3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I got this brew on tap at a bar in Peoria. I actually bought two pints. It had a nice golden yellow color w/ good lacing. Aroma was fresh and hoppy w/ balanced malts. Full nectar with a creamy texture. Flavors are textbook yet not complex. The finish was bittered perfectly. A good brew indeed. I was impressed for this brand.

A decent beer from Red Hook? Havenít had one of those for a few years! Nothing great about this beer, it looks like lager, smells like a macro, but the hops save it from the bin. Truly the only thing worth buying from my local SuperGroceryMart... cheap too.

appearance is much like a lager. golden but clear with some creamy white head. some age-y funk to it, with a little dust, corn, lots of hops (but surprisingly not too bitter). am wondering though why its a long hammer versus a hammer? pretty thin and watery

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 Clean and crisp ipa with a simple finish and good hop content. Nothing special but not a bust, easily drinkable.

Bottle. Nice amber. Oh it is supposed to be an IPA? Well, I guess they forgot to add the hops in the process. This one is malty, slightly sweet but certainly has no floral or citrus components. Misses the mark as an IPA or even a Pale Ale.

Bottle. Pours a hazy, yellow body with a small white head with nice lacing. Grassy light hoppy aroma. Light mouthfeel. Weaker bitter hoppy flavor. Some nice spices. Pretty decent beer, not really as an IPA.

Bitter, grassy, a little bit spicy, sweet malt and not enough hops for an new American IPA. There is nothing wrong with this beer, but I need more hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quality offering from Redhook, relaxed mild IPA with enough hop presence to satisfy. Pleasant hop aroma, strong but not overdone. Light copper color with an inch thick head and layers of sticky lacing. Medium bitterness on the palate, overall mouthfeel is a touch too light for my liking. The flavor isnít anything off the charts, but like most standard IPAís it is well balanced and the hops are allowed to compliment a solid malt content instead of fighting with one another. I wouldnít be able to distinguish this one from many of the countless others, but itís still enjoyable.

$6.99 for a six pack at the navy base. Floral hop aroma. Mild hop and sweet pale malt flavor. Mild but typical IPA aromas and flavors. Not much difference between this one and the Redhook IPA. This one is 6.5% abv and the regular IPA is 6.0% This would be excellent if it were $5 a six pack. At that price I would drink a lot of it as I did the regular IPA until the price went up. I see that Redhook has gone up on all their prices. Itís a decent average IPA, but not worth craft brew prices. 217 ratings before me and nobody has sent in a photo! Iíll take care of that chore.
