Bottled on 3/22. Toasted malt. Pine, grapefruit, resin, grass and pith. Chinook heavy. Some sweetness to carry the flavors, but ends up finishing dry. Not bad for an everyday ipa. Think a slightly lighter version of torpedo.

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!!

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.

So I hardly ever talk bad about a beer if I don't like it. Generally it's a style thing. "I don't really like the style, but I'm sure it's what they wanted it to taste like."
But This is a style I love. Tropical and juicy ipas with some tangy piney notes.
BUT this beer tastes weird to me. I get a mid mouth sulfur taste. I have never experienced this before.
Someone else described it as a cardboard taste.
Definitely not for me.

Pours a mild gold with a nice head into my glass. Took a while to find this on shelves.

Lots of pine and citrus notes from the 4 different types of hops used (Columbus, Equinox, Mosaic and Chinook).

Hop profile is pine-dominant with a very light citrus undertone. Old school bitterness that envelopes the mouth.

Finish is also old school with a burning pine bite.

This is certainly more complex than the prior IPA recipe that they were using. It tries to strike a balance between citrus and pine but ends up being pine-dominant. I would like to see it in cans.
