Picked this up in Totowa, as a recommendation since none of the other beers that I had from Long Trail in the past impressed me that much. All of that skepticism ended when I undid the cap on this and poured it out. From the hue to the taste to the aftertaste, this was a winner from start to finish; so much so that it stood out quite a bit from most other IPA's that I've had in the past. The beauty in this beer wasn't in its punch but in its drinkablity, as I really has to pace myself to make this last for the duration of this review!

Loved the pour to this, as the dark golden hue was capped off by a thick, sea-foam form of a head that didn't quit and stuck to the side of my pint glass as I worked my way down. Besides the loads of lacing, the carbonation swirled around the center of the beer for quite some time as it looked like I had a vortex going on in there. Lots of pint and grapefruit in the nose, reinforced by sharp citrus and tropical fruits in the back. Very little "burn" and not a dry-hopped beer either, this had a nice balance with just a hint of resin to give it some oily depth and a hint of mint freshness. There was also bit of grassiness to this as well, giving this beer a slightly rustic feel.

Booze? It's in there somewhere but you might have to make your way to the bottom of this before you feel it kick in. No big deal - this went down so easily and because the bitterness was muted, the malt was just a bit more pronounced than it would be in your typical IPA. Not a true east or west coast take on this style, Long Trail is more of a trailblazer than anything else with this offering. Great example of what this style is capable of and well worth the price of a six-pack. The hype for this beer was certainly warranted!
