COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
White Hawk is a traditional IPA .The IPA recipe is based on the original 1880 brew that was sent to India for the British troops.The advent of India Pale Ale was born of a need to supply beer in the 1800s to British troops in India. This hearty, heavily hopped ale was brewed to endure the rigors of the long voyage from Great Britain.

White Hawk Original IPA was launched in California in early 2002 to meet the demand for a unique India Pale Ale. Consumer response for White Hawk IPA exceeded expectations and it is fast gaining a loyal following both in 6 pack and on draft.

This beer just came out in bottles,8/02.Fairly well hopped. I think an IPA should have more hopps. Has a slight alcohol flavor but is overall a good IPA.I love hopps and this beer could use plenty more in my opinion. I will buy it again.

Disappointing IPA, not a very good example of the IPA style, not enough hops, not very well balanced, very little malty profile, a bit on the bland side

jasonp (1574) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2004 Pours a cloudy copper with a small head. Aroma is a little malty and floral. Taste is kind of harsh; has the grapefruit and hops but is unpleasantly bitter on the back end. Kind of metallic tasting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Not awful, but there are plenty of other IPAs that blow this one away.

Mendocino has some good beer. This isnt up to standards. Amber with foamy white head. Nose is malt and grapefruit/hops, some pine. Medium bodied. Flavor was so-so. Some citrus. Bitter. Unimpressive.

hopdog (11774) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured with a medium yellow color with a very small head. Hoppy piney aroma. Not as bitter/hoppy as other IPAs Ive tasted. Somewhat of a sour aftertaste. Tastes of lemon, pine and citris. Ill pass on this one in the future.

Smells hoppy. Looks cool. Nice head slightly cloudy. Tastes of grapefruit rind. Bitter finish. Looks great, feels great in the mouth, but way too bitter even for the style.

egh, something to wash my dinner down. its got a stale rotten kind of aftertaste that doesnt offend, but i dont like it. its a typical ipa--grapefruit thing, biscuity malt i guess--that seems like it doesnt know how to age after its bottling date.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 9, 2006
This beer has an orange/amber color akin to other IPAs with the signature creamy head. Hoppy like it should be, but lacking the fruit hints that most IPAs are known for. It was a smooth taste, but that was one of the few outstanding qualities.
