some of the hatred for this beer is a bit over-the top, and I think the frustration really lies in the idea that this beer is not really half bad, but it could be so much more. it's not really an IPA that challenges the palate, but rather, is fairly representative of the style and another IPA in the hop-filled market at the moment. although it was likely fairly groundbreaking to the American market when originally released by Red Hook, Long Hammer has become a sort of also-ran in the IPA market. A solid brew, without a doubt (imagine if this was in 30 packs for cheap?!?!!) but hard for me to pull off the shelf when there are so many other brews available at a similar price point. I would recommend trying this if it's part of a Red Hook sampler pack or the like, but I wouldn't trudge through the forests of Siberia to find this fairly average IPA.
