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.

12oz trader joes.This is a decent IPA and there is nothing special or unique about it. The taste is pretty much right in line with all the other IPA’s of the world, with more hops than the average beer. If you are rating this beer against all other IPA’s it would be right in the middle of the pack. Not great, not aweful, just decent.

It pours as light gold with a finger’s worth of foam. Nice lacing ensues. The nose has good balance to it. Flowery hop mild bitters mixed with caramel malt. The bitterness from the hops is sharp but tempered by malt. It’s actually more bitter, flowery-herbal, than I expected from the smell. There’s grapefruit hitting my palate but it’s sharing duties with herbal and flower like bitterness. The malt comes across as lightly sweet with some biscuit. Good mouthfeel, good drinkability. Good IPA.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Poured from a 22. Aroma has an apricot nose to it. It is a bit watery and doesn’t have any strong/present flavors. Flavor is definitely a stone fruit type flavor with a bitter and slightly metallic finish. The beer looked chewy with all the floaties in it, but really was surprisingly thin. Not bad - a decent every day drinker. Masks the 7% pretty well!

An English IPA with Cascade and Fugle hops. Fruity and hoppy. An excelent IPA for the hot days.

danielyabu (1360) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - JAN 12, 2015
average frothy offwhite head. mostly diminishing. thick translucent beige body. aroma: caramel, moderate hoppy, citrus orange. if and ff: light sweet moderate bitter; average duration. palate: medium body, watery/oily texture, lively carbonation, metallic finish. Pesado amargor de lupulo, permeado por dulçor cítrico, que não lembra exatamente laranja, como a média do estilo. Dulçor traz também no background a leve lembrança de quik de morango. Sabor picante. Leve metalizado no final do gole surge como defeito, pois foi degustada cinco meses antes do vencimento.30 s

Bottle from Food Pantry Waikiki 211214. Big hop aroma with fresh cut flowers, citrus and passionfruit coming to the fore. Full in the mouth with a big body.

superspak (3406) - Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy dark orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, herbal, floral, grass, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange zest, pine, caramel, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very solid IPA. Good complexity and robustness of citrus/pine hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Sporting the regular pine and grapefruit flavors, more of the latter, but in a rather mild manner. Alcohol shines through a bit too much in the finish and chest.
