Short-nose bottle poured into a standard pint glass.
Fairly standard appearance, pale golden to amber color, small thin head that loses retention very quickly. Some visible carbonation. Nothing spectacular, but not bad.
Light citrus-y smell with some grassy notes present. Some floral hops are noticeable as well.
Taste is almost closer to a pale ale than what's expected from an American style IPA. Some citrus and hops in the front, but somewhat muted. Hop bitterness is present in the finish, which is actually quite nice.
This is a very light-feeling beer with nice carbonation. Goes down very smoothly and hides it's alcohol well. Relatively refreshing, given the style.
This is a decent, if unspectacular beer. I could definitely see getting this at a bar or restaurant if other options weren't available and not being disappointed.

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.

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!
