Metalchopz (3029) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2015
From Trader Joe under the name KBC IPA. Pours a clear amber colour with a warm cap, decent retention and lacing. Aromas are very sweet with loads of caramel with a little hops. These are a little more present in the taste... at first, but then the caramel comes back. Luckily not as sweet as the nose, but still a little too rich to be a good IPA.
