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.

Bottle @ Torben Mathews Tasting. Pours clear amber with fizzy white head. Aroma is light malty, caramel, chocolate, light hoppy and light floral with notes of grapefruit, brown sugar, butterscotch, nutmeg and sugar candy. Taste is initial sweet, then light acidic and heavy bitter. Body is watery to oily with lively carbonation.

Pours a orangish, copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is of pine and citrus. Nice IPA taste with a lightly bitter (certainly not overwhelming) finish.

hfmejias (775) - Dover, Delaware, USA - APR 2, 2013
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Clear amber with a nice white head. Aroma is mix of hops and malts. Flavor very consistent with aroma balanced with some caramel. Overall an easy to drink well balanced beer, great to have in the fridge but nothing spectacular.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Brewed in Saratoga Springs, NY. Resinous hop aroma with a surprisingly profound caramel background. Bitter fruity flavor, grapefruit I guess, malt fades compared to the scent. Foggy orange color. Crisp body, goes down easy for a relatively high strength to body-weight. Nice label design.

Very malty. Okay maybe this was what an IPA was at one time... that was then... this is now. Just skip it. Not an IPA, unless you want to pretend... may be the right thing for those not ready to step up to the big plate.

Well-balanced, easy to drink; typical Mendocino quality. Pour is nice; the nose is even better. Not as aggressive as a lot of IPAs but very solid. The ABV is masked really well. Becoming one of my go-to beers.
