Pours a beautiful gold hue with a two-finger head that leaves some lacing along the edges. The neck of the bottle speaks of "new breeds of hops coming out of Australia and the Pacific Northwest." I thought New Zealand was the current rage of hops?

Mango and pineapple stand out in the nose. Malt backbone is detectable as well.

Taste is a mixed bag. Grapefruit and mango flavors clash with pine tar in the mouth. Bitter but not in a desirable manner.

Ditto for mouthfeel. Jumbled and the alcohol heat makes it unappealing.

I think that the problem with this beer is that it can't decide what it wants to be. Does it want to be a traditional East Coast IPA? A "fruity" western IPA with exotic hops? Neither? It's worth a try but I can't help but wonder if it would taste better straight from the tap?

This is a MUST TRY beer... Simply put. Forget everything you think you know about Long Trail. Although their line is middle of the pack at best, their Limbo IPA is leaps and bounds ahead of anything i thought they would brew. Intensely hoppy. Deliciously strong pine and grapefruit notes. I can't say it enough, this is a MUST TRY beer.
4/5.

Does everyone make great IPAs these days or what? I've had a lot of different Long Trail and always thought they were middle of the road all the way around, but this is a knockout. Overpowering aroma of pine needles, grass and grapefruit -- you can smell it before the beer gets to your nose. Hazy golden color, lots of lace. Taste is puckering, sweet, juicy. 7.6% seems hard to believe. Top flight IPA.
