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!

Nearly the perfect beer for lovers of IPA and its only $3.99 for a large format/bomber bottle. Smooth yet a complicated palate. Great after taste. My favorite beer as far as bang for your buck.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2009 bottle courtesy of zathrus13. hazy apricot color with nice lil suspended particulates. small orange head. apricot and sweet peach nose with some good hops hanging on the end. a very big hop hit is very smooth, and very warm on the way down from the hop concentration. light fruity finish that blends nicely into a hop bomb aftertaste. sweet full creamy body through the entire palate. this would be great for a winter camping trip, very nice!

Pours an light amber orang color with a thin white foam head. Has some life to it. Has an aroma of grapefruit and pine with a nice hit of caramel. A very creamy DIPA. Very smooth. Has a nice sweetness up front with a creamy body and nice bitters on the back end. Very good brew.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a hazy golden body doesnít allow any carbonation to be seen rising. Beautiful light foamy lacing clings to the sides of my snifter. A decent sized white head appears and lasts for a good minute. The smell had a spectacular combination of hops and malts, citrus, pine. The taste was pretty much the same and yet a vivacious sweet orange/apricot/peach comes out and really makes a superb taste. Some sugary malts present themselves in this as well. The palate was about a medium with a great creamy citrus aftertaste and finish, slightly sessionable. Overall, this had a great balance on all levels and is a solid brew that I would have no problem coming back to. Iíll go out on a limb and say this is the best brew Iíve ever had by Long Trail. Well done!

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!

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.

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.

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.
