2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 5/20
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, itís almost like a lager itís weird. Some bitterness but nothing crazy, not really anything stands out. Itís alright nothing I would seek out. Itís cheap so I guess thatís a plus. Okay beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Just okay IPA. Hazy dark orange. Fresh musky hop nose. Taste adds a little citrus with medium bitterness. Drinkable, but not anything special.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Medium-high hops; pine, resin, light spice, cirtus, fruity. Medium malt, caramel, no diecetyl, no DMS
Appearance: Hazy pale gold body. Medium white head. Good retention.
Flavour: Medium bitterness, medium sweetness. Well balanced, leaning slightly towards bitterness. Light lingering bitterness. Dry finish. Medium-high hop flavours, piney, resin, citrus. Light malt, bready. No diecetyl, no DMS
Mouthfeel: Medium bodies, medium high carbonation. Dry finish
Overall: Very enjoyable and a very easy drinking beer. The one I got was four months old, so I assume a lot of the dry hopping has dropped out. Definately a beer I can have a few of!
335 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Esme!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy deep gold. No head. Musky malty aroma and some pine as it warms up. Lemony citrus and moderate hop bitterness. Quite thin palate. Low carbonation. Maybe I made a mistake drinking after a Firestone Walker Double Jack

Long Hammer is an IPA that is OK. Its not poor but not excellent. A medium and dependably so IPA to me at least. A Toyota to a Lexus, if you will.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass every time Iíve had it.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color along the sides and taking on a darker ruddy brown color in the center. The head was about a fingerís worth of white foaminess that dissipated within about forty seconds leaving a film of a lacing.
The smell had some light sweet pine but only after a bit of warming.
The taste was mainly bitter, it really took some warming to let the flavors show their face.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was harsh just like a good AIPA should be.
Overall, everything is on par to make it a go to AIPA however, every time Iíve had it I always think that the aroma just doesnít seem to show enough.
