A pretty good IPA, though not in the style as other IPAs. Pours nice with a good head. Fairly complex aromas and good flavor.

sharkbcr (103) - Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Had this on tap. Color was amber / brown. Slight head and malt aroma. Taste was banana like and can’t decide if this was intentional or the taps needed cleaning. Overall disappointing.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose with caramel. The flavor is mild fruity hops, super sweet grainy earthy malts. Odd. Lemons. Tea. Cost a buck.

RichardGretton (4227) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle@Manhattan Cafe, Lecce, Italy. Strongly coloured amber beer with a strong light brown head. The aroma is yeasty and lightly hopped. The flavour is well hopped with a good degree of bitterness and some gassy, yeasty and maltiness. Overall a nice American style IPA with plenty of hops but not enough roastedness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

ronaldtheriot (1192) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 29, 2014
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

Copper pour with white head. Aroma has toasted malts and sprucey hops, slightly herbal. Medicinal, with water cracker malts. Finish is spruce and a touch of citrus.
