Redhook Brewery started in Seattle Washington but can also be found in Woodinville Washington and Portsmouth New Hampshire. With the launch of Redhook Brewery in BC and Alberta Canada I bring you the review of their “Long Hammer IPA”. The beer pours an orange colour with a white head. The aroma consists of grassy, floral hops, orange and some malts. The flavour is of bready grainy malts, mild hops bitterness, earthy, orange and citrus. The alcohol content comes in at 6.2% with an IBU of 44. This may not be a ground breaking IPA but it is very tasty and I would not walk past it in a liquor store for sure.
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.
