3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep golden color with a finger of sticky eggshell foam. The nose has some nice pineapple and citrus up front with some honeyed malt background. On the palate its more bitter and earthy than fruit driven... as it warms to room temperatures the fruit begins to show itself better. Nice touch of mango and fresh grass. Overall its a clean well done IPA but it heavy on the lingering pine and a bit more abrasive than I was expecting but highly drinkable.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and fruity hops, some pale, grainy, and caramel malts, and a little spiciness. Flavor the same with a good amount of hops. Average texture. A pretty good IPA.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bitter hop-forward beer with sweet malt that gives way to a strong mango flavor and ends with a terse bitter finish. Leaves palate clean with a pleasantly hoppy astringency.
Enjoyable especially for a tropical IPA, which run too sweet and fruity for me, but could use some more depth. A solid offering from Long Trail.
