BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Redhook Ale Brewery
New Hampshire, United States
redhook.com

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.

Nice IPA. Quite a bit less potent than most west coast IPAs. Darker than a lager but not as dark as some IPAs. Again the smell and taste are relatively subtle, but a great beer I'd love to drink on many occasions. Extremely drinkable.

Sparkly clear carbonated gold, your basic champagne-like AAL appearance.

Smells like skunked melon.

Tastes like bitter aluminum.

This may be worse than your basic, cheap, conglomerate AAL. Yuck!

Clear gold color with white cap with good lacing.

Aroma: Piney, citrus hops supported by caramel malt.

Taste starts off well enough, hops and a small amount of malt. Hops quickly take over and dominate all the way through to the finish which carries a lingering hop bitterness.

Medium texture with balancing carbonation.

Overall it's a good taste but with this ABV I'd like to see more malt presence. Hop are there in a pleasant way but the scale is tilted too far in the hop direction. I understand this is intended to be a craft competitor but I believe we're past the point where just adding more hops is enough to set the product apart.
