Interesting beer. It pours a golden/ clear color with a very small head. It has a piney aroma with notes of hop bite, and the finish is a bit unbalanced and drags its nails down my tongue slightly. Its ok, Id drink it again, and respectable for a Red Hook beer.

Clear amber pour with a fizzy white head. Very light aroma of hops and citrus peel. Similar in flavor, with a bit of malt sweetness coming through. While you will never mistake this for a great IPA, its not bad for the six-pack type.

Bottle pours golden with thin white head. Aroma is citrus hops. Taste is hops but well balanced with malt backing. Finish is hops, but does not linger.

12oz. Bottle pours a clear golden color with huge fluffy almost white semi sustaining head that left really good lacing. Aroma of light citrus and fruit, mainly hops. Taste is a little light as well, yet still centering around the hops. Again, a little light on the body and a watery texture ,but good carbonation and after taste. Slightly above average IPA, great for those hot days in the pool.

Bottle. Light red. Smell of hops and citrus. Taste of hops and citrus. A pretty good IPA. Better than the ESB. Pretty good stuff here.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Sampled from bottle and on draught. On draught the fruit is more prevalent. And more head. a light copper colour, medium bodied with a medium white head from both types. A higher abv, and just right for this beer. Not overwhelmingly hoppy but still pleasent tasting. A nice summertime brew perhaps?

hoplover (166) - Corpus Christi, Texas, USA - JUN 11, 2008
the long hammer ipa is not my favorite but its a well rounded beer. a little much harsh bitterness and not enough smoothness. Not much fruity aroma or flower aroma. Nothing too impressive.

12 oz bottle at a summer time bbq. Well it just goes to prove that atmospere and attitude go a long way when rating a beer. This one seemed real nice but I think it was more because I spent several hours before the bbq in a field watching childrens lacorsse and kept thinking about the bbq. Well I finally get there drink a few of these and all though the beer itself was nothing great for an IPA it certainly did hit the spot. Average at best for an IPA though.

pours gold with a 11/2 finger fluffy off white head. aroma is fruit loops/fruit punch, hops and malt with a little grain. the fruit punch is mainly pineapple and melon. has a light to medium body with descent lacing and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with some pine and is a little stronger than the aroma. has a dry hop aftertaste and is descent overall. the grain is a little stronger as it warms. it is more of a strong apa in the beginning to middle and then the pine kicks in. also has some orange peel when it warms. for $6.49 a six pack i would buy it again. best grocery store ipa where i live.
