Pours out unfiltered but with no chunks of yeast which is good. Just more of a thick haze and some crumbs of yeast in there. The smell kinda reminds me of Troegs Nugget Nectar in a way with the really fruity tropical hop smells. The smell is also very strong on thick potent smells of grapefruit. This is a very grapefruity Double IPA. On the taste I get a smooth sweetness in the beginning with a bit of wheat malt in the middle and then the grapefruity taste coming through pretty strong with a dry chalky bitterness.
More hop flavor than hop bitterness. The hop flavor is pure grapefruit. The hop bitterness isn't as strong as other IPA's I've had but definitely there especially as it warms and you drink it more. The alcohol taste and smell become a LITTLE more noticeable as you drink but its nothing to really give it any less of a score. I also get the yeast sediment a little on my tongue which gives it a dry chalky mouthfeel. All in all definitely worth the money and definitely the best Long Trail beer I've ever had from them.

1 Pint, 6 oz bottle poured into a glass.
A: Cloudy burnt orange color. Beautiful for an IPA. Practically no head at all.
S: Nice hop aroma with a little bit of pine scent as well.
T: Love the fairly high IBU count (86). Nice hop taste with a little bit of sweetness. Unfortunately, they didn't balance the hop taste with the alcohol taste.
M: Carbonation is fine but the alcohol taste is not masked as much as it should be.
O: One of the best Double IPAs I've had. I picked this up for just $3.99. I would spend that on this any day of the week.
