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.

This beer just came out in bottles,8/02.Fairly well hopped. I think an IPA should have more hopps. Has a slight alcohol flavor but is overall a good IPA.I love hopps and this beer could use plenty more in my opinion. I will buy it again.

Disappointing IPA, not a very good example of the IPA style, not enough hops, not very well balanced, very little malty profile, a bit on the bland side

Mendocino has some good beer. This isnít up to standards. Amber with foamy white head. Nose is malt and grapefruit/hops, some pine. Medium bodied. Flavor was so-so. Some citrus. Bitter. Unimpressive.

This beer has an orange/amber color akin to other IPAs with the signature creamy head. Hoppy like it should be, but lacking the fruit hints that most IPAs are known for. It was a smooth taste, but that was one of the few outstanding qualities.

Donít like. I am an IPA guy, this is not a very good one. Way too light on hops, and that is like rule #1 of things NOT TO DO when brewing an IPA.

Firstly, with their Imperial IPA being so good, Iím not sure why their normal IPA would be so distant from that, but it is. This golden, fizzy headed ale has a very quick nose with just a light touch of fruit and hops. The body is just as quick with no depth, dry and bitter. Too bad.

Not bad. Pours cloudy amber, sea foam head. Good lacing. Light mouthfeel, smooth hop bitterness because of the malty imbalance. No way to tell how fresh the bottle is so maybe it was towards end of shelf life. Otherwise I would compare it to the Sam Smith IPA.
