Mendocino White Hawk Original IPA (355ml Bottle)

Mendocino White Hawk Original IPA 355ml Bottle

Description

White Hawk is a traditional IPA . The IPA recipe is based on the original 1880 brew that was sent to India for the British troops. The advent of India Pale Ale was born of a need to supply beer in the 1800's to British troops in India. This hearty, heavily hopped ale was brewed to endure the rigors of the long voyage from Great Britain. White Hawk Original IPA was launched in California in early 2002 to meet the demand for a unique India Pale Ale. Consumer response for White Hawk IPA exceeded expectations and it is fast gaining a loyal following both in 6 pack and on draft.

Tasting Notes

Pours a clear orange body with a finger-width, foamy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a good amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet with lots of caramels, but has a good amount of fresh, piney orange. Flavor is quite nice. Lots of sweet caramels, but well balanced with a surprising amount of piney bitterness. Lots of sweet lemon and grapefruit citrus with an earthy bitterness. Finishes dry with lots of flavor. Big time citrus, caramel, and a light toasty toffee that linger for quite awhile. Palate is medium to full and very smooth. Overall, this is a good IPA. Highly under-rated. Lots of sweet caramels, fresh pine, and juicy citrus make this quite enjoyable. Excellent balance and easy drinking

India Pale Ale & IPA

India Pale Ale gets its name and unique style from British brewers who were making beer for export to India. This style has an intense hop flavor which was used to preserve the beer for the long voyage. India Pale Ale has a golden to copper color with a medium maltiness and body. The aroma is moderate to very strong. IPAs work especially well at cutting the heat of chili, vindaloo or Sichuan cuisine.
