White Hawk is a traditional IPA .The IPA recipe is based on the original 1880 brew that was sent to India for the British troops.The advent of India Pale Ale was born of a need to supply beer in the 1800’s to British troops in India. This hearty, heavily hopped ale was brewed to endure the rigors of the long voyage from Great Britain.

White Hawk Original IPA was launched in California in early 2002 to meet the demand for a unique India Pale Ale. Consumer response for White Hawk IPA exceeded expectations and it is fast gaining a loyal following both in 6 pack and on draft.

An English IPA with Cascade and Fugle hops. Fruity and hoppy. An excelent IPA for the hot days.

average frothy offwhite head. mostly diminishing. thick translucent beige body. aroma: caramel, moderate hoppy, citrus orange. if and ff: light sweet moderate bitter; average duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Pesado amargor de lupulo, permeado por dulçor cítrico, que não lembra exatamente laranja, como a média do estilo. Dulçor traz também no background a leve lembrança de quik de morango. Sabor picante. Leve metalizado no final do gole surge como defeito, pois foi degustada cinco meses antes do vencimento.30 s

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy dark orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, herbal, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid IPA. Good complexity and robustness of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Sporting the regular pine and grapefruit flavors, more of the latter, but in a rather mild manner. Alcohol shines through a bit too much in the finish and chest.

"consistancy prevents me from putting this one at the top...at one point a few years ago it was my favorite ipa (pre stone), but over the years Mendocinos quality has tailed off...not as big and hoppy as it used to be, but still good." Used to be great!

The body has a golden amber color with a one inch collar of bright white foam. The head quickly settle to a wispy thin layer that makes some spotty lacing. Its nose has the classic American citrus hops with notes of lemon, grapefruit and a touch of pine. I also get light toffee like malt underneath the hops. Just as I was expecting from the aroma I get citrusy grapefruit rind and some pine like hop notes right up front. It’s not over the top with hops but the balance in favor of the hops over the light base of candy like malt sweetness. Hop flavor runs right into the finish and gives it a gentle bitter fade. An easy drinking medium body rounds out the palate.

Pours a clear amber with nice white head leaving good lacing. Aroma is malty, possibly some expired hops? Taste is thin, some stale malts, salty, odd bitterness at the end. Not good for me.

12 oz bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus and resiny hops, caramel, toasted malts, with a mild bitterness to the finish. Nothing bad, but everything is muted.
