Details on VT IPA from www.longtrail.com:

Introducing our take on the hazy, hoppy style coming from the Green Mountains! Our brewers have been developing this recipe for the past year; playing around with yeast strains and hop combinations in search of a smooth, juicy offering that pleases palates.

With VT IPA they found the perfect balance of tropical fruit and citrus flavors through a heavy dry-hopping of Citra and Amarillo hops, which give distinct tangerine, mango, pineapple and grapefruit character.

The juicy hop profile is complemented by the grist, which features a heavy hand of flaked oats and aromatic Munich malt to deliver a smooth mouthfeel and hazy appearance. What sets this beer apart -aside from the soft bitterness – is the introduction of a new yeast strain that provides the beer with more neutral notes and juicy esters that enhance the hops.
