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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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?

the long hammer ipa is not my favorite but itís a well rounded beer. a little much harsh bitterness and not enough smoothness. Not much fruity aroma or flower aroma. Nothing too impressive.

Bottle pours a clear copper color wiht a thin white head. Aroma of hops, pine, and citrus. Flavor is hoppy, some citrus and pine, with a nice dry finish with a bitter aftertaste.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice to know there is an IPA I donít like. Too much "pale." Pale color, pale nose, pale flavor (watery), with a sour/bitter sensation that coats the entire mouth. On tap and a busy downtown bar.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap. Light copper color. Really clear for an IPA. Mild hops in the nose. Flavor is way more APA than IPA. Balanced, but boring. I really wish I hadnít paid five bucks for this, but it was the only thing at the resturant that wasnít BMC.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap - Light copper, small head, if any the bartender pored it off. Light, but strong, hoppy aroma. The beer is see-through and looks watery. Flavor is a pleasant moderate amount of hop, floral, crystal cold, and aromatic. Texture is a little sweet and medium bodied. Not many bubbles are present but the beer does have a moderate carbonation bite.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle. Nice light golden color with a small-medium head. Nose was better than it tasted. A decent drinkable IPA, nothing special.
