Poured into a pint glass.

Pours an burnt orange brew with a thick chunky white head. Lots of great lace and great head retention. A very good looking brew.

Brew smells of grapefruit hops and some bready malts. Good hop profile.

Brew is a solid; not the hoppiest IPA by any stretch, but good solid flavors and mouthfeel are represented. Solid grapefruit and almost a burnt malt. Good feel and passive drinkable finish. A entry level solid IPA. Good.

Good brew from the Dundee line. A solid brew.

Served in a pint.

A: pours a darker golden yellow color, clear, with a short white head with minimal lacing.

S: hops predominate, wheat, bread, barley, sort of faint aroma

T: basically wheat and grains with a tinge of hops, bit lacking, dull

M: kind of over carbonated, carbonation is out of proportion with the flavor

O: not horrible, could better. would have it again due to it's cheapness and drinkability but its just a run of the mill beer

Got a single of this in a mixer sixer.

Not bad looking, coppery and clear with a decent head and some lacing.

Nose is kinda weak. A little hops and some maltiness but not terribly impressive.

Taste is somewhat hoppy but indistinctly so. It doesn't have the bomb characteristics I've come to expect from IPAs. It's just kinda weak on flavor, although pretty high on bitterness. The malt backbone is indistinct, though some caramel does come through.

Body is well carbonated and crisp, pretty easy to drink despite my feelings on the taste.

Overall it's drinkable but I'm not impressed enough to want a whole six pack of it.

Poured cold from the bottle.

This beer poured a nice, amber colour, typical of IPAs, with virtually no head, also typical of most IPAs. Subtle hop nose with a slight citrus scent. The taste is not as up-front with the hop bitterness, like most IPAs, but has a great citrus-hop flavour. Very balanced and very enjoyable because of the focus on flavour over bitterness. There is a faint peach/mango/tangerine flavour to it that is quite enjoyable.

Would I buy it again? Yes. Unlike the rest of the beers that Dundee makes, this one I would buy again.
