A nice unfiltered IPA. Creamy thick head with a cloudy amber colored beer. Has an east coast aroma and a west coast taste. Long aftertaste and slightly dry.

MaxPower (961) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Pours a cloudy amber-copper with lots of particles floating around, nice creamy off white head that leaves some lacing in my glass. Typical citrus and pine aromas, citrus and pine flavors with some caramel. Medium bodied with a soft and creamy mouthfeel, finishes bitter, a pretty good IPA.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Poured a nice red amber with a THICK head and great lacing. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavor is great! This IPA is easy on the hops and that makes for an easy drinking refreshing beer. I want a case of this!!

Wow, this was fantastic. Tried alongside the Victory HopDevil, and quite frankly, this was my favourite. Theyíre both excellent, but I thought this one had just a bit more to offer, in terms of the breadth of its flavour. Itís not quite as bitterly dry as the HopDevil, and it has a more sweetly herbal flavour, perhaps with more malt than is common in IPAs. Very, very good.

Bottle. Light copper in color, nice white head that left good lacing on my glass. Aroma is fairly tame for an IPA, kind of floral, piney, and hoppy. Flavor is nice and hoppy and malty, some pine and citrus flavor in there, bitter start but finishes fairly sweet, a decent spectrum of flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth, ample body. Not a bad IPA, but a cut below Alesmith and Stone, the gold standards.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2005 Deep caramel color. Very thin, white head that dissipated almost instantly. Much more malt in the aroma than I expected. The mouthfeel is more carbonated than the beer appears to be at first. Very full, dark malty backbone -- much stronger than I expected in an IPA. Hops are still farily dominant, but a very balanced beer. Delicious.

pineypower (3050) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2005
Pours out a rather cloudy off-yellow color with a decent sized head and a nice noticible hop aroma. The taste is very well balanced and smooth with a nice amount of hops. A very drinkable brew!

For starters, with packaging like Lost Coastís, how can you not like them? As for the beer itself, this Indica is probably my favorite reasonably priced beer in Knoxville. Itís definitely hoppy, but I donít see that as a negative. I like to keep at least a few bottles of this around for anytime Iím in the mood for an IPA.

Odeed (1799) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 27, 2005
first off i like the name of this one.....anyway. the "indica" poured a cloudy orange with a bubbly white head that disapated after a few minutes.i got aromas of caramel,piney hops,and maybe some earth,or smoke?i really enjoyed the complexity of the flavor.alot of ipaís are way one sided with hops,but this had a nice caramel malt flavor to balance it out.this is very smooth,sweet,and hoppy .all at the same time.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2005
A deep rustic orange in color with a gigantic, sticky and awkwardly shaped head of foam. The aroma is far too subtle quite honestly with whiffs of spicy, resiny, piney hops, biscuits and caramel. Oily texture with an adequete malt backing, giving notes of caramel and fruit along with a jammy hop flavor with big grapefruit notes.
