2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle poured into pint glass. Dark amber colour with a tall, creamy off-white head. Definitely hops in the aroma and flavour but rather mild. No real characteristic to the bitterness, just bitter. Okay IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Pours a dark amber with a white head. Has a strong hoppy aroma. Also has a strong hoppy taste. For me Indian Pale Ales have a very narrow tast difference range so it is very similar to a sweetwater or Dogfishhead IPA. I drank this out of a shaker.

2.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A thick off white head tops this amber brew. Mouthfeel is soft with a nutty malt underbelly. Aroma is rather subdued for an IPA, but the hops are there, ending in a long mildly bitter finish. While certainly on the mellower side of IPA, this is a well-balanced version with easy drinking appeal.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium orange-amber with a good amount of whitish head. Aroma is mild and hoppy. Flavor is a bit bland for an IPA. A little metal, a few notes of grapefruit, some lingering hoppy aftertaste. OK, though probably not bold enough for a true IPA fan.

Bottle. Pours a light amber color with a medium off white head. Aroma of malt, hops, and garpefruit. Flavor is lightly sweet wiith an earthy taste in the background. Has a mild peppery slight bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 9-12-07 bottle. For some reason - this smells a little bit like Chinese Food to me. Bitterness just isn’t there. Tastes like stale malt. Nothing exciting or unique about this beer. Leaves a dreadful coating on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice Piney aroma, honey in color with a soapy looking head. Not as bitter as some IPAs I’ve had but it finishes clean and is very drinkable & sparkling on the palate. A solid effort...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 JW’s!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Seems to be a typical IPA in my opinion. The hops aren’t as aggressive as in most IPAs. Amber color with a good-sized white head.
12 oz. bottle from J.W. Dundee’s Craft Pack.
