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.

Ungstrup (29230) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2007. An unclear golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, hops, and grapefruit, as well as light fruity esters. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of grapefruit, leading to a rather bitter and grassy finish.

(Bottle 35,5 cl) Clear, pale amber golden with a small, white head. Sweetish, malty nose. Medium body, sweetish malty with a dry bitterness without much refinement. I really miss some fruitiness and some quality aroma hops in here. 290307

Light haze on this gold beer, good white head. Palate is minerally crisp. Light lactose in the thin malt. Hops are also quite thin but bring some peel bitterness. Whispers of pine and grass. Mellow bitterness in the aftertaste. A very light IPA but actually quite good.

<i>Draught at the Yardhouse, Las Vegas</i>
Hazy blond color. There is some hop aroma. Medium-light body, with a dryish mouthfeel, some caramel flavor and some hop; at first the hop has some qualities (resins...), but they get lost on the way. Golden Ale style.
