Long Trail Double Bag

Brewery: Long Trail Brewing Co.
Style: Alt
Location: Bridgewater Corners, VT
Brewer Homepage
Rating: A-

Double Bag is a potent brew at 7.2% alcohol, but it is very well-balanced. Drink this one in moderation, because it can really sneak up on you.

Double Bag is a slightly hazy in the glass with a deep amber color. To me, the aroma of this beer reminds me of walking through a brewery. The nose is sweet and malty with a touch of hops.

On the palate, there is a sweetness that comes to the front. There is a touch of bitterness and a hoppy tang that is a a bit subdued, but acts as a nice undertone to the sweetness. The sweetness and hops then start to fade, leaving a nice malty finish.
