4.18/5  rDev +1.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 12/23/13 - so its just over 2 weeks - pretty fresh.
Poured into tulip. Slight amber color with a bit of lacing a thin head. Nice fresh pungent hop - pine and a bit of sugary sweetness with a nice dose of caramel malt. Really nice. Pine and resin flavor are right up front with a big caramel and maltiness which really balances the whole brew. Its really easy to drink with a nice full mouthfeel. Overall a great IPA - bordering on double - but a well balanced and drinkable brew nonetheless. Well worth the relatively low cost at around $8/4pack.

4.14/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a clear, orangy/amber color, with a very modest head. Smell is citrus/tropical hops, not massive, but substantial. The taste has a similar hoppy flavor, but it's not quite up to the smell and it's got a bit more booziness than I'd like. Mouthfeel is nice, no complaints. Overall, I'm being picky here because it's not perfect, but my general reaction is, "wow, this is a really good ipa and I can't believe it's from Long Trail!" Good beer, good price. I'll buy this one when I see it.

4.05/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Half inch dense white head on a solid orange body. Some clumpy lacing with a collar left that last the whole 12 ounces.

S- Aromas of bright citrus, oranges.

T- Taste follows the aroma but cranks it up two notches...sweet tropical notes throughout. Wow, that's eye opening. Hops leave a slight bitter aftertaste. Leaves the mouth watering for the next sip. Would put it right at it's stated ABV of 7.5%.

M- Full mouthfeel, medium carbonation.

D/O- Somewhat reminded me of Sculpin. Very apparent upfront sweetness separates it from most IPAs. Enjoyed the simple but dramatic artwork. Thanks a ton for this solid local Marc (mj0126)!

Extra from papparoachy, thank you sir!

A- Amazeballs ruby diamond in color, never seen in IPA with this color. It is like a mix between an amber and a darker translucent IPA. Very litte carb in this, but it works. Thin lacing with good legs.

S- Kinda bland here, malt backbone takes up the majority of the S. Small amount of piney hop character.

T- Really enjoyable IPA that isn't malt heavy or hop heavy. Just nice and light. Nothing really dominating here, but balanced well.

M- Crazy thing about this one is the carb sort of avalanches from the front of your tongue to the back giving a tingling sensation throughout your taste. Really interesting there. Decent amount of carb.

O- A well done IPA that is in the category of IPA's that I like, not malt or pine heavy.

Smell: Fruit, fruit, and more fruit! Both citrus and tropical

Taste: Citrus lemon peel, oranges. Some tropical flavors such as mango, peaches. All backed up by a great malt backbone

Mouthfeel: Medium body with the perfect bitterness

Overall: This is a incredibly clean tasting and refreshing IPA. Rivals some of the best on the market. Went with my wings marvelously. Definitely recommended
