'Everything great that was ever built required a long hammer. A trusty tool used by ordinary ordinary men to make extraordinary things. Transcontinental train tracks. Impossible pipelines. Soaring skyscraper. Long Hammer IPA puts this bold spirit in a bottle. And like its namesake, it's a beer built to stand the test of time.'
Another temperate IPA, which seems to be a theme this week. It's a pretty flavorful brew, which benefits from how mild the hops is. This beer has very subtle, bizarre, pine taste to it. I don't mean Pine-Sol or anything disgusting like that, it is very subdued and organic in its flavoring. A good amount of citrus zest helps add to the meagre kick without crossing the line. Somehow this beer tastes healthy, even though obviously is not. Its beer, healthy beer is impossible!
Long Hammer is a good beer, but it leaves me craving more hops from an IPA. I have had wheat beers hoppier than this stuff. This beer is certainly good just not what I was looking for in an IPA. I think its going to be hanging out in the fridge until I finally scrath this terrible itch. I itch for hops. What has become of me?
