BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Long Trail Brewing Co.
Vermont, United States
longtrail.com

Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Real India Pale Ale (IPA), as it was first brewed in the days of the British Empire, was not the carefully filtered brew that we call IPA beer today. The first IPAs were unfiltered and featured extra hops and higher strength as a preservative for the long trip from England to the colony of India. Our Traditional IPA ale is naturally carbonated, dry-hopped & unfiltered like the old days.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance is a golden colored body with no head and leaves a ringy spotty laciness around the glass. The smell has hops, subdued pine, mild malt background. The taste is bitter through the hops and the pine, subdued malts coming through as the beer warms. The palate is about a medium, sessionable, bitter yet malty coating over the mouth and tongue, no aftertaste, watery finish. Overall, not a bad IPA, good.
