2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear copper body with a one finger frothy off-white head that left a bit of lacing. The nose smells a bit more like instant iced tea more than a Pale Ale. Smells like there’s going to be some crystal malt going on here. The hops are light and floral. The flavor is pretty sad. Very sweet and sugary, tastes like they dropped a packet of Sugar in the Raw in each bottle. Minimal hop flavor and bitterness. Sticky and cloying mouthfeel with fizzy carbonation. This is the worst of the Long Trail beers that I’ve had.

Caramel malt, citrus, and piney hops in the aroma. Flavor starts slightly sweet with spice and pine bitterness. More pine bitterness in the finish. Decent pale ale with lots of flavor.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy, Rusty-colored Reddish-Orange in color. Looks almost like a "Irish Red", and not a "Pale Ale". Looks to have some spices floating around in the glass. Has a big foamy white head, that lasts for the entire glass!! When I took my last sip, and glass was empty, foam from the head was at bottom of glass!! Big foamy, long lasting head, but little to no lacing though. Has good carbonation that lasts until last sip. Aroma was of Malt and Pine, with maybe a hint of citrus. Taste was of Malt and Pine. A little bit of a Malty/Piney aftertaste as well. Not a bad Pale Ale from this small, independent brewery in Vermont! Very flavorful, but because of the somewhat Reddish color, it makes me think I am drinking an "Irish Red"!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a rust-orange color with a big foamy white head that had good retention, and great lacing and cling throughout. Its aroma had a strong pine scent blended with some citrus hops, and touches of caramel malt, barley, and grain. Its taste had a strong bitter grainyness, with citrus and pine effects, and was just a touch sour with no sweetness. The beer had above average carbonation and fizz, but was a bit thin with a lighter mouthfeel and slightly dry.

Bottle at Allegra’s dads house. This shit is nasty. Bitter, buttery, a tad earthy and poppy with a fair amount of soap.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy orange with a finger of off-white head. Orange citrus to the aroma. The hops come off as mellow, though they fade up from a slight syrupy sweetness and ends with a nice hoppy bitter aftertaste. Pretty solid.

pine and grapefruit a touch soapy but flavorful indeed. fragrant with some sweetness in bitterness some pine wafts in from time to time. touch of caramel and fruit punch with a bitter finish that lingers as the palate goes soft and smooth. Never had an English this amped up hop wise.
