Picked up two 6 packs at Top Shelf in Hampton, Born-on-date was only about a week out.
Appearance is very clear, no haze, no chud. Very orange with a hint of pink. Presents well. Nice two-finger head.
The aroma is super fruity, no pine or juniper, all PEAR, PEAR, PEAR!.
The mouthfeel is great if you're into carbonation, nothing flat about this one.
The taste is fantastic, really enjoyable. Hoppy, carbonated, fruity and dry. A near perfect american ipa.
All that said, I think Long Trail has been a trash brewery putting out piss for quite a while. I'm not sure whats changed up on Route 4 but the label is great, the graphics are great, the 6-pack holder is great and most importantly the beer is fantastic. Next time I had to Killington I'll have to stop in, if they try to serve me some sort of a sandwich soaked in "Blackberry Wheat" i'll know this beer was a fluke.

I know that I have been eschewing bottles and trying to reduce my backlog, but my high school classmate, Mike, came by last night for a bomber bottle blowout and dropped one off for me. It was cold when he got here, so I kept it cooling in the reefer and decided to knock it out while I transcribe some of the notes from our debacle.
From the bottle: "A big, mouthwatering IPA, brimming with all the flavors and aromas of the new breed of hops coming out of Australia and the Pacific northwest."
My anxiousness led to an aggro pour which resulted in a pseudo-cascade and two fingers of rocky, eggshell-white head with good retention. Color was that shade of deep-gold (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity that always seems to call forth the Unholy Trio of Mammon, Croesus and Midas. Nose had the tropical fruit quality of a roll of Tropical Fruit Life Savers! We used to unroll one of each (mango, coconut, papaya, pineapple) and put them all in our mouth at the same time. That sensation was what this smelled like (plus a little bit of dank for good measure). Hee hee. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, frankly. The taste was fantastic! Fruity as all get-out, not at all alcoholic and at 7.6%, with a grassy mellowness. Yowza! This was the antithesis of those Black/Cascadian IPAs, which seem to waste the hops, IMHO. Here, the hops were put to fantastic use. I took a break to put on my knitted hophead to enhance my enjoyment. Finish was bone-dry, hoppy as heck and unrelenting. It was a step below a DIPA, but the lingering fruitiness also put me in mind of Juicyfruit gum. I remember kissing a girl in high school that always chewed Juicyfruit. Good times, man, good times.
