Originally developed for British sailors stationed in India, IPAs were aggressively hopped to help prevent spoilage on long ocean voyages. Now that spoilage isn’t as big a problem, we’ve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. It’s a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

I remember first trying HW during a visit to Seattle many years ago, in the dawning days of the craft brew movement. I liked it a lot, and wished it was available in the Northeast. Now it looks like HW has been surpassed by a number of other breweries, but it should be remembered that they were one of the earlier participants in the movement. I am surprised this gets a low ranking - it is not bad at all. A mellow and tasty IPA, not very aromatic, lightly herbaceous and piney, and contains a dollop of sugary sweetness. A really good soft IPA.

Nice copper color, but that's about the best part of it. Nose isn't too hoppy, though they come out a fair amount in the flavor. The flavor has bitterness, but it doesn't really have a good full flavor. Run of the mill IPA, nothing to write home about. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ampled at the supermarket, glad I never payed for it. yellow pour with a thin white head. Tme malt aroma was more prominent than hops. The flavor was watery. Very limited hop flavor.

Full flavored IPA. There is a bit of a malt base underneath a hop-flavored beer. Decent IPA that has a good blend to it.

Comes out of the tap a hazy golden amber with a pale golden-buff head - didn’t get much of a head, but that apparently is an artifact of the pour, and it leaves generous lacing. Aroma is hoppy and fruity, mainly apple with a little banana, not spectacular or strong but still inviting. Strongly hoppy flavor is somewhat bitter with woody and fruity notes. Texture has plenty of fizz and sass though just average body. Not the best IPA I have ever had, but certainly worth at least a try.

A clear amber brew with a thin white head. The nose is sweet apples and leather. There is also some musk and flowers. The taste is like light grapefruit and peanuts. There is also plenty of wood and caramel. Bits of spice in the finish. A light and boring IPA.

Dark honey in color. Slight sweet floral aroma. Clean tasting sweet toasty malt flavor with a nice faint citrus rind flavor. Overall, its a tasty brew but probably should be a pale ale as a result of the muted hops presence.

Pour is a golden with a average whtie head. Aroma is mild hops and not much else. Flavor is about the same. A very minor hop with no real malts making an appearace. Poor effort, this is unlike a IPA in just about every way.
