Tastes like a failed IPA combined with some fruit giving it a confusing dissatisfying flavor. Long Trail killed their brew masters series and replaced with this, an unfortunate decision. Throw me a bone longtrail and give me your old good beers back.

Pour is a hazed dark copper color with a fairly tight white head. Nose is biscuity malt and stale grain with a hint of resin hop. Taste follow suit on sweeter, stale bread and grain, sweet caramel, faint hop. This is a very subdued IPA with lots of grainy malt that aren't very expressive or well pulled together.

Had cold and on tap at The Purple Pub in Williamstown, MA. As in other reviews I've made, I'll make the disclaimer that I think I have relatively insensitive taste buds, so I tend to like big beers, strong coffee, spicy food. Someone with more gentle or discerning taste buds might feel differently.
Appearance: A pleasant, slightly hazy burnt orange. Moderate carbonation and a nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: Brown rice, but no other notes per se. No hops at all. Don't get much here, maybe partially because the beer was quite cold.
Taste: Doesn't taste bad at all, but as with the smell, not a punch to the flavor. I get that soft brown rice flavor again, all the way through, a little lemon in the middle as the beer warmed up, and a pleasant but subtle hops bite lingering at the end. Fairly dry and crisp, never sweet.
Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, and the lingering hops for a second or two is pleasant. Would prefer a little more malt sweetness personally.
Quite drinkable, no off-tastes or nasty surprises. I could see this working well for a lot of people as a session beer. Just personally prefer my IPAs to have strong, opposing flavors that come to a balanced consensus like those doubles on the West Coast have (Racer 5, Maximus,...).

Pours a beautiful gold hue with a two-finger head that leaves some lacing along the edges. The neck of the bottle speaks of "new breeds of hops coming out of Australia and the Pacific Northwest." I thought New Zealand was the current rage of hops?
Mango and pineapple stand out in the nose. Malt backbone is detectable as well.
Taste is a mixed bag. Grapefruit and mango flavors clash with pine tar in the mouth. Bitter but not in a desirable manner.
Ditto for mouthfeel. Jumbled and the alcohol heat makes it unappealing.
I think that the problem with this beer is that it can't decide what it wants to be. Does it want to be a traditional East Coast IPA? A "fruity" western IPA with exotic hops? Neither? It's worth a try but I can't help but wonder if it would taste better straight from the tap?
