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.

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.

I was fairly underwhelmed by this beer. The hop presence in this IPA is minimal in both the taste and smell. Its not a bad beer overall but it is in my mind a poor example of an AIPA.

It pours a hazy light yellow with a white head.

If you want a nice slightly hoppy beer that is easy drinking I would recommend this. If you're looking for a nice hoppy IPA look elsewhere.

This beer did pair with my dinner very nicely because it had enough flavor to through the pork chops but didn't overpower anything. I believe that as a food pairing beer this is actually and excellent choice.

Thanks Bob for the beer.

A: Poured from a bottle to glass and nice straw color with a decent amount of foam.

S: Aroma is a malty goodness with a slightly hopped scent to it.

T: Taste is of malts and then a slight hop earthy and a bit of floral to it nice balance.

M: Mouthfeel is a medium body with nice carbonation to it.

O: Overall a good drinkable beer with a little something extra for the effort. not an everyday drinker but wouldn't it be great to have every day.

Pours a clear straw yellow with ample white head, but poor retention. Aroma is floral and citrus hop, but more on par with a pale ale rather than an IPA. Taste follows with clean bitterness and floral and citrus hop. Mouthfeel is thin, but crisp and clean. Good drinker, perfect for washing down a bag of chips or something like that, but not something I would drink if I wanted to experience an IPA, because this is more like a slightly hoppy blond ale.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a pint glass.
A-Nice golden color. Very appealing.

S-Mild citrus and grapefruity aroma.

T-Tastes more like a mild pale ale compared to other IPAs I've had. In fact, I remember this being a little more on the bitter side but not overwhelming.

M-Light, not too watery, not too heavy at all.

O-This was the first IPA I drank-a few years back-and it's what made me fall in love with this particular style, but for some reason I remember it being 6.7% ABV, and it had a stronger hop flavor. It's very drinkable, but I'm disappointed.

Poured into a tulip from a bomber. 2-finger off-white head that dissipated quickly. Little lacing. The beer is pretty, filtered and traditional-looking.

Citrusy hops in the nose, lemon tartness, boozy atringency. Nice.

Flat. Vacant, watery, not particularly hoppy or malty. Clean, but absent of a lot of flavor.

We've all had this IPA a dozen times before. It's not bad, but it doesn't stand out in any way.
