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.

Beer4000 (4619) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2014
355 ml bottle. Slightly unclear deep golden body with a medium sized off-white head. Nice aroma of citric fruit and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet, caramel malt, biscuit, citric fruit and decent bitterness. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. A well-made, straight forward old school American IPA with malt balance. Nothing special but nothing wrong either. A decent thirst quencher.

BucannonXC5 (937) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Type: 12-oz. bottle Glass: Lagunitas mason jar From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif. Price: $1.25 Purchased: Jan. 4, 2014 Consumed: Jan. 11, 2014 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel orange semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki white head. Tons of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top all the way down. First smells reminded me of a stronger pilsner. Overall got corn, lemon wheat grass, spruce hops, lemon rind and some pine. By the end was thinking of a stronger regular Blue Moon. Also light floral notes. The taste was similar to the nose. Got lots of wheat, grass and corn, but also honey, sharp grapefruit rind and lots of bitterness. Not too solid. Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. Just an average IPA. Nothing exceptional at all.

355mL thanks to Dedicatedtofun! Clear orange, nice white webby lacing. Nose is sweet artificial orange, flashes of odd chemical. Taste is harsh stomach acid, eating a penny. Oh gross. It takes skill to make beer taste this badly.

yngwie (14168) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
Botte, 12oz. It pours a lighlty hazy body, dark golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick light beige head leaving lacings. It’s citrusy and lightly hayish on the nose, with some resiny hints. Rather malty. That goes for the flavor too, where there’s also a nice bitterness. Full body, pleasant carbonation and quite dry. Lasting bitter finish. Sort of boring this one, but quite nice anyway. 131231

Poured to duvel goblet A: eggy single finger whipped head sticks around. Golden ale with excellent clarity. Consistent runs replenish the head. Nice lacing sticks to the edges. S: sweet nougat, resiny, piney. Not really what you expect from a CA IPA, a bit weak. T: sweet and bitter. Well balanced with piney hops. M: lovely and bubbly. Bit of a burn. Light. D: decent beer. Pretty average. Serving type: bottle 02-06-2011
