3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper bodied with a respectable head that laces heavily, this has a faint aroma of pale malt, orange rind, and grapefruit. The hops come forward more strongly (if unaggresively) in the flavor with a citric bitterness that outmatches the generic malt sweetness. More like an APA, but better than anticipated.

Clear deep gold. Lasting off-white head. Nose is of citrus, yeast and hop . Lightly carbonated. Hoppy beer with some malt. There is a sharpness. Some sweetness with mild dryness. One of the better JW Dundees.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is earthy, the color comes from Rumpelstiltskin’s wheel. Tastes orange rind bitter with a sweet , almost kumquat rind, note. Finish is like grapefruit, clean with a great lingering bitterness. Unlike all this citrus fruit, the beer is not sour, I didn’t find this model a "lemon."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 10, 2008 I thought this was a pretty good IPA, especially for such a cheap price. The color was nice and the flavor was good-fine amount of bitterness along with a slight "hoppy" nose. I am a big fan of Amarillo hops so, I may be a bit biased. I found it in a sample pack. I would certianally buy more if it were available in 6 packs.

This was a very good beer, had it in a mix pack, and perhaps the best beer in the pack along with the JW Dundees Pale Ale, which had a lot of similarities.
