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 @ the Mews Tavern in Wakefield, RI. Medium hops, tangy sweet but not cloying. Solid but unremarkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Tropical fruit and lightly toasted sugars are met by resinous greenness in this pleasant IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A healthy head of foam sits atop the translucent amber.
-Carbonation is ample and soft enough to emulate bottle conditioning.
-Mouthfeel is relatively lean, which increases drinkability.
-Hop fruitiness is akin to peach and mango syrup.
-The resinous bitterness builds with every sip, creating plenty of coniferous allusions.

12 oz bottle @ home, a present from the wonderful Aaltje from De Bierkoning, thanks! Bottled 12/31/2015. Hazy orange/amber color. Off white head, stiff as whipped cream. Aroma’s of tropical fruit, passion fruit, some malty sweetness. Also some resin retronasal. Flavor is moderate to full bitter and moderate sweet. Medium bodied. Finish is long lasting bitter, but not too harsh. Next time I should try a fresh bottle.

Medium gold. Strong fruit nose...mango/peach is most prominent, with hop nose underneath. Strong peach/mango, mixing with bittering hops. Black pepper appears towards the end, before trailing off with the fruit/hops mix. Creamy mouthfeel, works well with the peach. Very nice complexity!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewer, 5/21/16.
Light amber-to-brass body shows a good clarity and an off-white head atop with moderate retention.
Peach, melon, ruby red grapefruit and mango in the nose seems to rather deftly combine aspects of both West Coast and New England styles. Lengthy finish replete with dry lemon and light honey from the malt. Clean. No alcohol.
Soft, malty-sweet texture nonetheless shows good attenuation and no flaw or alcohol. Modest bitterness never really intensifies or gets too piney, as melon, meyer lemon and light pineapple all keep things very bright, the honey-like malt notes helping to see to this as well. Very drinkable, with soft, engaging, low carbonation. Would definitely drink this again.

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.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark amber color with small white head. Hoppy citrus aroma. Bitter hoppy flavor with loads of citrus and a bit of pine. Medium bodied with a lingering bitter finish. Pretty good.

Bottle. Nail polish, lemon toffee malt, and light orange peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with moderate off-white head. Moderately sweet orange toffee malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel/pine flavor. Solventy finish. Good body.
