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

A- Very light golden straw color, with a small amount of carbonation bubbles. Mildly cloudy.

S- Floral citrus smell, some mild hints of hops and malts. Not very strong.

T- Floral hints at first followed by some grapefruit taste, mild hop flavor, with a medium/mild bitter taste in the finish.

M- Medium carbonation with a fairly light body and very smooth. Somewhat dry.

O- I liked this beer. Personally I would not go as far as considering it an IPA but more of a pale ale. However labeling aside This is very drinkable and I would consider it the easy drinking lawnmower beer of IPA's very refreshing smooth. Great easy drinker and crossover beer for those new to the IPA style.

Color is a dull amber, almost lagerish. Smells a bit sour, not a good sign. Ugh, there's no hops. Totally devoid of soul. Thin mouthfeel to boot. Not impressed. I usually rate beers on the high side, this one is especially bad, so below average it goes.
