from bottle, poured to glass. nice head, some of which lingers like soap. good looking beer. very pleasant aroma, hops and tangerine. taste, sweet and fairly complex: hops, fruit (peach, plum, orange), slightly nutty and slightly caramel. a little "woodsy" like pine sap. strong taste for a second, then drops dramatically. somewhat bitter aftertaste, hoppy, nutty (particularly almond) and pine sap again. feels like soapy or oily water in the mouth. a little fizzy, nowhere near heavy. i like this beer, another good redhook product.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Slightly hazy yellowish amber with a great nose of aromatic American hops and fruit salad. Simple, highly drinkable and very nice.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bomber. Pours a clear gold with a soap scum white head and zero lacing. Nose is malt and sweet citrus. Taste is caramel, fruity juicyfruit gum and a mild bitter piney hop finish. Light to medium mouth feel. Doesn’t hold up well with the big gun IPAs, but it’s drinkable and sessionable at this ABV, which is what I think this was intended.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2008
Cask at GBBF 08. Hazy gold, no head. Lovely hoppy aroma, some fruit salad in mouth. Nice to have some US hops at last. It’s somewhat peppery. Good tasty hops. Touch of syrup to the malts and a little too empty on the toffee malts, but fine.

Not a bad IPA nothing outstanding. Dry hoppiness with a decent duration. Clear amber/yellow body. Decent head with good lacing. Average at best.

This was a solid IPA. Definitely nothing special about it but it does the job I guess.

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.

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.
