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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brew with a light golden colour. fairly muted aroma with some corn mash or cereal like quality. Medium bodied brew, fast finish, lacks hoppy character. English styled brew and disappointing.
