Poured a fairly light color for an IPA, just kind of a regular golden-yellow pilsnery color, with a pretty nice thick white head.
Had a pleasant lemon zest aroma.
The taste wasn't particularly potent or quite as hoppy as I'd hoped for, but it was still a good beer. It wasn't your typical pack-a-punch IPA, it was a bit of a milder IPA, but still had a bit of hop presence, and that nice tangy zesty piney lemony thing going on. Tastes like a good, refreshing summer beer that goes down real easy, and it was a buck or two less than most six-packs, so why not? Well, I mean, other than the fact that you'd be supporting Anheuser-Busch...

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!
