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.

TheSponge (342) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Pours a beautiful amber color with minimal head. Very hoppy, which is something that I always appreciate. Iím a big fan of IPAís, and this one definitely "steps up to the plate". 12 oz. bottle.

gold color with a quickly disappearing white head. Smell is of hops and taste is appropriately bitter. Not much of a fruit presence. Overall not bad

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Pours copper with a sudsy beige head. The aroma has green grassy / piny hops with lightly toasted malt and is very clean. Medium crisp body with spritzy carbonation. The flavor starts off well enough with the hoppiness from the aroma, but the finish is mushy with an off-bitterness. A decent IPA, but nothing that will blow you away.

Not bad overall but kind of weak for an IPA. Average taste, slightly bitter. Thin texture and poor looking to boot.

HighlanderOne (985) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Poured from bottle 1/2008. Potent hop aroma. Medium amber, thin head. Nice hop flavors. Not as wildly hopped as other American IPA s. Nice hop feel in the back of the mouth. Finished nicely. A decent IPA.

Wow. I used to think Red Hook was a pretty decent microbrew back in the day. So I figured their IPA might be all right, but then I took a look at the reviews here and shied away from it until I was at a friendís place, and it appears he dived into a twelve-pack from the local "Star Mart." Pours YELLOW, which is odd for an IPA. I expected orangeish brew. Not much of an aroma. You can sort of smell the grapefruit. Is that Summit hops? Anyway, a bit of a bite, but Three Floydís Pride & Joy probably compares, and itís a mild ale. Sorta too bad.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2008
On tap at the Wachovia Center. Deep golden color with thin head. Hoppy aroma. Taste was mostly bitter hops with some malts to balance it out a bit. Dry finish. Not a bad IPA on draft.

Yellow pour and a bitter taste. Not really a fan. It was link drinking pine needles if that makes any sense.
