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!

2009-05-02. Golden orange amber body with a small white head. (3+) Interesting hoppy aroma has a leafy character and in interesting hoppy layer that seems new to me (different kind of hops perhaps?) but gets milder as it goes. (7+) Flavour is milder than expected. Pleasant hoppiness throughout, light bitterness. Hops are again a bit different from what I am used to and again make me wonder what kind were used. Mild base malt. Subtle, touches of citrus and very light resin. (7+) Average palate is smooth but feels a touch light for a double IPA. Quite pleasant, and an interesting twist but lacks the oomph I usually want from a double IPA. Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo. Shared by DuctTape.

Light gold-copper pour with a thick white head. Great, clean citrus hop aroma. More clean orange peel, lightly sweet flavor. Very nice.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2009
Bomber. Clear amber color with a large, foamy head. Aroma of pineapple, apricot and floral hoppiness. A little citrus (sour oranges) in the taste. Taste was never bitter, but surprisingly not too sweet. Finishes dry and fruity. I need to buy a few more of these. At $3.50/bomber, you really can’t lose.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a medium creamy/foamy white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of grapefruit and other citrusy hop notes, pine and floral. Caramel and doughy malt with a touch of nut character. Flavor of caramel and toffee malt notes with the same grapefruit and floral/pine hop flavor. Nice dry finish, hop bitterness is appropriate. Well done double ipa.

Sregnar35 (952) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Pretty good stuff. Pours a nice thick yellow orange. Aroma is hoppy enough. Flavor is fresh hops, not a ton, but fresh, finished stale but sweet.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Bottle. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit hoppiness, grapefruit seed in particular, as well as bready malt. Flavor really picks up the hop intensity with lots of mango, again very tropical fruity overall. Dry. Luscious, and at $3.99 a bomber (or less some places), possibly the best deal on the market.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2009
From a 22oz bottle this gem pours a cloudy orange with a nice foamy white head and lots of lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus and hops (and more hops). Very, very drinkable with a nice hoppy grapefruit taste with a little spice to boot. This was a great beer - much better than I expected even if I have always enjoyed Long Trail from my days of living in New England. Thanks to Brian for bringing it back from the brewery on his visit home to Vermont!

On draft at Capones. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, and bitter hops. Taste of pine, grapefruit, bitter hops and a touch of honey.

LilBeerDoctor (3413) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2009
Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with some sediment and a thick, fluffy white head that leaves pretty lacing on the glass. Aroma of resiny hops at first then tons of tropical fruits and citrus. Wow, this smells really good! Flavor of lots of citrus, some melon, and a nice hoppy finish. This is a super tasty IPA. Reminds me of the Flossmoor Station IPAs in terms of flavor/aroma profile. At $3.50 a bomber, this is a steal! 9/4/8/4/16 (4.1/5)
