2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Into a snifter. Cloudy copper color with a finger of head.
Solid pine smell.
Pine and grapefruit bitterness with a gripping bitterness middle to end.
Higher carbonation. Medium body.
Standard IPA except the carbonation was too high. It attacked me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a sort of copper color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is fruity, apples, pine, citrus, crisp, sweet, little sour; hint of booze. Taste is apple, pear, pine, hints of toffee; a momentary very bitter kick. Slightly chewy mouth feel. It isnít bad; I would definitely drink this if it were cheap in a bar. But I wonít be running out and buying a pack.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Copper gold color with some cloudyness, off white pillowy head with decent lacing. has a Carmel citruce hops and malt aroma. Taste has some bitterness upfront with a decent malt backbone with Carmel and citrucy notes and apricot, a tinge of tin taste, bitterness lingeres for a while. Decent ipa pretty typical tasting though. Might pick it up again ;)

Yum! Didnít think I would think this one was all that great, but the liquor store guy talked me into it. After the first drink I thought "oh that is good" This beer reminds me of drinking with Tori Olson. :) Super hoppy

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured in to the glass from the bomber. Aroma is of dank hops. Flavor is very bitter and lacking citrus notes, rather earthy tones come through. Palate is oily and sticky. Overall its a ipa, just harsh and in your face bitter. Nice lacing. Slightly hazy

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium orange pour with a frothy white head. Aromas of hops, citrus orange, mango, pine. Bittersweet on first sip, finishing bitter. White Hawk is quite thin, but flavoursome. Hops dominate, with citrus sweetness coming through.
Not bad at all.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle in Kauaíi. Brassy amber, low white foam. Slightly vegetal, metallic, cherry boiled sweet aroma. Feels cheap and/or old with a smear of peachy hop, rusty bottlecap, tonic water and hay character. Feels like a rusty, uneventful pasteurised English bitter thatís been stood too long on the shelf. Donít rate these boys at all.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Pours copper with good head & lacing. Nose of pine and citrus. Taste is hop forward with a very nice bitter mouth. Gets more pronounced as it warms. Very good. From tap at Olde Saratoga brewing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of caramel, lovely clear golden-orange color. Aromas of spruce and citrus. Not overly agressive, but hops-forward. With medium sweetness, medium body, and distinctive hps, this is a nice IPA.
