12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Pale copper color, good clarity. Big citrus zest nose, spicy and grainy as well. Thinner body but we are drinking a "session" beer so that seems to be common. Loads of hop flavor; zest, rind, pith, peppery. Grassy maltiness, clean palate with a very dry finish.

Way too easy to drink, gettin my hop fix on without a huge hammer of alcohol is not a bad thing.

Long trail farm house session IPA
Thanks Smolly for sharing/trading
From the 12 bottle box, 12/10/13 etched on the bottle, brewed on date?
Pours near clear, with bubbles rising. Lite tan head, that leaves a nice tiny bubble film, collar and and some larger bubble webs of lace.
Citric hop nose.
Hoppy on the tongue from start to finish, with resin, pine and also some grapefruit. Sort of mushy and not as crisp as I’d prefer in the finish. Hops are quite biter, but I wouldn’t say they are really that flavorful.
Nothing special, just a middle of the road, drinkable IPA

A- Poured from the 12oz bottle with a pretty much clear orange-light amber body. Small white cap builds up to a bit lower than one finger with fairly poor retention. The head recedes to a small, foamy ring depositing spotty lace.

S- Fairly juicy hops off the top but the nose overall is not that pungent. Hops have tropical, citrus, floral and pine notes. The fruity note reminds me of a mini-Limbo.

T- Follows the nose in that it reminds me of a smaller version of Limbo. The hop focus is on a stone fruit and tropical fruit pith with a strong citrus backdrop as well as hints of pine, floral and spicy hops. Fairly bitter for 4.5%. Light bit of yeast fruit, bread and light cracked malts.

MF- Nice creamy texture for a session and lower-ABV IPA. Body is on the lighter side and carbonation hits the palate at a high level, without it the hops might be a bit subdued. Finishes with a moderate bitterness.

Honestly is like a Limbo-light session brew. The hop profile seems to be quite similar and everything else in the brew is super clean.

Clear caramel, amber color. Decent starting head and settles in a dome. Good chunks of lace on the glass.

Caramel (crystal) malt sweet aroma with a bit of floral hop.

The hop bite is stronger than the smell suggests. The malt base is also far more dry. Peppery aftertaste. Good body but with a high carbonation level. It has all of the elements of an American IPA--nice for a session beer.

4.03/5  rDev +11.6%

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, copper coloring with a thin, filmy, light, white head that completely dissolves after a minute or two. Aromas of cedar resin, grass, pepper spice, hints of grapefruit, tangerine, and mango. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with a solid blend of roast caramel and tropical fruits, followed by a peppery spiced and subtle bitter highlight. Very well balanced, and the bitter and spice builds towards the end of the palate. Thin, light body leading to an effervesced, crisp, dry finish. Aftertaste of bitter resin and tangy tropical fruit. Very crisp, and very easy to drink. Robust flavors on a light body and light ABV. Well done.
