Brewed by:
Redhook Ale Brewery
New Hampshire, United States

Style: American IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.20%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The generous addition of hops both during and at the end of the fermentation process (dry-hopping) gives our India Pale Ale its characteristic bitterness and piney citrus aroma and flavor. The medium body, crisp finish, and moderate alcohol and IBU levels makes this one of America’s most drinkable and best-selling IPAs.

44 IBU

Appearance: Light amber/copper color with just over a finger of white head. Very fine lacing that clings a bit to my glass.

Smell: Pine, citrus, caramel malts, and some floral hops.

Taste: Biscuity, along with a bit of caramel up front. Medium amount of floral and piney hops overlay everything. Definitely a bit light on the hops

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: Light bodied, fairly smooth with decent carbonation. Fairly drinkable IPA, but probably not one I'd go out of my way to try again.

Poured a clear, light amber. Somewhat thin head that quickly fell to a thin ring with faint whispy islands.
Grassy, piney hops. Only hints of grapefruit. Sweet malts, white grapes/golden raisins, very light brown sugar.
Tastes pretty similar to the aromas, but the hops seem to fade pretty quickly.
Somewhat thin mouthfeel. Gets a little watery near the back of the tongue.
Somewhat high ABV keeps this from being a session beer. OK flavors, they won't offend anyone.
This may be a good gateway beer for someone who only drinks light beer (i.e. Bud Light), but I'm not sure this would really appeal to the craft beer drinker. Not a drain pour, but won't be seeking this out again. Glad I only bought one bottle of this.

A nice amber in appearance, no cloudiness, having a thick head with good lace. Smell is hoppy, citrusy, but light in aroma. Taste has the hops, grapefruit and a light sweetness in the malt, which also seems on the light side. Mouthfeel is smooth, but light for an IPA with crisp carbonation. Certianly nothing to get excited over for true IPA lovers.
