Notes/Commercial Description:
The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Served in a pilsner glass with dinner (chicken & sun dried tomato).

Appearance - Clear orange in color with a thick cream colored head. Some nice lacing too.

Smell - Bright citrus hops. Definite aroma of tangerine.

Taste - Pretty strong hoppy flavor, although for the style I'd say pretty average. There's a distinct citrus flavor, but a bit lighter than what the smell might lead you to believe. Mild sweetness throughout with a nice bitter finish. I found it to be pretty well balanced.

Mouthfeel - Pretty smooth...medium carbonation.

Drinkability - Very easy to drink for an IPA.

Generally, when I'm in the mood for an IPA it's because I want something that packs a powerful hoppy punch. This is not that beer. Now that's not to say this isn't a great beer...in fact, I thought it was quite good! It's just not what I'm looking for in an IPA. I'll definitely drink Long Hammer in the future, but it will more than likely show up as a standard daily drink-with-dinner brew as opposed to a hops fix.

LongHammer is a disappointing IPA. The taste is simple and bland, with misplaced bitterness and a poor finish. It is drinkable if it is the only craft available (and it often is, due to their distribution network), but this is one that needs to be completely re-done.
