206. Long Trail Double IPA
Similar to the 100 Barrel Series from Harpoon, Long Trail has their Brewmaster series. These are special recipes from their brewers are only available in 22 oz or on tap. Some are only available for certain months and others (like this one) are available year round.
Long Trail’s Double IPA has a very classy looking bomber and pours a nice golden with a fairly thick white head. Smell has a bit of everything; light pine, citrus and floral hops. Taste has plenty of hops with a fair amount of sweetness to offset the hop bitterness. Very well balanced and enjoyable. If you like Double IPAs you should give this one a try.
