Got a 12-pk of a Dundee Sampler for 13 dollars. The IPA was well worth a dollar. Is it great, no. Is it bad, no.

I love IPA's. I was gifted this. Sadly, I had one and gave the rest away. First IPA that I've given away rather than drink. I had great expectations for this because I grew up on and enjoyed Genny Cream Ale.

Pours clear, light amber color. Good head, not much aroma. A slight sweetness gives way to the bitterness of the hops. Mild lacing. I love a good IPA, but this one is relatively bland and unremarkable. It's "just okay."

Dundee India Pale Ale - Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. Poured from the bottle into a pint glass, it's gota two finger thick lumpy off-white head, droopy lacing, and a medium-dark amber body.

Smells like rich malts, not quite roasted, but still very pleasing. I'm also noticing the whole cone hops used in this beer. Not too sharp; nice and clean.

Ok, I taste the exact same components as the aroma. Nothing too sharp or offensive with this brew.

Dundee India Pale Ale's mouthfeel is clean and refreshing. Nothing lingers with this brew.

Overall, a 4.5 is given to Dundee India Pale Ale - Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. This is a fairly smooth IPA that still bring malt flavor to the table. I will buy this beer again.

Dundee India Pale Ale brewed by Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. This brew has an ABV 6.30% India Pale Ale pours out deep golden amber color, with a nice white head. The smell is rich with hops and malts. You also pick up on some grains in the smell . The taste is bitter at first , but a smooth aftertaste. There is a lot going on in this brew. You do pick up on the hops but they are not overpowering at all. This is one of the more mild IPA I have had. Dundee India Pale Ale has a nice balance to it there is nothing overpowering in this brew at all. The mouthfeel is bold, bitter and smooth just the right combination. Over all I'm giving Dundee India Pale Ale a 4.25 out of 5. Genesee Brewing Co. / Dundee Brewing Co. did a nice job with this one.

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.
