3.64/5  rDev +18.6%

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance- The beer pours a beautiful golden amber color with a big billowy two finger off white head. The head fades over a moderate level of time leaving a nice lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The smell is largely of a bready and caramel nature mixed with some aromas of corn sweetness and a light fruit smell. While an IPA there is not a big hop presence with the aroma only having a very light citrus and pine hop smell.

Taste- The taste begins with a chewy breadiness and a lighter caramel sweetness upfront. A hop flavor of a citrus flavor is present from the start which grows stronger till the end. With the citrus growing stronger the caramel fades with some earthy and pine hop flavors later joining the taste. This combination of flavors take the taste to its end where a nicely hopped and smooth bready taste is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel-The body of the brew is quite thick and chewy for a 6 % abv beer with a carbonation that is rather lighter. The thicker body combined with the lower carbonation make for a nice mouth coating feel and all the hop and bready flavors able to linger on the tongue.

Overall – I was quite surprised by this brew. It was nice and creamy with a rather good hoppy taste. Not a bad go to and certainly worth a try.

3.08/5  rDev +0.3%

Had on tap at TBones--Plymouth--served into a pint glass

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, golden-brown in color, clear, low carbonation

Smell: citrus and soapy hops

Taste: caramel, husk, citrus and soapy hops

Mouthfeel: sweet start with a light bitter middle and a stronger bitter end, light bodied, moderate carbonation

Overall: An average if not slightly timid IPA that drinks a bit more like a strong pale ale. This is not a beer I would turn down, but not one I would go out of my way for either.

New one from Henry's Typical orange colour of an IPA with a nice enough looking slightly off-white head. Aroma is certainlly hoppy but really doesnt grab your attention, there is in fact a little unpleasantness underneath, but i had tio strain to catch it..so OK. Flavour is quite OK the hopping isnt too agressive and there is a nice enough complmentary semi-sweet maltiness, in deed the hops coat the tongue near the end, not bad. I liked the palate on this beer,not really watery but easy to drink, nice lingering hoppy after taste. Not bad at all at this price range ( under $10 a 12 pack). I am rather enjoying it. A good lighter IPA for the hotter months ( its is a Spring/Summer release). Overall excellent value for money.

Copper color. Two fingers of bone head. Nicely retained.

Muted hops and stale grain. Perhaps a bit floral with hints of citrus fruit.

Upfront bitterness and a tinge of battery acidity implies generous hopping, but the flavors are muddled. Small malt bill, too. The hop oils finish out green and somewhat minty. Hardly a showcase IPA.

Refreshing bite to the body with some gruffness to the carbonation.

Mediocre ale. Lacking flavor. Too mild, too subdued.

2.09/5  rDev -31.9%

Appearance - pours a golden color with a touch of orange. A thick finger of creamy, sticky foam forms up, leaving a nice wall of lace all around.

Aroma - a nice opening whiff of pininess. Some grain kicks in and then pretty much takes over. before long, its just a sweet grain smell, you might not now its an IPA at all. Attains a metallic edge as it warms.

Taste - the sweetness of the grain and the bitterness of the hop hit at the same time. The grains are thin, macro-ish and not at all robust, the hops are washed out with no depth or flavor. Everything has been diluted, I've had spicier pale ales.

Mouthfeel - crisp carbonation, moderate feel, it's alright.

Drinkability - a value buy IPA at DEPs fine wines in Fort Thomas. At $5.99 a 12-pack, I certainly got what I paid for. I don't say this about many beers, but this is one to drink out of the bottle and not a glass to keep some of the unpleasant nose under wraps. I'd grab it as a cheap lawn mower beer, low end fireside beer, something like that.

12oz bottle
Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It has an amber body with flaxen highlights. A short lived head of a beige color made a quick appearance.

S - I get a nose full of caramel malt. Some citrus hops try to get through with little success.

T - It has a weak hop palate. I get mostly caramel malt. There is a slight bitterness that grows with each sip, but not enough.

M - Moderate

O - I did't expect much, and my expectations were met.

3.23/5  rDev +5.2%

Pours a slightly hazy copper with a dense one inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving sheets of lacing.

Bready, sweet, toasted caramel malt and a hint of dank and citrus hops form the aroma.

The flavor is dominated by toasted malt, bready at the finish, but more caramel early. Citrus is secondary, underlying the malt flavor. Nondescript citrus and a bit of a metallic flavor switch things up a bit. The finish is slightly bitter.

Body is a touch watery, with moderate carbonation and a bite of astringency at the finish.

A bit lacking in hop character, both bittering and flavoring.

4.18/5  rDev +36.2%

Henry Weinhard’s Woodland Pass IPA has a thick, soapy, cream-colored head and a hazy (which gets more hazy upon swishing the bottle), bubbly, orange appearance. Lacing is quite pronounced. The aroma is of bread, bread crust, and hop oil, and the flavor is sweet, bready, and has a mild hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Henry Weinhard’s Woodland Pass IPA finishes semi-dry, mellow, and quite drinkable. Overall, this is a very good beer.

3.6/5  rDev +17.3%

The beers clear golden amber with a tall dense head with lite carbs actually bordering on flat. Plain looking.
Smells mostly of malts, malt husks and toasted malts.
Taste is a bore with simple malts and husks.
Drinks fairly smooth and not abrasive as I was expecting.Easy drinking but lacking big time.

Pint glass, nice finger and half of foamy head. Transparent copper colored body.
Almost smells like lemon and pine, so faint though.
A little bitter taste upfront, quickly dies off though. Nothing else.
Crisp texture, moderation carbonation and medium body.
Well, it's brewed under contract in Hood River, Oregon but there's no fooling it's a product of SABMiller, though one of the better tasting ones.
