Bottle poured into a glass

A: a clear, golden copper with large head that recedes quickly. Lacing is moderate but also fades down.

S: moderately high malty aroma with (surprisingly) very little of hops piney- or citrus smell. Has a skunky wafting of garbage and perhaps some DMS.

T: Unacceptably low hops for this style. No caramel flavors but the malty sweetness is overbearing and out of place.

M: Moderate carbonation and a finish that is rather unpleasant because of the high sweetness of the malt and low hoppy complement.

D: Not very drinkable.

Overall: This beer was purchased in a variety pack and the only explanation that I have as to why it was so out of character was that the IPA label was put on the wrong style.

not a very good american ipa at all imo. slightly to pale in color, very little lacing. but the smell is a very strong perfumy almost toxic. taste slightly like dish soap... (yes i make sure my glasses are very clean and dry) not entirely horrible but deffinately something i will avoid.

IPA? More like a barley wine if anything.
Most prominent smell and flavor is barley alcohol.
Thin overall body and feel.
A poor attempt at an IPA
Not a very good beer no matter what you call it.
The best thing about this beer is it proves "You get wait you pay for". Oh well.

This is awful. Almost a tin can aftertaste... Thin head that appears to last but disappointing.

I've had this beer many times because Dundee's variety pack is generally a good bargain for what you get.

However this is not one of those beers, that is, if your someone who likes IPA's.

Perhaps its because of the underwhelming hoppiness of this beer, or some hint of flavor that I still can't make it after drinking one on at least half a dozen occasions. There is something odd in the taste of this beer that doesn't feel quite right.

I will say that it is easy to drink, but tends to leave a dissatisfying taste in the back of your mouth. Also the Dundee Pale Ale, tastes far more like an IPA than this beer.

Its affordable and easily picked up in a variety pack at your local costco, so worth a try, if for no other reason than to compare with a decent IPA.

Given to me as a gift:

Pours out nicely with above average head that can stick around awhile. Has a good amber appearance that presents itself nicely.

Aroma sets itself with light hops and floral smell with no stand out character.

Taste of hops are present though watered and bitter leaving the taste bids waiting for the next flavor and never quite getting it.

A nice gift but would recommend other IPAs for the more traditional IPA drinker. This could be pleasant for those seeking less hoppy IPAs.

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: pours a deep clear gold, dense white head, plenty of lacing, nice retention

S: nose comprises of wet cardboard, earthy hops that smell very bitter, not much malt, kind of spicy. Something smells off...

T: starts off with mellow sweetness and some caramel malts, this gives way to the bitter hop profile that has a metallic and harsh character, very dry on the finish, terrible balance...leaves bad taste in the mouth

MF: medium body, high carbonation

O: not too impressed by this, tastes like some of the first IPAs I homebrewed (which weren't very good). Lacks balance and character..
