2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Quite possibly the worst IPA that’s ever been my experience to drink. Very little hoppiness or citrus flavor or anything that I’ve come to know and love from the style. This just is not good at all.

One of my first forays into the wonderful world of IPAs, but just now getting around to rating it. Ok aroma with some citrus notes. Light orange with a thin off-white head. Flavor starts off malty but gives way to a fairly bitter finished. Decent balance, but a but too much hop in the finish for me. All in all, a good beginner micro, but there is certainly better out there.

On tap. Really surprised this isn’t rated higher, I have had much worse IPAs that had much more favorable ratings. Gold in color that was served with no head. Faint smell of grass and citrus. Taste of Pine, citrus, and caramel. One of the most balanced IPAs I have had in recent memory. Finishes medium dry. Decent and sessionable.

Pours a bright golden body with lingering white head. Smells of citrus soap, almost stale. Flavor is weak for an IPA, watered down taste is still very drinkable. Leaves the palate with a dry bitter taste. Overall a decent attempt from Redhook.

Weak IPA but a good drinker. Hops dont stay around just get a malty essence in the finish. flowers/fruit.

Draught. Nothing spectacular to note here. Great, dry, hoppy IPA. I’m addicted to hops and this hit the spot for me just fine. A little dry on the finish, very drinkable.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2015
Aug, 2008 GBBF, Trade Day,. Gravity cask. Very flowery, very fragrant. Bags of fresh, fruity flavour. Very nice. [3.4]
Jan, 2015 350ml dark bottle, filtered. £2.65 from Beers & Bottle, Southampton. 6.2% Ginger coloured. Zesty hops - not aggressive. Artificial wood smoke flavour. Clean, flat malt. No character, but holds the hop zest well, which is what these hop beers are all about. For a hop forward beer, this is quite acceptable to me - I just wish the malt was a bit more interesting. Where’s the fucking skill in chucking hops into the mix? The real skill is in fermenting the malt. [2.8]

12oz. Pour is very light amber with thin fizzy head. Aroma... where is it??? Flavor is terrible. No hop presence at all. This should be a CBA(Corn Bomb Ale) not an IPA. I heard good things about this one and nope, LIES. Stay away from this shit. I could barely choke this one down.

On tap. Pours golden orange with a foamy white head leaving a light lace. Slightly citrus hop smell with a little bit of earthy grain/pine. Sweet malt dominated. Taste is similar to the aroma with a touch of honey and a lighter body. Really, just an average beer with a tad bit of hop bitterness that beats having a light beer for happy hour.
