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.

Pours light golden with a fluffy white head that lasts quite a while. Smells of soggy cereal. Getting the hops up front, slight citrus, no pine. Strong malt back. Tastes more like a pale ale than an IPA.

Moderate persistent foam. Estimates aroma of mixed citrus fruit. Luscious caramel malt meetings first taste buds, then a delicate hoppy flavor of grapefruit and lemon with light sweetness of peach / mango. A little bit of pine needles felt in the aftertaste which is also dry. The light carbonation gives a soft and mellow IPA which is quite delicious.

Bottiglia 33cl comprata alla sogegross e bevuta a casa. Chiara con schiuma così così. Senza infamia e senza lode si fa fin bere. Resina ma poco elegante ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold

Wasn’t a real big fan of this one. Really off putting flavor. Very pleased it was free and I didn’t have to waste my money on this.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pale, almost clear, light appearance; almost no foam. Slightly malty, flat hops, bland, not much bitterness. All in all, somewhat boring. Probably an enjoyable, refreshing drink on a hot day, but not something to be enjoyed on its own.
