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 Trailís own, hop-enthusiast home brewers!

Courtesy of Summer Secret Santa 2012! 040212 2079: The label has a dark color scheme rather than what we see on this website. Moreover, I would have never thought this to be a strong IPA. The aroma has at first, notes of sweat, grain, pine, and citrus. The body has minimal lacing and barely any head -- what head remains is very soapy. Contrary to what the brewery suggests, a more vigorous pour will provide a more sightly appearance. So, the mouthfeel is nice, but not as lively as I want it to be. Overall, where it counts to me, is its taste: It seems that the yeast is the most interesting aspect of this beer, which as an IPA, this is disappointing, but as a beer to enjoy, I enjoy it. I like this beer, but I donít like this beer as a strong IPA. However, there is a nice and dry, piney finish, but (again, another "but") with a note like of an egg white -- believe it or not, this is an interesting beer that I enjoyed and Iím glad Iíve tried it, but I donít care to try it again.

Pours amber in colour with a bit of a head that laces the glass. Has some good hoppy character. Very bitter, but doesnít hide the alcohol content very well.

I typically dont care for double IPAs, but Longtrail hit it out if the park. Beautiful golden pour with a perfect head, great hoppiness without the bitterness, long sweet finish that coats the palate.

From the big bottle marked: 06011. It pours pure golden with a generous off-white cream-colored head that simmers and settles. The aroma is a bevy of scents including pale malts, yeast, wheat, citrus, and earthy and pine hops. The body is medium and very smooth. The taste was a delicate, mellow balance of sweet malts, earthy hops, yeast, and even a little orange peel. The alcohol is well integrated into the beer so much that the 8.6% ABV is not noticeable. A very fine brew from Long Trail.

scarletfire65 (952) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2012
22 oz. Bomber. Pours a bright orange, high solid head, decent lacing left behind. Lots of large caked up yeast sediment, be careful with your pour. The aroma is of fresh citrusy hops, honeysuckle, peaches, pine. Full bodied and chewy. Very sweet underneath, lots of tropical fruit, floral hops, pine, and a distinct leathery taste on the finish, probably a touch of brett. Heavy IBUís. Alcohol perfectly hidden. Well done.

Typical Vermont Beer...Great Hoppy taste. Smooth after taste. Smoother and more distinguishable than the Heady Topper, and a step up from the Double IPA from Rock Art (not their finest work). If you do not like the smell or taste of strong hops, stay away and do not write a poor review for a beer that you do not understand.

Draft at the White Horse Tavern in Newport, RI. Excellent hop profile, citrus and floral flavors abound. Tasted really great in the ambiance of the White Horse Tavernís bar with great notes from the young bartender there that night. Felt like I could have been having one with the early settlers of Rhode Island.

On tap at Gilly's Craft Beer & Fine Wine. Clear, orange copper amber with decent sized, cream colored l, creamy head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit, floral hops and caramel malt. Taste of floral hops, pineapple, citric and grassy hops and some caramel sweetness. Medium body and high carbonation with creamy, spritzy, foamy mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours surprisingly light for a DIPA with very little head. Not much of an aroma of anything. Same goes for taste. Thereís a little bit of citrusy hops but if you blink youíll miss it and itís almost overwhelmed by a big yeast bomb. I would give this to somebody who has never had a DIPA to trick them into drinking something stronger/better next time.
