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.

Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2006
A hazy orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of both hops and flowers. The flavor is sweet and very dry with light notes of pine, leading to a bitter end. A boring IPA.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
(Bottle 35,5 cl) The labels credits this to Mendocino Brewing in Saratoga Springs, NY. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head leaving laces. Fresh and fruity aroma - grapefruit. Medium body, lightly sweet malt base is overpowered by a distinct, bitter finish. A rather brutal and one-dimensional bitterness without much refinement. 200606

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2005
Bottled. Pale amber, rich head. Rich grapefruity hop aroma. Sweet and full bodied with clean, straightforward malt character and an abundance of hops that dominates every aspect of this beer. The bitterness is so big it turns almost inky. Flavourful, but bold and not overly complex example of the style.

yngwie (13345) - 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

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 Hazy amber. Fresh orangey, woodsy aroma. Rich, sustained bitterness. Lemony, grapefruity middle. Dry and richly hoppy finish. Solid.
