I poured this out to reveal a golden and rather boring color, think macro lager. The aromas were not there, and neither was the head. Just a hint of pine could be detected. The flavor was, "This is the most boring IPA I have ever had." That was all I could think about while I drank this. Sure it was bitter, but even that wasn't interesting. It even tasted rather watered down. The hops were very unrefined. I would not consider this an IPA. Redhook has been an incredible disappointment. Given its bland and unremarkable nature, it is easy to chug, which is laughable for an IPA.

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!
