Using the best American and European malts, Bad Henry India Pale Ale flavors the northwest style with an English twist. Of course cascade and fuggles make the perfect hop balance for this hand crafted IPA. Enjoy!

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Fiery amber, moderate frothy off-white head, fairly nice lacing, minimal carbonation.   Fruity nose, pale citrus, soft hop.   Has a bit of powdery sugar in there as well.   Sweet citrusy hops on the tongue.   Not terribly hoppy, seems a bit more than a Pale Ale but not quite an IPA.   Smooth, fairly clean, does finish rather quickly.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Yeah, its like a sweet citrus zest up front, followed by some sweet hop tea.   Tasty, and I bet more interesting on draught.   Would get again, but I would bet that if it were slightly more hoppy with a bit of floral and this thing would be a stunner.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber beer with a low dark cream colored head. Grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit and light summer fruit flavor with light pine and light caramel. Medium bodied. Decent bitterness. Grapefruit and caramel linger.

Aubrey (3452) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2010
Cloudy amber color; no head, even with a vigorous pour. Carbonation is very mild; might have gotten a bottle with a bad seal (or just a bad bottling). Malt flavors are decent; bolder than most IPAs. Lots of toasted toffee and a bit of caramel. Hops are OK; just a little one dimensional and restrained. Lightly herbal and flowery with a mild to moderate bitterness level. OK IPA, just not very exciting to me.

leeamcbrideiii (1) - USA - OCT 1, 2010 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 16, 2012 Darker in color than most ipas. Easy drinking, perhaps too easy. I miss the piney, hoppy punch.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 9, 2010
Bottle: Pours a pale gold with light white head and lacing. The nose is lightly hoppy with some crisp papery cascade hops and a little bit of the earthy kind I don’t want to name. The flavor is light and balanced, very little malt flavor or toastiness. A little one dimensional but the hops are fresh.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 7, 2010
Light citrus hop aroma. pours a cloudy orange-copper, thin white head. Fairly chewy malts. Hops are understated, finish is kind of watery. Not too bad though.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Not the hoppiest of IPA’s. Pretty malt forward. Hops take second place. Easy to drink. Good example of low bitter ale.

hayduke (3470) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 15, 2010
From Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon. This 22 oz bomber poured a slightly cloudy amber color with a moderate off-white head and light lacing. Nose of citrus and caramel malts. Medium body and decently smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Flavor is overall on the mild side however it is well balance between the malts and hops. Slightly bitter which carries over in to the finish. Quite drinkable and enjoyable.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Slightly cloudy orange-amber with a thin off-white head. Pine and soap hop aroma with some sweet malt as well. Feels thin and a little watery. Flavor is malt-heavy and sweet with a hint of alcohol, but lacking enough hop presence to balance it out. Too much of an English influence for my particular taste.
