This puts Long Trail on the map for me. Very satisfying, distinctive and well balanced. Making the move to the farmhouse and a more artisan offering seems like a bold and savvy move for Long Trail. This has become one of my go to ales. right up there with Oakshire watershed and Heady Topper. Perfect after a cross country ski at the Craftsbury Touring Center.

Long Trail Brewing Company continues to be the most consistent Vermont brewery and with the introduction of this beer, has asserted itself in my mind as the best Vermont brewery. Yes, HT is the best beer ever, but for me Limbo is the best IPA FOR ME!!!! A pleasant hop aroma that is not overwhelming, a mouth feel that is just shy of perfect, and a hint-of-grapefruit aftertaste that is pleasant without the sledgehammer affect is what motivates me to fall in love with Limbo. Well done Long Trail, you have provided me the perfect winter beer in Limbo!

A- Light amber color

S - This beer has a very distinct and special smell... my nose was in heaven at first sniff... tropical, citrus, soooo goood.

T - Amazing IPA with some of the most complex floral hops I have ever smelled/smelt... I can never remember which word is correct... If you know Long Trail then you understand how outside of their normal style this beer is! Please make more beers like this one!!!!

M- Light body

O - Very happy that this beer is getting popular! Seeing it in more and more stores! Limbo is going to be one of your favorites if you like crisp, west coast style IPAs. Enjoy.

One of the best IPAs Ive had in a very long time. Great citrusy taste and is excellent served out of a tap. The Long Trail Brewing Co. just started to put it on tap only around 3 months ago but I was fortunate enough to have it on tap. One of the beers that I feel like would be better served from a pint glass rather than a bottle but I do recommend it around 50 degrees with a 10 degree margin. Great mouthfeel, aroma and appearance but I would space it between eating

Honey colored and clear as a bell, an inch of bone white head, spotty lacing in the tulip.

Aroma is hop forward all the way: mouth watering scent of galaxy hops wafts into your nostrils and makes you salivate as if you are Pavlov's dog hearing a bell sound. Juicy tropical fruit aromas are abound.

Taste starts out bright and juicy with delicious tropical fruits followed by a piney wave accompanied by an orangey blast that makes the next sip more than welcome.

Mouthfeel is in on the lighter side of medium, carbonation is spot on with a nice bite, and the dry finish is superb.

Final marks are based on a combination of exceptional quality, outstanding price point @ $10.99 for a 12 oz. six pack, and abundant availability (supermarket and craft beer stores in Vermont and the Northeast). Limbo is an outstanding hop forward IPA that puts Long Trail on the map as a hip Vermont brewery.

Fresh growler poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. The first thing that hits you is the incredible sweet, floral/citrusy blast that fills your senses. Pours a nice orangey/copper color. Mouth feel is a bit thinner than I like. All in all an absolutely terrific IPA from Long Trail.
