Certainly not as hoppy as I expected. Didn’t really get any curious coming through, was dominated by the malt.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a dark amber/copper with a solid frothy head in a tulip shape glass. I am immediately getting more malty notes, chocolate, toffee etc than hoppy or citrus notes. Malty notes on the palate with a metallic finish, although the aftertaste is a positive one, it does fall flat immediately on the palate.
Perhaps Dundee misbranded this as an IPA. It plays more of an Amber Ale. Theres really not much hops going on here. Perhaps with some better dry hopping it could pass as an IPA. I got a case of 12 oz bottles for $24 dollars so not to shabby for the buck. If you were expecting an IPA, than not the beer for you, if you like malty ales, then this could be a good value buy for your dollar

Aroma is a little hoppy, but really not strong. Taste is a nice blend of hops and malts. Overall not memorable, but solid.

Pours a cloudy golden color with an off white leaving a little lacing. Aroma of hops. Flavor is much more mild than you would expect, body os very weak, seems like they forgot hops while brewing and added them for aroma.
