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.

Cloudy yellow amber,thin white head.Nose is mostly malt. Flavor is unremarkable...subdued hops and slightly noticeable malt. Drinkable but nothing special

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Golden yellow. Big, sturdy white head. Woodsy, piney hops. dry spicy finish. Very not bad, if a touch one-dimensional.

rauchbier (3592) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2003
Bottle conditioned, or maybe just rough filtered? Hazy gold/amber, good but thin white head and good condition. Big aromas of spicy peppery hops, pine resin, sweet honey and malt. Good balance of hop and malt in the mouth (seems more like English rather than US hops). Long lingering hop finish.

krisbierjaeger (844) - dolores, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2003
dandelion yellow, topped with a fluffy pillow of cottony foam. robust pine cone aroma-- but drier smelling, as if the cones were baked by drought on a dusty forest floor. likewise in the flavor, big bitterness scrapes across the tongue without much sweetness or fruitiness to soften the blow. malts are very blonde and crouton bready-crisp-- they're just the trellis in which to support the dense folliage of papery hops. fairly pedestrian medium-strength hop juice with a smooth palate.

I like this IPA over some others. A very nice hoppy flaver, and a slightly bitter finish.

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2003
What I think of when I think of boring, early 90s IPA. The big rocky head just heightens the disappointment: straightforward (boring) hop aroma. Pretty good basic light malt overwhelmed at the end with massive bitterness. Tediously and unecessarily bitter.

Kaya161 (1128) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2003
Golden-yellow colour. Citrusy aroma. Flavour to match. Not much malt balance. Not bad, but it's like every other American IPA.

sloth (2443) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Big ole white pillowy head that hangs on. Clear, light copper color. Large chunks of lacing hanging down the sides of my glass. Big hop nose, some bubblegum and some malt too. Medium body. Lots o hops, oily, inky. Bitter, long dry hop finish with some biscuity maltiness at the end, nice IPA.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Clear, deep golden brew with a white, large, rocky head. Mostly lasting with spunky lacework. The nose contains honey, evergreen, black pepper, whole grain rice and hearty white bread. Warmly bitter from start to finish. Numbing and pleasant experience. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish!
