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.

(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.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2007
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.

fonefan (42843) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2007
Cask gravity @ GBBF 2007, London. Hazy yellow orange color with a small, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, moderate hoppy, pine, grapefruit. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Aroma is solid cascade hops with background sweet malt balance. Appearance is lightly hazy gold with a good white head. Flavor is earthy, slightly grassy hops forward with low malt balance and very low sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium/low bodied with low carb feel and no warmth or creaminess. Overall, pretty easy drinking and a classic style example.
Earlier Rating: 9/4/2007 Total Score: 3.7
9/3/07 Special blueline release on draught at the Woodinville brewery; this example is additionally dry hopped and unfiltered. Aroma is Pacific Northwest earthy/grassy hops forward (seems to be primarily Cascade, but could not confirm), with a very low background malt character. It wasn’t really out of balance, but the hop character is very floral, more so than in a Longhammer. Appearance is a very hazy gold with a very low white head. Flavor is nearly identical to Longhammer, but definitely has a smoother blend of hops, with more moderate bittering and much more flora and citrus notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a medium carb bite and a fairly dry finish. Overall, very good, and even though the scores I rated were nearly identical, I think this is definitely superior to the Longhammer. If you’re more into the overall hop complexity in an IPA than just the IBU count (like I am), this is worth a stop by the brewery or any alehouse that can get their hands on it.

It’s 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.
