3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours an uninspired clear gold with some carbonation. Decent lacing. The aroma doesn’t bring much more to the table and is noticeably lacking. The flavour profile is pretty nicely hoppy, although it’s just missing a little fullness to make it a really good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Total Wine. I’m 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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Pickles in Baltimore, MD. Pours amber with a diminishing off white head. Fruity hop aroma. Flavor of toffee and faint caramel with a very tame and uninteresting bitterness mid palate. Finishes buttery. This is like the ESB but with more bittering and aroma hops. It does not really work and I find the ESB to be better.

On tap and from bottle. Weak IPA, has an alright hoppy aroma but thats about it, weak flavor, very watered down. This should be considered a boderline IPA. WEAK SAUCE!

Has a nice hoppy aroma. The hops are not too overpowering. This is a good light ipa for the money.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) A weak IPA. Hoppy, very cold tasting. Not terribly bitter. Thin. Absolutely no aftertaste, which is odd for any sort of beer. Strange, but I can see why people would like this one. It’s interesting how different this one is from Redhook’s "normal" IPA...it hardly resembles it at all, and I’ve got to give them credit for making two very distinct IPA’s.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow with a thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet citrus hops, orange, malt, pine. Thin feeling body. Flavor is sweet, malty, then some citrus hops, and grass. For an IPA this is way to malty.
