Appearance: nice golden orange under a white head, solid and firm. Steady vibrant stream of bubbles.
Nose: crackers and melba, saltines and wafers. Grassy, orange and lemon skin – bright zest and brisk. A bit mild. Apple crisps.
Palate: mild around the edges, crisp and dry in the middle with apple, lemon, and orange skins. Green grass. Long lasting bitterness in the middle – classic, classy, and thirst inducing. Honey bread crisp sweetness along the sides. Opens up and blends together just right as warms up.
Final Thoughts: initially I wasn’t quite sure because I had to dig a bit for the nose and the flavors took a while to unravel, but unravel they did. If I were a Lost Sailor, I would gladly drink barrels of this IPA.
