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.

On tap @ E & O Trading Co, Larkspur. Poured much lighter and more of a golden hue than most IPAís with a fluffy off white head. This one smelled and tasted a little like a IIPA because of the pine/ citrus notes that carried through to the flavor. Clean, bitter finish was the best attribute, but I wonít have this one again.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2008 The usual suspects, really isnít very interesting at all. Maybe the most boring IPA iíve ever had? With that said, itís still not too bad, it has better intentions than most macros.

Flavorless IPA. If youíve never had an IPA before, itís a good starter. But if you long for the rich bitter hoppiness that is in a real IPA, steer clear. Very pedestrian.

meh, 12oz bottle, not really a fan of this one, not enough hops... would consider it a pale ale, in which case it would be great :D, actually mild hops finish which is easy sippin for most people

Smells a little fishy along with those slight hop aromas. Looks like the ubiquitous pale yellow american lager color and appearance. Tastes somewhat like soap, as with most IPA. Some mild carbonation. If you like IPA, itís on style for the most part except the aroma and you should try it. Lingering grapefruit rind bitter finish. Not as week in the bitter department as many here are saying. Will not buy again. Just plain rude if simply put. Very similar in taste and palate if compared to Stone IPA.

BigMook (8) - tacoma, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2007 does not count
This beer tastes like I took a bunch of caramel, 7UP, and some earwax and put into a bottle. I like the hoppy earwax taste. And yes, I have tasted my own earwax. This beer is nothing special, just a plain old IPA with a cool name and local ties.

Wow, Iím drinkning this right now, and thought Iíd do a little real-time rating. I didnít expect this to be scored so low! I love it! Clear amber-orange. Very fruity aroma, fantastic berries, peaches, citrus. Mildly malted, sweet fruit, resinous hop-laden bitter finish. A very drinkable, even refreshing, IPA. Iíd buy this one again for sure.

12oz bottle. Pours an uninspired clear gold with some carbonation. Decent lacing. The aroma doesnít bring much more to the table and is noticeably lacking. The flavour profile is pretty nicely hoppy, although itís just missing a little fullness to make it a really good beer.

12 oz bottle from Total Wine. Iím not sure what makes this any different than the other IPA Redhook has brewed for so long, I was under the impression that they added "Long Hammer" as part of their marketing plan. Same IPA, same old stuff.
