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.

Pours a light, cloudy amber with a small head and a decent lace. Smells like a really floral IPA, but more floral than hoppy, if that makes sense. Flavor is rather subdued, IMO, for an IPA, but it's quite good. Very malty to complement the floral hops. Not very bitter. There's some biscut in there. Mouthfeel is average with a hint of citrus aftertaste. Overall I really liked this, but if you're looking for a hop-fix, this isn't the IPA you seek.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - OCT 19, 2003
Very light orange with some haziness. Smallish tan head. Smells floral and citrus. Taste is pretty malty for an IPA. Not really what I expected from this style. Hops are there but subdued (or maybe overpowered) by the malt. Mouthfeel a little too thin.

argo0 (12460) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 14, 2003
Lightly hazed light orange body with medium creamy beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, floral, light citric, . Taste is more pronounced citric (gfruit), medium sweet, but also some biscuit. Finish is floral/grapefruit, mildly bitter. Medium body. Pleasant IPA -- not a hop monster, sort of a cross between an American and English IPA.

hotstuff (4424) - Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2003
Oh no an IPA! I just love IPA's! NOT!! This one poured a small sized ivory and creamy head that contained fine-medium sized bubbles. It had a cloudy and carbonated body with a pale yellow hue. The nose was hoppy, fruity and sweet with a bitter, sweet and hoppy flavor from start to finish that left an aftertaste. The mouthfeel was tingly and medium bodied.

thedm (5207) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 10, 2003
This brew poured a medium head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a carbonated slightly hazy straw yellow colored body. The aroma is very mild for an IPA and hard to even get the hops from it. The mouthfeel if typical for an IPA with a bubbly hoppy sting to it. The flavor is mediumly hopped for a good IPA. NOt bad if one is trying an IPA for the first time, but definately not up to a hopheads standards.

Cloudy yellow amber,thin white head.Nose is mostly malt. Flavor is unremarkable...subdued hops and slightly noticeable malt. Drinkable but nothing special

Suttree (5646) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2003
Golden yellow. Big, sturdy white head. Woodsy, piney hops. dry spicy finish. Very not bad, if a touch one-dimensional.

rauchbier (3686) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2003
Bottle conditioned, or maybe just rough filtered? Hazy gold/amber, good but thin white head and good condition. Big aromas of spicy peppery hops, pine resin, sweet honey and malt. Good balance of hop and malt in the mouth (seems more like English rather than US hops). Long lingering hop finish.

dandelion yellow, topped with a fluffy pillow of cottony foam. robust pine cone aroma-- but drier smelling, as if the cones were baked by drought on a dusty forest floor. likewise in the flavor, big bitterness scrapes across the tongue without much sweetness or fruitiness to soften the blow. malts are very blonde and crouton bready-crisp-- they're just the trellis in which to support the dense folliage of papery hops. fairly pedestrian medium-strength hop juice with a smooth palate.
