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.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A-Nice golden color. Very appealing.

S-Mild citrus and grapefruity aroma.

T-Tastes more like a mild pale ale compared to other IPAs I've had. In fact, I remember this being a little more on the bitter side but not overwhelming.

M-Light, not too watery, not too heavy at all.

O-This was the first IPA I drank-a few years back-and it's what made me fall in love with this particular style, but for some reason I remember it being 6.7% ABV, and it had a stronger hop flavor. It's very drinkable, but I'm disappointed.

Poured into a tulip from a bomber. 2-finger off-white head that dissipated quickly. Little lacing. The beer is pretty, filtered and traditional-looking.

Citrusy hops in the nose, lemon tartness, boozy atringency. Nice.

Flat. Vacant, watery, not particularly hoppy or malty. Clean, but absent of a lot of flavor.

We've all had this IPA a dozen times before. It's not bad, but it doesn't stand out in any way.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Definitely a weak spot for this beer: it pours a clear, light amber leaning towards yellow with lots of light bubbles. It's clearly not a AAL, but the filtration and clarity are far from many of my favorite IPAs.

S: The can bursts open with a big punch of pine and citrus. It fades, though, becoming softer and sweeter.

T: Crisp citrus-pine hop notes lead, but they're modest, over a slightly sweet, bready malt background. Pretty well balanced and crisp, but fairly subdued.

M: Fairly light body, without any of the chewiness of some bigger IPAs, but a very nice level of carbonation keeps this a pleasant drinker.

O: Fairly middle-of-the-road, and not something I seek out, but it's pleasant enough and good in a bind. The cans make it a bit more versatile and make the aroma much more indulgent than I've ever experienced with Long Hammer on-tap or from a bottle.

12oz into pint

Look is a yellow-gold with a small white head. Smell is oily pine, white bread. Taste is bitter one-note piney hops with some light bready malt. Feel is a medium but a tad over-carbonated.

Very average IPA that is more like a regular pale with some additional hopping. Not very impressive but good for the price. Cheaper than most other IPAs.

3.2/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a clear light golden colour, finger of head with little retention and no real lacing.

S - Scent is a tad mild, but dominated by sweet citrus hop notes a touch of pine and cotton candy on the finish.

T - A decent hop profile, though is more mellow, with some earthy citrus tones balanced out with a bready caramel malt profile.

M - Medium bodies, smooth and a touch of dryness on the finish.

I - A decent IPA that is nicely balanced and easily sessioned, but could certainly use a boost to kick it into the next level.
