Default BAD BEER WARNING: Henry Weinhards IPA

Me and a buddy picked up a six pack of this tonight. I was enticed by the "brewed with cascade, Citra, and galena hops" label... But alas, it was terrible. It tastes like they repackaged Miller Genuine Draft. Horrible! Stay away!

I didn't think it was all that bad. It just was more like a Pale Ale, than a hop bomb Ipa...but once I realized what it was, I quite enjoyed it. I don't think it warrants a "Warning" thread.... It's just not what people expect it should be. But that doesn't make it horrible. It just means it's no Two Hearted Ale, or DFH 60.....but it's still hoppier than miller light.

I'll give it somewhat easy to drink... But once I figured out it was a Miller product, I couldn't get over that one particular flavor of ML that I used to have.

My problem with A lot of beers like this is the way they're disguised to fool people. I have no problem with Miller, Bud, or Coors getting into the craft beer market. I enjoyed Bud American Ale. I just don't like not knowing what i'm buying. When i'm in a beer store I usually don't have access to a lot of information about a beer. I'd hope that the bottle would easily let me know who is brewing the product.

The bottle said Portland, OR, on one side, and Milwaukee, WI, on the other. That made me suspicious.

Wow really surprised about this thread. I actually really enjoyed it for a 6.99 6 pack.

Plus how citra galena and cascade are honestly my top 3 hops for aroma and flavor. I dont think they bittered with any of these strains unless possibly cascade? I find it really smooth and a great "session" ale....IPA? maybe not but deff beer to me!

EDIT: Ahh i see. Did you go into this tasting with the knowledge that miller manufactures it now?

Thought it was OK,mild ipa.More sessionable than most. Ive had worse better known craft ipa's. Glad I didnt buy a whole sixer of it,but I still would have one if offered. You(not you personally OP) probably will(or should) have an idea of what your getting into here with this if you buy it. I thought it was predictable,but a little better than expected.

Yeah, I was really disappointed by this one too. Its not that it was terrible, but it was not at all what I expected, or what they claimed it was.
