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.

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.

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 I’ve 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 didn’t 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 Lee’s 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.

12 oz bottle out of the JW Craft Pack. This IPA was good. Moderately hoppy, sort of bitter fruitiness -- grapefruit maybe.

has a sweet aroma, not typical for IPA, but typical for JW Dundees, not an overwhelming floral IPA, but with the sweet mix enjoyable.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Another good brew from J W Dundees. Pours a clear copper with a thick white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat light, but there are definite notes of grass and pine and maybe a little citrus. Good bite of bitterness up front with pine and grapefruit prevelant. Finishes with some sweetness that dissolves into a slightly bitter aftertaste. For the price, a very good IPA.

Ratman197 (10538) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle poured a clear copper with a large lasting off white head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, light pine and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied crisp and slightly dry. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, light pine and a hint of grapefruit rind with a crisp drey moderatly bitter finish. A rather boring IPA.

Pours an amber-orange and mixed in with the aroma of hops is a fruity aroma. Good mouth feel. There’s a somewhat smooth sweet flavor to it. Rather bold but not as bold as other IPA’s. A fairly good IPA by itself.
