12oz bottle poured to clean standard pint...
Pours a nice light copper that was very clear and clean. Head was a nice bright white and two fingered from a bit of an agressive pour. The head laced quite well due to the big pour but is was a bit ropey and retention wasn't stellar, although it did hang out for a while.
Nose is clean and upfront, nothing overpowering. Floral with some pine and slight grassy notes. This brew is quite well balanced but not a real homerun in any particular area. There is a nice malt back to the very straight forward hops up front, hops come back at the finish with a bit of pepper that counters the crisp and linger with an earthy bitterness.
Mouthfeel is quite good really. There is a nicely done feel to this beer, silky almost like there are quite a few late hops adds to it. Overall drinkability is also quite good for the style. A good session IPA for hop heads IMHO.

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!
