Nothing too special with this ipa. Yes, a citrus note on the nose with some piney characters. The lacing was average at best for a good ipa. Then the taste...it did nothing to bring out the hops in this, more malt than anything. I felt like there was a bitter feel that fizzeled out and left me wanting something more.

Dark golden color, not much aroma, what is there is pine-y. First impression is pine-y hops, then malt peeks thru. The malt eventually becomes a little too sweet. Medium bodied.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden orange color with a medium thick eggshell white head that lasted pretty well. Thin lacing. The aroma is musty and mildly hopped, with a faint hint of citrus. One-dimensional flavor. Straight hops without a whole lot of taste, and a bit of grapefruit is about it. Boring.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours orangish/amber color with thin head. Semi floral taste with pretty decent amount of hoppiness. Nice bitterness kick to it although maybe a little overdone. Overall its a pretty good Ipa but could be a little better balanced.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was presently surprised by this IPA I must admit. I had read some of the reviews before I had tried this one and I don't really understand why it rates so low? Mild grass hop and pine aroma that isn't as strong as I would like but pleasant nonetheless. Pours out copper orange red with a medium head and noticeable lacing. Flavor was strong bitter at first than trailing off to a dry finish. Fairly well balanced and very easy to drink. A very good session beer. I think it deserves a higher rating that it gets by most, but that?s just my opinion. Try it, I don?t think it will disappoint.

While I did not love redtail ale, at least that beer had some good hops in it. Seriously weak bitterness for and IPA. Or perhaps i should say bad bitterness because what was there was just not very enjoyable. I like IPA’s so I could not hate this beer but did not really enjoy it

I had a lot of beers this night and this beer didn’t get my attention. Nothing fancy or new. An overall IPA.

White head, which I assume led to the beer’s name, with an amber appearance. Flavor is strongly hopped, which is to be expected from an IPA, but as far as comparisons to typical Pale Ales go, this one’s a bit weaker. Recommended.

I’m not an I.P.A. fan, so I have no real valid critcism. I wil, however, give you my opinion of this beer.
Not too bad. Flowery, and bitter, but not overbearing like a lot of other I.P.A.’s. A little sweeter as well.

Fragrant floral aroma and nice pour. Heavy bitter, but was the source hops or alcohol? Lightly malty
