Long Trail IPA, Longtrail Brewing Company

Well, I'll be the fist to admit that I have a hard time letting go of summer. So in honor of the passing season, I'll take a few posts to enjoy the remaining IPAs in my fridge. This one comes from the Long Trail Brewing Company in Vermont. Their beers are found all around the Northeast, but the brewery is great if you can make it. We stumbled across it by chance on a trip to Woodstock, Vermont. A great coincidence....

Their IPA pours an unfiltered amber with a thin head.

The aroma is of mild mild mild hop with some mild citrus.

The taste is very slight, first citrus, then a little hop. It has a medium body and is very crisp and refreshing.

The aftertaste is slight floral hops with citrus with a mild bite.

From their website:
5.9% with 56 IBUs
Malts: Crystal and Two Row
Hops: Nugget and Cascade

It is listed as an English IPA which explains the mild hop flavor.
