Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: pbrian on 03-29-2001

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.

Not into IPA's too much. This beer didn't make me change my mind.

Dry and hoppy. That's it. It doesn't pretend to be anything else.

Purchased 2/28/15, Bottled 11/14
Look: Golden, cloudy
Smell: Sweet, per fumy
Taste: Hmmm - water with hops. Mild with slight aftertaste
Feel: thin

If you want a beer to go with any food without complimenting or overpowering it, this should be it. I would go with a hopped farmhouse.

Crisp and refreshing, drinkable....but why? It has some of the bitterness I expect from an IPA, but very little of the Hoppiness and fruit profile that I've come to require from world class IPAs. Next.

Easy to drink. Opens up in a glass. The fragrance has more bite than the taste.

Long Hammer IPA is an above average beer. The finish on this IPA is sometimes musky to me, however, it is a very dependable ale.
