3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pale golden, somewhat dirty, slight haze, minor bits floating about, large rocky white head, fairly nice lacing.   Decent looking at least.   Dirty earthen hop nose, astringent citrus peel, slight pine.   Definite citrus peel on the tongue, a little bright and rough around the edges.   Mild bitterness, citrus peel based.   Quick finish, very slight metallic aftertaste.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, at best.   Lingering grainy malt character after the astringent citrus bitterness dies down.   Pretty much what I expected from Redhook, a subpar example of the style.   Not disgusting mind you, just not interesting enough to ever have again.

On tap @ Bamboo Lounge: Meh. This is an easy drinking beer and all, but you would expect a beer called "long hammer" to have a little balls - this doesnít. In fact, itís incredibly light - both in color and flavor. Maybe itís a credit to Redhook, but im very surprise this beer is 6.5%. It tasted like an IPA light.

UPDATED: JUN 15, 2007 12 oz bottle via Rothís. Pours a semi clear amber with an average sized white head. Nose is lemon and tangerine. Taste starts out very nice and then drops into almost nothing..starts with lemon, then caramel, then orange, and then ends with a finish that is......almost nothing but a pale refelction of the start. i think they need more finishing hops perhaps? Not sure. Light body, watery mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium....

UPDATED: MAY 8, 2012 [12oz Can]
A deep golden yellow color with a nice head. The aroma was rich and flavorful. Nice crisp Cascade hops flavor and finish. Easy Munich malt flavors this was a very nice brew. Glad I got to retry this and re-rate.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
An okay hop aroma, but awfully pale in color and constitution. Taste has a little nice hop bite at the beginning, but then it gets rather thin and watery. Has a bad metallic finish, but some staying grittiness. I donít think this is as bad as everyone else seems to think but there are certainly many better IPAs out there.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Copper/amber color with a whitish head. Orange/lemony aroma with some malt. Lemony flavor with some lighter bitterness and a bit of malt backing. Gets a bit too citric. Lighter IPA that gets a bit tiring.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours light yellow with an out of control amount of carbonation. Filtered. Tastes like a good IPA... WITH 11 Oz. OF WATER ADDED! One of the most watery and tasteless IPAs Iíve had. Smell was faint, taste was faint, its like a ghost beer! Stay away from this spooky ale.
