English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  6.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Real India Pale Ale (IPA), as it was first brewed in the days of the British Empire, was not the carefully filtered brew that we call IPA beer today. The first IPAs were unfiltered and featured extra hops and higher strength as a preservative for the long trip from England to the colony of India. Our Traditional IPA ale is naturally carbonated, dry-hopped & unfiltered like the old days.

Light-amber pour. Cloudy and slippery mouthfeel like all Long Trails. Decent head at first, then persistent but thin white lacing. Well-carbonated. Straight up hop profile (cascade I think), lingering bitter finish. Could be less sweet, even hoppier. But still very enjoyable.

As usual, long trail disappoints. Good bitterness, but lacks any real flavor.

Another addition to the make-your-own 6'er from Wegmans. Again, no bottled-on date.

Unfiltered amber with billowy, white head. Smells of indistinct hops and the sweetness of bread. One of the mildest IPAs I've experienced; maybe more appropriately labeled a Pale Ale. I kept wanting to throw it out, but something kept bringing me back for another sip. Very smooth, well-balanced, and easily drinkable. If your palate has been wracked by DIPAs and IIPAs lately, this may remind you why you started drinking IPAs in the first place.
Enjoy!

This beer does not need any improvement
