This is a go-to beer for me. Readily available, decent price point, and a fine example of a higher octane IPA.
This has the familiar yeast smell and flavor from other Long Trail Farmhouse blends - very similar nose to the farmhouse 12 pack (also worth checking out). This beer smells fantastic, with lots of tropical notes, melon, grass, and bubblegum. Overall super fresh and clean smelling. Taste is pretty dry, floral, fruity, and smooth. I find some similarities with Lagunitas Sucks.
Seek this beer out. It is very good.

This is an excellent example of a well balanced IPA. A pleasant fruity smell starts the experience. Subtle hops and grain presence, and not overly bitter on the finish. 7.6% alcohol is well masked. An easy drinking beer that has become my go to offering considering the availability and price point ($10-11) per sixer. The best effort from Longtrail to date. Underrated.
