Availability: Year-round

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.

3.53/5  rDev +8.3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - golden in color. One inch head which dissipates in about 2 minutes. Some lacing.

Smell - grapefruit. Other sweet scents but nothing overpowering.

Taste - grapefruit, lemon, and other sweet hops. Somewhat coppery or metallic

Mouthfeel - a little syrupy but overall very smooth

Overall - not a bad little beer. A little weak on the hops for an ipa but overall an above average ipa offering from Red Hook.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

22 oz poured into Terrible Beauty pint glass.

pours a light tea color into a light, crisp amber. head disipates rather quickly, slippery lacing rather weak.

hops smell super pear-y. not in a dense way, purely aromatic. but it's definitely there.

initial taste is rather bland and flat. hops taste stale or something. not too bad, but certainly not the greatest.

aftertaste is nothing to write home about. mouthfeel is sticky and dry to an eventually wet and tangy. sort of odd.

had this beer once at bumbershoot or a concert somewhere. after not enjoy an esb, i swore to avoid red hook. has prevailed my year in washington, but today i got gas on the way home and they had budweiser, steel reserve, rainier, and red hook ipa. should have got the rainier.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Ap - clear amber color slight head that doesn't last long

Ar - Pine notes as well as some malty notes.

T - Some bitterness and malt characteristics. Easy to drink.

M - about right for the style. Easy on the tongue.

O - descent beer that i don't believe will win any awards but definitely a drinkable everyday beer. And at only $18.00 in the Philadelphia market it will not break the bank. I will definitely be drinking this beer again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams Boston Lager glass. Taken from a Redhook mixed twelve pack.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden color. It has a medium-sized, fizzy head that dissipates quickly and leaves some modest lacing.

Smell: Has a piney, grassy hop aroma backed by some slightly sweet maltiness.

Taste: Has a bitter, grassy hoppiness to it. Has a crisp, malty finish.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and light-bodied.

Overall: A fairly standard IPA. Nothing special, but drinkable and generally unoffensive.

Another beer from the infamous woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of piney hops, a touch of citrus. Taste is kind of mild, some bitterness, a bit of pine and a touch of malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is easy drinking but kind of light for the style.

3.6/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

a murky orange-yellow pour with 1/2" of head which disappeared immediately. smells of citrus grapefruit, wet grass, very earthy. the taste is a toasted like bitterness up front followed by a tree sap/piney bitterness, slight hint of sweetness coming from the malt and a citrus finish. the body leaves much to be desired - a very watery medium body with low carbonation.

as far as smell and taste this beer is great, however - everything else is very sub-par at best, which makes this ipa a poor contender considering the thousand others i could be drinking. my first red hook beer and i have to say, aside from the nice bottle design, i'm not impressed at all.
