Bomber format Orange amber color. Off white, rocky head. Good body to head. Great retention. Nose is pine, orange, citrus, grapefruit, and caramel malt. Good aromatics. Taste is very pine and grapefruit forward. Moderate bitterness but does linger well. Good amount of resin. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. One of the few US IPAís that come here in really good nick and insanely fresh. One of the better beers lost coast makes

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours cloudy amber orange, two finger head, nice lacing and retention. Aroma of herbs and caramel. Taste is very balanced between the sweet malts and the herbal hops. Medium body, medium carbonation and sticky mouth feel. Finishes with hints of pine, licorice, sweet melts and grass. Itís OK.

355 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Looks:Translucent amber honey with no yeast sediments; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing with very slight carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant, quite fresh and sweet Ale malt, with grapefruit, strong jackfruits, floral nectar, molasses, very light pine, light yeast, lemon and grass.

Taste: Medium sweet Ale malt, with grapefruit zest, molasses, pine, resin, wood, light yeast, lime, quite strong bitter hops, and sharp grass.

Body: Close to medium; Slick and fairly oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: Quite good Ale maltyness, slick but not so thick. Grapefruit zest dominate complimented by nice sticky jackfruit aroma, good middle sweetness. Simple hop notes with good woodiness. Pretty nice!

Hoppiness: Fresh and sweet jackfruit, floral nectar and grapefruit in nose. Strong grapefruit zest, light pine, resin nice wood and lime in taste. Bitterness is mid-to-strong, tasty for a lasting astringent finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry. Very citrusy and nicely bitter to mouth.

Comments: This one seems to have everything fall into right places - fair maltyness, very floral and sweet tropical hoppy aroma and nice resin and bitterness. It just feels a little too simple in hop taste and not really spicy. Otherwise, this is a near-ace and very enjoyable indeed.

Bevuta da scaduta!!! Quindi poco indicativo il sapore in bocca in cui si sente líinizio della fase ossidativa del prodotto, ma che ne conserva i sentori erbacei e resinosi data dai luppoli . Ciononostante visivamente si presenta di un bel colr ambrato scuro con una schiuma generosa, compatta e persistente. Anche al naso Ť molto piacevole con l esplosione erbacea e fruttata riconducibile ai frutti a pasta gialla (pesca in primis!)

Was expecting a bit more "oomph" from this ipa. As other reviewers have said, it probably needs just a few more hops to give it a richer aroma and taste. Very pleasant nonetheless.

"i canít believe this one ranks as high as it does...in a word...boring. i like Lost Coast, but think this is their weakest brew. quail springs was a better english IPA...if this one is supposed to be a west coast version, it fails horribly. i want the aroma of an ipa to inspire me, this one does not. the flavor isnít bad, but far from special. more hops please!"
