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.

750 ml bomber into Duvel glass

Appearance: clear golden orange with 2 finger bubbly white head, lots of lacing

Smell: citrusy, grapefruit, lots of floral action, lemon, hay

Taste: It has an initial hint of citrus and grapefruit, but it is immediately replaced by a corny, bready dull palate, which fades into a sharp lingering bitterness. The nose indicated a lot more flavor, but it really is the corn/bread taste that dominates the palate, with a dry bitterness that doesn't really please. You can taste the adjunct macro in it, which is sad because I didn't rated this not initially knowing Red Hook was owned by InBev (which makes sense why I see this at every gas station).

Mouthfeel: High carbonation but rather thin bodied

Overall: An alright IPA, better than the rating may indicate, especially for the price, but nothing I would seek out. It was about $2.50, otherwise I would not have given it much look. Not to be biased or discriminate, as before I knew Red Hook was owned by Anheuser-Busch/InBev, I thought I tasted a hint of corn taste. I bet this was even better before they sold out, but i'm not gonna go there.

Nice refreshing IPA, not too bitter with a long lasting malty taste

Its the kind of beer I would drink a lot of if it wasn't quite so strong, but I drink a lot of it anyways...

Bottle in the picture is not the same as the bottle imported to Ireland.

Nice all round IPA
