COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The distinctive India Pale Ale style was developed by British brewers in the 1700s in order to create a sturdy beer that could survive long sea journeys to far-flung colonies where troops eagerly awaited the arrival of this sublime liquid refreshment. Long Hammer takes the traditional IPA brewing process one step further by dry hopping, or adding hops at the end of the brewing process with Cascade hops to give a wonderful hop aroma but not the overpowering hop taste. Long Hammer IPA is the beer you find yourself reaching for again and again, no matter what the occasion. Long Hammer pairs nicely with grilled meats, seafood, Mexican, Indian, Thai or other spicy ethnic foods. Available year round.

hazy gold with small, white head. Mild fruity aroma - tastes a little stronger than it smells, but is still pretty lackluster for an IPA. I definitely prefer a Pale Ale with more flavor & punch, though I suppose this makes it a little more drinkable from a volume/endurance standpoint....

Rated 8/26/07. 12 oz. bottle courtesy of íNaka. Golden Color and Floral hop nose. Malt start, bit of corn, then a small dose of hoppiness. No real after taste. Just blase. No repeats on this one

Smells lightly of citrus hops. Taste is weak citrus hops, like the smell. Not bad, but could be more flavorful.

12 oz. bottle. Pours out a hazy light gold with a soft hop aroma. Taste is also light with alcohol present. Mouth feel a little thin and watery on the palate. Lots of better IPAís out there.

Iíve had plenty of this at the E-Club at the Coast Guard Yard in Baltimore, MD. $5 pitcher, $1.50 pints. Nice light hoppiness to it, not a super heavy IPA, but one that is better then drinking bmc or the sorts.

IrishBoy (3754) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
IPA rating #100; bomber from Bottle Barn; nose of flowery and piney hops; slightly hazed dark gold with a small off-white head; flavor of piney hop bitterness; drinkable IPA, but nowhere near great!

Pours a golden color into the glass with minimal white head. The aroma is citrusy and piney, but the taste is just alright. It seems like a super safe approach to an IPA and a bit lacking in malt. That being said, if you wanted to sit around and drink it for a while, it would be light enough to drink a bunch of.

~Little to no head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Light goldnen color. Looks very appealing. ~ Smells like light hops. Smells good.~ Carbonation has a soft tingle.~ Light hoppy taste, could stand to be stronger in hops, but I enjoy it. Beautiful burp aftertaste.~ On sale at Belair for $12.99 case of 12. Probably wonít buy this beer again.

"My First" IPA. Barely a hint of hops, and a very watery finish. Definitely pass on this one.

I have to say that overall I was surprised by this beer. Coming from such a larger brewery, I didnít think that it would be able to deliver the flavor profile it did. To me this is a typical, though slightly tame, IPA. If your bottle is going to be like the one I got, itís worth trying.
