COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

VinegarStroke (210) - Napa, California, USA - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle: Amber gold, very hazy light cloud. Good solid white head. Malt driven IPA. Closer to English style than classic West Coast IPA. Slightly toasted roasty aromas. There is a stale, dank yeast lees aroma. Identical to Scrimshaw. The hops add a subtle note with just a hint of citrus. Off dry. Malt dominated and very bitter. Good weight and length. Solid, not great beer.

strap (373) - honolulu, Alabama, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Cloudy, dirty amber pour. Bubble gum? There's something slightly off kilter with this beer. Aroma doesn't remind me of any IPA. Hops are bitter, and not a lot of flavored coming through. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dliberto (81) - Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Drank from a bottle. Aroma is not to strong a lot of normal IPA characteristics dont come through like they should. The taste is bitter the effect is long lasting but the flavor just isnt quite there. Very meh for an IPA
