I do feel like this beer is a bit more of a pale ale then it is an IPA... but that being said, it's pretty much average across the board. Look and smell are nothing of note, the taste is average, although a little more sweet then you would experience from the normal IPA. The taste is a bit fruity, which is kind of odd. This really is a pale ale with more hops. All that being said, I could see this maybe being a good beer for the more commercial beer drinker to get into, and expand their palate and taste from there. I do think something like a Fat Tire may be better in that sense though.

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!
