A: Poured from the half-growler (purchased at Olivers in Albany) into a Harpoon pint glass. Body is clear, dark golden/orange with a half-finger of whitish head on top. Leaves behind a good amount of lace.
S: Perfumey & floral hops with notes of apricot and spice.
T: Underlying sweetness is followed by juicy hops. Citrus (clementines), apricots and an earthy, spicy hop bite, which makes me think of Simcoe or Amarillo hops (according to Olivers, some sort of new Australian hop was used here). Finishes with spiciness, a touch of garlic/onion (Amarillo-like again) and then lemony bitterness and orange peel coats the palate. It never becomes overly bitter; a decent amount of sweetness is present throughout.
M: Medium in heft, carbonation is modest.
O: Good stuff. Tasty and juicy, but different from your standard American IPA. Definitely worth a try.

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.

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.
