Brewers Description of IPA Summer Beer:

“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.”

Long Hammer IPA summer beer from Red Hook is a great.

Our Review:

Long Hammer’s filtered marigold colored pour produces a sachet of honey and citrus. The brawny head temporary impedes tasting as it leisurely disperses. Unearth piquant hops woven into a medium physique throughout tasting, which concludes with a modicum of malts.

Long Hammer is a relatively mild, yet solid, IPA, which makes it splendid for the summer heat. It is also an extremely approachable inaugural IPA for those unfamiliar with the style.
