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.

Thereís some promise to the nose of this deep golden ale. It smells of of toffee covered by pine and floral hops. Unfortunately, itís somewhat watery and dull in the flavor department. Sweet malt, pine, pepper. Sounds good, but itís balanced more like a watery APA. Disappointing.

Rye bread(the kind with the caraway seeds) and pine. Apricot. Itís also a little weak. It hits all the proportions and balance right, itís just a litlle weak. For an IPA, itís somewhat unspectacular.

crazyvin (1899) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Another slight disappointment from Redhook. It poured a hazy orange-amber hue with no head. Aroma is slightly pine-like with a strange malt base. Flavor was pretty much the same with a watery finish.

PhillyBeer2112 (2514) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Hoppy nose is restrained yet somewhat complex and unusual. Starts melony with cantaloupe and casaba, perhaps a touch of peaches and solvent. A green apple? Maybe a rye bread type malt is present, but I wouldnít expect it from the golden color, with a thin layer of clean white foam. Flavor starts hoppy (vaguely resiny, somewhat floral like noble hops), but feels empty, again a lack of malt. Finish is mildly bitter, and pretty vacant.

skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 17, 2007
22oz draft poured into a mug from a shitty bar in Andover. I drank this one while talking to the guy across the bar about the deer that he hit with his motorcycle on RT-93 south! This atrocity tasted like a Budweiser with too much metallic hop-like stink juice. The aftertaste was nauseating and I could only drink half of the mug. I can not believe that this brewery markets this as their IPA. For some reason I thought that they were better than the jerks who want to tap into the "trendy micro market" and make a quick dollar. Nasty

Clean, crisp and refreshing. Has a good hop bite but still smooth and easy to drink. A great hot weather session IPA.

emacgee (3957) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2007
A pretty substandard IPA. The pour was thin and the aroma and flavor consisting solely of very metallic hops. Had a much more waxy bitter character than I enjoy.

TChrome (1409) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Beer pours medium golden color with a totally retained off white colored head. Aroma is lightly, floral and spicy hoppy. Flavor is sweet, then followed by citrus hoppiness, and a bit of graininess. Apparently most people hate this, but I find it a solid if unspactacular IPA.

Bottle at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, really enjoyed this IPA, amber in color, big fluffy off-white head, if itís possible to have nice lacing in a plastic cup this achieved it, big hoppy nose with notes of pine, lemon & grass, full bodied, lots of hoppy bitterness in the flavors along with notes of grapefruit & a little lemon, dry & bitter finish, an easy-drinking & enjoyable IPA
