look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
355 mL bottle - or should that be 12 fl oz? - into pint glass. No expiry date.
Medium gold color, substantial head just slightly off-white with little retention.
Aroma is dominated by hops, mostly piney with notes of citrus and spice. Noticeable sweetness.
Tastes of American "C" hops and very substantial sweetness - worty without a lot of caramel. It has the malt/hops balance of an English IPA without the malty complexity. After the second or third it gets cloying.
Mouthfeel is thick and sticky.
Decent IPA overall, but sweet and a little bit simplistic. I can't judge the price as this was picked up for me in the States and I'm a Canadian - but if this were priced in the "budget" range here in Ontario, I would definitely pick it up on the regular.

Dundee India Pale Ale (IPA) 6pk bottles $6.99(OH)
12 oz brown bottle poured into a white wine glass. No freshness date, just bottling codes you will have to look up.
pours a nice clear amber color. two finger peach-white head that lasts a good time. followed by decent lacing hugging the inside of the glass.
The aroma is rather light/subtle for an IPA, however it's a budget price. A light hoppy, floral citrus smell. With a slight hint of pine.
The taste is subtle too. Subtle grapefruit and citrus notes, followed by a hoppy floral taste. finishes with a touch of pine, bold and bitter. Not bad but could be better, but for the price cant complain at all.
mouth feel is light to medium body. Has a light citrus sting that sticks around. It is bitter which is true to style. However it's over carbonated with is not true to IPA style. Unlike most IPA's that I have had.
Overall a Good budget IPA. Not an IPA to shout about. I have had way better, but the price is right and cheap. Found this at my local wally world, never seen anything from dundee in my area except for their geneese brand and honey brown. Not a blow you away IPA but a Great budget buy for a brew that is easy to drink and nice ABV too.
