Longhammer

Brewed by Redhook Brewery
Style - IPA

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.

Editor’s Notes:  Longhammer has a cool bottle, although it reminds me a little of that funky Red Stripe bottle.  “Hooray Beer!”. The aroma is piney and a little funky – definitely not the citrus or floral notes that often signal that something good is coming.  The taste is better than the aroma, with some hop bitterness that stings your tongue. However, it is mostly a balanced IPA that isn’t particularly noteworthy; the malt isn’t particularly interesting, either. Longhammer might be good for a party since it has a good price point and might also be good for new IPA drinkers.
