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

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.

Pured into tulip glass. Nice hazy yellow,amber color. Two inch white foam head. Reduced to lacing. Sticky on glass.Fruity pine hops, little bite to the carbonation. Really good IPA. I would get this one again. Makes me want to eat seafood.. Give this one a try

One of the better IPA's in bottle, at least here in Mass where it can be found reasonably fresh.
(I bought this at a small package store that keeps all its beer refrigerated). The distinctive taste of this beer is its pine flavor, one of the few on the market that has not moved toward a pronounced citrus flavor. The beer is malty but the high ibu's and the pineniness give it a distinctive dry character that is great with Stilton cheese. I've also had this on draft and would rate it equally highly.
