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

Decent IPA. The aroma is hoppy of course, but citrusy hoppy. The appearance is a coppery color typical to the style. the flavor a a decent hop bite, with the grapefruit flavor in the background. The palate has a lasting hop sting, also partly due to the beer’s carbonation. Not a bad IPA, certainly not the best.

Borrrris (110) - LINDENHURST, New York, USA - MAR 14, 2008
Bottle: Sampler Pack 2008. No expert on this- but not what I was expecting in a beer labelled an IPA. Very similar to their Pale Ale with a tad more (inappropriately?) citrussy character, but still not much of a finish. At least it tastes likes something- unlike some other beers in it’s price class

ilovedarkbeer (2683) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Sample box split with BMan1113VR. Orange color with no head. Minimal lacing. Piney, soapy, woody, and hoppy aroma. Tatse is strange and fruity with a metalic finish and a salty mouthfeel. Just sub par.

BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 6, 2008
Tasted with ilovedarkbeer. Aroma is piney with some soap. Az small, off-white head, a touch of lacing with a dark orange body. Taste isn’t that interesting. Mouthfeel is metallic with a watery, fizzy feel.

Thanks jetzler. Poured a big foamy, receding white head with a warm golden body. Grapey, sweet tea aroma with very subdued hop fragrance. More sweet tea-like English malt and malt syrup flavors plus some notable herbal bitterness with some grainy astringency in the finish. Very little hop character, aside from the bitterness. Not really in the true spirit of the style—more just a marketing ploy, me thinks.

33 cl bottle, Fargo. Deep golden colour, promising hop aroma. Crisply carbonated, less body than desired. Okay for the price, better options exist however.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2008 From a 12 oz bottle as part of a craft beer variety pack. Pours clear amber with just small amount of foam around the outside of the glass. I get an aroma of spice and citrus hops, with a slight hint of fresh coffee beans. The coffee doesn’t translate over in flavor, instead a warm citrus flavor with hops on the finish. It’s highly carbonated with almost a burning sensation on the tongue.This is a pretty good beer, although the strength of the flavor is nowhere near many other IPAs on the market.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2008
12 oz. bottle - Pours a hazy amber color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is lighly spiced, citrus hops with a touch of toasted caramel malt. Flavor is a lighly sweetened toasted malt with a good bit of hops for balance. Has a slight hop aftertaste. Medium body. A decent beer.

a clear orange beer under a large creamy white head. light citrus hop aroma. nothing too obnoxious. flavor of citrus hops and a good bready malt. lightly tart with a touch of baking soda. moderately carbonated with a light-medium body. standard ipa, but nice.

I would not recommend JW Dundees India Pale Ale. Everything about this beer screams average. With so many great IPA’s on the market, this one is not worth your time.
