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.

The Dundee brand seems like it has some money behind it. I am not sure why they don’t go and pay someone to brewup a decent beer for them but I guess they’d rather just go w/ the lowest bidder and hope nobody realizes their beers are straight crap. In any case this is an orange beer and actually quite pretty w/ a white head and a fine lattice of lacing. It smells kind of like tangerine and peach, which is sort of nice, but a closer examination leads to a nose-curling twinge of fusel alcohol. Taste is pretty similar but a sort of bubble-gummy malt note comes out and adds a layer of strangeness which I personally do not appreciate. This is a full-bodied brew and slightly heavy for the style w/ medium carbonation. It finishes w/ some lingering sweetness and a little bit of bitterness. This beer is drinkable at best. It has a low pricepoint but there are other brewers making beers at the same price that, if not excellent, at least seem to have been brewed by some sort of professional brewing person (Goose Island as one example). I can never see myself drinking this again if given a choice.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Orange appearance with a lingering white head. Sweet malts, resinous hops, pine and light fruits. Garb.

Do not share this beer with friends when going on a suicide prevention walk, hence you will be saddened when your friends smash the bottle and cut their wrists ...yep it is that bad. Not an IPA, not a good beer, not something I wish I had 5 more of.

pours golden to amber color with a minimal head. aroma ist quiet pleasent, taste is rather floral and bitter, but without the hopy aromas and the malt body is rather thin. Good carbonation though. alright, but that’s it.

Less piney and citrusy than your average IPA. Not without merit but ultimately a bit watery and one-dimensional.

"More along the lines of a well balanced pale than what i look for in an ipa. a little citrus, pine and floral notes, but a little too heavy of a malt profile too. i like my IPAs fresh and hoppy."

Fairly average wee Indian pale ale. Aroma was mellow and mixed in with a sweet malt aroma. Taste was slight bitter but the sweetness was a little cloying. Flavour overly sweet and syrupy.

sm89walt (2073) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2014
355ml bottle. Poured a clear copper with a small, loose and bubbly, disappearing off-white head. Aromas of grassy, pithy citrus and sweet, caramel and biscuity malts. A little too sweet and cloying on the mid-palate with a medium intensity bitterness to (sort of ) balance. Medium body, medium to full carbonation and a lingering finish. Just a little too sweet for the style.

Bottle to half-pint glass. Looks solid; a transparent pale burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells malty, syrupy, and bitter (in that order). Tastes like it smells with a below average mouthfeel. A mess of an "IPA".

KyotoLefty (10523) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 1, 2014
Tap at Genesee Brewhouse. Nose of lemon and orange, somewhat sugary, with caramel and biscuits. Hoppy sweet orange and lemon and 7-Up flavor, decent bitterness. OK, but shows a weird sugary sweetness.
