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.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2007 Tap in Solvang, CA. Golden with smallish head. Sweet flowery and a bit skunky hoppy nose. Flavor has hops, but not overly bitter. Some sweetness. Pretty easy considering itís 6.5 %.

EithCubes (4840) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Rating number 1400. Bottled 082807. Sweet fruity nose - rush of grapefruit and other citrus, mild pine with somewhat exotic lychee-ish notes. Neon-orange body color, really quite strange, with a soapy beige head. Taste is sharp and bitter, fruity with a bit of bread coming through in the aftertaste, but the effect is most tropical on the whole. Hops are decent but not complex, taste is robust, body is a bit thin but definitely not watery. Iíll have to agree, much bolder than expected, and good as far as daily session+ís go, but in the end, doesnít really reach far past average.

xarcadia (44) - California, USA - NOV 3, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2007 The aroma is herbal and slightly skunky. Nice smooth flavor, but nothing too exciting. Itís not super-hoppy; I wouldnít really call this an IPA.

Not too bad. Not much hop flavor.But i must say for only $6.99 a six pack its not half bad.

after a few other decent beers i tried this one on draft at the Yard House. Didnít have much on the nose and didnít really impress me as an IPA. no lingering hop flavor and subtle skunky maltiness followed that up. Though on the plus side it smelled slightly floral and a bit of citrus too. Maybe im just upset cause I always expect beers to be more agressive.

Shag (2603) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2007
This was a dark golden color with a small head. A faint aroma of lemons and grapefruit. The flavor is not really bitter at all and contains some more lemons and grapefruit. Overall there is nothing wrong with this beer but itís very dull for an IPA

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Bottle. Pours crystal clear golden with voluminous head and good lacing. Fruity and floral hop aroma. Smooth taste, but a bit thin on flavor. Hops are a little subdued for an IPA.

intresting ipa. it was dark in the bar but the beer appeared to have an orange hue with a good white head that lasts. the aroma was very citrus, i thought maybe they had but a lemon in it was so pronounced. lacks the depth of a really godd ipa but has a nice malty sweet traste and slightly bitter finish.
