Redhook Long Hammer IPARedhook Long Hammer IPA

Brewed by:
Redhook Ale Brewery
New Hampshire, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

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.

44 IBU

This beer is perfectly fine. If you need a quick IPA and this is all that's on, grab it.

A: Great head retention w fat finger of healthy off-white head slowly lacing the glass.
S: Not much. What's there is creamy, flowery hops with a bit of pine.
T: Sweet, oily hop forward: part floral and part citric. Good with bitter-sweet, asian food.
MF: Sweet, creamy, smooth with a moderate body and nice carbonation. Good grassy finish.

Half way between APA and IPA, a solid staple. I'd drink it again.

12 oz into tulip glass. Pretty fresh, bottled a month to the day before consumption by me. Not sure why most folks dont like it, other than maybe its a subtler IPA than were used to. In any event, I like this beer, since it was pretty cheap for a single bottle ($1.30), and is something I could drink while skateboarding or at a party. Nicely done Redhook.

red hook ipa/long hammer ipa.

16 oz can poured into a pint glass.

there is a date on the bottom of the can, however is it a fresh by date or a DOB? because it says dec0113.

this beer pours pretty poor. a cloudy pale golden color. barely any head and minimal ring lacing. its pretty cloudy and because its over carbonated it really shows.

it doesn't smell bad, but there's not too much going on. a plain hop smell.

the taste is that of disappointment. honestly this is very plain for an IPA. not very hoppy at all. kind of tasted watered down or poorly brewed.

mouth-feel is that of a light beer. for a 6.2 abv IPA i was severely disappointed.

overall there's not much to say about this one. I am sucker for a good IPA and this is not one. better than most mainstream mass produced brews,but that is not saying much.
