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.

argo0 (11653) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Lightly hazed light orange body with medium creamy beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral, light citric, . Taste is more pronounced citric (gfruit), medium sweet, but also some biscuit. Finish is floral/grapefruit, mildly bitter. Medium body. Pleasant IPA -- not a hop monster, sort of a cross between an American and English IPA.

bhensonb (11531) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Aroma of floral hop, and arguably pale malt. Hazy golden amber color with a white head that stayed for awhile. Laces a bit as time passes. Medium bodied, with muted carbonation. Starts with very decent hop level, I think its floral and grapefruit. The malt is there, but the hop seems dominant. Definitely grapefruit as time goes on. The finish is dry, and nicely bitter.
