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 from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Looks pretty good. Golden/amber/orange body. Bountiful off-white head displays decent retention.

Smell: Citric hop aroma that one would expect from an American IPA. The aroma does seem to be a little light, however.

Taste: Underwhelming. The hops and malts are present but they seem too watered down. Orange and a little pine from the hops.

Mouthfeel: Did I just drink air? Way too thin of a mouthfeel.

If one pretends this is a pale ale then it's O.K., but this was a very weak interpertation of the style. Pale color, head and lacing decent. Very weak aroma and taste for the style, mouthfeel is rich and full and it went down easy, but... The original name is Ballard Bitter, if it had remained that I would have ranked it higher, as would many other advocates.
