2.7/5  rDev -16.9%

Clear copper with a finger of white foam. Quick to recede. Splotchy lace.

Floral and spicy hops, rich caramel hops on the nose. A touch of grapefruit.

A nice, subtle blend of floral, spice, and citrus hops over a sturdy caramel malt backbone. I'm guessing that this is a throwback to the 90s IPA, Willamette and Cascade over 2row with mid-range caramel malts. Not bad at all, and proof that the American IPA had solid footing to begin with.

Medium bodied with lowish carb. Suits the beer.

Definitely not my favorite IPA, not by a long shot. But drinkable, flavorful, and enjoyable.

3/5  rDev -7.7%

Into a pint glass

A: golden-amber colored body with a thin head that dissipates instantly, barely any lacing

S: fruity leaning closer to a lemon aroma, floral with some light notes of pine as well

T: lemon/fruitiness to it and hops

M: light to medium, strangely sessionable, decent amount of carbonation felt, no aftertaste, bland finish

O: not a bad IPA, not the greatest, but decent. I would have this only on tap again.

3.6/5  rDev +10.8%

Appearance - 4/5 - slightly hazy copper color and a one finger white head that quickly disappears.

smell - 4/5 - strong malt aroma followed by a subtle hop aroma

Taste - 3.5/5 - fairly sweet/malty followed by a mineral type of flavor (from the water?) and earthy hops. I find the mineral and earthy flavors a little off putting.

Mouthfeel - 3/5 - moderate carbonation, maybe a little light. A strange aftertaste is left behind.

Overall - 3.5/5 - overall, its not bland but it seems that way. Perhaps its just not my taste.

3/5  rDev -7.7%

A - Crystal clear amber body, beneath a finger of white foam. Light lacing follows.

S - Light on hops, sweet caramel.

T - Very mild hop flavour and bitterness, some apricot and caramel malt.

M - Watery thin, low carbonation.

O - Pretty piss weak IPA, but I suppose it may work OK as an introduction into craft for macro heads.

2.2/5  rDev -32.3%

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..

2.85/5  rDev -12.3%

12 fl oz brown glass bottle served in a pint glass, reviewed live:

A - Pours a nearly transparent copper color with meek looking, tan one finger head. Retention is poor. Pretty generic.

S - Heavy, heavy caramel. The balance is surprisingly biased towards the malt. Light grassy hops notes are there, but definitely are not the focus. It's simple and imbalanced (and not the normal IPA imbalanced).

T - The balance is far better than the nose predicted, but it's still very simple. A crystal malt overload precedes a semi-bitter finish. The hops are very light, grassy and floral. I actually like whichever hops variety was used quite a bit, and wish there was more of it.

M - Medium bodied, and oddly thick.

D - It's not bad though it's largely unremarkable and forgettable. I'd pass on it in the future. I've yet to be impressed by a beer from Dundee yet.

2.8/5  rDev -13.8%

12 oz bottle poured into a tulip
Odd little find at Dan Murphy's in Eastwood when was sent off to go buy wine for the Girlfriend.

A-- Poured a clear golden amber color. Lots of little carbonation bubbles on the sides of the glass. One finger off white head that rapidly went to film. Good head retention on swirling. Swirled two fingers worth. Left spongy, web like lacing on fading back t,o film. Not bad looking.

S-- Fresh cut grass smell, mixed with some floral notes and a it of metal. Not a real impressive nose at all.

T-- Bread, grass, white pepper, metallic, and floral. Little bits of lemon in the front. Decent sized malt backbone. Meh.

M-- Grassy, metallic feel with slight bits of bread and a metallic lemon citrus finish. Gets really heavy as it warms up and at times too sweet.

O-- More English style than US style and still not that great. Commercial version of a IPA.

2.48/5  rDev -23.7%

I will review 1000 American IPAs, and to achieve this goal I have to revew some bad ones, purchased a single for 1.29 at Villiage Pump in College Park, MD. Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a DC Brau "pig" mason jar glass. Not quite the character limit, damnit, OK I'll describe the beer too.

Amber, clear, big off white head, some lacing, moderate carbonation, particulates are floating in it.

Aroma is grainy, sweet, complete lack of hops.

Beer si medium in body and gritty on the palate, sweet and a little dry with a bad aftertaste, not giong to subject myself to this any longer, next.
