Long Trail Brewing Introduces VT IPA
(Bridgewater Corners, VT) – The Green Mountains are covered in white stuff thanks to a few late-season storms that revitalized the ski season. All the fresh snow has left us grinning ear-to-ear… Actually, we’re not sure whether it’s the snow or the Juicy IPA we’re introducing this week that has us smiling.
Speaking of Juicy IPA, VT IPA is our take on the hazy, hoppy style coming from Vermont. Brewed with flaked oats and aromatic Munich malts, which deliver a smooth mouthfeel and balancing biscuit malt flavor, respectively, this is our haziest offering to date thanks to the oat-filled grist.
On the hoppy side of things, late-additions of Citra and Amarillo hops deliver distinct tangerine, mango, pineapple and grapefruit flavors that are accentuated by a soft bitterness.
To top it off, this brew utilizes a new yeast strain full of juicy esters that complement the palate pleasing hop profile. VT IPA is the culmination of hours spent on our skunkworks pilot brewing system and we can’t wait to share this Green Mountain haze with you!
We sent kegs out this week, with fresh six-packs and 12-packs of 12oz. cans to follow. Come by our brewery this weekend for a pour; use our beer finder to locate near you; or check out one of our upcoming release parties (link here) to score a taste!
