Glacial Trail pours a darker golden color, with a nice long lasting head. Their is a clean crisp hoppy aroma. The taste has a pronounced malty backbone, with a bold hoppy flavor. These flavors do standout, and their is a strange soapy like aftertaste. Overall not the worst, but not great, expected better from central waters.

Poured into a sam lager glass, great pour, perfect 1/2 inch head the color of which is tan, and bubbly; body color is copper with fine bubble carbonation.

Smell is subdued, bready, biscuity malts with a note of pine and citrus.

Taste is pretty clean, nice malt profile, a little more bread and biscuit than usual, hop profile is very solid, mixed pine, hints of mango and citrus.

Mouthfeel is a little drying from the bitterness but not overly so, carbonation and malt sweetness work well together in addition to the lingering bitterness.

Overall, a very solid, easy drinking IPA, would like to find this one on tap so its a bit fresher.

My buddy is an Amherst local and introduced this beer to me while on a ski trip in Colorado. I was a bit skeptical knowing that this beer was basically from the middle of nowhere, but as soon as I tasted it I was in love. From the bottle, it had a beautiful floral taste. Just the right amount of hops with a delicious malty backside. Quite fruity as well. Crisp finish that isn't too dry. A super easy drinking IPA that has somehow slipped under the radar for far too long in my life. Give this IPA a shot, you wont be disappointed.
