3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quality offering from Redhook, relaxed mild IPA with enough hop presence to satisfy. Pleasant hop aroma, strong but not overdone. Light copper color with an inch thick head and layers of sticky lacing. Medium bitterness on the palate, overall mouthfeel is a touch too light for my liking. The flavor isnít anything off the charts, but like most standard IPAís it is well balanced and the hops are allowed to compliment a solid malt content instead of fighting with one another. I wouldnít be able to distinguish this one from many of the countless others, but itís still enjoyable.

$6.99 for a six pack at the navy base. Floral hop aroma. Mild hop and sweet pale malt flavor. Mild but typical IPA aromas and flavors. Not much difference between this one and the Redhook IPA. This one is 6.5% abv and the regular IPA is 6.0% This would be excellent if it were $5 a six pack. At that price I would drink a lot of it as I did the regular IPA until the price went up. I see that Redhook has gone up on all their prices. Itís a decent average IPA, but not worth craft brew prices. 217 ratings before me and nobody has sent in a photo! Iíll take care of that chore.

Bottle that Daniel felt like trying. Pours out an orange color with a thin white head. Smell is very light citrus and not much else. Taste is also kinda light and weak grass and citrus. The hops are there but certainly nothing insane. This beer is just OK.

Draft at Phillips Crab House in Ocean City, MD. Description on the bottle is "a beer built to stand the test of time" - Huh. Iím not really catching that spirit with this beer. A sub-par IPA in my opinion. Nothing notable with this brew at all. PASS

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle that Daniel brought over. Thanks. Pours out an orange color with a white head on it. Smell is grassy and hoppy, with a little bit of a funk going on in it. Taste is sweet and some sticky hops are there, but its not really memorable, and certainly pails in comparison to the other IPAs that are on the shelf.

From a birthday bottle purchased at the
University krogerís in Cincinnati, Ohio - This brew pours a golden fluid with a tall, fine white head and a weak, hoppy aroma. Tastewise, itís an uncomplicated, straightforward IPA with a sharp finish.

Appearance :Amber , golden ale .
Nose:Subdued hop aroma up front with sweeter nose in the middle.
Flavour/Palate: Sweet malty character with continental hop like profile. Minimalist approach to finish. Quiet gentle for labeled IPA with hop character of pilsner.

Sampled this one on draught at the brewery in Woodinville, WA. Pours to a deep golden color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a good carbonation. The nose is zesty, with good citrus hop aromas of lemon and grapefruit. The palate is firm, with good pale malt and biscuit flavor, which leads into a nice, lemony and grapefruit hop tang that lingers. A tasty, drinkable, straight foward AIPA, with good hop flavors. This beer is very drinkable, and very food friendly as well. The first time I have enjoyed this beer or any Redhook products in a while, and was surprised, how much I enjoyed Redhook, as I felt their beers had been dumbed down over the years. It miight not be my first choice, but I enjoyed Long Hammer IPA, and will gladly drink it again.
