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 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!

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 arenít as aggressive as in most IPAs. Amber color with a good-sized white head.
12 oz. bottle from J.W. Dundeeís Craft Pack.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
