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.

Clear yellow brew under average white head. Decent lacing.

I like the smell - piney hops and honey. Could use a stronger smell though, just a touch too faint.

Taste is nice too, although I bet the hop-heads dont like it. This IPA is balanced with smooth malty flavor. I taste honey, bread, piney flavors.

Mouthfeel is smooth and easy-to-drink. Another good session beer by Red Hook. I like balanced IPAs and this is one.

Pours a straw yellow with a healthy white head that had decent retention.

Smells of citrus backed by a slight floral bouquet.

Taste was hop forward with citrus leaning towards grapefruit. The flavor started out well, but didn't lead anywhere exciting - just sort of trailed off towards bland. A decent beer, but nothing exciting.

12 oz. ----> 16.9 oz glass

A: Clear dark yellow with a tinge of orange. Thick white head dissipates into rocky, yet thinner head. Lots of visible carbonation.

S: Dank, grapefruit hops and a bit of pine.

T: Pine and grapefruit, bit of malt, various spices, metallic aftertaste. This beer also has quite a large marijuana profile...one of the more prolific ones I've had in awhile.

M: Pretty good. Oily and slick.

O: This beer gets graded a bit too harshly, in my opinion. It's not amazing, but it isn't bad. I guess people grade this harshly because it isn't a hop-bomb? If you're after a marijuana taste in an IPA, this one would suffice.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A- Light amber color with a good two finger head. Head retention was suprisingly low. Decent looking beer though.

S-Smell of hops and pines. Good smelling beer.

T-Tastes like pines and a bitter hops. Really not that bad. Not as hoppy as most IPAs.

M-Good carbonation and light to medium body. Kind of pale for an IPA but goes down smooth.

O-Overall this is a good beer. Definitely not the Best IPA I have had but still a good beer. With all the better IPAs out there I will not likely buy this one again though.

Friend got me a mixpack. just under 3 months old which is good.

A: Orange cloudy, medium white head. Minimal lacing.

S: Pine, Grapefruit rind, maybe some pineapple. A little bit of grass. For a few months old decent aroma.

T: A little burst of grapefruit, pine and spicey grass. A bit of honey/caramel maltiness. Some bitterness but a bit underwhelming for american IPAs. Pretty clean finish, minimal yeast.

M: High Carbonation, a tad thin. Sessionable.

O: Better than harpoon IMO, less malt. Could use more hops. Nothing worth seeking out but i'll take one if offered. I dig the stubby bottles.

Not overly hoppy like most American IPAs are these days. More smooth like a traditional IPA with just the correct amount of hops. Different bottle seemed a bit awkward at first, but it really didn't matter to the taste and feel of the smokey amber liquid. Overall a very nice beer that I was surprised to find in Tampa. I'll search this one out again or just wait until my next trip to Seattle. I recommend it. I feel the previous reviews are too harsh by those who think more hops are better to no end. Simply not true. It is a great American fallacy.
