Weathered copper orange in color with a heavy haze. Poured with a creamy white foam with medium low retention. Medoum earthy, spicy and resinous hop aromas with solid caramel malt aromas. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Creamy smooth feel through the middle with pleasant boozy warmth from the middle to the end. Medium caramel malt and earthy, spicy, resinous hop flavors up front followed by medium high hop bitterness. Spicy hop bitterness and caramel malt flavors continue on the back end as the boozy warmth kicks in. Finished semi dryly with lingering notes of dark caramel malt and spicy hops. Definitely a malty IPA but it works wonderfully with the hop character. Great feel and pleasant booziness.

7/30...pours semi-clear copper, fast settling white foam. Gritty pine based bitter nose. Maybe rinds in there too. Big bold juicy bitter flavor.Citrus and grass gets swirled in the mix. Mellow with a lingering burn to close. Creatively made IPA.

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!
