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.

Pours a deep copper with a decent head. Aroma is resiny with pine notes. Nicely balanced flavors. Overall, quite quaffable.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2007
Copper colored with a tangy pine aroma. Small, quarter-inch head, dissipates rapidly. A little lace on the glass. Looks and smells good enough. Flavor profile is mostly mild hops with a small amount of malts in the end. Goes down easy enough. A decent IPA. I like the 6.5% alcohol.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 18, 2007
In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours dark gold with a medium off white head. Mild pine aroma. Slight bisquit dough flavor at first that mellows to a mild buttery bitterness. Very quick finish for an IPA. Super smooth and drinkable.

Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2007
12 oz bottle 060607. My bottle says brewery in Portsmouth, NH not woodinville, Washington. Nice amber pour, hazy, big foamy head heavy lacing. Aroma is tops, very inviting citrus bouquet. Strong hops presence but not overboard. Light to medium bodied, very bitter hops burst then citrusy orange zest flavor. Very dry. Great aroma had me excited but pretty much an average IPA at best.

JK (4586) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Not a bad ipa, and probably Redhook’s best product. Light hops in the aroma and light in the flavor. Enough to be recognizable as an ipa, but far too light overall. Some malt sweetness.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Pours golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, mild Cascade hops, and a light pineyness. Taste is light graininess, earthy and lightly citric hops. Mouthfeel is lightly resinous with lively carbonation. Drinkable, but a pretty underwhelming IPA.

bconger (138) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Bottle. Straw-colored and slightly cloudy. Medium-thin, nearly white head. Pleasent hoppy, wheaty aroma. Nicely carbonated, but lacks any real personality. Notes of hops and citrus are unbalanced due to overwhelming wateriness for style. Palate leaves much to be desired, as acrid, front-of-mouth high notes dominate. This beer needs a smooth basement flavor to level it out. Unpleasant, posterior tongue bitterness lingers for a long while. With that criticism, it is still a drinkable summer beer, but certainly not one that demonstrates what an IPA should be.

CelticBrew (845) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Sorry hopheads (like myself), this beer is a disappointment. Aroma does have hop smells, but very little after that. Flavor was of a bland IPA. Hops, lemons and grass notes. Just doesn’t come across well, not the best example of a quality IPA.

Blah...terrible IPA. No aroma (some hops but not very strong). Pour was a flat gold with no head. In fact this beer barely had any carbonation. Taste was lemon mostly then the hops come in after you swallow and are very weak. What’s with the lemons? I would like to take a long hammer to this bottle.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 12 oz. bottle from Zinister. Pour is golden and mostly clear. Nice 2 inch white head. Aroma is nice citrus and floral hop, though somewhat muted. Taste is lemons and limes, and a bit of orange peel tartness. The body is a bit watery, and tends to dilute the flavor to this one. Quite drinkable, just not exceptional.
