dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - MAR 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours a weak yellow color. Aroma is faint hops, both floral and pine. Flavor is way weak for an IPA. Nothing really in the aftertaste. No hop bitters. Thin body. Very disappointing.

pours a very pale yellow with a very thin white head. aroma displays some malty sweetness and some citrus and floral hops. flavor is lightly malty and has light grapefruit and tea. very thin watery mouthfeel and a fairly abrupt finish. pretty mild and basic ipa.

The flavor was very mild and not impressive. This is definitely a beginners ipa. There is a bitter finish.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 28, 2009
In Northfield, MA. Copper colour with slight, prickly and white head. Hoppy nose with citrus. Hoppy taste obviously. Sweetish and soapy also. Good consistency. Bitter in the finish. Nice all-around IPA.

webbcreative (111) - , Oklahoma, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Pours Golden color. 1 finger head, that dissipated quickly. Smells wonderfully hoppy and clean. Has a good medium mouthfeel. Has a pretty clean taste too it and has some bitterness, but really not all that bitter, i expected a bit more out of an IPA. I like it, but then again im just now getting into IPAs and im still not loving overly hopped beers. Even with that I thought i would be getting a bit more out of this one...but still has a good flavor, just not too much going on here. I am abit suprised to see the abv on this is 6.5% though, feels much less.

Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle thanks to Drew. Bottle poured to glass. copper in color. Small white head with a fine bead. Cedar and piney notes in the aroma. Not overly hopped or robust. A bit thin and a bit under billed for an IPA

ChainGangGuy (4881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2009 12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia Appearance: Pours a clear, copper body with a thin, white head. Thin, delicate lacing on the way down. Smell: Grassy, citrusy hop scents overlaying a very basic pale maltiness. Taste: Pale malts with a medium sweetness. In succession: citrus, soap, grass. Medium bitterness. Dry, only faintly bitter finish. Redhook simply phones it in with this one. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: As an India Pale Ale, its very basic, very average, but not very memorable.

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Bottle. Pour is fairly light... more of a gold than anything. Head is smallish. Aromas are fairly decent... a bit of the typical American IPA hops mixture... some pine, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is a watery mix of the above with a honey sweetness that takes over for just a second or two as the beer slides across the palate. It doesnt work very well, and fortunately it is short-lived and things quickly finish with a bit of bitter hops. Still, the watery intro and the sweet middle phase are pretty big limitations for this mediocre IPA.

A very nice IPA. Good bang for the buck. Not spectular but far from average. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada IPA. Another nice beer from Red Hook. Aromatic with floral citrus and sweet notes. Unsweetened ice tea along with the usual IPA flavors. Good but not great.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber, little white head. Nothing to write home about.
