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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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."

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

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".

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.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dundee IPA stole my lunch money and degraded my sense of self-worth. What I mean to say is that it’s not very good. I’m relatively sure that the brewery put an IPA label on a bottle of shitty pale lager. This brew smells like malts and has a very faint note of grassy hops. Flavor profile is just... I don’t even know where to begin. It’s spicy in an awkward way. Mostly it’s just a lot of boring malt flavor. The mouthfeel is extremely thin and aggressively spritzy. Over-carbonated and under-hopped would be the best way to describe this beer. In terms of balance, flavor, and aroma this is probably the worst IPA I’ve ever tasted.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A- Malts, subtle grass, subtle citrus, cereal.
A- Golden orange color, clear liquid, no head.
T- Watery, slight citrus, subtle bitterness.
P- Medium body, average texture, medium carbonation, boring finish.
O- If this is an IPA, then I am not sure what an IPA is anymore. More like an odd lager that is not very good. I don’t think there is much else to say.
