Meh, it’s okay. Nothing special, here, and many more worthy IPAs are easily acquired.

bottled. Hazy pale orange (piss) colored ale. Nose of lite grass w/ alcohol. The taste here is slightly off-putting w/ that grassy thing going on thru the end. The hops never bite & are far from crisp. Watery. A tad stronger pale ale that is close to being drinkable. Redhook flops again.

Sampled in San Diego on tap at the Blarney Stone. A nice IPA with a strong hoppy base with smooth palate and good drinkability.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Yellow with a soapy white head. Citrusy aroma of oranges and grapefruit doesn’t make me expect much in the way of malt qualities in the flavor. As expected, hops bitterness and not much else in the flavor. Somewhat acidic, slighly on the light bodied side for what I like in an IPA.

This is an abomination of an attempt at a ipa. I thought this was a bottle of bud when i first tried it. After some colorful banter with friends, i realized that Budweiser owns red hook. sad.

Poured a bronze-copper clear body with a small white head. Decent hops in the nose. But again, a metallic infected flavor and unenjoyable finish. I’ve tried this beer before and thought it was better.

I should have known better than to pick up a six of this since I don’t care for the other Redhook beers, including their other IPA. I was thinking that maybe they realized their IPA was crappy and wanted to give it another shot. They somehow managed to do worse. This is an abysmal IPA. I will be pouring the other 5 down the drain. Life’s too short to drink lousy beer.

Strong hoppy flavor, good lingering after taste though. Second one was definitely better.

Very bitter, paper napkin, astringent. Bottom line...worst IPA I have ever had. And also the only Red Hook beer I have ever absolutely disliked. Must have been an apprentice’s project.

Cask, GBBF 2007. Cloudy gold, no head. Some floral hop and yeast in the nose of this. Mouth is hoppy floral and a touch of sweetness. Finishes bittersweet.
