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.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2007
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.

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.

Bottle that Daniel felt like trying. Pours out an orange color with a thin white head. Smell is very light citrus and not much else. Taste is also kinda light and weak grass and citrus. The hops are there but certainly nothing insane. This beer is just OK.

Draft at Phillips Crab House in Ocean City, MD. Description on the bottle is "a beer built to stand the test of time" - Huh. Iím not really catching that spirit with this beer. A sub-par IPA in my opinion. Nothing notable with this brew at all. PASS
