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!

Quevillon (2503) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewery, on July 27, 2011. Golden blonde little head. Aroma of citrus hops slightly sour. Taste of dried hops, notes of citrus and herbs, rather bitter. Easy to drink but good!

Darkish orange pour with a nice off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma is earthy resinous pine with a kick of citrus. Some biscuity malt notes hanging out in there. Flavor is biting and bitter but evened out by a decent malt sweetness. Malt seemed a touch light for the hop intensity. Not quite balanced but really tasty. This one went fast.

kramer (4979) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2012
Bottle, Pours a clear orange body with a one finger fizzy off-white head that had pretty decent retention. Some nice lacing remained. The nose is citrusy and piney hops, but with a lot of malt sweetness as well that seems to temper things a bit. The flavor is similar to the nose, there’s a decent amount of hops in here, but the residual sweetness left from the malt really dulls the brightness of the hops. Not my ideal DIPA formulation. The finish is especially sweet and it lingers on for a very long time. Fairly full bodied and chewy from all the residual sugars with fizzy carbonation. Not a bad beer, but it’s not for me.

Cloudy and bubbly yellow orange, medium white head. Aroma is hoppy with a little pine although fairly subdued. Medium body, no alcohol. Up front bitterness, orange/lemon and grass. Then becomes more on the sweet side, not so much malt as just sweet which throws things off a little.

rob6239 (622) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
Pours amber in colour with a bit of a head that laces the glass. Has some good hoppy character. Very bitter, but doesn’t hide the alcohol content very well.

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.

ALCOHOLNIZM (164) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - AUG 17, 2010
POURS AND LOOKS LIKE A RUN OF THE MILL GOLDEN BEER. AROMA IS OF SPICY/SWEET FLORAL HOPS. NICE BITTER HOPS FLAVOR MIGHT BE A LITTLE LIGHT TO THE SEASONED BEER DRINKER . STILL QUITE REFRESHING. GOOD AS MOST DOUBLE IPA’S ARE, YET NOT STANDING OUT IN THE CROWD.

Elwood (3176) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 29, 2011
Serving: 22 oz. bottle at Fireworks. It pours a nice gold color with a small, white head. The nose is a bit fusel with lots of herbal hops. The flavor comes across as a little unrefined and raw with florals, grain, alcohol, and lots of bittering hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation leading to a long and bitter finish. Just okay.
