Dry hopped 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.

ARH (749) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2015
12oz bottle, not poured. The aroma is doughy with citrus zest, peaches, and a light pine. Couldn’t see the beer well through the bottle, but could see that it appeared a decent amount of head was retained and laced along the bottle - based on other ratings, giving it a 3 so as not to handicap it. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter with perhaps slightly more sweetness than bitter. It’s oily and smooth with a soft fizz carbonation. The medium/medium-light body is juicy with lots of fruit as well as grains. A spicy finish is followed up by a dry and clean pine note.

Keg at the Lazy Fox, Fulham. Amber, clear, lovely. Pine, peaches, resin in the heady scent. Bittersweet, finely balanced with a slightly more bitter kick in the aftertaste. Certainly worth drinking.

Finalmente una IPA americana nei supermercati Italiani. Una bottiglia elegante per una birra molto buona. Il prezzo risulta elevato per una bottiglia da 35 cl. Ma per i palati più esigenti è un prezzo che si può sopportare una volta ogni tanto. Spero di vedere altre birre Americane di importazione al più presto.

On tap poured a clear gold hue w/ medium white head and sticky lacing. Mild to moderate sweet stone and citrus fruit aromas. Initial flavor is light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are biscuit, lime, peach, and straw. Medium bodied. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

CanCrusher (721) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle 0,355L. Courtesy of Gregor. Cloudy golden colour with tiny, frothy, white head, that dissipate fast. When I open the bottle, aroma hits me hard, but it’s fade away after the beer was in the glass for a minute. Well, some citrusy aroma is still there, but it isn’t it. Taste is moderate bitter and hoppy. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste is OK, but they should do some more dry hopping for better aroma.

Very smooth IPA, good flavor. Nice aroma and even a cool bottle. Not big on IPA’s but I am a fan of this.

Bottle, aroma of citrus, grass and hops. Taste is bitter and sour and slightly paperish. Palate is smooth and drinkable - not too hoppy to enjoy afew. Overall it is good.

Middle of the road IPA. Better than macro brew by a narrow margin. Bottle looks nice, but sadly more thought was put into the marketing than the recipe.

Aroma- has a nice citrus aroma with a hint of grains Appearance- a golden yellow with a small white head that lingers Taste- a nice crisp semi-tart flavor, not overpowering but well balanced Palate- a dry beer that has medium carbonation and is also medium bodied Overall- a really good beer from Red Hook, I would drink this again
