3.15/5  rDev -6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12oz bottle at 48F.

A - Golden apricot in color with a sudsy head and good retention. Initially good lacing, but it quickly faded after a second pour.

S - Mostly floral hops. Some citrus and fruit there as well. Backed up by sweet malts.

T - Missing the sweet malts now, this is surely a traditional west coast IPA. Lots of hops, but mostly getting a floral/grassy flavor. Not much citrus at all, and the malts just don't even show up. Fairly bitter right from the get go and in aftertaste, with something off tasting as well. One dimensional.

M - Medium bodied, slightly high carbonation. Somewhat syrupy.

D - Nice but a bit monotonous in flavor, and there are many IPAs out there that are considerably better.

I like the White Hawk...its a decent IPA....probably more English style than American style....at least to me. The beer poured a hazy copper that has a nice head and is leaving a lace. The scent carries a fresh bittering hop that is quite nice. The taste is decently balanced...maybe a bit more malty than others....but still finishes bitter. The mouthfeel is medium in body with good carbonation. Overall the White Hawk is easy drinking....and I would try this again....nice job.
