1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
I was long of the opinion that Pac NW ales were generally overhopped.. this was before I really got into IPAs, now I think I might have been wrong. I havent had RedHook Long Hammer IPA in forever and what I find is a very light, mild IPA that is much more of a light Pale Ale than an IPA. It is light in color, has a nice citrus and straw aroma but has very little distinct hop taste. It will fool you with its 6.5% alcohol content because you cant taste it! If you would like an IPA that you can drink a bunch of with no lingering traditional IPA bitterness then this is for you. If you want a tasty lip smacking IPA, why not try one of Stone’s IPAs.

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass. Subtle hop aroma, absolutely no head, no lacing. Didn’t care much for the taste. Many better options available, wouldn’t suggest.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
