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.

bottle - Pours slight hazy yellow with a one finger, lingering white head. The aroma is of course of hops. There’s some very mild citrus in there. The flavor is led by the hops as expected. The hops are strong enough for a good IPA and while they leave the characteristic bitter aftertaste, they don’t overpower the beer. However, there’s very little character here. I’m not getting the flavorful malts and citrus/pine notes that make a really good IPA.

A strong and flavorful IPA, a recommened buy since it is pretty easy to find in stores.

rman18 (311) - Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2008
Strong, flavorful indian pale ale. Very hoppy much like most ipa’s. Foggy look to it and a nice big head that last three forths of the way down the glass. Nice beer. Must try.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 6, 2008
Bottle at Holic, Kichijoji, Tokyo. Hazy amber with a small head. Green apples and citrus aroma. Good fruity and bitter flavours. A great IPA.

Unique69crazy (120) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 5, 2008
Pours tan and slightly cloudy. Aroma isn’t too strong with this one, a hoppiness I presume, was expecting a little more taste with this brew. Does have a bite followed by a grassy aftertaste.

tomciccateri (1021) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle dated 3 months prior. Medium body, hop-over-malt flavor balance. Moderate hop bitterness with underlying slightly sweet malty flavor. A reasonable balance. Can’t compete with micro/brewpub extreme flavors in their IPAs but fine for a mass-marketed $6/six-pack product.

illidurit (2172) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 3, 2008
On tap at some crappy dive bar. Poured into a pint glass. Orange color with an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is very muted, with a faint soapy hoppiness and a touch of sweetness. Flavor is pretty awful. Thin grainy maltiness with a dose of diacetyl, then soapiness, then a pathetic hop finish that is reasonably bitter but flavorless. This is supposed to be an IPA?? Mouthfeel is average, body is thinnish.

FatTony (175) - Augusta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2008
12 ounce bottle- pours a clear golden yellow with a lasting, if scant, white head. The aroma had a hint of fish. Taste was fresh, with only the slightest citrus hint, (luckily, the fish was absent). Refreshing and enjoyable without the typical IPA wince.

Good, drinkable IPA. doesn’t overwhelm you with hops. You can drink several of these and not feel your lips puckering.
