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.

Another solid beer from the Long Trail company. This is pretty much what I think of when IPA is said.

Look: Bright amber with a white and lasting head, hazy and almost opaque.

Smell: Pine resin and citrus, somewhere been grapefruit and orange.

Taste: Same as the smell, and very well-balanced. Slightly bitter on the finish.

Feel: Nothing extraordinary, but with a slight bite to it.

Overall: This is exactly what I'd expect from a standard IPA. Citrusy, slightly bitter, quite refreshing.

Brilliant, slightly hazy orange-gold body with a fluffy 2 finger white head.
Biscuity, grainy malts, orange rind, grassy and earthy hops in both aroma and taste. Wonderfully creamy mouth feel, on the lighter side of medium, good carbonation. Wonderfully crushable English style IPA.

Appearance: Pours a hazy (unfiltered) golden, with a decent head of off-white suds. Thin but attractive loopy lacing.

Aroma: Citrus hops — orange and grapefruit, predominantly. Yum!

Taste: Crisp and delectable citrus hops here, very fruit-forward without much bitterness. This is a smooth-drinking and delicious IPA that is both approachable and session-worthy. Winner!
