Very nice surprise from Long Trail indeed! Artwork on the label is what 1st caught my attention. But the brew overall is quite good and will certainly be getting it again.

Long Trail coming in hot. The brewery that started me off into craft beer is evolving and this one is great. Huge citrus, herbal grassy hoppy IPA with a light caramel and bready maltiness. Great job.

Bottled earlier this month, should be good to go. Boostle from shelfie aroma. Pours a clear light amber with a 2 finger white head. Aromas of muted hops, some cat piss, some juicy hops. Taste has a nice juicy hop expression - that seems to be the trend these days going with those New Zealand hops. Pretty decent taste. Not overly bitter, but some bitterness with a decent amount of juicy hops. Nice. Finishes semi sweet with some tropical fruit. Way better than I expected.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
excellent aroma! It fills the nostrils with notes of mango, citrus, and pine. Orange/amber hue great clarity with some sediment in bottom of glass. A good head that holds well and leaves a nice even lacing. Taste is predominately hops that bring notes of mango, clementine, pine resin, with a slightly boozy touch just enough to warm throat. The bitterness is on the harsher dryer side and lingers on palate long after the swallow. Mid taste some malt tones show through although short lived. Good flavor complexity definitely hop forward. It has a good mouth feel and is nice and dry. Overall, Iím impressed best IPA Iíve had from Long Trail.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small white head thats gone quick leaving no lacing. Aroma is heavy sweet hops, floral, citrus and bread. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter and light to medium sour. Average to lively carbonation, light to medium body, flavors of grapefruit and citrus and a medium length bitter and sour finish. Interesting.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2014 surprisingly very good ipa, on tap at Coleís. Reddish colour with a little lace and head. Big IBU/ Decent drinkability, with some complex flavours. I had again several weeks later and the nose of grapefruit was great.

Drank from bottle. Aroma is very heavy on the pine smell. Tastes of pineapple, mango, and a little grassy. Medium body, not an overbearing bitter finish. Aftertaste has a small taste of peaches. I like it
