Compared to most IPAs this one has a very dry hop flavor. I like my IPAs soaking with hops, but this one leaves the taste buds asking for more punch. Not bad though.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’ve had this beer many times over the years, but I’ve finally decided to add my review. Overall, this is a fairly underwhelming IPA. Although its appearance is decent (clear, golden color), the total experience is not what one typically looks forward to when drinking an IPA. Instead of a hoppiness that assaults your senses, Long Hammer is only lightly bitter with a thin feel to the finish and after taste. If you want a mild IPA, you would probably like this one.

Not much to write about, a simple, thin IPA (or pale ale if you want to correctly title it) was expecting a lot more of everything from this one. Only bitterness from hops, very minimal hoppiness. Odd palate.

Clear gold/bronze. Dense white head. Floral and grassy hops and lightly sweet malt. Same flavors with lots of earthy bitterness, even a bit astringent. Medium body, balanced carbonation. Meh.

This may become the only beer I drink from now on. I’m having a hard time understand some of these lower ratings. Please do yourself a favor a try this meticulously crafted masterpiece of an IPA: you will not be disappointed!

Smells better than it tastes, and it doesn’t smell all that good to me.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fairly boring IPA. Light bodied and thin with soft hoppy and citrus aromas. Not very good considering all the awsome IPA’s that are out there.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours dark gold with a full head. Mild hop aroma. Medium palate. Flavor starts out hoppy with a slightly bitter finish. A good IPA for its price.

Bottle with Chip Portland 08.’
This 12 pack was dropped down a flight of stairs en-route to my flat. Chip picked it during an ice slush storm while visiting. This is a light bodied, low hop, low malt IPA. Its designed to be a flagship style beer for session consumption. Its pretty basic and understated. Not a sipper. You could rip this right out of the bottle.
