Bottle. Cloudy golden with small short lasting head. Hops and grains in tha aroma. The taste is medium bitter and is dominated by grains with some hops in the background, There is something about it I dont quite like so much, something metalic/acid in the taste. I dont know if its old, the bottle is marked Aug 10 15 - 8 months ago....

Frax (60) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 9, 2016
Bottle from Shaw’s, packaged 12/11/15. Poured into a pint glass clear gold, lightly carbonated. Thin white head, moderate lacing. Nutty aroma, lightly hopped, could be sessionable but ABV is higher than it seems. According to the ratings this should be terrible, but seems pretty decent to me.

IlGagario (115) - Modena, ITALY - MAR 23, 2016
In bottiglia. Colore giallo oro velato. Schiuma alta, soapy, di buonissima persistenza. Olfatto maltato e resinoso. Carbonazione media, frizzante. Aroma di resina, tè agrumato e malto di impostazione english bitter. Gusto terroso, mediamente dolce, poi amaro, a seccarsi. Luppolatura morbida, tipicamente cascade. Corpo da leggero a medio, trama da watery a oleosa. Dissetante e di buona scorrevolezza, è molto facile alla beva. Più bitter che IPA, è una bella birra rotonda, frangi-sete, che senza avere inutili pretese, è semplice e gradevole.

Nice refreshing light tasting IPA. Very well balanced, non intrusive hop profile. A tiny bit grainy flavor, but all around solid beer.

Originally rated on 8/22/08. On my third as i type, I was pleasantly surprised by longhammer, partially because my expectations were not too high to begin with. It pours a dark golden yellow hue. Decent white cap disappated to a thin head, yet it leaves good lacing. Aroma of some citrus, but mostly floral, taste was similar with a lasting bitterness, and a very slight aftertaste of berries. Overall it is a pretty good IPA, especially for those new to the style, but for those seeking that super hop blast this will be an average brew.

bottle @ Fresh Thyme / Newport KY --- Clear medium/light amber color, long-lasting off-white head, lace cobwebs. Taste is malt that allows solid hops to ride on its back through a medium finish. Pretty straightforward, but it works well enough.
