COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We've brewed our filtered IPA for 13 years, and never considered offering the REAL (unfiltered) version that is naturally carbonated just as it comes out of our fermenters. Well here it is! We hope you enjoy our REAL IPA.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Floral and fruity aroma. Floral and pine flavor with light tropical fruits. Medium bodied. Decent bitterness. Tropical fruits linger with floral notes and malt.

Braudog (6025) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 16, 2011
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)

JediMindTricks (446) - Remington, Virginia, USA - JUL 2, 2011
grapey grapefruit alcohol aroma. gold with big foamy white head. a little can lagery flavor but with good grapefruit. passable in a pinch but something’s not quite right about this one.

bhensonb (12600) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 30, 2011
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.

AWISLguy (1827) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 8, 2011
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.

Zombeer (59) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 21, 2011
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.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2011
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.

adeussing (2) - Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2010 does not count
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.

Foxbush (1505) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2010
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.

nuplastikk (5095) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2010
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.
