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.

I really enjoyed the offering from Red Hook, the first one of theirs that I have had. Great dark amber, almost caramel color that was appealing day and night. The smell was awesome, by far the best smelling IPA I've had - very fruity. The taste was great as well, strong flavors of citrus and spices. The only downer was the mouthfeel,to much bitter aftertaste for my liking. Otherwise a great beer. I'm looking forward to some more tonight.

I'm a huge IPA fan, really the only beer type I enjoy anymore. Red hook long hammer is a great IPA beer. I do not know why there are so many less favorable reviews on this beer. It is not the best IPA I've ever had, but it is in the top 5. For the price it is the best tied with Ranger. The only IPAs I enjoy more cost twice the price. So for an everyday beer, this is my go to.

I have learned there is a distinct difference between East coast and West coast IPAs. I live in Florida and have had some local brewed IPAs and must say I was disappointed. Super rancid grapefruit juice. I apparently prefer West coast IPA.

This beer begins and finishes smooth. Strong citrus and pine flavor that has the perfect balance. No bitter or sour notes. Extremely drinkable.
