look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a golden-amber color with a thin head that dissipates instantly. Has nice lacing.

Smell - Fruity, lemon zest, bready, and slightly floral.

Taste - Toasty with caramel, citrus, very malty and yeasty, and very bitter.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Overall - I normally don't drink IPAs, I think they're very gross.. but I love Dundee beers and thought I'd give it a try. It's not too bad compared to the other ones I've tried.. I wouldn't be able to stomach a whole 6-pack though (but that's just me).

Poured into a beer mug.

A: Pours a cloudy copper color that features a lot of yeast sediment floating around. The body looks a bit strange, but the head is nice. It's a three-finger, fluffy looking off white affair with fantastic lacing. I mean, seriously, the mug is coated with head (not THAT kind of head).

S: Smells more bready than hoppy to me. The aroma isn't great, but it's workable.

T: I would have never guessed by looking at the beer (har har), but this tastes surprisingly yeasty. The malty opening is there, the hoppy, grapefruity finish is there (albeit subdued), but I'm surprised at the yeasty taste of this. Not bad, just weird. Despite that, it's balanced pretty nicely.

M: The aftertaste is a little off...the sticky bitterness is there, but it doesn't have the satisfying tongue drying of, say, a Stone IPA. Carbonation is a little low.

O: Eh, kind of uninspired, but a good IPA starting block. Decent budget choice, but I'd rather spend a little more on something else.

Nice and clean amber, with an average head of white foam. Attractive retention, with thick lace.

Nose is floral and pleasant. Good start.

The taste is mild, with some citrus/grapefruit tones. The finish is malty, with the hoppiness seeming to be toned down and scaled back. Overall, decent, but not outstanding. I say session this one.

12oz bottle poured into a Duvel snifter. No date on this brewery's beer, apparently.

Appearance - Pours large barely offwhite head with decent retention and decent to low stick. Hazy amber body.

Smell - Sweet nutty malt and wet grassy, hay hop. Mild and balanced.

Taste - Mild with good balance of hop and malt. Pretty much follows the nose.

Mouthfeel - Prickly hop. Pretty low astringency for the style - I consider that a plus.

Overall Drinkability - Nothing interesting, but well balanced and enjoyable with no off characters. Would make a decent session.

Looks decent. Cleanly filtered copper colored body, and a finger thick off white head with decent retention.

Good amount of of spicy grapefruit hops with a hint of metallic hops.

Mild mannered citrusy hops and a god balance from the toffee taste from the malt.

Feels medium to full in body, mildly carbonated, and leaves the palate a little dry.
