kryon (3502) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
pours amber with medium to low head
aromas of sweet fruits, fudge...
taste is bitter in the beginning going over to more sweetness to end quite abrupt which makes the end taste quite watery. some bitternes left in the mouth afterwards. distinct maltyness
a good beer that could use some more complexity puboflyons (3400) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 4, 2017
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated March 28, 2017. I always seem to buy Redhook weeks after the bottling or caning date so my review is skewed. It pours golden with a big white head. Good clarity. The aroma is more malt forward than hop forward but it is likely due to its age. I get an herbal character and a hint of fruit but no booze for 8%. Medium, smooth body. There is a firm resin bitterness that creeps up on the backside. Capa (3251) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Orange with a white head. Medium bodied. Sweet somewhat tropical citrus with a bit of malt and sweet orange, too. Resin and light bitter finish. Solid DIPA and well balanced. Really enjoyed this one. hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2010
clear golden orange with and off white head.
it smells a little skunky. but, for the most part it is piney, pithy, orange, pale caramel and grassy.
the flavor is the same... orange, resinous, pithy and definitely not sweet.
crispy resinous texture is easy to put away. 7/3/7/3/15/3.5

Bomber from BevMo. Aroma is really sweet with some fruity hop bitterness. Pretty bitter tasing up front. This brew has a strong tropical fruit taste as well. Alcohol is weel hidden. Easy sipper. Not a real hoppy impy.

22-Jul-10 (22-oz bottle: Purchased for $4.29 at BevMo in San Diego/Mission Valley, CA) Big Ballard pours hazy orange-gold with a thick, off-white head, settling from one inch to a persistent quarter-inch layer. Orange citrus, stone fruits, grass and dust in the nose. Malts are sweet on the palate with grainy and caramely flavors while the hops offers flavors of tangerine, pine, grass, and a lingering, medium-intensity bitterness. Dusty on the palate, with medium-full body, moderate carbonation, a dry finish, and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Intricate lacing covers much of the glass and does not dissipate. Because this is a Redhook product, and it isn’t a big, massive, in-your-face Double IPA, many people will probably scoff at this beer. Let them! This is beautifully balanced, exceptionally drinkable, and quite delicious too. dchmela (3062) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Thanks to Ditmier for the bottle. Light hazy amber pour. Huge honey, citrus hop aroma. Taste is malt with sticky spicy bitter hops. Pretty good hop bomb. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2010
Really nice, clean, drinkable IIPA. Nothing over the top but a thumbs-up to Red Hook for this one. 24 karat tangerine pour with a fluffy white head that left and intricate web of lacing inside the glass. Aroma is bright grapefruit, orange pith, lemon peel, and subtle caramel. Flavor is all citrus with hints of pine/resin, and honey. ABV is well masked...ample carbonation.

22oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden orange with a big frothy white head that left some great lacing. Light metallics in the nose, along with some bitter citrus hops. Good hop bitterness on the finish. Light alcohol sting remains on the tongue. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Phoenix) - Pours a clear golden color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is light toasted malt, and pine and herbal hops. Flavor is lightly sweetened toasted malt with a nice dose of pine, herbal, and light citrus hops. Finish is somewhat bitter and not too astringent. Medium body. A good beer for Red Hook. I like it better than Long Hammer.
