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 Dundeeís India Pale Ale

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 9-12-07 bottle. For some reason - this smells a little bit like Chinese Food to me. Bitterness just isnít there. Tastes like stale malt. Nothing exciting or unique about this beer. Leaves a dreadful coating on the tongue.

Nice Piney aroma, honey in color with a soapy looking head. Not as bitter as some IPAs Iíve had but it finishes clean and is very drinkable & sparkling on the palate. A solid effort...

The foam is outrageously good, lacing is all over the place! ... A nicely done mild IPA ... Middle of the road beer but it takes the left lane.. One of the finer JWís!

Seems to be a typical IPA in my opinion. The hops arenít as aggressive as in most IPAs. Amber color with a good-sized white head. 12 oz. bottle from J.W. Dundeeís Craft Pack.

Clear amber body with a small creamy white head. Sweet citrus hops aroma with a caramel background. Grainy caramel malt flavor with some citrus hops shining through.

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Rich, deep amber with a foamy, lasting head. Light body; kind of creamy. Malts were weak; some toast, pinch of caramel; some "candy sugar" notes, similar to some Canadian IPAs Iíve had. Hops were underwhelming. Somewhat stark (plant-like) right off the bat. Flat aroma (single flower). Bitterness was a bit unbalanced (not enough malt to cleave off the starkness). Drinkable, but I didnít really enjoy this IPA.

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 How can an IPA be so sweet? How is this possible? David Schlosser should be taking the classes, not teaching them. Retasted on 16 Aug 08 - Not sure eactly when things changed, but this si a well constructed, refreshing, proper IPA. Nicely malted with plenty of hops. Moved from 1.9 to 3.3 here.

Bottle: Bright copper pour with a smaller beige head. Nose is floral and citrus hops with some maltiness. Flavor has decent floral hoppiness and retains a little malt backbone. Just a bit soapy. Still easily the best of the JW Leeís series.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 pours copper with a nice 11/2 finger bubbly off white head. aroma is hops then some malt with a little soap. has a medium body with ok lacing and good carbonation. flavor is malt then hops with a little sweet caramel then some soap and pine. has a nice dry hop aftertaste and the pine grows stronger in the aftertaste. not bad of an ipa i guess- it is session-able. also has a little bite on the tongue from the carbonation and hops. this is the best beer out of the six beer sample pack i bought and then comes the american amber and apa at second best. re-rate on a fresh bottle from a regular six pack a very good cheap go to ipa, 2/$10 at a jewel osco no less. more like a good apa/above average/good ipa. has a little orange peel also in a fresh bottle. has a little grapefruit thrown in also. this beer is very hard to rate, which is a first for me. some were hard , but this is very hard in the ipa category.
