3.78/5  rDev -8.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

had passed this one up a few months back, but the reviews made me hunt it down this weekend. found a six pack with a bottled date of Jan 23 (28?) and snagged it.

definitely a more complex variety of flavor than Long Trail's regular IPA - although with the packaging/labeling it seems pretty obvious Long Trail doesn't want you to think about their previous branding with cartoon-ish landscapes & animals when you buy Limbo, this appears to be a new angle for them.

Nose is fantastic, but I don't think the rest of the beer lives up to it. Taste is a litle thin, mouthfeel is a little waterey. There's IPA's that get better as you travel through into the sip, and there's IPA's that get better as you get down the glass, this one is neither. It kinda goes downhill from there.

Don't get me wrong, it's a very good IPA, but in the last few weeks I've gone back to IPA's and have recently had fresh batches of Lunch & Another One from MBC, Meadowlark from Pretty Things, and Flower Power. (I'd also put Baxter's Stowaway & Newburyport's GreenHead ahead of this one). Tough competition for sure, that Limbo can't hang with.

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.
4/5.
