I enjoy Red Hook beers and this IPA is no exception. Nice golden color; not as hoppy as I would want in an IPA; mild bitter taste. I will definitely drink more, though.

Golden color. Nice floral aroma. A little weak bodied and not too exciting. Perhaps a little too light, but a fairly goo IPA nonetheless.

It pours with a nice orange to amber color with a light creamy head. However, the use of the IPA label is only that. Its aroma and taste were small on the hops let alone close to the expectations one would have for a beer labeled as an IPA. It tasted more like a typically hopped ale.

Nothing really wrong with this version of IPA. On tap at the brewery itís dandy. I buy it in bottles when on sale and enjoy it thoroughly.

Gold with a reddish hue. Floral, hop smell. Spring herbal flavor as it first hits the palate and then turning to a bitter hop flavor but not as hoppy as an IPA should be IMHO. Light and a bit watery with a dry after taste. Overall a very average IPA without much character.

Ratings might be a bit off, I drank this with a very spicy stew. The flavor was good, but lacked the mouth feel some better pale ales have.

white head, golden yellow, clear, hoppy, wheat flavor. Good for a spring day.

If this was the last beer on Earth I would very much enjoy drinking it. However, since there are other brews out there I donít think Iíll be paying for this one again. Versus Bud and Coors and other ^%^&, I reach for the Red Hook. Hope this will coax Americans into the finer IPAs but as a stand alone I was not impressed. Some mild skunkiness is detedtable and it does not have the bouqet that I expect from a titled IPA.

12 oz. bottle. aroma of piney hops and a mild caramel malt. excellent IPA. nicely priced at 9.99 a 12 pack, one of the more affordable mircos
