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.

Pours a golden color with about a finger of thin head that dissipates quickly into a thin white film around the edges.

Slight citrus (orange) aroma with some notes of grass. Very underwhelming for an American IPA.

Taste is also underwhelming for an American IPA. Almost no malt sweetness and very little actual hop flavor with pronounced bitterness from start to finish.

Carbonation is probably the best part of this beer as the mouthfeel is excellent. Slightly buttery reminds me of a bitter Sam Summer Ale.

Overall this is a mostly poor example of a modern American IPA. I expected a lot from this beer but alas it did not deliver. Their Winter Hook, on the other hand is amazing!

well, it's a clear golden brew with a white head that dissappears almost as fast as you can pour it. Pine, citrus, and malt notes fight for dominance on the nose, although there is no clear victor. Malt definitely strikes me as the most prevelant flavor, although citrus is a close second, with the pine only becoming apparent in the finish. The finish is bittersweet. The carbonation is over the top, but it is counter-acted by a beautiful oily mouthfeel. I feel like I am becoming more scrupulous in my reviews, but maybe that is a good thing. This used to be one of my favorite brews, but now it's okay at best.

Pours a very clear yellow. Smells like a regular beer that is well crafted. Doesn't invite a strong hop presence, and any note that is hop like is not very interesting. Taste is clean and sweetish with an only slight hop bitterness, and not as hop forward as an IPA should be. Not hardly a bitter sustain Mouthfeel is nice and a bit dry and carbonation is way high adding to an overall creaminess. This is like a regular old beer, and tastes like it should, but this isn't an IPA.
