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? I’ve 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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Some malt, a good bit of dry hops, and a whole lot of earthiness. A bit dirty, a bit nutty, a bit woody. Fairly dry through the finish but not very bitter.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent aroma of pine and wood. Body is funky with a strong taste of fruit that doesn't feel like it comes from the hops. Finishes clean.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours an amber color with a minimal white head. Hop nose, with an almost apple smell of fruit and floral. A little watery on the mouthfeel but good balance and crisp.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice copper pour with a frothy white head. Nice bit of citrus hops in the nose with a little pine leaning. Nice mix of malt and hops on the tongue. A little fruity sweetness up front quickly hammered out by citrus nose finishing with a little biscuit. Overall pretty solid.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden amber color, moderate white head. Clash of peach and mango with Simcoe grapefruit and herbal aromas. Smidgen of sweetness with citrus rind bitterness, and a rice-like element in the background. Smooth, good carb, and medium-bodied. Dry, bitter finish with a bit of booziness.
