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.

sinte (366) - Udine, ITALY - NOV 18, 2014
Bottle 0.335L. Slightly hazy deep golden body with small, fizzy, white head, fully diminishing with virtually no lacing. Heavy hoppy (flowers, citrus) and light malty (grains, some caramel) aroma. Moderate-to-heavy bitter flavour with light-to-moderate sweet character. Light-to-medium body with watery texture; flat carbonation.

Desverger (2386) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014
Can@The Social, Copenhagen (25DKK weekly special) - golden pour with a good white head. Aroma and taste is sweet fruity and malty, some biscuity caramel malts, citrus fruits, some pine and grassy notes, good thirst quencher and easy drinking for the abv. Nice.

Nice strong IPA. Does the trick effectively for the 195 calories. A fantastic bitter finish makes for a very enjoyable drink. No abundance of carbonation like some which means I can drink it faster. Love this bitter!

Zekada (269) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Smell has a lot of citrus grass and fresh hops. Taste has some maltiness and some nice fresh hops, though it dosen’t taste very much. Palate is fresh and easy, quiet nice. Overall an oaky beer. Drinkable and easy, though it isn’t very tasteful.

bnwokedi89 (57) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2014
Aroma is pretty strong on the hop side. Very clear and crisp clarity with a smooth finish. Taste is slightly bitter but less. Than traditional IPAs.

Sissio (725) - Orsenigo, ITALY - OCT 29, 2014
Deep gold, clear, minimal white head. Caramel maltiness, quite heavy, with aromatic hops (citruses, red orange, candy orange peel). Nice tastes, caramel malts, hoppy aromas and herbaceous bitterness, but not balanced.

mikedevilsfan (188) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2014
piss yellow color, very little head. Aroma is one like a macro. Taste is not much better, very grainy hops are pretty minimal. Says 44, but doesn’t taste like it. This isn’t the deal you’ve been looking for, move along...

Sessionable for sure. Quite sublte for an IPA, only 44 IBU, all the bitterness comes in the finish.
