A. Very thin clear looking for an IPA. A touch darker than a macro lager. There wasn't much head and it went away quickly.
S. Not a lot going on here either. It has a bit of a citrus/hop smell. I couldn't smell any malt.
T. This is a weird ipa to say the least. The only flavor was from the hops, but it wasn't over powering, complex, or really anything special. To be honest this reminds me more of a pale ale.
M. Thin. Very very thin. The beer as it warms seems to become more and more watered down.
D. It is thin, unoffensive, and the 6.5% abv is virtually impossible to notice. If you're looking for an easy to chug summer IPA this might work there.
Overall this is a below average IPA. Considering nearly anywhere I can get this I could get goose island's IPA I can't imagine ever trying it again or recommending it to anyone. It would be a nice option if it were on tap somewhere with nothing else.

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!
