Tastes like a failed IPA combined with some fruit giving it a confusing dissatisfying flavor. Long Trail killed their brew masters series and replaced with this, an unfortunate decision. Throw me a bone longtrail and give me your old good beers back.

03/27/14 From bottle. Not my kind of beer. Lots of flavor, but not the kind I like. At least it's not obnoxious, it's just not for me. PART II: this improved as it warmed to room temp. Gets close the Sculpin territory. Drinkable.

Galaxy hops are cool. But this ringwood yeast imparts a banana like flavor and smell that sort of ruins this beer for me.

Pour is a hazed dark copper color with a fairly tight white head. Nose is biscuity malt and stale grain with a hint of resin hop. Taste follow suit on sweeter, stale bread and grain, sweet caramel, faint hop. This is a very subdued IPA with lots of grainy malt that aren't very expressive or well pulled together.
