Great IPA
Pours a beautiful golden hue with plenty of carbonation and a 2 finger head.
The nose is grapefruit and tangerine. The grapefruit takes over on the tongue.
Great citrus finish,
Overall an excellent IPA. Great job Long Trail.

Citrus aroma hits you right in the face followed by good, clean citrusy hops up front and a smooth bitter finish that is also refreshing. Great beer!

Little over a finger of eggshell white foam, mostly even surface with a couple of islands of larger bubbles, leaves behind long, thin streaks of sticky lacing, Cloudy orange rust to yellow hued liquid, fully opaque with a large amount of muscular bubbles swirling upwards. Wisely starts off with sweeter orange, tangerine citrus which sets you at ease before leafy herbal matter, pretzel dough, pepper, pine cones and iron flecks exercise themselves, the pineapple, nectarine, passion fruit has bite but too little juice to really soak into the nostrils. Medium-bodied, the carbonation tends to firm it up more than lift. The grapefruit, lemon, sour orange citrus really revs it up as does the pine. More muted floral aspect softens the contours, biscuit actually sweetens it. Maybe at times a sprinkle of cocoa and then caramel. Sticks to the palate pretty well. Still, dryness of finish truncates the peach, nectarine, pineapple fruit, no one is gonna confuse this with Lagunitas. Not really that herbaceous but it is soapy at moments. Whatever flaws it may have, it handles itself confidently and doesn’t push the envelope too far and thus you could easily not notice putting back 3-4 of them in an evening.

Not a big Long Trail fan but this is very good. Their best beer I've had to date.

Consumed straight from a bottle; I know it's heresy but i was served it as a guest.

From what I have seen in pictures it appears to be orange. I can't accurately comment on this aspect. Even out of the bottle I get some tropical fruit, some pineapple, fresh citrus, and maybe a bit of mango, on the nose. On the palate I get the pinnacle of balance in an ipa. Juicy, tropical fruits come through at the forefront followed up the the slightest but appropriate balance of some pale caramel malts, and maybe a bit of a bready flavor. I was not expecting something like this from Long Trail at all. Highly recommend it; it's easily one of the better IPAs I've ever had. I would definitely consider buying this again and enjoying the full experience in a snifter or tulip.

Pours golden and with a blush on it. Orangey . Creamy head of foam and this resembles a ripe apricot in the glass. Lovely. Nose is sweet fruit nectar and honey. Candied fruit peel, perfume from floral, fresh orange and dry cracker malt. Drinks well, with a good balance and some brash malt. Earthy pine and a somewhat pungent herbal finish this one. Moderate bitter that takes good hold. Mouthfeel is soft but there are a few bubbles.
