Mendocino White Hawk Original IPA: Tannish amber color tending toward yellow. Very hazy, almost completely opaque. Soapy lemony aroma, not much malt in there, the citrus aromas are provided by the hops.

The taste was not dissimilar to the aroma, very citrus/lemony. Interesting that I do not note the hop bitterness, in fact this is like a sweet lemonade rather than an IPA, at least to my palate. Further, the taste is heightened by the creamy smooth mouth feel of this brew, which struck me as somewhat unusual for the style. Odd, and not really a good example of the style, at least to me.

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.
