Lost Ghost Hazy DIPA

Review Date 11/13/2020 By John Staradumsky

Oh man, here it is November 10th of 2020 and I’m drinking a beer I should have enjoyed a few weeks ago: Lost Coast Lost Ghost Hazy DIPA. The beer is part of the brewery’s Graveyard Series, and I mean ghosts, graveyards? Should have drunk it on Halloween. I didn’t though, and there’s nothing to be done for that. Good news is it still tastes, well, tasty.

Lost Coast Lost Ghost Hazy DIPA is a tropical fruity bomb, but don’t take my word for it. The label says:

Lost Ghost Hazy Double India Pale Ale

A wildly fruity tropical Hazy Double IPA. With pineapple, mango, and citrus aromas and flavors amalgamate for a bright and refreshing DIPA.

Lost Coast beers are not sold here in Georgia, but I ordered this bottle from Craftshack.com for $4.49. Total Wine sells the beer for $12.99 a six-pack (but not in Georgia). That seems a buck or two higher than the beer should command. Lost Coast Lost Ghost Hazy DIPA has an alcohol content of 8% by volume with 35 IBUs. My bottle is stamped BOT 04/23/20, and I received it from Craftshack on 6/29. It’s been in my beer fridge ever since.

Lost Coast Lost Ghost Hazy DIPA pours to a hazy orange color with a thick fluffy head and a juicy pineapple and mango nose. A thick layer of Brussels lace forms on the sides of my glass and follows the liquid to the bottom. Taking a sip, the beer is light to medium in body with more tropical fruity pineapple and mango along with a bit of citrus zest. A balancing to slightly more than balancing and a bit of warming alcohol.

I enjoyed this, I am less a fan of the tropical fruity IPAs than I am the piney-resiny citrusy ones, but I do enjoy them on occasion. I would buy this again if I had the chance.

And remember, try a new beer today, and drink outside the box.
