Wow, what a funny beer. It tasted like soap. Not really an IPA, but what would you expect from Red Hook. Nothing special.

A surprisingly good IPA from Red Hook. Very nice hoppiness, probably dry-hopped, balanced with malt. Flavors are crisp and slightly citrusy. A very good IPA for hop lovers.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
1/7/08 on draft at Yard House. Slightly skunky with very little hop flavor. Alcohol not well hidden and beer not well balanced. One of the weaker IPAs I’ve tried.

Pours clear with a dark yellow color. Foamy off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very floral, hoppy aroma. Crisp, clean pine-tree flavor. I generally don’t like IPA’s, but this one is good. A little on the sweet side, common with Redhooks brews. Clean palate, smooth. This beer is good enough that it may change my opinion of IPA’s.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2008 another run of the mill IPA. certainly not bad and carries all the characteristics of an IPA but in average amounts to average extents. certainly a nice, reasonably priced session beer from a reputable brewer. maybe the cool name and cool label is worth something? nothing wrong with this brew, but a bit too uncomplicated for my tastes.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
light gold colour with a thick white head.
Aroma is grapefruit and floral initially, then a malty background. Flavour is hoppy at first but balances well with a mellow malt and clean finish. Very drinkable with alc. blended well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2009 Pretty simple for an IPA, but highly drinkable. Definitely my favorite thing that I have had from Redhook. Mostly piney hop taste, but at 6.5% alcohol, there is some malt as well. Lighlty bitter finish. Medium bodied.

Orange/bronze color with a beige head. Mild floral and piney hop aroma. Flavor of citrus hops and some malt. Finish is some what hoppy. Above average.
