3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear, light copper with a dense, frothy, beige head that leaves behind creamy lace as it diminishes. The aroma is fairly muted for an IPA: piny, citric hops on top of sweet, lightly bready malt. Fairly light bodied, for an IPA, the palate is soft and slick with a mildly bitter finish. Sweet malt up front with citrus and pine notes coming in behind. While it’s a decent drinker, the flavor isn’t particularly inspired. I can think of at least a dozen other IPAs, available locally, that I’d buy before I would purchase this one again.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear copper color with fast-fading white head. Aroma has a tiny bit of floral hoppiness, and it is sweet, but barely there, with a bit of also-subtle biscuityness. Taste is off and grainy, with a bit of stinging hop presence. Rather light, with a clean finish. A decent macroIPA nonetheless.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, 6.3% a/v
Pours a rich copper brown with a decent thick tan head. The aroma is largly hops, with some malt, some soap, and some citrus. The taste is hoppy and clean with a nice malt blend and a delicious citrus hop aftertaste. Both of JW Dundees Pale Ales (american and indian) are delicious

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light amber with a medium white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy, as is the taste, with a small hop aftertaste but not much. A decent underhopped IPA, nothing special.

A nice IPA. Im not a fan of them but it is what it was supposed to be. I guess in the winter I like more dark beers. Drinkable. Nice head, light body. Better summer beer I think.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s been far too long since I had an IPA, so my rating may be a little skewed. Pours a light clear amber. Aroma of cotton candy (very sweet malts) and citrusy hops. The flavour is mild... too mild. A bit of sweetness from the malt and a disappointingly small bitter kick from the hops. Pine and oak. Dry finish with a short lived aftertaste. Not bad, not great... but it’s an IPA, so yum.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours golden with a big head that stays. Aroma is malty and floral. The flavor is pretty well balanced however not very complex and the body is thin. Not delicious, slightly enjoyable.

(Bottle) Pours a light copper color with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste includes a lot of sweet malt, much like their APA. The hop presence is there however, and seems to balance with the malt. Somewhat astringent finish. Ehhh, it’s OK.
