    Redhook Hammermill? IPA. It's meh. I feel like someone has mentioned it before. But I won't be getting it again. Very one dimensional. Bitter like they didn't have enough hops for the late additions so they just boiled it another 20 minutes.

    This used to be a pretty decent IPA (or at least I thought). One of two things happened.

    1. My taste changed and I got exposed to good ipa's and this one now sucks. Or...
    2. When they were bought by AB they screwed up the recipe.

    My bro-in-law thinks it's reason #1. We used to drink this stuff like water.

    When it first came out I kinda liked it .... always thought it was light on late addition hops and could have used more body ... but a good lawnmower beer ... it's just horrible to me now
