12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date September 17, 2013 printed on the label. It seems as though I've come full circle here, as I am re-reviewing this beer, my first ever written review on BeerAdvocate. Here we go again.
Poured into a Miller Lite pint glass.
A - Pours a murky light lemon-yellow colored body with some bubbles rushing topside, and about a finger of frothy doughy off-white head. Just a bit of spotty lacing. Looks pretty good to me.
S - Smell is simple, but nice. Some resinous pine hops, grapefruit, & some honeyed graham cracker malt to keep things in good harmony.
T - Taste follows the nose wonderfully. Bitter pine and grapefruit hops, and a lovingly nice balance of honey, graham cracker, and biscuit malt.
M - Aftertaste is of resinous pine and grapefruit bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, not the most extraordinarily complex IPA out there, but hits it's mark on every level indefinitely. This is the ideal session IPA for me, a beer that I will always consider to be a classic go-to IPA, and one of the first beers that started me on my craft beer journey.
Redhook Long Hammer IPA ---4/5.

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.
A: A slightly cloudy golden with moderate head and retention.
S: Mild notes of hops, pine and citrus.
T: Same as the smell. Mild yet well balanced.
M: Clean and crisp. Goes down easy.
O: A good intro IPA. Not for the hop sadist though. It was the first IPA I ever had and works well in that capacity. Nice to revisit but probably won't buy again.
