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.

Poured from bottle to pint glass the beer arrives a clear golden straw color with a small 1 finger white head, some retention and lacing but not really much to comment on. Similarly the nose is weak with hints of pine hop character and biscuit malt character. This carries into the taste, which again is weak. Not much character at all. Toasted biscuit malt, mild bitterness, hint of pine in the hop. Finishes crisp and clean. Lighter bodied. Overall, forgettable.

12 ounce bottle - $1.49 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia

Appearance: Pours a clear, copper body with a thin, white head. Thin, delicate lacing on the way down.

Smell: Grassy, citrusy hop scents overlaying a very basic pale maltiness.

Taste: Pale malts with a medium sweetness. In succession: citrus, soap, grass. Medium bitterness. Dry, only faintly bitter finish. Redhook simply phones it in with this one.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: As an India Pale Ale, it's very basic, very average, but not very memorable.
