Bottled. Poured a nice hazy and verylightly filtered golden sunset brown. finger and a half of head. Nose was very pleasant with notes of pine, floral, and pineapple. Taste was a bready, with a good bittery and smooth finish. Once it warmed up, the nose was even more present with pine, and pineaple. an extremely tasty brew.

Tap. Yellow color, thick white head. Absolutely amazing aroma of fresh pine forest - holy cow! Taste is very bitter, with plenty of resin and pine. Good stuff. PhatB420 (840) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2011
Hoppy and hoppier. In a blind taste test I would steer towards the Ipa category. this is an awesome pale ale. giant head the towers over the brew at first. Im thinking the abv is around 5.5 or so. Flows nicely on the pallate with citrus, hay, and malt notes prevalent. Color is amazingly bold for a pale ale. A mild sunlight shown through a sterdy barn in the morning hours. This is my favorite pale ale. Radek Kliber (7359) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 29, 2011

Aroma: great note ,frontal hop dryness, pine , spruce , green grassy feel. Superbly fresh. 8+
Appearance: great pour. Pleasant to eye crystal clear dark amber with large frothy white top. Fine ornamental lace.4+
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: Medium full bodied. Dry but overly, crisp ,clean palate. Bitter yet smooth with herbal and pine notes. Straight to the point. I have not had such clean cut brew in a long time. Solid if not world class bitter amber ale.
A tart pale ale, very herbal, and invigorating palate. One of my favorite pale ales!

for a Pale Ale, great colour, good pour, nice taste, including the aftertaste. Overall a good beer. LilBeerDoctor (3930) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a thick, foamy white head. Aroma of diacetyl, light citrus, sweet malt. Flavor of more light diacetyl with lemon, citrus, hop resins, sweet fruits, bready malt and caramel malt. Smooth, creamy palate. Great English IPA and superbly drinkable. A great new addition from Long Trail!

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"! obxdude10 (2324) - Pottstown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Enjoyable and very drinkable pale ale. On draft at the Railroad Street. Amber color with an ample white head that laced nicely around the inside of the glass. The nose was well-balanced with a good combination light and flowery hops and earthy malts. The flavors were smooth and delicious and made this beer very sessionable. A good combination of hops and malts were in the flavors, with a hint of orange, pine and earth. Odyn (266) - New York, USA - MAR 28, 2010
Strong aroma of pine with a bitter flavor that is surprisingly drinkable. Not quite as hoppy as a lot of pale ales, this instead gives you an image of the evergreen of Vermont. Finshes well with some bitterness but no harshess.
