4/5 rDev +19.4%
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!!!..

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Jan. 4, 2014
Consumed: Jan. 11, 2014
Poured a caramel orange semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki white head. Tons of layered foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention on the top all the way down.
First smells reminded me of a stronger pilsner. Overall got corn, lemon wheat grass, spruce hops, lemon rind and some pine. By the end was thinking of a stronger regular Blue Moon. Also light floral notes.
The taste was similar to the nose. Got lots of wheat, grass and corn, but also honey, sharp grapefruit rind and lots of bitterness. Not too solid.
Light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish.
Just an average IPA. Nothing exceptional at all.
