12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a semi-hazy orange color. The head is two fingers high, with a shade that’s just off-white. Retaining itself acceptably, it has a rocky texture and leaves goodly lacing behind. S: Citrus, and lots of it. Predominantly grapefruit, with a side of orange and just a suggestion of tropical fruit. There’s also a fair bit of sweet caramel malt, but it seems to be very well integrated with the hop character - creating an illusion of orange juice. Very promising aroma. T: It’s slightly maltier than the aroma suggested, but still nothing that can be called a sweet mess. The hops are clustered on the front of the palate - bringing their citrusy goodness - while the finish brings forth an almost nutty tone. Some herbal, peppery bitterness (and, later, melon) augments the beer post-swallow. It’s not intrinsically BALANCED per se, but the hop/malt combination is a unique combination that doesn’t clash in any manner. M: Crisp like an IPA should be. There’s a bit too much body for my tastes, though. Luckily, this goes down easily thanks to its semi-bitter finish, healthy carbonation, and slightly coarse texture. O: This one is really delicious. It’s prolific malt backbone actually helps it instead of detracting. Though I tend to prefer leaner, less malty IPAs, there’s more than enough here to warrant another 6 pack purchase.

Long Trail Limbo IPA is well-balanced but with some odd flavors. Amber pour with a nice head. Aroma is a bit funky, like overripe fruit notes. The initial taste is overripe fruit notes again with some pine on the backend. Limbo is well executed but the overripe fruit notes is just short of pleasant -- not real bad --- but just kind of odd.

Smells of mad tropical fruits with citrus hops and a touch of malt coming through at the end. A slightly cloudy copper color with small white head that dissaloves quickly. The hops and malts seem to be battling each other in the beginning then the hop take over with beautiful tropical fruit flood the tougue. Nice bitter super dry hoppy finish. Medium body which happens to be super sticky with lovely carbonation. Best before date on bottle I’ve had this a bunch of times but the last time I had it I was going to rate it but it was skunked and know from the flavor. But this fresh one gave me new inspiration and this is what the beer should be. A great goto IPA. Nice work.

Bonne IPA Américaine avec une petite odeur dhoublon. Saveur très présente du début jusqu’à la fin pour se terminer en douceur. Fin délicate. Très bonne bière.

Nice hops. Bitter but with a touch of fruit. Most likely to berries. Aroma is a little absent. A little more creamier than other IPAs. Descent head.
