Mendocino Brewing 'White Hawk Select' IPA

Mendocino White Hawk IPA 1
Mendocino Brewing 'White Hawk Select' IPA. 7% abv. 60 IBU. Hazy honey color. Two fingers of thick white foamy head. Outstanding retention and ample scattered lace. Nose of pine, sweet citrus, fruity hops. Front taste of bittersweet citrus peel, light spice, herbal hops on the back. Aftertaste of bitter fruity hop bouquet, grapefruit rind, mild floral sustain, dry finish. Medium body. Mouthfeel is light for a medium bodied brew. Tangy, acidic, carby.

This is an excellent IPA, true to standard and well crafted with bright notes of bitter citrus and sweet light malt. Its pungent aroma promises a basket of piney, fruity hops, which is delivered in its flavors of citrus and floral notes. Good stuff here. Recommended.

From the brewery:

"White Hawk Select IPA is a traditional India Pale Ale. We’ve blended American West Coast Cascade Hops with a very generous dose of English Fuggle Hops. This combination makes for a very aromatic character, as well as a truly authentic English flavor which you must taste to believe. 'Hopheads' will love this brew!"
