2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured a hazy golden yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet carmel with just a hint of citrus. Palate is a bit to crisp for an IPA. Flavor of sweet carmel with a bitter finish. Not at all impressive!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Brother Tuckers. A nice amber pour with a pretty big white head with lots of lacing. Typcial IPA aromas of citrus, pine and malt. Flavor was smooth but pretty light on the hops. A good beer, but not great by any stretch.

The white hawk was on my wish list, so thank you Tom/After4ever for this one. Itís warm-golden with a huge, white and creamy head. The aroma is nicely hopped with notes of grass, resin and fruit. The flavour is slightly sweet and has a nice caramel foundation, notes of fruit, a lot of citrus, a bit of resin, a nice bitterness and itís nicely balanced. Itís a tasty brew, that needs "the little extra" to become more than just that. 2022
