2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Really tastes more like a Pale Ale, lacks that hoppy punch that an IPA needs. Drinkable but not what I was looking for here.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at morgan’s american grill in new market. A clean cut IPA with no bells or whistles. needs a bit more hoppy to raise the rating here. Taste of citrus and honey flavors come through.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Bob, Michelle, and mostly my baby Jana for the 12th annual Indiana Microbrewers Festival today! On tap @ the fest. Nose of flowers & perfume, pine & citrus, and resin. The brew is a sparkling pale gold. The mostly lasting tall creamy white head leaves good lace. The beer has good balance and nice depth with high acidity. The medium creamy body is lively, the finish feels astringent. I’m glad I found this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper colored with a tangy pine aroma. Small, quarter-inch head, dissipates rapidly. A little lace on the glass. Looks and smells good enough. Flavor profile is mostly mild hops with a small amount of malts in the end. Goes down easy enough. A decent IPA. I like the 6.5% alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In the bottle from Beertopia. Pours dark gold with a medium off white head. Mild pine aroma. Slight bisquit dough flavor at first that mellows to a mild buttery bitterness. Very quick finish for an IPA. Super smooth and drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle 060607. My bottle says brewery in Portsmouth, NH not woodinville, Washington. Nice amber pour, hazy, big foamy head heavy lacing. Aroma is tops, very inviting citrus bouquet. Strong hops presence but not overboard. Light to medium bodied, very bitter hops burst then citrusy orange zest flavor. Very dry. Great aroma had me excited but pretty much an average IPA at best.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad ipa, and probably Redhook’s best product. Light hops in the aroma and light in the flavor. Enough to be recognizable as an ipa, but far too light overall. Some malt sweetness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, mild Cascade hops, and a light pineyness. Taste is light graininess, earthy and lightly citric hops. Mouthfeel is lightly resinous with lively carbonation. Drinkable, but a pretty underwhelming IPA.
