2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a brown, copper color. A bit malty with weak hops. Overall, this is yet another boring beer from Trader Joe?s. When will I learn to avoid their beers? Answer: after drinking this one. Down the drain it goes!

Clear copper coloured beer with close to no head at all. Faint aromas of hops, mostly bitter taste. Alcohol comes through surprisingly lot although the ABV isn’t that high.

Not much going on here. Pretty bland, but enjoyable enough. Good to drink on a hot day.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Got this from Trader Joe’s marketed as KBC IPA. For an IPA this one is very unflavorful. No real aroma, flat, boring taste.

Tasted at the Fayetteville Foam Festival. This was a disappointing beer. Not much flavor. Meh.

Had the KBC IPA version from Trader Joe’s. Always give an IPA an even break. Fast dissipating head on yellow body. Hop aroma. Fizzy carbonation and light mouthfeel. Not that flavourful.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber with an average biege head. Aroma of malt, grain, florals, and citrus. Taste is similar. Just an average IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (6,2% ABV). A clear medium amber beer, with an average sized, frothy/creamy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin, pine needles), with perhaps a hint of tea. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, average carbonation, fairly long finish with moderate bitterness. Disappoint as an IPA (too sweet and malt oriented profile), objectively speaking an OK beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Labeled as Kennebunkport IPA from Trader Joe’s. Pours amber wiht a fully receding tan head. Notes of coarse hops, resin, light sweet malt. Medium bodied, lightly resinous with lively carbonation. Not a fan of the hop flavors in this one.
