Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

I was very surprised to log onto beeradvocate.com and find that this beer only earned a C+ overall and a C- from the bros. I found that this beer was exquisitely drinkable and delicious. I was in the mood for a spring beer. I usually drink dark malty beers, but i felt a craving for a very hoppy beer, maybe due to the approaching summer and higher temps. I saw this IPA in the air force base shoppette and opted for the RedHook ESB instead (very good ale). After a few stops I finally picked up the longhammer. This IPA hits the spot... perfectly!

Appearance - I drink this brew straight from the bottle. I would have poured it into a goblet of some sort, but I just got off work and I need a beer.

Smell - this beer smells very much like an IPA, but with overtones not unlike freshcut grass, and an obvious alcohol possession.

Taste - after smelling the longhammer I took a very apprehensive swig. First off I was blown away by the balance. The taste was very hoppy and bitter, but finished with an exceptional sweet smoothness.

Mouthfeel - very crisp, and refreshing.

Drinkability - I believe this is one of the most drinkable beers i have tasted.

Some people might be taken back by the absence of the bitterness in this IPA. It is too strong and bitter to be a pale ale. But, if you are looking for balance... look no further.

This pours a perfect clear 18 Karat Gold color that has tinges of orange to it. The head is a lofty off white color that is about the consistency of shaving cream. The nose is a sweet malt with hops that reminds me of a pine forest after a rain. The contrast between palate and nose is remarkable and well balanced. Red Hook knows hops. There is a very pleasant effervescent and dry malt flavor followed by an explosion of delicately balanced and aggressive hops. The hop flavor rolls in like the tide to leave a pleasant bitter aftertaste.
