3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Hazy orange amber with a thin bright wide head. The aroma is interesting -- musty yet fruity too. The beer drinks with a sweet citric base, coupled with a different gristy feel unusual for such a sweet beer. Good. (#4167, 7/16/2011)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light amber gold with a foamy/creamy 2 finger off-white head. Aroma is floral with some mild citrus and a little caramel. Mouthfeel is rather lush. Flavor is very floral/citrus and almost hides the caramel. Quite hoppy, though not burningly bitter, and with time there’s some graprefruit rind detectible. Good stuff.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle brought from Vermont by Grandpa Bill - thanks! Pours a foamy yellowish-orange with a lot of floaties. Aroma is faintly oranges with bread dough and wheat. Taste is a bit citrusy, sweet and light with some more of that straw/wheatiness. Finishes very light with some bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I normally like most of the Long Trail beer, but this unfiltered IPA didn’t do much for me. Rather bland with a funky aftertaste. I wouldn’t drink this again.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy light orange color with a small, foamy, stark white head. Lots of carbonation action. The nose has a bit of pine, solvent, grain, and light fruitiness. That solvent note carries through in the taste where there is some pine, florals, and light graininess. This brew is very astringent. Light to medium body with medium carbonation and an eerie fruity astringent finish. Aside from an odd taste, this has a strange mouthfeel. Skip this one.

Tops in my book. Perfection in a bottle. Easy to drink, flavorful IPA that will keep you coming back to the beer store for more.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is my first unfiltered IPA. It poured with a frothy head that filled the glass. The lacing ran up and down the glass. The ale lacked some body and the bitter taste of the hops was balanced and smooth through the finish. It is an interesting ale to tatse and compare but not one that I would keep in my refrigerator.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Murky glowing orange, thin lacy off-white head. On the heavier side of medium bodied, quite a nice session IPA. Lots of citrus..grapefruit, orange, lemon..maybe a touch of ginger in the finish. Mellow but lots of fresh, assertive, hop character. A solid East Coast IPA.
