, and I also found 2 more, so I think I have another beer to add to the session list!

Pours an orange/red color. Aroma consists of hops, citrus, sweetness, and a little bit of a piney smell. Rich tasting IPA. Lots of hops. Malty as well. A hint of sweetness/fruity flavor. Great balance of many flavors coming at you from all angles. Great quality Cali IPA.

This was nice. I found it on tap yesterday in Philly. The look of it was really terrific. The taste was rather sweet for an IPA, but I liked that. It was not overly bitter. Very good.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - DEC 16, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 (12 oz bottle: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA) Wonderfully flavorful IPA that features a big hoppy bitterness but a stellar, bold, malty flavor that stands toe to toe with the hops without flinching. A solid tea flavor and fruity sweetness nicely balance the bitterness. An earthy and gentle roastiness is very aromatic and is the dominant aroma in the nose. Nice, balanced mouthfeel with plenty of body and a roasty, but fairly crisp finish. Dark amber color is bordering on a light brown. Medium sized fluffy sediment is suspended in the beer and reminds me of Chemistry class experiments. Pours a full inch of rocky, off-white head that shows excellent retention and leaves a dense, full curtain of lace on the entire glass. Across the board, this is one damn fine brew!

Red orange ale with a thicj orangey head. Resinous hops and citrus in aroma, very classic and floral. Smooth and generous hops well balanced by malts. Body is thinner still a good IPA.

In Nevada, second only to Stone Brewery’s IPAs and bang for the buck. I’m not usually a fan of IPAs, but this is one of the better balanced ones that I have had. Still leaves a long lasting hops taste in your mouth. The higher ABV can sneak up on you.. its strong.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2004
Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Dark hazy golden body, shy white head. Looks hazy and unfiltered like a homebrew. Muted aroma of hops. Initial flavour is of green hop pellets, very resiny. Finish is of resin and a touch of underlying caramel malt. Humuliny hoppy residue lines on the palate. Pleasant, medium to full bodied mouth feel. Muted aroma and lack of more dominant citrus in the flavour makes me question the age of the bottle a bit after reading some other ratings. Shared with Rudolf in Buffalo.

Sweetish off-citrus malt nose. Caramel malts, bitter citrus & floral hops. Some alcohol in the nose. Sweet roasted caramel finish.

Yummie - I loved this one. Dark amber meat color. Hoppy a gogo - piney and, pockering on the roof of your mouth. Dry finish.Huge pine and grape nose. Complex and great.
