FuzzyBrew Review: Dundee India Pale Ale

October 19, 2010 By: mike Category: FuzzyBrew Review

Dundee India Pale AleBrewery: Dundee Brewing Co.

Location: Rochester, N.Y.

Style: India Pale Ale

ABV: 6.3%

IBU: 60

Fuzzy Rating: 3 out of 5

On the label for its India Pale Ale, Dundee Brewing Co. prints this simple message: “Be bitter.”

They’re not kidding.

This IPA (delivered from NY to Memphis, via Chip and Roz) has a mild aroma of sweet malts and grass, but its taste is bitter, with a decent amount of astringency in the finish.

Dundee uses Columbus hops for bittering and Chinook and Willamette for taste and aroma, and the result is a beer that’s not particularly well balanced.

It’s certainly drinkable and undeniably crisp. And as you make your way through a pint, you may pick up on subtle characteristics of spice and citrus.

But my taste buds wanted more flavors from this beer. And it was, ultimately, too dry for my taste.
