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.

Pour deep golden, aroma is fruity with cascade being more noticeable, medium lasting head. Taste is mainly bitter but lack some dry-hopping maybe, it could be that that’s an import because hop taste is not too present. Mouthfeel could be better. Overall decent but could use some improvement.

Not a bad beer, but not a great one either. The flavor was not bad, but let more to be desired.

Pretty okay IPA. Nothing stellar but nothing terrible. The aroma has some orange and pine qualities but I noticed a weird adjuncty smell as well which was kind of lame. Taste is alright, it’s almost like a lager it’s weird. Some bitterness but nothing crazy, not really anything stands out. It’s alright nothing I would seek out. It’s cheap so I guess that’s a plus. Okay beer.

MarkoNm (500) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy orange color, topped with very decent white head. There is a pleasantly fruity and citrusy aroma, easily picked up, but not too strong. The taste is nicely bitter, creamy feel with some citrus notes. A very nice one, really.

Bottle. Nice,white head. Pale golden colour. Smells of hops and citrus. Fresh and nice smell. A bit too astringent flavour for my taste. Hay, floral, grass, citrus. Bitter aftertaste.
