3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle to a tulip. Pours hazy copper with white head. Aroma is pine, citrus zest(but minimal), and hints of candy sugar. Taste is well balanced. It is certainly bitter, but it doesnít completely cancel out the malt giving it a great character. Seems like it has average carbonation and sticks to your tongue for quite a bit. Overall, good. I like it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml brown bottle. Gold colour with a bit of haze, large white head that is creamy and lots of sticky lacing. Light nose, getting some caramel hints, light oranges. Taste - grains, light caramel and orange peels. Faint late bitterness, light fruity notes, some orange zest, some grains in the aftertaste and light hop notes. The 7% never shows up, pretty sessionable for itís strength, overall just feels a bit average, lacks intensity in the hops dept. Was hoping for a bit more...

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
From bottle to pint at Bearfoot Tavern (Macon, Jawja). This beer is proof that you can?t always go by reviews. It ain?t great but its worth a try once or twice.

Very cloudy pour thick and tiny foam. Grapefruit taste with mild hops. Not as bad as the ratings show. Would have it again. Expected bad tho

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 12 oz, total wine & more. Pours clear darker amber with a small creamy/bubbly off white head leaving lacing. Aroma is malty, sweet, bisquity, caramel, citric and soem tropical fruits. Flavor is a bit odd, not in balance. Bitter, watery, sweet, caramel, bready and fruity. Finish with harsh longlived bitterness.

golden with small head. a decent looking beer, but thatís all i can say thatís nice. this is a godawful beer. it somehow manages to be extremely bitter with no other flavor whatsoever. iíd rather wash my mouth out with soap than drink this one. drain pour.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark orange with a small, off-white head. The aroma is strong pine and floral hops, with notes of coriander, vanilla, and caramel. The flavor is sweet, with a mild hop bitterness. The palate is thin, syrupy, and a little acidic. The carbonation is minimal. The aftertaste is short and malty. Overall, this a good, drinkable beer, but it lacks the hop profile of a great IPA.

not bad since I donít like ipaís; glass to bottle aroma was slight pine and mustiness. Taste was slightly sweet up front with hops at back of throughout - drinkable but not enjoyable

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. Gusher though it doesnít smell of an infection. Hazy, yellow orange appearance with a huge cream colored head. Sweet floral hoppy, honey, potpourri aroma. Somewhat bready, lightly toasty, a touch fruity, a little tangy, floral flavor. I really didnít like this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mendocino White Hawk Original IPA has a medium, creamy and cream-colored head, and a hazy, yellow-orange appearance, with decent lacing. The aroma is of orange peel, water, some barley malt, and a bit of hop sting. Taste is of dank citrus, slightly turned fruit, mustiness, malt, bread, and there is a subdued hop bitterness with this. Mouthfeel is medium, and White Hawk IPA finishes semi-dry and ragged. Overall, this is unrefined, yet solidly good. RJT
