Steph’s New Brew Review: Space Juice

Long Trail Brewing Company Space Juice, an 8.7% ABV Double IPA

Appearance Orange amber color; long-lasting fluffy white head.
Aroma Blend of citrusy, earthy, fruity, floral hop aromas.
Taste Fruity, spicy, earthy hop notes balanced with bready malt notes; lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel Medium bodied with lighter carbonation.
Overall Kaleidoscope of hops!

Long Trail Ale was first sold in 1989. Known as Mountain Brewers back then, the crew brewed in a 45 barrel brewhouse in the basement of the Old Woolen Mill in Bridgewater Corners, Vermont. Back then Vermont was better known for maple syrup than beer.

Today Long Trail offers a family of beers that includes year round beers like Limbo IPA and the original Long Trail Ale, as well as seasonals like Sick Day and Stand Out. The Bush & Barrel series includes Imperial Pumpkin and Imperial Stout, while other limited beers like the Brown Bag series and Farm House series appear occasionally.

A Double-IPA of the cosmic kind, this super-limited offering is brewed with two-row and caramel malts that lay the foundation for hops, hops and more hops.

The truth is out there, so send your taste buds to orbit with the out-of-this-world citrus and pine notes of Galaxy, Mosaic, Citra, Columbus and Ella hops.
