Straight from the bottle at a friend’s party. Couldn’t assess the appearance. Minimal insight into the aroma. This beer is emblematic of those that made me think I didn’t like IPAs. Weak hoppy flavor, malt-forward, uninteresting. Not recommended.

I'm not pouring this. I'm drinking this straight from the bottle. How many other Henry drinkers are going to bother pouring their beers? NONE! Henry drinkers get the product because it is lower priced than all the microbrews and slightly tastier than the macrobrews. It's that step between, but isn't quite right. This is not an IPA at all. I'm not tasting hops, I'm not sure what I'm tasting but it's kinda bitter and chemically... It's like I'm drinking High Fructose Hops Syrup... It's easy enough to drink though and feels okay on the mouth, but is clearly not something I would choose to repeat drinking. If you're going to bother getting a cheap IPA, somehow the Pyramid Thunderhead IPA comes a lot closer, and I really don't like Pyramid. Chalk this beer up to pretty much useless. It's going to give people a bad impression of what an IPA is supposed to be. GOOD JOB HENRY! KEEP UP THE BAD WORK!

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

A- mostly clear shiny copper with golden highlights and a foamy buff colored head that is loose and airy and loud and generic looking. Not very hoppy looking either. Lace abounds.

S- brightly floral, spicy and citrus, but subdued. Underlying orange peel and caramel toasted grains.

T- pleasant bitterness with a resinous hop flavor, but Sierra Nevada pale ale seems hoppier than this IPA. It's got some lightly toasty grains and a small hint of sweetness but it lacks any sort of complexity or intrigue. Finishes nicely balanced but again, it has a very generic taste.

MF- medium bodied and fizzy with moderate dryness.

D- this is one laid back easy going IPA. Dollar store IPA. It's not offensive in any way, just bland.

I was really underwhelmed with this one. It was a basic golden color, just a little richer than a Budweiser or some such bs beer. The hops were pretty lacking in both the aroma and the taste. Really, if it didn't say "IPA" on the label, I never would have placed it as such. Not horrible, but not good in any way!

A- Poured from bottle into pint glass, dark amber color
S- Smelled "thick" to me, with an aroma of alcohol and some hops
T- This beer was maltier than I expected. I didn't get much taste of hops, which was a disappointment. It also tasted a bit flat.
M- Flat aftertaste, not pleasant, almost skunky. Could have been the bottle, not sure.

Overall, I didn't really enjoy anything about this beer. Its not horrible, but its not worth buying IMO.

12oz bottle with best buy date 7/18/11 poured into Mac & Jack's pint glass, reviewed on 4/15/11

A: Pours a clear golden color with off-white head and lots of lacing around glass. Looks good.

S: Smell is dominated by grassy hops, not very strong and not the greatest hop aroma, some unpleasant stale malt with a hint of alcohol. Smells more like a hop forward pale ale than an IPA.

T: Tastes a bit better than it smells but not the hop dominant taste you expect from an IPA. Sweet base malts with a hint of orange. Some grassy hops on top of the malt add enough hoppiness for Henry's to call this an IPA. Tastes pretty much like Henry's Private Reserve with extra hops.

M: Some bitterness up front, light bodied with good carbonation. Not a real smooth drinking beer.

O: Tastes better than the regular Henry's but they really missed the mark for trying to make an American IPA. Won't be buying this one anytime soon. A buck more for six pack can get me significantly better beer.

A:Nice clear golden color. Lace on the glass ran away relatively fast. Great looking head at first that dissipated faster than expected.
S:Light in smell with almost absent hop aroma, but a lingering citric essence.
T:Malty on the front of the taste with a gradual tartness toward the finish. Too light on the hops. Almost a slight phenolic aftertaste.
M:Gentle mouth feel that rolls across the tongue, nothing special.

Overview: Not a bad beer at $9.99 12pk. Very run of the mill mild IPA almost borderline Pale Ale. Not a very smooth drinkable beer, I could drink about two and no more. Part of what I taste is a slight phenolic finish, which almost makes you try to scrape the taste off your tongue with your teeth. Perfect beer to take to family gathering where there's not great appreciation for fine beers. An alright step up from Bud, Coors, Miller, etc.
