Bottle, bright orange pour with thin white foam, aroma of metallic malty pine, flavors
of some bitter grapefruit rind and weak malt mar (5436) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Nice amber pour with a thick cream colored head. Nose is bitter hops, very fresh florals, and pine. Not bad on the palate, flavor is faint bitter hops, florals, and a lineup finish. As it warms it gets really bitter. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 2, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear light amber with a big rocky beige head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of biscuits, light herbal, citrus and floral hops and lighter caramel. Mostly sweet English malt flavors with a smooth mild bitterness, not much alcohol in the taste but there is a slightly metallic finish. Medium body, mild carbonation and a slightly watery mouth feel. Pretty good for Redhook, but tasted more like a strong ESB to me. bhensonb (15621) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 1, 2010
Bmber from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a foamy 4 finger off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit, resin and sweet caramel. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. It’s got grapefruit, resin and malt for flavor. It’s pretty hoppy - but not harshly so. Finishes tasty. Good drink. cstuartj (1020) - Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Deep brownish yellow color, small to no head, nice lacing. Good hoppy nose. Clean bitter taste and lingering dry finish.

A pretty standard imperial IPA. Good hop flavors and aromas, lower alcohol than some and it’s much harder to taste the alcohol here than in many beers with its abv. Slightly wattery for an iIPA. portableparty (2379) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2010
Bomber to snifter. Pour is copper amber color with a tight froathy head. Aroma is faint sour hops. Taste bitter hops upfront and finishs sour and hot. Palate is smooth and crisp then finishes chaulky dry. I would not recomend this one for $7.00 bucks, many others that are worth the money. Another Red Hook that is not worth talking about. yemenmocha (659) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2010
Pours a luminous pale orange to golden color with white head that is alright. Nose is very, very faint and "clean" with some light citrus, maybe grapefruit especially, and light pine. On the palate the body is extremely light and overall it is tough to get past how WATERY this beer is. Flavor wise, once you’re finished grumbling over the wateryness, there is some sweet malty flavors balanced by a tangy/fruity hop component. Light pine again. Finish has a somewhat sickly sweet element going on. Ratman197 (15220) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a lasting ivory head. Aromas of biscuit, earthiness, pine and light citrus. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, light pine and light grapefruit rind with a smooth dry lingering moderatly bitter earthy finish. Good malt base, but needs better use of hops.

22oz bottle from Windy City Liquors, I think. Up at Lake Jennings just outside of San Diego for a weekend of car camping with my fam and my brother’s fam. Refrteshing and crisp. Strong head and floral nose. Good clean smack finish. I do enjoy me some IIPAs.
