    This is one of the worst examples of an ‘IPA’ I’ve ever had. I will give it to RedHook, though, they made a perfect deal with AB to get this urine-swill distributed along with the macros. The macro customer is the only one who will appreciate this. I’m sure they’ll go along bragging about the strongest hammer beer they’ve ever had, and it was even stronger than busch ICE!!!.

    BigMike, lol at “Excellent San Diego Beer!” Poor fella, you really must head east and check out the hottest micro-brew scene in the entire USA! I know, San Diego microbrews have been recieving more awards than Portland recently, but c’mon! That’s Portland Oregon! Portland, Maine was doing this “micro-brew” thang before anyone heard of it. Wiki, doesn’t even have this IPA thing right, saying how it should be amber or copper colored and the more modern paler versions are “West Coast” style, Good God, Man! Remember, Budweiser is the “Great American Lager”. ;p

    While this “commercial” IPA may not be the benchmark, it’s damn good! Hoppy and crisp with a nice kick, as it should be with all those cascade hops. This is a very good bigger than “micro” brew and I’ll not trash these competent NH brewers. Guys from Saint Louis, Missouri don’t like this beer. Nuff said.

    Regards,
    Mike

    This IPA is the most drinkable and consistent IPA in the national market right now. It may be the only IPA in the national market right now. That is why it is the best selling IPA in the nation. Redhook is able to keep it’s delicious products so consistently great because they have a brewery on each coast. Seattle, and New England.

    I really wanted to like this beer more, Red Hook used to be a pretty good fall back beer, and I still don’t mind it. I can honestly say after having Long Hammer twice on tap and twice in bottle, it is really swill tasting. I tried to love it, maybe I’m spoiled on all this excellent San Diego beer. If the beer you had tasted that much better all the way on the east coast, and I’m in Cali. , I feel slightly ripped off!
