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.

Pours a cloudy golden yellow color with a nice white head. Aromas of piney hop,grapefruit and caramel malts.Upon first sip you get a huge hop wallop that quicley smoothes out.The body is a tic watery,but a wonderful session ipa!

It grew on me after the first sip, which was met with immediate revulsion. Itís a good attempt, but falls short. Like my wife said when she was in Providence, "they had this on tap, & Budweiser. I chose the Long Hammer."

This beer has a great floral hop aroma, but the finish has something to be desired. Otherwise, it is a mediocre West Coast IPA.

BMan1113VR (7834) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
On tap at the Outriger Canoe Club. Nice and refreshing. Pours a deep clear gold with a white head with very good lacing. Flavor is a nice refreshing bitter IPA style bite.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4831) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a small yellow-white head. The aroma was sweet grapefruit and pine. The flavor is bitter and tart fruity hops with a off tasting malt base. Sour tangy finish. This one smelled nice but in no way lived up to the aroma.

Ungstrup (29134) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2007. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, hops, and grapefruit, as well as light fruity esters. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of grapefruit, leading to a rather bitter and grassy finish.

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 isnít rated higher, but Iíll 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 ipaís are stronger on the hops than i prefer.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2007
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.
