3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a very light brown amber with a small white head. Aroma is lightly citric, pine forward with a herbal characteristics. A high level of biscuity malts come out as well. Flavor is the same type of grassy pine hops, yet are subdued as the sweet caramel malts creep through. A bit of bread grain in the finish which is mildly bitter. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. For a hop head, this is a so so IPA but its a nice IPA for those who may not like to eat hops out of the bottle.

Nah, not any good. Far behind some proper West Coast IPAs. This is very one-dimensional, just bitter, nothing else to balance. Where’s the floralness or the fruitiness? Nowhere to find it. I find it less of any copy, but more of an APA. And the figure on the label is Gyr Falcon, not a White Hawk.

Yah, back to that whole copying the old English style of anything...classic, but just not packing the flavor as much as it could...

Average IPA. Nothing really to say here. Brown, white head, hoppy, bitter, medium body. Not bad. Not spectacular.

Pours a orangish, copper color with a thin white head. Aroma is of pine and citrus. Nice IPA taste with a lightly bitter (certainly not overwhelming) finish.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Clear amber with a nice white head. Aroma is mix of hops and malts. Flavor very consistent with aroma balanced with some caramel. Overall an easy to drink well balanced beer, great to have in the fridge but nothing spectacular.
