12oz bottle into tulip
A: Two finger slightly off white head generated from a generous pour. Retention looks nice; the brew itself is a full bronze or deep golden hue that appears filtered, but not 100% transparent. Mid-level carbonation to the eye, looks reasonably bodied. Not seeing sediment of any kind.
S: Slightly maple scented, faint caramel, freshly cut peach and sweet mango, wild grape, juicy esters hit the nose and mellow into light tangerine and muddled citrus. The fruit aroma is syrupy sweet reminding me of the liquid that remains at the end of a fruit cup. Very pleasant -
T: The nose in liquid form with the addition of a low-tone resin. More citrus than the nose, zesty orange/lemon peel collides with a very hushed hoppy bitter profile. Forward flavor is tropical bringing back the peach and mango. The middle mouth is relegated into balance with caramel malt, pushing toward the finish. The finish recapitulates the whole experience and ends with sweet and fresh tropical fruits.
M: Nice bodied, medium carbonation, pretty crisp and fresh. Aftertaste is sweet and just slightly dry. Tends to leave a bit of a sugary residue on the palate, very satisfying.
O: Impressive, easily my favorite Long Trail offering. Limbo brings the hop imparted tropical fruit profile I look for in an IPA. At the same time the beer is balanced and very drinkable; the mouthfeel and body are perfectly complementary. I’ve been drinking LT for a good few years, and I can say this is high quality. Will drink this anytime I see it.

Someone recommended this to me a couple of months ago and I put off tasting it because of my previous experiences with Long Trail. Not that I don't care for Long Trail, just that nothing has really moved me. Limbo changes all of that. I was really impressed with the hop selection for this beer and it has the perfect finish (doesn't peel away the enamel from the back of your teeth). Here's hoping I can find it on tap somewhere soon.
