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.

Not bad. Pours cloudy amber, sea foam head. Good lacing. Light mouthfeel, smooth hop bitterness because of the malty imbalance. No way to tell how fresh the bottle is so maybe it was towards end of shelf life. Otherwise I would compare it to the Sam Smith IPA.

12 oz bottle. deep copper amber color medium opaque. nice aroma of citrus and caramel. nice balance of hops and malt. not too overdone in either direction. butterscotch vanilla citrus hop palate, with nice bitter drop off. not a huge fan of IPA, but really like this one.

Pours a golden color with a small white head. Aroma is subdued, but can smell pine, citrus, and some floral notes. Taste caramel along with mild citrus and pine hoppy bitterness. Medium to light bodied.

Has that same nasty twangy metallic copper aftertaste that the Red Tail does. Blech. I love beer and will even drink a Bud if the moon hits it right, but this crap had me struggling through bottle #3. I’ll stick to my homebrew.

EXCELLENT BEER. NICE MUSTY ALE NOSE TO IT AND A GORGEOUS TAN BOUQUET MAKES THIS A RATHER ATTRACTIVE BEER TO STARE AT. FLAVOR IS THE REAL PRIZE. WHITE HAWK IS PROBABLY (AND I HAVEN’T CHECKED MY RATING LIST YET BUT) THE BEST IPA I’VE TASTED THUS FAR. REALLY NICE AND HOPPY, BITTER IF YOU WILL. A PERFECT SUMMER BEER AND DEFINITLY WORTH THE PRICE. OVERALL YOU CAN’T LOSE IF YOU’RE A HOPHEAD.

I think my problem is that I always love the smell of an IPA, but usually not the taste. Not the best I’ve had, but not bad.

I like the hoppiness of this bottled IPA. Well balanced and a good finish. Definitely not for those who shy away from bitter.

Hops with a earthy and smoke flavor define this brew. Not a bad tasting IPA but not worth going out of your way to get.

This brew aint too bad. Sharp taste but goes down smoother than a baby’s ass. High gravity means drunkie drunk
