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.

This is a great IPA. Maybe not the greatest that money can buy, but great tasting and smooth quality with a strong hoppy flavor. I am not sure why this beer isn’t rated higher, but I’ll definitely be buying more of these if I can find them in the 6-packs (I got this one in a Redhook Sampler).

orange/copper color with debris floating in it with no head what so ever. the taste is a little malt with a rather light amount of hops for an ipa. i actually like this one because most ipa’s are stronger on the hops than i prefer.

Assertive bitterness without too much pine or citrus gettin in the way. I enjoyed this one and kinda with there were more of these diminutive malt IPAs in BC.

Tap. Pours a amber color with very small lacing. Hops are definetly present, but nothing too spectacular.

djd07 (3282) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2007
On tap at Ashford Pub. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head that diminishes rather quickly. The aroma is a light hop and citrus. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a strong grapefruit with a slighty bitter finish, real easy to drink. A decent IPA from Redhook.

thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Sample @ Portsmouth, NH brewery. Pours a golden amber color with a short and barely-lingering white head. Aroma is earthy notes and citrus hops. Taste is slightly citrusy, with a slight hop bitterness and very little complexity or finish to speak of. A bit watery, and not what it could have been.

biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Pours a dark golden color with white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Lacing on glass was pretty nice. Aroma was of citrus hops and kind of grassy. Taste is also citrusy with grapefruit flavors definitely evident. Mouthfeel was good. This might not be the most complex IPA, but it is good IMO, I enjoyed it, and I would buy again.

Pours a clear yellow with small white head. Thin hop flavor - not much else going on here although it is drinkable.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2007
On tap at the Bier Stube in Moline. Light orange pour. Slightly floral hop aroma. Pretty simple flavor-wise: just a bit of citrusy hops and not too much malt to back it up. A simple beer and easy to drink.

355 ml bottle dated 112007. Pours almost orange with a significant amount of carbonation and a weak off-white head. The hops aroma is immediately evident as well as something kind of floral. Kind of a watery mouth feel, which was slightly disappointing but the hops flavor was powerful, which balanced the drinking pleasure a bit. I used to shy away from IPA’s, but lately I have been getting into them more. This one is more approachable for me. Not too strong but strong enough to bring out the best of an IPA.
