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.

Good orange colour with a white head that discipates moderately quickly. Has a good hoppy taste and aroma.

I’m pretty sure this is the one I had. It had a good colour and decent head. Sweet aroma that was well fragrant with hops. The taste was rich with hops and crisp.

12oz. bottle into pilsner glass. Pours a cloudy gold color with a light white head that dissipates quickly. Strong aromas of hops, mint and hints of citrus fruit. Flavor is very bitter with hints of lemon and a slightly sweet citrus finish. Mouthfeel is very thin and little to no carbonation involved. Could have been better.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2007
Slightly hazy dark golden bronze with a thin ring of white head. Aroma of slightly earrthy, resiny grapefruit hops and pale malt. Body has decent fullness and light pale malty sweetness but the flavor and hoppiness dies toward a blander finish. Pretty drinkable, but needs a bigger hop presence.

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - OCT 20, 2007
light in color, strong head, nice initial flavor,fruit,plums, hops, evergreen. Too watery to be an IPA.Not as bad as some make out--but not great either.

cathcacr (634) - Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2007
The most watery, mediocre, money-wasting, bland, boring, flavorless, ball-less, gutless, spineless, tasteless bunch of monkey piss that I’ve seen passed off as an IPA, yet. By far. The worst shit given this designation out of nearly 50 that I’ve tried so far, and it’s not even close. No contest. This is barely a step above macro-swill. An insult to any intelligent beer lovers’ palate. If the brewers had any sense of decency, or just to avoid customer backlash and protect their bottom line, they’d recall the whole production run or learn how to label a beer properly. This sucks big donkey balls times ten. Know that.

hopdog (8848) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2007
12oz bottle. Bottle stamped gottled on 061907 (just bought last week). Poured a medium and slightly hazy golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Some suspended floaters. Aromas citrus, yeast, light caramel, and grainy. Tastes of citrus and caramel. Thin and watery body.

Lowe1983 (1346) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Pours a lighter amber color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, slight caramel malts, and some grains. Flavor is the same with a somewhat bitter finish that lingers. Not terrible but nothing too great. Much better IPA’s out there.

Decent hops. Golden color. Quite bubbly. The nose and flavor are different. Upon first smell it was hoppy with bit o’ grapefruit and flowers. The taste really sort of put me off. Hoppy in the beginning, which was nice, but it added some off putting yeast and cracker tastes. I’d like a bit more hop flavor throughout. I guess interesting and had a couple, so it wasn’t terrible. Just takes a while to get use to.

As expected this beer is loaded with hop but has a bit of malt for some balance. Flavor of grapefruit is plenty tart.
