2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear dark amber color with a medium sized frothy off white head that doesn’t last. The aroma and flavor has lightly toasted malt, grains, earthy hops and a mild citrus component with a dry finish. Medium body. There is not much hop bitterness to this and that is disappointing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
KBC IPA has a thin, cream-colored head, a clear, bubbly, orange-copper appearance, and a slight lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, fruity, toffee candy. Taste is of caramel candy, citrus pith, English hop bitterness, and sugar, with a background of bread crust. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and KBC IPA finishes crisp and semi-wet. It is certainly an unusual IPA and most definitely NOT of the West Coast style. Overall, this oddity is interesting and enjoyable. Its mouthfeel and finish are lager like. RJT

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ratebeer tells me this is bottled and marketed under more than one name. I had it as Kennebunkport IPA, purchased at Trader Joe’s. The color is a medium amber, it’s slightly cloudy and has a little foam. The smell isn’t very good. Reminds me strongly of boiled cabbage. That sums up the flavor, too, although there is also a mild caramel in the finish. I won’t buy this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brew and amber in colour. Hops and caramel dominate the aroma although it is reduced and seems to be filtered. Medium bodied brew with a fast finish and dry and bitter finish. boring for the style.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with small white head. Aroma is faint citrus. Heavily resinous, grassy bitter flavor. Maybe a bit oxidized. Light bodied, a bit watery with bitter aftertaste. Wouldn’t recommend this.
