Bottle that Daniel felt like trying. Pours out an orange color with a thin white head. Smell is very light citrus and not much else. Taste is also kinda light and weak grass and citrus. The hops are there but certainly nothing insane. This beer is just OK.

Draft at Phillips Crab House in Ocean City, MD. Description on the bottle is "a beer built to stand the test of time" - Huh. Im not really catching that spirit with this beer. A sub-par IPA in my opinion. Nothing notable with this brew at all. PASS

Bottle that Daniel brought over. Thanks. Pours out an orange color with a white head on it. Smell is grassy and hoppy, with a little bit of a funk going on in it. Taste is sweet and some sticky hops are there, but its not really memorable, and certainly pails in comparison to the other IPAs that are on the shelf.

From a birthday bottle purchased at the University krogers in Cincinnati, Ohio - This brew pours a golden fluid with a tall, fine white head and a weak, hoppy aroma. Tastewise, its an uncomplicated, straightforward IPA with a sharp finish.

Appearance :Amber , golden ale .
Nose:Subdued hop aroma up front with sweeter nose in the middle.
Flavour/Palate: Sweet malty character with continental hop like profile. Minimalist approach to finish. Quiet gentle for labeled IPA with hop character of pilsner.

Sampled this one on draught at the brewery in Woodinville, WA. Pours to a deep golden color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a good carbonation. The nose is zesty, with good citrus hop aromas of lemon and grapefruit. The palate is firm, with good pale malt and biscuit flavor, which leads into a nice, lemony and grapefruit hop tang that lingers. A tasty, drinkable, straight foward AIPA, with good hop flavors. This beer is very drinkable, and very food friendly as well. The first time I have enjoyed this beer or any Redhook products in a while, and was surprised, how much I enjoyed Redhook, as I felt their beers had been dumbed down over the years. It miight not be my first choice, but I enjoyed Long Hammer IPA, and will gladly drink it again.

Average IPA. Golden color. Thin body. Light aroma. Some hop taste. Better than macro, but not a craft brew.

Nate (4263) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Fresh hoppy grassy aroma. Sweet malts, orange oil and some resin. Mild metallic tinge but otherwise very aromatic. Light golden amber clear with foamy lacing white head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Starts with heavy sweet malt character, fruity, with apricot and pear. Mild sugar and caramel malt. Fresh fruity hops with medium bitter finish. Dry nutty after.
