a murky orange-yellow pour with 1/2" of head which disappeared immediately. smells of citrus grapefruit, wet grass, very earthy. the taste is a toasted like bitterness up front followed by a tree sap/piney bitterness, slight hint of sweetness coming from the malt and a citrus finish. the body leaves much to be desired - a very watery medium body with low carbonation.
as far as smell and taste this beer is great, however - everything else is very sub-par at best, which makes this ipa a poor contender considering the thousand others i could be drinking. my first red hook beer and i have to say, aside from the nice bottle design, i'm not impressed at all.

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!
