Got this from Trader Joe’s marketed as KBC IPA. For an IPA this one is very unflavorful. No real aroma, flat, boring taste.

Tasted at the Fayetteville Foam Festival. This was a disappointing beer. Not much flavor. Meh.

Sammy (8359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
Had the KBC IPA version from Trader Joe’s. Always give an IPA an even break. Fast dissipating head on yellow body. Hop aroma. Fizzy carbonation and light mouthfeel. Not that flavourful.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber with an average biege head. Aroma of malt, grain, florals, and citrus. Taste is similar. Just an average IPA.

burg326 (3530) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle, aromas of stale hops, light bitterness. Flavors are water, stale hops, grass and some caramel. not the best beer from them, meh...

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 21, 2013
Bottle (6,2% ABV). A clear medium amber beer, with an average sized, frothy/creamy, lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin, pine needles), with perhaps a hint of tea. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, average carbonation, fairly long finish with moderate bitterness. Disappoint as an IPA (too sweet and malt oriented profile), objectively speaking an OK beer.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Labeled as Kennebunkport IPA from Trader Joe’s. Pours amber wiht a fully receding tan head. Notes of coarse hops, resin, light sweet malt. Medium bodied, lightly resinous with lively carbonation. Not a fan of the hop flavors in this one.

pottygok (433) - Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Aroma: Fain hints of floral and herbal hops. Appearance: Clear amber with rich white head. Taste: Light sweetness with heavy bitterness in finish. Very unbalanced and back heavy. Palate: Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Tastes stale. Not skunked, just stale. The flavors aren’t marrying and it finishes quickly, with no lingering hop flavor.

Clear, medium-dark amber, long-lasting head, swirls of lace. Taste is surprisingly sweet for an IPA, never giving in to the hops - hops are present, but can’t quite push through. Decent, drinkable, sessionable, just not much of an IPA.
