trapped (715) - New York City, 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 (2288) - 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.

From bottle. Clear amber color with a white head. Aromas of caramel, malt and fruit. Caramel flavors with a light hoppy finish.

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 (2137) - 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.

DrinkinWell (228) - - AUG 31, 2013
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!

Andy_ (632) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2013
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.
