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

Poured into a glass mug. Pours pale golden with an abundant, slowly dissipating white head. There are abundant tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. There are aromas of sweet malts and citrusy and piney hops. It's not a strong aroma, but it is a pleasing and inviting aroma. The taste follows the nose. There are sweet, bready malts accompanied by mild citrus and pine hop flavors. There's a mild bitter aftertaste, but this clears up relatively quickly. The body is medium with adequate carbonation. The finish is crisp and dry. The drinkability is high. Overall, this is a very good beer. While there are better IPAs on the market, this one is certainly worth a try if you're exploring the style.

A Pilsner look with light golden color and nice head that dissipates slowly to thin head that lasts. Limited veins.
S Very hoppy aroma.
T Very smooth, sweet IPA with limited bitterness. Grapefruit hop taste that lingers.
M Very smooth drink that is arguably my favorite part of the selection. Maybe the smoothest IPA I've ever had.
O A good sweet IPA with enough bitterness for the style but with a sweetness and creaminess that makes it unique. Very drinkable. This beer gets surprisingly poor reviews and I think it's due to it being on the light side hop wise for the style. I understand that criticism but it has solid bitterness and it's creaminess and drinkability make it unique. It's the opposite of a Stone selection but has it's place in the beer pantheon as a lighter hopped, smoother IPA. Underrated in my opinion.
