Best long trail by far! Really great smell similar to stone enjoy by. Hops hit your tongue like a sledge hammer. Drinks like an 8 percent beer. Hop heads rejoice this one is a must have.

Totally digging what Long Trail has been up to recently--Space Juice, Unearthed and now this! My new everyday go to. Well done to the crew in Bridgewater.

Deliciously dank!! This IPA has Columbus, Equinox, mosaic, and chinook hops; great complexity. Piney, resiney, juicy, and slight tropical fruit notes. Great beer, very drinkable at 6.5%. Good job Long Trail!! Keep making IPAs like this!!

Eyes: Pours a rich golden ruby hue. A creamy thick 1/2 in head settles at the top. Solid retention and even lacing around the glass.

Nose: A punch counter punch of barky pine and apricot juice. A sweet pineapple and mango notes follow. A beautiful aroma from this beer.

Tongue: Resin bitterness, followed by a sweet hang of tropical fruits. A slight tarty drop remains throughout. Flavor is robust but not overpowering. Finishes dry. Overall this IPA leans more toward the pine/floral direction rather than the sweet fruity route.

I really enjoyed this beer. Simple, but strong flavors. Decently priced and with a moderate 6.5 % ABV, its right in between a session and a sipper. This reminds me of pine drops IPA from Deschutes brewery out in Oregon if you have ever had that.

If you're looking for a delicious but not knock your socks off type of IPA, and don't mind a bit of piney bitterness, then I would definitely give this a shot. Long trail is quickly becoming one of my favorite breweries up here in the northeast.
