joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 2, 2013
On tap at the brewery. It pours a rather dark orange/gold color with an off white head. The aroma is bready malt, a little dark fruit and floral hops. The flavor is caramel, bread, and some fruity/floral hops in the finish. Low carbonation. A bit weak on the palate for such a big beer. Ho hum.

sloshgator (347) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Lost Dog is a mix of bitter pale and maltiness with citrusy hop notes. Not much aroma but pour and amber color is nice. Not too bad but a little too much sweetness.

Onslow (1099) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Hazy reddish brown brew with small tan head. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is dominated by sweet malt, a little caramel and some bitter near the finish, but still ends very sweet. The ABV is well hidden.

thechandler (577) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a hazy amber-auburn color. Aroma is much sweeter than I expected. Very malty on the nose. Flavor is much of the same. Whoa nelly this has some malty sweetness that I didn’t expect for a 7.2% ale. You can definitely taste a flutter of the hop background but this is all kinds of sweet crystal malt going on here. Very nice.

We had this at the 2013 Tops of the Hops in the VIP section.Rob usually really likes reds, but he wasn’t a fan of this one. I, on the other hand, thought it was excellent. It was one of my favorite beers of the night, and we tried about 60!

milewide (1386) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Flavorful---not bland! Cloudy amber color with good head. Grainy malt flavor with rather unique, slightly sour finish. Solid body for an amber.
