hfmejias (783) - Dover, Delaware, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, copper in color, very nice off white head and tons of lacing. Aroma of fruit, hops and malts (quite nice). Taste, after the nice aroma it is a bit of a disappointment, it does feels a bit watered down, don’t get me wrong, you get the nice bitterness of a proper IPA and some of the maltiness but it seem a bit toned down. Not. Bad, just not great.

trapped (869) - New York City, TURKEY - NOV 17, 2014
Draught. Light amber color with off-white spongy head that dissipates quite fast, floral hops aroma, medium carbonation, lavender like flavor, hoppy taste, medium finish. A very balanced IPA.

Foxbush (1306) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2014
12 oz bottle The IPA poured cloudy light amber with an off white head and lacing. It may have been too cold so I let it warm up. You are greeted with aromas of pine and citrus. The IPA had a medium body with average to active carbonation. Assertive hop bitterness pushes through the malt base for a pleasant, dry finish. This is nice IPA for all time. Great balance of ABV and bitterness.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle shared by Adam. Aroma is some melon, grass, and a noticable malt. Pours amber with a nice big head. Taste is dank citrus, some pine resin, grass, and a big malt back. All in all, nice balance but ends up being muddled with the malt. Tastes like a really good homebrew but nothing more. Wasn’t impressed but maybe mine was old.

Darwenus (562) - Virginia, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Actually a really good, balanced IPA. It pours a clear golden color with average head and lace. The aroma is malt, a little honey, some pine hops, and spice. The flavor adds caramel, citrus, and a fairly strong, bitter finish. I’ll buy this again.

probstblueribbon (3008) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Sample at Syracuse Beer Fest. Beautiful pineapple and banana, a pine note, a little caramel malt. Similar flavour with juicy fruitiness and a bit of pine, light caramel support, a little dank and cat pee, moderate bitterness.

MrBunn (2480) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle. Pour is kind of a dingy good with a fluffy white head and aromas of honey, oranges and soap. Flavor is soapy, floral and lightly citrus, but this IPA doesn’t have enough of a hope punch for my palate.

Dear long trail: you did an ipa justice! It's a stand out! Grapefruit twist and a high end citrus swallow. Great example of a stand alone stand out of the crowd ipa! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joejames (157) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2014
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours hazy golden, nice two finger pillow head, nice lacing and retention. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon and caramel. Taste is hoppy bitter with just enough sweet malt for balance. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, creamy mouth feel. Finishes extremely balanced with notes of spruce, grapefruit, kiwi fruit, toffee, tangerine and light resin. This one’s a real winner!
