2.64/5 rDev -26.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: Clear golden with a nice two finger head with some healthy lacing. Looks like apple juice. Lots of carbonation. Not bad
Aroma: Pine and grass. Light citrus. Mild toasted malts in the background but mostly all hops
Taste: Way more subdued than I was expecting. Some citrus and a little bit of floral grassy hops but it stops there. The malts almost completely cancel out the hop pressence. But there's not much to the malts either. Biscuity and that's it. I'm all for a balanced beer but not when it leaves you without any flavor. Bland and unremarkable
Mouthfeel: True to Long Trail this is very clean and refreshing. If it weren't for the color I would think I was drinking water...which isn't a good thing
Overall: Wouldn't recommend personally. Not for fans of IPAs or any other style. Just not enough happening here for my blood. I wanted to like it, but it just didn't happen
Edit: I'm reading other reviews which seem favorable so maybe I just got a bad bottle but I wouldn't try it again based on my experience
Serving type: bottle
