Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Very light yellow gold color(almost seems too light for a IPA. Head is weak, lacing is pretty decent. I like Redhook, but it seems that most of the reviews I give them ate similar. Although, the hops bitterness, pine and citrus comes through, overall, everything seems weak and watered down. A little disappointing.

From a 12oz bottle left over in my cooler from a late-summer party... Never did try it back then... Here goes, eh?

Color is a slightly muted golden, with a bit of cloudiness, fine particulate, and minimal carbo. Head is fine, creamy and bright white, lasting a short while with ok lacing. Smelss a bit fruity, with a touch of apricot followed by some rindy grapefruit. Body is almost medium, and it has a fair amount of prickle on the tongue.

Unlike the nose, there's little in the way of sweetness in the flavor. It does have a bit of crackery malt, but nothing more in that regard. What it does have is bitterness; it's quite dry, puckery and rindy, with some grapefruit and lemon-peel present. Has little in the way of complexity or "oomph". A very run of the mill IPA.... Prosit!!

I feel like this beer has come a long way over the past 10 years. On draft at Burton's in Nashua NH. Bright, clean, tasty IPA. It's not going to rock your world, but it's rock solid.
