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.

Average IPA. Golden color. Thin body. Light aroma. Some hop taste. Better than macro, but not a craft brew.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Fresh hoppy grassy aroma. Sweet malts, orange oil and some resin. Mild metallic tinge but otherwise very aromatic. Light golden amber clear with foamy lacing white head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts with heavy sweet malt character, fruity, with apricot and pear. Mild sugar and caramel malt. Fresh fruity hops with medium bitter finish. Dry nutty after.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2007
This brew is a clear copper/amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissapears pretty quickly. Stringy lacing. The aroma is muted hops, pine and malt. Medium-bodied and rather smooth with floral hops and earthy malt flavors. On the whole the flavor profile is kind of vacuous. The finish is mildly bitter and short. Nothing offensive, but nothing going on that makes it stand out among the other grocery store IPAs.

Bottle. A mild bodied IPA, with an off white head and a nice hop aroma. Not too bad.

dchmela (2641) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Nice copper color with big white head. Spicy hoppy, slight citrus nose. Taste has the spicy, hoppy characteristics, but is very smooth drinking. Not bad for something I picked up at the supermarket.

biznizness (1089) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Really tastes more like a Pale Ale, lacks that hoppy punch that an IPA needs. Drinkable but not what I was looking for here.

12oz bottle. golden color. aroma of light malt. hint of piney hop. Decent hop presence. Nothing spectacular. Long lasting bitterness on the palate. Light bodied.

Frauditor (160) - Hagerstown, Maryland, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Had on tap at morgan’s american grill in new market. A clean cut IPA with no bells or whistles. needs a bit more hoppy to raise the rating here. Taste of citrus and honey flavors come through.
