COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale is brewed with an aggressive hop profile derived from Amarillo and Simcoe hops. A blend of Crystal malts creates the backbone which supports the hop character without diminishing it.
Formerly JW Dundee’s India Pale Ale

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

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

Bottle. Biscuity caramel malt and musty citrus hop aroma. Clear copper with a large ivory head. Nondescript malt and astringent-metallic weedy hops flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.

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

Mild fruity aroma, deep amber colour with a thin lasting head. Smooth with a bitter pleasent aftertaste. Not too bad

Bottle share by Bob, aroma of skunky hops and stale malt. Taste is similar, stale malt and faded hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

IPA Glass. Clear copper with bubbly head, good lacing. Nice smell of hops. Not bad taste, a bit watery for an IPA. Overly carbonated palate.
