Itís alright I guess. Clear golden, slightly hazy. Pretty typical mild IPA w/ an emphasis on grassy aromas and earthy bitterness. Slight metallic tastes in the finish.

So I was at the fair and my wife said I could have a beer even though it was only 11:00 AM. Happy to oblige I wandered over to the beer stand. Three choices were presented: Bud, Bud Light and Long Hammer IPA. Went with the unknown and was pleasantly surprised. Despite their relationship with A-B, Redhook does turn out some decnt beer, Nice fresh piney nose and a good, bitter taste. 6.5%? Well hidden.

clear dark gold, fine dirty white head, sweet floral and citrus aroma, lots of floral hop flavor, light bitterness balances a touch of malty sweetness and leaves a nice bitter finish,

nearbeer (3966) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Bottled 06 19 07. Orange gold with a small cap that tries to lasts. Aroma of pine resin and slight grapefruit fades in proportion to the head diminishing. Flavor is citrus, pine, and spicy honey malt. Also some iodophore seems to be in there, and I switched glasses several times to make sure it was not from my chugging pint glass. Seems like some European style hops and/or yeast put a bit of a muddling damper on what could be a pretty flavorful IPA. Palate is almost medium and fairly smooth, with a drying finish. Nothing really outstanding, but not bad.

Coleís IPA Fest. Light hops aroma,hints of malt, amber, small white head. Flavour is a nice melding of orange and malt. Light bodied, balanced, good mouthfeel. Decent.

Headbanger (3472) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2007
12oz bottle-A yellow body with a big white head and an aroma of hops and citrus. Taste of mild hops and citrus. Not bad but was expecting more from this brewery. Maybe AB has their hooks in them.

On tap at Old Chicago. Nothing very special to note about the appearance or aroma. The aroma did hint at what was to come, and it wasnít good. The taste was a lot maltier than an IPA should be, and the flavour is not very good. The hops had a very overdone citric taste, like grapefruit, but the balance was way off. And that was on top of the rather cheap and overdone malt flavour. Finish was quite astringent. Strangley, it was easy enough to drink despite the flavour and this was possibly its only saving grace. Iíll pass on trying this again.

Pours straw golden with a nice thick white head. Piny, lemon grass aroma, with a just a bit of a malty undertone. Flavor follows the aroma nicely although a bit watery. Palate is light/medium, with a nice smooth mouth-feel. Good, but not great, what I would refer to as an entry level IPA, which definitely has itís own place.
