bigtaster (803) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours straw yellow with a hint of gold. Wispy white head. Light aroma of citrus and floral hops. Moderate hop flavor with a long finish. Light bodied. Very drinkable, lacking in flavor.

RedSox2004 (1443) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Did a taste test of this against a Hop Ottin IPA, and the Long Hammer came up woefully short. Poured ok, with a full head, but pretty pale for an IPA. The aroma and flavor both had very little in terms of hops, considering the style. Just not a very inspiring beer, and I’m not likely to go for another.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2008
Bottle, thanks to Uhre. A golden beer with a off-white head. The aroma and taste is of floral hops, grass and sweet malt. Medium body with a bitter dry finish.

bottled and on tap: misty golden brown color, full bodied, wouldn’t recommend drinking more than one, gets kinda old.

marcus (7563) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 22, 2008
This orange ale poured with a decent off-white head and a floral hoppy aroma. There is a strong grassy hop flavor that leaves a bitter palate. A decent refreshing drink.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - FEB 18, 2008
On tap. Poured a clear golden with a fizzy white head. Somewhat faint aroma of piney hops and some butter toffee. Flavor follows with bitterness up front with tastes of grass and pine needles with a bit of alcohol and an earthy dusty taste. Leans towards a bitter finish that loses a bit of hop flavor. I wouldn’t call this deep or especially complex, but it did its job during the time I was drinking it.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 18, 2008
12 oz bottle purchased at John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured a clear light orange color. Head was spritzy, white, and reduced quickly to a thin film. Aroma was of steeping barley, light caramel, and grassy hops. Fruity with only minimal sweetness. I tasted subdued apple, some kind of berry, and grassy hop. Paper thin body with mild hop bitterness of about 3-4 out of 10. Not much here worthy of praise.

HoppyGuy (111) - Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Nice light amber color with decent thin head. I liked the balance of hops and malt, and the aroma had a nice floral touch to it. Not as in-your-face as a lot of other IPAs, but still very drinkable. This could be good on a hot summer day when you’re grilling dinner in the back yard.

rustbucket0873 (300) - Krikville, New York, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Pours a light copper color with a large head. the aroma is of strong hops, with grapefruit. this taste really watery, and corn tasting too, not much like an ipa. not a very good beer in my opinion

lamas (1443) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle. Bottled on: 01/15/08. Pours a very pale copper with a small light-tan head. A fair grapefruit/pine aroma, only very subtle in a pilsner-ish kinda way. Thin and watery with a good bit of carbonation. Tastes like a combination pilsner/IPA too. Grainy...hints of corn...bitter grapefruit and orange rind...dry finish. Drinkable enough.
