Impressed, first New England IPA that I've tried that I really liked! Could most definitely compete with the best of them. Kudos, Long Trail, kudos! Hoppy, refreshing, loved it!

The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber to orange color with a slim white foamy head that dissipated within less than twenty seconds. Barely any lacing stuck or even showed. The smell had bittersweet citrus hops with a light honey in the background. The taste was bittersweet through citrus elements of sticky fresh hops. It has a nice lingering sweet sticky aftertaste and fresh sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued and carried a decent harshness to the feel. Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again.

No apparent dating, so unsure of it's age.
Pours an almost glowing orange-amber, with moderate white head and lacing.

Aroma is booze/solvent(not in a bad way)/dank/floral hops.

Flavor is same as aroma, plus at least four separate, not-quite-identifiable (too brief) fruity sensations. One is tangerine-like, but not quite that.

Feel and carbonation are both smooth, and barely noticeable, though by no means is it under-carbonated. Just right to enjoy, without thinking about it.

Overall, very good, and easy-drinking, with the 7.6% abv all but invisible, despite the aroma. I'll be getting more of this.

Additional note : for those of you that are regular imbibers of the Enjoy By series, this is very similar to the best (to me) iterations of that, with perhaps more (brief) fruity notes in the middle.

Amazing initial fruity/citrus punch, but something about the aftertaste was a little off-putting to me, but I didn't mind it too much. Overall a great beer. Packs a punch but doesn't taste too boozy @ 7.6%.

Poured from bottle with thin head and hazy dark orange color. Has a malty taste which gives it a little boozy feel but still some fruity citrus notes which is more apparent in the smell. This is an interesting beer. I enjoyed slow drinking in the evening. Nice ale.
