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

22 oz pour at Wild Wings, Grand Forks.

Pours what appears to be a rich brownish red (the restaurant was dark) with a light tan head that laces exceptionally well up and down the glass the entire pour. Fairly strong hop presence on the nose with citrus being prominent. Nice nutty malt backbone that compliments the hops and crisp bitterness. A very enjoyable and quaffable pint.

This beer is a beautiful gold colour with an aroma of fruitiness, probably citrusy but more orange than lemon. It has a very light bitterness but as hoppy as any good India Pale Ale. Very refreshing and day with nice sunny weather. This beer's got good character.

Copper and clear, nice 2 finger head in an hourglass pilsner glass. Lacing is good. Head retention is strong.

Smells like a good IPA. Plenty of hops and pine.

Taste is a bit sweet. Not unbearably so, but certainly not a typical "hop bomb" like your usual American IPA.

Finishes very dry, not my favorite. Very carbonated and an easy drinker.

I gave it a pretty high overall score due to the fact that it isn't a bad beer at all, just not the typical American IPA. Seems like an IPA light beer, if there is such a thing. It's a good beer, but doesn't represent the style very well at all. Also, not a great beer to just sit and drink, would probably be a bit better paired with some food.
