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.

Appearance: Orange amber with a very pretty layer of white foam. Lacing is also very good. Crisp carbonation.

Smell: Brown sugar, almost with a Belgian candy note to it. Great balance of pine and grapefruit.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sour lemon/orange followed by a malty pine backbone. Great balance. Mouthfeel is very clean with a sudsy finish.

Overall Drinkability: Great overall IPA.

Mendocino White Hawk is an excellent IPA.. The aroma fills the nostrils with the sweet Juniper crispness... A tease.. A perfect IPA that fills the drinkers appreciation of perfection that is India.. Hops... Beauty... Slight pine .. Slight Cypress.. Total Perfection..
Appearance is creamy goodness... Smell is a treat to the senses.. Taste.. A slight bitterness mixed with sweet hops.. Juniper balancing a perfection borne of the California coast.. This is a Great IPA.. and Mendocino Brewing has hit the target in spades.. Had it been a card hand.. A Royal Flush of perfection!!!..
