Sampled this for the first time and was very pleased. Reminded me a little of Stone. Color was a light amber (or deep gold) slightly hazed, with a medium, light tan head that remained and lightly laced the glass. First experience is a bitterness balanced well with a sweetness that has an almost-nutty undertone. The front end quickly dissipated to slight resiny, peppery notes and then finished with a lemony/grapefruit rise. Nose was light resiny but complimented the flavors perfectly. No off flavors, unlike the Session IPA version. Great example of the style, well balanced and this is Long Trail's best swing at an AIPA, including Brown Bag. Understanding it is a scratch offering, hopefully we will see it come to those of us outside of VT.

12 ounce bottle from the 12 bottle box.

1-6-14 etched onto the bottle, bottling date?

Pours heavily hazed lighter and yellowy . Frothy off white head, stays nicely, before leaving plenty of thicker and high on the glass lace.

Lemon, ginger and citrus on the nose.

More of the same on the tongue and around the mouth. Hops are kinda dull tasting and mostly just bittering. Not getting much floral or citric notes. All in all a decent if not awe inspiring AIPA. Worth a try but dont expect fireworks

Got a single at Wegmans Dewitt. Overall, a lovely IPA. It brings a mix of floral, juicy hops that are smooth up front and spicy grapefruit that dries out in the finish. Medium body, satisfying bitterness, I'd buy a six pack.

8/24....pours cloudy hazy bronze with a layer of white foam that rings and sticks. Strong evergreen pine nose, resin notes. Taste is a light/bright with an underneath bitter line. This bitter holds on following completion.

From the 12 fl. oz bottle with a bottling date of 07/13/15. Sampled on August 7, 2015. About 25 days fresh.

It is a really attractive copper amber pour with a lasting off-white foamy head.

A very nice bouquet of tropical fruit and floral hops with an under current of roasted pale malts.

The body falls into the light to medium range but it has a smooth texture to it.

The taste is a nicely balanced sweet and hopped up beer in the traditional IPA style. I bought the mixed 12 pack and I'm glad there are two more left.
