Not really many flavors and none characteristic of an IPA. I wouldn’t buy this again.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - average gold with a foamy head that went away quickly. Skunky aroma and a metallic taste. I thought I bought an IPA but this certainly tastes like your typical mexican lager. Fail.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Long Island, NY - 12 oz. bottle poured a copper color with little head and slight lacing. Aroma is a little hops and a soapy scent. Taste is very lager like, more malty than hoppy. There is a hint of bitterness but not like a pale should be. Aftertaste is soapy and not inviting for another sip. Not recommended.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My first Henry Weinard’s beer. This is a little different than the IPA’s than what i consider my faves, but i like the hoppiness. It makes me feel like im on a Pegasus.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Honey, barley malt, and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sweet orange malt and lightly bitter orange peel flavor. Medium body. I seem to remember Henry Weinhard beers were a whole lot better in the mid 90s - most likely because they beat most of the crap available back then.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orangish gold body with a minimal fizzy white head that vanished pretty quickly. The nose is too light on the hops to truly be considered an IPA, but I guess that’s what they call it. Light floral hops is all that I’m getting from this with a bland caramel malt base. The flavor is lacking in bitterness, the hops that are there are mostly floral tasting and don’t do much to snazz up the flavor profile. Bland and boring toasted and caramel maltiness below. Finishes rather limp and meek with some slight graininess. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation and a watery texture. This one was pretty boring.

Second beer of the Seattle "Always-See-But-Never-Drink" Blind Tasting. Clear, slightly sickly yellow. Medium body, sparkly, corn, house yeast. Some mild, old school hopping. Really not terrible, but a bit over produced ’macro’ tasting. But nice to have some old school memories of Weinhards! Some of my first beer memories are from this brand, back when my dad had six packs of Blue Boar around.
