Bottle poured in a 16oz Goose Island glass.
A: golden amber with a solid white head when poured aggressively, but the head has dissipated and is now very thin and not solid. I can see through it. The lacing dissipates when tilting the glass.
S: piney, citrusy, earthy with a slight hop presence and a nice sweet blend as a result from the malt
T: earthy, lemon, citrusy, hoppy. It's not as sweet as it smells, but it still fairly well balanced. It seems pretty light for an IPA.
M: Thin bodied with moderate carbonation. It goes down very easily.
O: This is a very smooth beer. It goes down fairly smooth. I would't consider this an IPA. More of a Pale Ale, a very good one at that. Only reason I don't consider it an IPA is because I like it more bitter… with aggressive hops.

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!
