Long Trail's IPA poured deep golden into my pint glass. There was a yeast cloud from the bottle conditioning even after a careful pour. Looks like what you would encounter from a wit. A 1 finger micro bubbled white head sits on top but fades fairly quickly to a solid top coat.Big lively carbonation bubbles raise from the bottom of my glass.

Wow this beer smells much different than I picture an IPA. It actually smells like a wit too. There's orange peel in the nose along with a yeast spiciness. There is definately some clove as well. Smells refreshing. Wow! Just like a white ale.

I honestly think that this is a wit that is labeled wrong. The yeast spice is in the taste as well. A splash of orange and a sprinkling of white pepperand some other spices including clove. There's a slight bite on the swallow but it's more from the spiciness than any hops.

The mouthfeel is good. It's on the lighter side of medium. Lively carbonation tickles the tongue and pushes this ale through the palate. Velvety smooth. Very refreshing.

Drinkability is high. This is a definate summer beer to be enjoyed on a hot afternoon.

I'm confused on this because it is supposed to be an IPA but it's clearly a white ale. Everything about it points to being a white ale. With that being said it is a good brew.

Notes: I reviewed this beer based on the characteristics as opposed to the style guidelines because of the differences I mentioned.
