A: crystal clear; copper colored; 1 finger ivory head that receded slowly to a thick cap; OK lacing; steady stream of bubbles rising;

S: pine; grapefruit;

T: like most session IPAs, it's out of balance; grapefruit up front, then slightly harsh bitterness comes in; light bitterness at the finish that keeps building through the aftertaste;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation - a little creamy;

O: for me, IPAs need the malt back bone to balance the hops;

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Pale copper color, good clarity. Big citrus zest nose, spicy and grainy as well. Thinner body but we are drinking a "session" beer so that seems to be common. Loads of hop flavor; zest, rind, pith, peppery. Grassy maltiness, clean palate with a very dry finish.

Way too easy to drink, gettin my hop fix on without a huge hammer of alcohol is not a bad thing.

Long trail farm house session IPA
Thanks Smolly for sharing/trading
From the 12 bottle box, 12/10/13 etched on the bottle, brewed on date?
Pours near clear, with bubbles rising. Lite tan head, that leaves a nice tiny bubble film, collar and and some larger bubble webs of lace.
Citric hop nose.
Hoppy on the tongue from start to finish, with resin, pine and also some grapefruit. Sort of mushy and not as crisp as I’d prefer in the finish. Hops are quite biter, but I wouldn’t say they are really that flavorful.
Nothing special, just a middle of the road, drinkable IPA

Gold and copper color. Large, clumpy white foam, sticks around a while.
Pine tree and tropical fruity hop aroma thing. Grapefruit, lemmon and herbs.
A mild, zesty, lemmon, earthy grains and citrus style flavor. Pretty easy, pretty gentle. Good depth of charecter, malt is of sweet bread and golden wheat.
Good balance. Decent complexity but certainlt very easy, low abv and sessionable.
Taste and depth of flavor is good, the feel however, is a bit relaxed, no jazzy sensation and pretty mild. Good filler, not enough to keep my interest.

8/27...pours light copper, some white foam, some sticking. Notes of toffee, earth, grapefruits. Taste is a higher hoppy combined with light body. Strong residual bitter burn. Does what it sets out to do - an easy drinking hop forward IPA.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with a bottling date of 07-13-15. Sampled on August 8. 2015.

Mostly golden yellow and very heady pour with a slight haze.

Aroma leans toward the fruit and citrus hops more than bitter. Mild grainy malt note under it all.

Medium, rather chewy or slick body.

The malt character presents itself more in the taste and t ends with a pleasant fruity bite. Not a bad session IPA.
