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.

Tap at Front Row Friday’s in Orlando. The beer pours to a clean caramel orange colored body with a thin white head. The aroma is fruity with oranges and grapefruit with notes of pineapple and papaya. The flavor is piney, oranges, and toasted pale malts. Decently bitter and drying. Moderate palate.

Good but not great IPA. I'd have it again, but there are many others I'd grab for first (e.g., Dogfish 60 Minute). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dorata con una bella schiuma anche se evanescente. Al naso aromi citrici e fruttati, in bocca è pulita e va giù che è una meraviglia. Amaro non troppo acuto. Veramente buona.

A decent and drinkable IPA. Pours a bronze yellow color with good lacing. Smells fresh and pleasant of hoppy citrus and resin. Taste is the same, strong piney citrusy hops with toasted malt balance, standard for the style. Nice grapefruity finish is the highlight. Overall a stereotypical West coast IPA, a little on the milder intensity side. Gains points for being easy drinking, but loses points for being generic and indistinctive. I do still recommend this brew and Red Hook brewing overall.

A hazy orange yellow beer with minimal white head. The aroma is toasty grain and light citrus. The flavor is bready, citrus, and piney.

Classica ipa leggermente fruttata agrumata al naso. Con note erbacee e un gusto amaro molto amabile. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

rotaman14 (18) - Falkensee, Brandenburg, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2014
Pours light orange/yellow, with a huge white head. Noticeable hoppiness in the aroma. Lovely, hoppy, bitter taste, with some citrus hints. Underrated.

Bottled 02 Jun 2014. Thanks, Shri. A clear light orange with a dense white head that falls off leaving no lacing, this looks OK. The nose is dominated by cascade hops,grapefruity, chalky, pithy and with some candied citrus. Bitterness is noticeable. A little bit of crystal malt and cotton candy are present. The palate opens with a surprising bitterness, pungent, clean, resiny with grapefruit, pine, orange peel and a little floral character. The mid palate has a mild honey sweetness, a little cotton candy and a little dough. Drying and bitter on the finish, this beer is medium light in body and crisply carbonated. Quite decent.

Bendrixian (1106) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
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.

Clear light golden with a fair white head. Grassy. A little skunky. Earth. Grapefruit. Moderate malty. Moderate bitterness. Semi dry. Peppery. Not bad, but this didn’t hit the spot for me.
