12 oz bottle. Pours dark copper with a one finger dense white head. Spotty lacing. Sharp, hoppy citrus aroma. Citrus flavor with a well balanced malty sweet background. Body is towards the full side with a oily resinous coating on the tongue. Quite good. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - MAY 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle- Pours a surprisingly dark rusty amber with a nice three finger head with excellent retention and good lace, in the appearance the darker than normal color worries me that there is too much malt, or even worse, caramel malt. The aroma is mellow, not in your face hops like I was hoping for, malt is more prominent which is confirming my suspicions about the appearance. The taste is yeah, confirmed malty, dirty earthy caramel malt, there is a big bitterness here, and it lasts throughout, leaving your mouth bittered up long after the swallow, but that caramel malt ruins it for me. Body is medium and carbonation is fairly high. Why do people put these malts in IPA’s, a beer that boasts seven different hops, and the malt is mostly what I take away from this beer! The thing is this is not a bad beer, if it were described as an imperialized hoppy amber ale, I would have more respect for this, I just don’t get IPA here.

Pours a clear amber with good persistent light khaki head. Nose of earthy ’red’ pellet hops. Some might say almost ’stinky’ but not quite like weed. Flavor of sweet caramel and pine, grapefruit, lemon citrus acid. Semi resinous lingering oil on the palate. Not really what I crave in an IPA, but not bad. Overall, I’d say this was the most disappointing Longshot pack I’ve had. odinstyr (817) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a clear copper red with a moderate tan foamy head. Smells of lemon, pine, caramel, grapefruit. Taste is bitter and moderately sweet - grapefruit, spruce, lemon, light caramel. notalush (5896) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Medium amber pour - thick, sticky lace - resinous aroma of pine, grapefruit pith, earth - fairly sweet caramel - low carbonation, medium body - quite sticky sweet in flavor - quite a bit of caramel - the stickiness works somewhat with the resinous character of the hops, I guess - earthy hop flavors of pine, soil - orange oil, grapefruit peel - not terribly complex, and quite sweet, but okay.

Bottle from Canals. Nice long shot brew. Good amount of citrus, pine and caramel malts. The finish is dry, mild spice and dirt. I like it. jehoesefat (366) - Poway, California, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Aroma is hoppy citrus and a little earthy. Pours clear copper with an off-white head. Great flavor, the balance of malt and hops works well. hopdog (12816) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Amber pour with an off white head. I smelled the floral hops as soon as I popped the cap. Toasted floral hops with citrus. Some earthy and caramel in the tastes too. nuplastikk (6373) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2013
12oz bottle. Filtered amber-copper coilor. Thin, steady off-white/beige head. Respectable piny grapefruit aroma. A pretty decent old school style IIPA, not of resinous hops, and big chewy malts. Kind of earthy, lemony...like Sam Adams just had to get certain flavors in. Hollow, watery body, even though it has a big, sticky flavor. Not bad, but not impressive either.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-brown color with a large creamy/soapy orange-tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy pine, grapefruit, lemon and faint perfumey and floral hops. The flavor was tang and sweet caramel, pine, perfume, floral hops, pepper and lemon. Long pepper, pine and grapefruit finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.
