2.55/5 rDev -21.8%
A - Pale gold, white head has some retention and lacing. Not bad.
S/T - Herbal hops, backed up by some pale malts, grainy, cereal grain sweetness, finishing lightly bitter with some pine and herbal notes. Some astringency.
M - Light body, lively carbonation. Turns thin halfway through, a little watery. Slight astringency.
O - Lighter, less bold flavors and aroma than the standard IPA. Just seems to be lacking the needed depth in the style.

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.

Pours with a good head that stays, minimal lace. Yellow to amber color. Smells of orange and grain. Mouth is thin, with slight bitter and foam. Orange profile with a bit of juicy fruit at the end. Not very hoppy, not real bitter, in fact, more like a pale ale than a IPA. Overall, okay, but more like a BMC style "IPA" than a real IPA.

Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. A hint of pine in the aroma. Taste is dry bready flavor up front, followed by some citrus and pine. A bit watery for its alcohol content. Overall a pretty good tasting, but somewhat light version of an IPA.
