Average IPA. Tastes identical to their pale ale with a touch more hop. Crisp, bitter...decent summer brew.

12 ounce bottle. Labeled as KPC IPA from Trader Joe’s. Pours an Amber orange with a medium-sized rocky beige head. Faint citrus hop nose. Flavor upfront is tangy, toasted malt with a hint of pine and bitter citrus hops. Not very complex or interesting. Dry bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottled - nice amber color with a decent hop character (both in flavor and aroma). Not the best IPA but not all that bad either.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sea Dog India Pale Ale, brewed by Shipyard in Portland, Maine. 5.7%. The Loop Hotel, Zagreb, courtesy of and shared with Hrabren (thanks!). Golden body with a white head. Sweet, peachy malty, sugary perfumey aroma. Bitterish taste, perfumey, notes of honey and bread, light gum, herbal, nicely balanced, drinkable and tasty even feeling the ravages of time. And you gotta love the label!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 355ml. -from Pivoteka Zagreb as Sea Dog India Pale Ale; 5.7%ABV. Probably this is right one. Dark golden (almost cooper) coloured, small off-white head, fruity nose. Moderate malty, biscuity, fruity hoppy and some floral notes with pretty strong bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Slightly perfumed but pleasant.
