Bottle label data: none noted.

Clear, dark gold colored body with nice carbonation and a good, thick, frothy head. Little aroma other than some malt sweetness and the barest hint of hop spiciness. Mild malt flavor with an equal dose of hop bitterness; soapy. Medium bodied; slightly coarse on the tongue; dry finish.

A rather bland, unexciting IPA. The hop character, especially with aroma, lacks presence and impact. Even the malt flavors are pretty mild. The whole enchilada comes across as weak and stale. An IPA with a pretty face but a shallow personality.

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My fourth and final beer from the Dundee variety twelve pack, acquired on sale at the local Jewel-Osco for $10.99. Expectations are average given the source. No abv listed on the bottle.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a cloudy sienna orange body with some fine dark sediment in the glass. Just over a finger of frothy off-white head that leaves good thin spindles of lacing. Head has good staying power, and it appears adequately carbonated. Looks nice for what it is.

S - The aroma carries that same distinct creamy / yeasty sort of aroma that the rest of these Dundee beers carried. Fruity, jammy, and estery, though not bitter and hoppy in the usual sense of an IPA - I get no grapefruit, no citrus rinds, no pine needles, no resinous hop ooze. More bready, malty, & creamy. Pleasant enough, but not what I have come to expect from an IPA.

T - Taste follows the nose - bready honeyed malt, and some peachy aprictos n' cream. Mildly grassy, grainy, & floral, but still no bitter grapefruit, citrus rinds, or pine resins. Some mild alcohol astringency is apparent on the finish.

M - Smooth, crisp, & creamy. Medium-bodied with good prickly carbonation. Semi-dry finish, but not what I would describe as bitter. A bit more hop bitterness wouldn't hurt at all.

Overall, an average IPA offering at best. Worth a go, but not something worth seeking out.

Dundee India Pale Ale -----3/5.

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

Pours a soapy, off-white head. A citric aroma that is reminiscent of handsoap. Amber color. Starts with very bitter front. There is pine and citrus rind. There is a caramel flavor behind all of this which intensifies as the bitterness subsides. Finish is lingering citrus rind.

This is surprisingly okay. I was expecting something terrible, but was pleasantly surprised.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there is no "best by" date that I can find.

APPEARANCE: pours a cloudy light copper color with one-finger off-white head that slowly dissipated to a thin layer of small bubbles that lasted throughout, there is a good amount of lacing on the glass with medium carbonation

SMELL: light citrus, flowery and a little pine, the nose is very understated.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet caramel, citrus then a very mild piney hop profile, the hops became a little more pronounced as the beer warmed but still very understated for the style.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: this was a good beer but nothing spectacular, very reasonably priced at $9.99 for a sampler 12 pack, for the price and quality I would definitely buy this again. This is definitely one of the more mildly hopped IPA's I've ever had but I enjoyed it.

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.
