3.75/5 rDev +15%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Serving Type Sampled: 12 fl. oz. brown crown top bottle. Bottle has embossed Red hook mountain and some sort of embossed wheat or barley. Also features bottled on date.
Appearance: This is a real beautiful pint. Gold in color, slight chill haze. Great 2½ finger, fluffy beige head. Diminished into a real tight lace that slides all the way down the glass.
Smell: Sweet malt, caramel, pine needles and grapefruit.
Taste: Definitely grapefruit, not only do I taste it but I get the same acidic bitterness. There is a slight sweetness but nothing over powering. I taste crystal malt which is rather pleasant. Finishes with more hops of the piney flavor.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium in body, medium carbonation.
Drinkability: good, at 6.5% ABV you probably cant have too many but this is a good example of style. Very clean and refreshing.

Long hammer is a great beginners IPA. Mellow piney citrus hop. A bit more bite than a session beer. Easy to drink for the masses. Well built beer in the northwest with good ingredients. Now only if the would mass produce Big Ballard Imperial. That is a wonderful imperial IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

This is my first IPA and I have to say, not a great impression has been made on me. I like the look and it had a hearty smell too it, like others said sort of a piney-ness to it. The taste however was very bitter, I don't feel that I'm experienced enough in the IPA category to properly judge, HOWEVER, the bitterness and aftertaste for me was not something I thoroughly enjoyed. I'll continue trying out various ipa's and rewrite a review if I feel I didn't do this one justice but I will say they put enough of a alcohol percentage in to it so that I didn't completely waste my money away!
