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.

Draft. Clear gold, amber color with a small white head. Pretty good lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, grass, and clove. Mildly spicy, hops are very refreshing, not a heavy bitterness. Light tropical fruit juices, grapefruit. Just a little sticky. Pretty good.

Cette tête mousseuse sur cette robe dorée est magnifique. Le nez par contre me semble un peu vieux. Les houblons herbacés et épicées cachent des mandarines et autres agrumes. Les malts caramélisés tirent sur les cultivars. Au goût, les agrumes ont un regain de vie. Les houblons sont donc aromatiques mais aussi amérisants. Les céréales finissent par prendre un avantage. En bouche, le liquide a un corps de moyenne densité. Le pétillement contrôlé contribue à peaufiner la texture huileuse. En finale, je peux dire que c’est fruité et peu amer. Nez un peu ridé mais bouche agréable.

A buddy of mine stopped by with a variety of beers. This was a decent IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cheap (4569) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2015
On tap at bocktown. Slight haze on a plae yellow beer. Rocky head with a slight BO aroma. Really nice lacing. This is simply a terribly on style big bitter ipa fer sure. You may’s well make it a double IPA because that’s how bitter it is. Mouth coating nasty Nellie roto-tiller across the taste buds. Quite difficult for a lager lover and rude.

Tap. Copper pour with creamy white head. Pine, japanese pickled radish, mustard, grapefruit. Medium body. Pine and wheat. Don’t know if the tap was bad but this has a funky smell and aftertaste.

bavarian81 (111) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Poured a hazy amber with a medium head. Aroma has a nice floral and citrus aroma. Nice flavor. You get the hops up front with a citrusy finish. I think there are also some darker fruits in there as well that I can’t put my finger on. Also some indistinct spices. A very nice, balanced, complex IPA.

raphael (1015) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2015
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, it’s 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. I’ll have another.
