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.

355mL thanks to Dedicatedtofun! Clear deep orange. Wispy white lacing. Nose is hotel bar soap, intense chemical lavender. Taste is hotel bar soap, intense chemical. Super soapy. Ew. Palate is lemon tea.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper color. Aroma is bright and slightly hoppy with a hint of sweet malt. Flavor is fairly well balanced between floral hoppy and amber malt. Pretty okay but nothing special.

A pretty disappointing IPA. Some pine and grass with a lot of cardboard in the aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color ambrato mediamente limpido con pannoso velo di schiuma bianca. Aroma dolciastro con sentori di luppolo tenuto "in riga" da una robusta controparte fruttata e caramellata; gusto maltoso, rotondo, che evolve verso un finale amarognolo e leggermente erbaceo. Corpo medio, effervescenza gentile, setosa, quasi cremosa. Una IPA piuttosto classica ma decisamente ben fatta, dissetante e non scipita.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
