Man Review - Red Hook Long Hammer IPA

How many times have you read a beer review and wondered what the hell is this guy talking about and what is ASTMD? Well guess what I am not going to bore you with that stuff. I am going to get to the meat of why I like or do not like this beer.

First off it is an IPA, however it is not overpowering and hoppy like most IPA's. There is a little bite on the first swig, yet it goes down very smoothly. There was very little head on the pour. Now the good part. Does it taste good? Yes, it was actually very good. Most people cannot get into IPA's because they can be very overwhelming compared to your average beer. Long Hammer however is great for someone who wants to expand their taste into a the world of IPA's.

Beware - For the beginner, I will tell you this beer can seek up on you. At 6.5% ABV it is more than your Buds and Millers. In layman's terms you will get drunk quicker. So watch out.

I give Red Hook's Long Hammer IPA a 4 out of 5 beers on the man scale. Make sure you check out the links below for more info on Red Hook and Long Hammer.
