Reid (1803) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2013
12 oz single labeled as KBC IPA from Trader Joes in Salem OR. $1 per bottle and says 6.2% alc. Nice enough pour, darker,burnt orange body,slightly hazy, nice thick cream coloured head. Aroma of spicy,lemony hops,floral sweet. Some caramel malts..not too bad. Taste is a bit of a let down though..fruity,orange and sweetened figs..very little bitterness from the hops but they are there.Not horrible though. Mouth feel is very thin even for style..slight bitterness in the end. This is drinkable enough but a bad IPA.

DialSquare (2307) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Labeled as KBC IPA from Trader Joe’s. Clear orange pour with thin white head. Aroma is malt mash. Taste is medicinal, metallic, grain, floral. Close to a drain pour here. By my standards, saying something.

trapped (602) - TURKEY - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle. Light amber color with beige spongy head, floral hops aroma, light hoppy taste mixed with doughy flavor, lightly carbonated, long finish. The hops aroma is a bit weaker than expected for an IPA.

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 3, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joe’s in Glen Ellyn, IL. as alias KBC/Kennebunkport IPA. Poured to a Czech-pils glass with a lightly hazed, orangy gold color, with a frothy/cakey off white/cream colored head, and patches & spots of clingy lacing. The aroma was a decent, but not that expressive IPA nose of light grainy dankness, a touch of caramel sweetness, a bit of breadiness, and resin & citrus notes. The taste included some malty creaminess, moderate, earthy & rindy astringency to the lingering hop bitterness, and a hint of soapiness, in a no more than medium body, with fair carbonation. A fairly tasty, average IPA offering.

UncleStSimons (6) - Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2013 does not count
There is a reason why this beer is available at Trader Joes only in Florida. Using the remaining 5 for my wife’s unwanted friends’ husbands. Or the neighbor that never leaves.

jbruner (1972) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with thin ring of off-white lacy head. Aroma is sweet caramel grain, slight floral hops, taste follows. Too sweet and no bitterness, not a good IPA.
