3.68/5 rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Bright, golden orange - slightly hazy but mostly clear - small, off-white head, fades to a wispy cap, leaves spotty and streaky lacing
Smell: Damp citrus and pine - floral, oily, and lightly fleshy grapefruit, with some pine needles - lightly grassy, not particularly aggressive overall - cooked and caramelized malts, pretty clean, some booze
Taste: Juicy, lightly sweet, and boozy - fleshy, oily, and floral citrus - orange and grapefruit rinds - resiny pine and some sweet mint - nicely bitter - cooked, caramelized malts and caramel malts - treads the line between nicely sweet and too sweet, and it works - alcohol is pretty obvious, tastes stronger than 8.6% honestly
Mouthfeel: On the heavy side of medium, oily, lightly carbonated
Overall: Good, but has some stiff competition
Double IPAs from Vermont are a force to be reckoned with... in general. Long Trail DIPA is good, but it's not fantastic. I'm not in love with the oily, rind-forward hop profile, or the alcohol. Regardless, it's good for what it is.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. There's a freshness code stamped on the bottleneck but it's smeared and unreadable.
A- Pours a hazy dark amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick bubbly ring around the edge of the glass and some small bubbly patches of surface foam. Tight clusters of semi-resilient lacing.
S- Musty, earthy hop aroma. Smells like New Zealand hops but I'm not sure.
T- Similarly earthy in the flavor with a bit of citrus on top. Zesty hop bitterness is assertive yet enjoyable. Easy drinking for the ABV.
M- Tingly and bright with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.
O- A very smooth and flavorful DIPA. I only got a single but I should've picked up a 4- or 6-pack.
