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 1800ís 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.

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2007
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

Bottle. Orange/amber color, creamy offwhite head. Fruity aroma from pine apples and green apples, some grassy hop notes. Hoppy flavor, grass and fruits. Fruity finish with a decent bitterness.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2005
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!

BeerandBlues2 (9358) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours sparkling dark yellow with an average, frothy, white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (cereal, grain, meal), heavy hops (flowers, grass, pine, spruce), average yeast (sweat) with notes of grape and apple. Medium bodied, sticky texture, lively carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and bitterness.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Bottle @ home. Gusher though it doesnít smell of an infection. Hazy, yellow orange appearance with a huge cream colored head. Sweet floral hoppy, honey, potpourri aroma. Somewhat bready, lightly toasty, a touch fruity, a little tangy, floral flavor. I really didnít like this one.

daknole (8856) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2008
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.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2003
Clear, deep golden brew with a white, large, rocky head. Mostly lasting with spunky lacework. The nose contains honey, evergreen, black pepper, whole grain rice and hearty white bread. Warmly bitter from start to finish. Numbing and pleasant experience. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish!

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured with a medium yellow color with a very small head. Hoppy piney aroma. Not as bitter/hoppy as other IPAs Iíve tasted. Somewhat of a sour aftertaste. Tastes of lemon, pine and citris. Iíll pass on this one in the future.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2004
Bottled. Very hoppy aroma to this golden/copper coloured beer with a nice white head. Taste is very hoppy with lots of grapefruit notes. Not like some American IPAs Iíve had recently in that itís not a thick beer - this is more European. Very nice.
