4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Impressive. Long time since Long Trail for me, but a small store with small variety led me to try this one. Great fortune! Whatever variety this new breed of hops is, itís right up my alley. Pours amber with slight orange tint, and lacy white top. Aromas are pungent fruit with slight citrus. Flavor is more of the same with some malt breadiness. Finish is crisp and clean. Iíll have another.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Vermont trip. About 4 weeks old so should still be fine. Amber golden pour, nearly no head. Harsh aroma of astringent hops, and flavor follows suit. There was something weird going on with this one. Seems like the hop notes are all out of balance with what otherwise seem like a nice malt backbone. Maybe Iíll try this again sometime. Tough to get down as it was, but not terrible.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
35 cl bottle from a retailer in NY, catchy look. Light amber color with a big and ultra creamy white head, plenty of lacing. Hoppy IPA nose. Aroma is mildly fruity/syrupy with a solid malts backbone and lots of resiny hops, some citrus, Taste is initially sweet then fades into a pleasingly biting bitterness. Body is medium to full, smooth carbonation, long finish. Excellent smooth creamy IPA, as writen on the tin "big and mouth-watering".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at HalfCut. Pours a clear gold color with a small eggshell colored head that leaves wisps of film, a ring, and some lace along the sides. Notes of lemon and tangerine citrus, sweet and caramel malts, apple, tea, and a dash of herbs. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, balanced, bitter mouthfeel. Teeters on the edge between regular and imperial IPA, and that territory serves it well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
4/04/2015 (draught at The Littlefield in Cincinnati): Lots of ripe citrus and tropical fruit in the aroma. Red orange color. Drinks heavier than it really is and the alcohol seems higher than it is. Overly ripe tropical fruit, candied citrus peel, and a bit of honey malt; moderate bitterness overall; the alcohol shows, but itís offensive. Very, very good. I was surprised to see this in the area and hope to be able to find it in bottles too!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy amber with minimal effervescent head. Aroma is mild citrus and honey with some hints of fresh apple cider and a touch of piney sap stickiness. This beer has a pretty substantial initial hop bite that yields to some strong doughy malt flavors that melt away as the fruity sugars persist until all that is left are hints of cider and citrus. This IPA successfully captures a wide array of flavors without overpowering the palate.
