Another great IPA! I've not found one I've yet to enjoy. This is the first I've tried from this brewery and I'll definitely go back for more!

pours a golden copper color with a small white head. the aroma is very nice you can pick up the cascade hops. the taste is very good, you can pick up the hops but it is very well balanced and you can pick up some sweetness of the malt as well. this would be the perfect ipa for being just getting into craft beer because it is not too overpowering. ronaldtheriot (2057) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - DEC 1, 2012
Henry Weinhard’s Woodland Pass IPA has a thick, soapy, cream-colored head and a hazy (which gets more hazy upon swishing the bottle), bubbly, orange appearance. Lacing is quite pronounced. The aroma is of bread, bread crust, and hop oil, and the flavor is sweet, bready, and has a mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Henry Weinhard’s Woodland Pass IPA finishes semi-dry, mellow, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is a very good beer. RJT

Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a beautiful golden amber color with a big billowy two finger off white head. The head fades over a moderate level of time leaving a nice lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The smell is largely of a bready and caramel nature mixed with some aromas of corn sweetness and a light fruit smell. While an IPA there is not a big hop presence with the aroma only having a very light citrus and pine hop smell.
Taste- The taste begins with a chewy breadiness and a lighter caramel sweetness upfront. A hop flavor of a citrus flavor is present from the start which grows stronger till the end. With the citrus growing stronger the caramel fades with some earthy and pine hop flavors later joining the taste. This combination of flavors take the taste to its end where a nicely hopped and smooth bready taste is left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is quite thick and chewy for a 6 % abv beer with a carbonation that is rather lighter. The thicker body combined with the lower carbonation make for a nice mouth coating feel and all the hop and bready flavors able to linger on the tongue.
Overall – I was quite surprised by this brew. It was nice and creamy with a rather good hoppy taste. Not a bad go to and certainly worth a try. Slipstream (2745) - USA - NOV 10, 2012
I remember first trying HW during a visit to Seattle many years ago, in the dawning days of the craft brew movement. I liked it a lot, and wished it was available in the Northeast. Now it looks like HW has been surpassed by a number of other breweries, but it should be remembered that they were one of the earlier participants in the movement. I am surprised this gets a low ranking - it is not bad at all. A mellow and tasty IPA, not very aromatic, lightly herbaceous and piney, and contains a dollop of sugary sweetness. A really good soft IPA.
