Tap. Pours a copper color with a solid head. Lots of piney hops flavors. Not enough malt backbone for my tastes. To much astringency in the aftertaste. OK but not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home in CT. Pours clear gold with a foamy, off-white head. The nose has nips of melon, orange, pale bread. Medium sweet flavor with some gooey tangerine, light piney bitterness, bready pale malts. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish, a little resinous, with more ripe and lightly gooey citrus fruits, oily pine. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice aromas, citrus lemon tangerine, some malt, after first sip had to recheck alcohol, comes across much more heavy than 7.6, slight astringent taste like overripe pineapple which loses a lot of the hoppy ness, little bitterness that doesn’t linger, drinkable but does not seem up to par with Vermont’s elite.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dec. 22, 2014. 12 oz. bottle; shaker glass. A previous reviewer hilariously (I thought, before sampling) used the term "cat urine" to describe this product. However, having both tended to an ailing feline and sampled this ale, the comparison is startlingly-apt. Generally love IPAs, and can almost envision where this brew was trying to go, but something went terribly, horribly wrong on this particular "long trail." (Maybe this was a bad one; am open to a re-rate.)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Off-white sloppy head of varying sized bubbles with little order. Pungent hops aroma with lots of cat urine, peaches, mild malts and some tea leaves. Color is a medium orangish brown. Very herbal flavor with weeds, parsley, rye, dusty malts and roasted grains. Could use a bit more malt for balance. Finishes with a lingering bitterness. An ok IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the 12 fl. oz bottle dated 9/26/14. The pour is a cloudy medium amber with yellow hues and an of-white head that lingers and laces. Mild carbonation bubbles. The hopes notes on the nose are inviting with the resin and floral character bouncing forward after a quick pale malt sweetness. Medium to heavy body. Smooth. Some toasted grainy malts at first and quickly superseded by the floral and resin hop finish. It is moderately bitter with a quick lingering finish. Long Trail hit the mark on this one. This can be a pricey beer but I got the six-pack on sale. Five more to enjoy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased on one of my trip to Vermont. Pours a very slightly hazy amber colour with a big frothy-creamy warm cap, great retention and some very nice lacing. Aromas of the fresh hops, but well-balanced with some tropical fruits notes. Because of this, the taste is quite sweet at first, but finishes on a dry hoppy bitterness. The fruits are always present. Quite a nice IPA that is easy-drinking because of the mix of tropical fruits and hoppiness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Buckets, Jenkintown bottle: Pours copper with a white head. Aroma is nice citrus, pine, and tropical fruit. Taste is nice and fruity. It be a little bit on the sweet side. Not too bitter. Very flavorful. Long Trail continues its come from behind excellent beers. Why is no one talking about Long Trail I asks you.

A delicious combination of hops brewed brilliantly together to create a beautiful concoction that we call a limbo.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
