I finished a book about the history of dinosaurs a few days ago. Despite not really being interested in dinosaurs, the tone was pleasantly conversational and I got through it in a day. I’m trying to read 200 books this year and have finished 4 so far. It’s definitely a lofty goal, but I think I can do it.
Style: American Double/Imperial IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “WELCOME TO VERMONT… HAVE AN IPA! Introducing the latest tall can from Vermont’s Long Trail Brewing Company. Vermont Double IPA is full of fruity, juicy and dank hop flavors with a light, soft mouthfeel and slight alcohol presence. The recipe features green mountains of Amarillo, Citra and Simcoe hops.”
Random: It’s been well over a year since I’ve had a beer from Long Trail.
This beer poured with less than a finger of pure white head. It dissipated almost instantly and left very little lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy, bright yellow color with some carbonation visible, despite the cloudiness. The nose was filled with lots of piney hops. There was grass clippings as well and grapefruit peel. It reminded me of an old school IPA. The Simcoe was strong with this one. The taste was filled with the same dank hops. It had pine needles and then grapefruit segments. There was a bit of sweet malt to balance it out. The alcohol was apparent, but not overwhelming. The body was on the heavier side with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with pine. I really enjoyed this beer. It was a pleasant change from all of the hazebombs.
