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.

Meh... Ive had Mendos Winter Imperial and thought it was OK, but this White Hawk is pedestrian at best. 12oz bottle poured like crap, tons of head no matter what i did. The excessive foam took away from the aroma, the palate shot was average, as was the taste...which was flat and without character. Not a bad lookin beer, but probab,y wont be buying it again wheb there are so many quality IPAs out there to occupy my classy ass palate.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s. Pours hazy copper, with a big white head, not much arom, flavor is pretty boring, malt and bitter hops. below average IPA, i must add that beer from trader joes is old a lot of times, also the don’t refrigerate, so this might be a lot better from somewhere else.

Bottle. Pours orange/copper. A decent but not notable IPA with a lot of hops and bitter citrus but not really that complex. The alcohol is hidden decently.

A good solid IPA. I like this beer. It has a nice smooth initial taste, and you get a nice piney finish from the hops. I wish it was bit more aggressively hopped with a more citrius nose - but, this is a good solid IPA. Well worth the price, as it is a bit more reasonably priced than some other craft IPAs. I recommend it.

Banana malts ala New Belgium Abbey. Sweet, low activity, low complexity. Not bad, not great. Buy Deschutes Quail Springs IPA instead.

Moderately hazy, light golden orange. Nice thick white head. Nose is light, dominated by citrus, both flesh and rind, with a whiff of soap as well. Palate begins quite watery, but then the flavor comes. Quite surprisingly, that flavor is sweet malt! Very little hops at all on the palate, incredibly. Wow, not like any other IPA I know, for sure. Finish is ever so slightly bitter and fairly short. I can see why this has been reviewed rather poorly; it promises at least a smidgen of hops on the nose, but then doesnít deliver in the mouth. DO NOT buy this expecting a true West Coast IPA experience. Nonetheless, itís a pleasant enough drink. The short finish and lack of bitterness would make it a decent session candidate.

I thought it was a decent session beer. The hops were sharper than I remember in the Red Hawk, but it didnt overwhelm my senses.

650 ml. (7.0% abv) Appearance looks like a pale ale; head is okay, leaves some sticky lacing. Taste is hops, citrus, pine, caramel, and grapefruit. Palate is low carbonation, semi-oily texture, lively mouthfeel, and a hop and pine aftertaste. Pretty good stuff.
