4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz into a stemmed belgain 16.9oz glass. Pours a rusted orange amber, full bodied brew, looks fantastic. Lacing is plentiful and sticks around awhile, sticky and fervent, it withstands the downfall of the head, which is thin yet encompassing of the brew. Aroma of sweet and frontal fruits, a hoppy tropical vibe, love it. Taste is the same, juicy citrus and fruits all over meshed with a tangy and tasty mix of these new hops from down under. Works for me. This may be the best Long Trail has yet to offer. Solid at 7.6, is it a double? imperial? Or just a fantastical rendition of an east coast ipa. Heard they are expanding production of this at the brewery. Good call. Great beer.

A tasty IPA with well-balanced hoppiness and a good mouthfeel. Buttered smoothness and slight bitterness in the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Barcade, pours hazy amber with medium frothy white head and nice lacing. Aromas and flavor are grapefruit, crisp malt, light grape sugar, and lemon bitterness. Medium in body. Pretty solid overall just a hint too sweet

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle. Very nice tropical fruit and sweet aromatics on the hops. Apricot, mango. Some dankness. Caramel. Warm amber-orange haze with creamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Starts sweet with caramel, biscuit, and a dank hop note. Mild tropical fruit and a bit of carbonic bite. Big hop bitterness comes through at the end, and after is medium strong bitter with notes of apricot.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Joeís. Bright clear copper with head and lace. Complex spicy citrus orange aroma. Mild sweet fruity peach with hints of toasted caramel with assertive orange rind and spicy hop lingering bitterness. Fairly dry and well-attenuated. Lively carbo accentuates the hops. Excellent. Itís about time Long Trail got their shit together.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Does everyone make great IPAs these days or what? Iíve had a lot of different Long Trail and always thought they were middle of the road all the way around, but this is a knockout. Overpowering aroma of pine needles, grass and grapefruit -- you can smell it before the beer gets to your nose. Hazy golden color, lots of lace. Taste is puckering, sweet, juicy. 7.6% seems hard to believe. Top flight IPA.
