Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Musky on 01-10-2007

The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

Redhook IPA poured a golden yellow with a small white head from a brown twelve ounce bottle. Smell is okay, not really hoppy. I like the taste, but it is not to style. I find the taste fairly enjoyable, a little sweet toward the end, some citrus, hoppy bitterness definitely present. I wouldn't drink it everyday, but I don't think it's bad.

I’m giving this beer a solid 3.5, mainly because it holds a special place in my home and heart. It’s nothing particularly noteworthy, with a so-so appearance, a decent piney-citrusy aroma, and a taste that lacks the depth and character of a higher-caliber IPA. However, since I can get it readily at my local Rite-Aid for about a buck a bottle, it’s usually in my fridge - and I’m a-ok with that.

This IPA pours out as a nice looking copperish gold color, the head is pretty good looking. The lacing is nice and thick for a typical ipa. The smell is hoppy and has a good malt aroma too. The taste has a pretty good bitterness to it. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Overall the beer has pretty good quality from start to finish. I enjoyed this.

A good pour produced a 1/2-finger, beige, frothy head that was gone in a flash. The ale was orange-amber and clouded with a SERIOUS load of floaties (which I don't object to) and also some darker, larger debris particles (which sorta concerned me). The smell was not much, slightly hoppy and a little peppery with some biscuity aroma.

The taste was weak on any true hop flavor. Very ordinary, no real hop flavor notes to report. There was a pleasant bitter finish, but the bittering was generic rather that trying to produce any genuine hop character. The malts were ordinary as well. The mouthfeel was undistinguished, not watery, but not hearty either. A little bit of malt-stickiness to the finish.

Dinkability was diminished by the total ordinariness of this, the overall lack of flavor intensity. Went down OK, but it's almost a case of why bother to drink the stuff? I will pass on this one in future, w/ great disappointment.
