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.

Solid IPA to my liking. ON the resin side in aroma and flavor, looks god, gives the mouth enough to keep busy. Would never turn one down. good interplay of a peach sweet among the resin & black pepper. balanced finish.

Not my favorite. Too big of a beer (hips are way out of balance IMHO) or maybe I am too small of a man? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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, its 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. Ill have another.

On tap - Light copper with a small head. Has a bit of a banana aroma and taste. Nice tropical fruits in this one. Medium body and average bitter finish.

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 Ill try this again sometime. Tough to get down as it was, but not terrible.

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".
