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

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.

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.
