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.

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.

A foul west coast IPA. Thin in body no sign of any type of west coast hops. Just awful.

Bottle 355ml @ Geokkjer
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, citrus, grape and orange. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long caramel and fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

daknole (10848) - 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 (10563) - 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!

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.

Maria (10214) - 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

rosenbergh (10206) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2015
22 oz bottle. (Food Pantry) Honolulu, HI.
Hazy golden color with a small off-white head. Sweet dark fruity hops, mild sugary sweetness, prunes, some unfreshness and maltiness in the aroma. The flavor is harsh herbal hops, moderate bitterness, unfreshness and dryish maltiness.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - DEC 31, 2013
355mL thanks to Dedicatedtofun! Clear orange, nice white webby lacing. Nose is sweet artificial orange, flashes of odd chemical. Taste is harsh stomach acid, eating a penny. Oh gross. It takes skill to make beer taste this badly.
