Review from BeerAdvocate magazine Vol. II Issue VII:
Look at Dundee, new labels and marketing. They're certainly not the new kids on the block, but this IPA jumped into the market about two years ago, sporting a true modern American-style hopping of Amarillo and
Bright and shiny copper hue, decent head retention with some sporadic stickage. Sweet and herbal hop aroma of mandarin oranges, freshly cut grass and faint powdered aspirin. A bit of sweet biscuity malt in the nose as well. Big on crispness with a fluffy medium body. Dull bitter hop bite from a broader hop flavor that throws thick herb (nearly aspirin-like), spearmint and leaf at the taste buds. Maltiness has a semi-restrained character with a mild sweetness throughout and a juicy kernel of toasted biscuit in the middle. Very clean palate here. The alcohol is a little bit warming with a quick punch of pepper spiciness. Finishes a little dry with more of that dull bitterness.
Bitterness is the star here, with the beer being so clean it might be letting the hops come through a bit too much, as they step all over the malt. Not to nitpick ... a little bit more maltiness to balance would not hurt, but regardless, it is certainly drinkable and within its style.

... not impressed. I like IPA's, but this one let me down a little. It had the bare bones of what I wanted, nice hop flavor and in the nose as well. Standard carbonation and mouthfeel and appearance. It was oddly sweet, however. A little vanilla bread like and metallic. Not impressed with Dundee.
