Red Hook IPA is a good example of an American IPA. It’s golden straw in colour, nicely carbonated, but lacking a little in head and lacing. However, the smell is great, with strong citrus (grapefruit) hops aromas and fair bit of pine as well. The taste is almost completely towards the bitter end of the spectrum with very little balance, but honestly that’s a quality that I like in IPAs. It’s very bitter. It’s also very dry. Overall, this is a pretty good American IPA. I would definitely buy this again.

Long hammer is a great beginners IPA. Mellow piney citrus hop. A bit more bite than a session beer. Easy to drink for the masses. Well built beer in the northwest with good ingredients. Now only if the would mass produce Big Ballard Imperial. That is a wonderful imperial IPA.

This is my first IPA and I have to say, not a great impression has been made on me. I like the look and it had a hearty smell too it, like others said sort of a piney-ness to it. The taste however was very bitter, I don't feel that I'm experienced enough in the IPA category to properly judge, HOWEVER, the bitterness and aftertaste for me was not something I thoroughly enjoyed. I'll continue trying out various ipa's and rewrite a review if I feel I didn't do this one justice but I will say they put enough of a alcohol percentage in to it so that I didn't completely waste my money away!
