Metalchopz (3055) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
From Trader Joe under the name KBC IPA. Pours a clear amber colour with a warm cap, decent retention and lacing. Aromas are very sweet with loads of caramel with a little hops. These are a little more present in the taste... at first, but then the caramel comes back. Luckily not as sweet as the nose, but still a little too rich to be a good IPA.

mR_fr0g (8893) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle at home from trader joes. Mostly clear dark orange amber coloured pour with a sticky grey off white head. Aroma is toasted bread and caramel, dome orange rind and dirty pine hop. Some alcohol on the nose. Flavour is toasted Malts, dirty pine, orange, bark. Palate is semi sweet, medium bodied, highish carbonation. Meh.

Hoppy aroma. Bitter hops with citrus zest, but a finish that trails off very early and becomes bland.

GIJOE (1078) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - OCT 25, 2015
Average IPA. Tastes identical to their pale ale with a touch more hop. Crisp, bitter...decent summer brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 ounce bottle. Labeled as KPC IPA from Trader Joe’s. Pours an Amber orange with a medium-sized rocky beige head. Faint citrus hop nose. Flavor upfront is tangy, toasted malt with a hint of pine and bitter citrus hops. Not very complex or interesting. Dry bitter finish.

Bottle from Trader Joe’s Westport. Pours brown with a thin brown head. not a lot of joy on the nose. solid grapefruit on the tongue with some solid bitterness on the finish. Solid but not spectacular example of the style.

Sebilinz (1752) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle. Amber body with white head. Not very strong aroma of fruits and malts. Taste is a little bit stronger with malts some fruits and hints of pines. Aftertaste is nice balanced between bitterness and sweetness.

bottled - nice amber color with a decent hop character (both in flavor and aroma). Not the best IPA but not all that bad either.
