    [Best served in a Shaker glass]

    The pour was a sparkling clear medium yellow with a slight orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that lasted for a good while leaving behind a thick foamy cap which produced some fair spotty lacing.

    The aroma was mild to say the least of a mild hay like malt, an herbal hop and a light moldy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a bit of citrus.

    The taste was mildly sweet and acidic with a note of caramel at first and then became mildly hoppy with notes of toffee and citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration, with a hoppy citrus taste left behind to linger for just a little while longer.

    Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.

    Overall an average tasting IPA, a bit hoppy but nothing to overbearing...

    Let's compare this to a strong IPA (one of the best ones), Dogfish Head 60 min IPA. This beer in comparison has a much softer bite and aftertaste.

    What this really means is that when you drink the beer (in my case, I had it in a bottle) - the taste is not overwhelming. In fact, it underwhelms a little bit, but for those individuals who don't like a hoppy beer - long hammer IPA certainly will help you train your palate to accept and eventually love them. Try this one out for those who are faint of heart for the hops.

    One of my favorite IPA's for its hoppy flavor and over overall smoothness. Very good beer to pair with a steak or any thing else on the BBQ.

    A fairly drinkable IPA, but definetly lighter than your typical bold brew. With lower IBU's this IPA sheds a few key attributes of packing a typical punch. Not my first choice when it comes to IPA but much better than the slim chance.
