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.

Hopey flavor and aroma as expected. Nothing stands out to seperate its self from the field. Pine is the most noticable flavour. Compared to Stone, this is a disappointment.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - DEC 29, 2003
Tastes musty. Definately not Stone. It's one of those muddy non-descript beers. Very average.

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2003
Clody orange in colour and mine had no head. Aroma is sweet honey with pine needles. Flavours are mild pine and smooth rather than overly bitter. Spicy and decent but I was disappointed.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2003
Very citrusy hops with a grassy finish - a bit linear, but tasty regardless. The best IPAs - regardless of IBU - tend to have at least enough malt to compensate a bit for the hop flowers, but this was missing it for sure.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2005 Something about ipas just make them smell real nice. this is hoppy beer, but it doesn’t seem to have much else to distinguish it - leaves a tingle on the tongue.

GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Bottle: a slightly above average IPA on the low end of the bitterness scale. Apple and pine aroma. Piney-spicey hop flavor with noticible malt backbone. A good beer but it dosen't distinguish itself from the other IPA's.

Aurelius (4115) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Piney cascade aroma. Apricot colored, fair label. Definitely better than the Eye of the Hawk Ale. Fruity and piney, medium sweetness. Average west coast IPA -- drinkable, but without distinction. Good mouth, overbittered finish.

PorterPounder (5470) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2003
All arond, a solid IPA. Sticky white head sitting on a dark orange colored pour. Good sticky lacing and nice bubble action. Aroma has a sweet piney essence to it with some doughy undertones - very clean. Citrusy sweet flavor gives way to a bittersweet hoppy finish. Mouthfeel has just enough cascade hops to linger around for a while but not enough make you pucker.

raymow (813) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Tastes like a lot of other IPA's that I've had. The only noticable difference was that this was a bit sweeter than normal and not quite as hoppy. Overall, not bad.

obxdude10 (2031) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2003
Disappointing IPA, not a very good example of the IPA style, not enough hops, not very well balanced, very little malty profile, a bit on the bland side
