COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Long Trail Double IPA offers true reward to those seeking intensely sensual hop flaovor. Double IPA is a full-flavored ale featuring a good malt backbone combined with an aroma brimming with tantalizing citrus and pine notes. In search of inspiration within, the recipe is sourced from one of Long Trail’s own, hop-enthusiast home brewers!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours a honey golden body with a white head. Huge sweet grapefruit and pure hop resins, a lighter pine quality and some citrus and alcohol. Viscous grapefruit and pine with a significant amount of alcohol to balance. This is well done, and a steel for the price, i could see some people not enjoying the large alcohol presence but its making my night right now.

smcolw (529) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Thick white head that leaves extensive lace after each sip. Really quite impressive. The liquid is cloudy with a yellow-gold color. Lots of grapefruit hop aroma. I can detect some alcohol in the nose as well. Strong bitterness (as expected) with notable alcohol oils. The malt is muted. Good richness with appropriate carbonation. Beware, this is an extremely easy IPA to drink.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle: Thanks JoeMcPhee! Hazy orange pour with a dense white film of head. Juicy fruity American hop aroma some amarillo-like character peachy notes & mild plasticy phenols. Average mouthfeel- a bit sweet for my liking. Lots of honey- under attenuated with sweet candied hop notes. Herbal chamomile notes and some vegetal character. More residual honey and artificial sweetener notes. Under attenuated.

blipp (5646) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours gold with a large off white head. Nice hoppy aroma with floral and citrus notes. The flavor is hop dominated as expected, with floral and citrus notes, fruity sweetness and some sweet malts. Very good and very drinkable.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2009
22oz bottle courtesy of ConnecticutPoet poured into a tulip. Pours a very light golden amber with massive fluffy white head that leaves spectacular lacing and remains a good cap for ages. It’s a beautiful looking DIPA. The aroma is full of bright citrus fruits, mainly grapefruit, lemons and pineapple and a pit of pine as well. There are also enough bready malts to even the hops out a little, but the citrus hops are the main draw. The taste has a definite a citrus hop kick up front, though it’s not quite as aggressively fruity as the aroma. The middle has more malts than the aroma would suggest, with a definitely toasted bready presence with hints of caramel. It’s the finish that’s most interesting though as it has a big pine resin stickiness that leaves a lingering bitterness on the palate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation and has plenty of sticky hops that build up after each sip. This is only my second Long Trail beer and I wasn’t impressed by the first one. This one, one the other hand, is a great beer. It’s got a very bright hoppy aroma but then gets much more resinous in the taste with a great sticky finish.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 13, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2009 My Bottom Line:
This amiable Double IPA offers lots of citrusy and wooden hop aromatics which segue into a light alcohol heat and a gripping resinous bitterness, as honeyed malts smoothly lay the foundations for further gulps.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sticks to the top of the hazy blond golden.
-The prickly bubbling leads to higher drinkability.
-I was prepared for a sipper, but this is very drinkable.
-The hop personality is striking and complex, delving into orangey, citrusy, coniferous, and sandy realms.

From bottles and from the tap at the brewery tasting room.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Pours dark orange with some head. Aroma is fruity juicy hops, very pleasant and surprising. Taste is quite nice, great fruity juicy hop flavors, almost tropical. No lingering bad flavors.

zach8270 (3217) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2009
(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy orange color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is dry and slightly hoppy with a nice citrus note as well. Flavor isn’t as hoppy and bitter as I thought it would be. Has a good bitterness up front mixed with a lot of citrus notes but the bitterness fades away. Pretty nice.
