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.

Bright clear light gold with a nice off-white head and decent carbonation. Suprisingly nice grapefruit citrusy aroma with other orange citrus character. Solid hop flavors (citrusy but less distinct than aroma) with a nice malty balance. Medium bodied and smoothly refreshing with a nicely bitter (not harsh) finish.

A very nice Redhook and a total suprise/shock for me ... sorry I avoided this one for so long!

I was lucky enough to first try this beer at the redhook brewery in portsmouth and since then Ive been blown away.

Its probably my favorite IPA. Its not overbearing in any sense. They managed to take a traditional recipe and balance it. Not as much hops as one would expect but enough to bring out the real aroma of the times.

Floral highlights with tart bitter hoppy undertones.

Get it, got it? good.

Say Cheese!

I had this in Ft. Lauderdale, without much head, but with a nice cheesey hop aroma, and strong cheddary hops permiates the flava: moreover, it's thin, light and very mildly creamy. The bitter cheese taste made it distinctive and flavorful from the first to last sip.

I'd rather one of this after mowing all this lawn down in South Florida than say, Mehilla. There's was British dude at the next table over-smoking, and talking loudly about his new telephoto lens, and some con artist who stole $200 million dollars, and Long Hammer stood up well to those affronts.

I'd like to see more big bouncing bubbles at the pour.

My goto IPA when I have to beer shop at the local grocery that doesn't have a craft beer selection.
