A - Slightly cloudy copper with a big bubbled head. S - Grapefruit, some floral spice. Pretty weak nose. T - Clean grapefruit across a sweet buttery malt. Green apples, white grapes, and pineapple. Hops provide good balanced but are muted. Very clean and easy drinking. Not spectacular but a good. Very drinkable. Serving type: cask

In a world where there are stellar examples of IPA too numerous to count, a beer like this has no reason to exist. It is an off and metallic rendition of the style and lacking the vibrant hop character that is the hallmark of the style. It is clear red in color and its head is of mixed bubbles and long lasting. This has a mildly floral hop character and a good bit of metallic, basic bitterness. This is rather light bodied but still a bit sweet, which cloys just a touch. This is on the low end of drinkable, I suppose, but I do not think that is adequate at all.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color. Has a hoppy brown malty taste. Grassy and easy smooth drinking with a nice aftertaste

sawbuck (325) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Under KBC label. Aroma of pine and citrus. Hazy orange in appearance..tan head fades quickly. Sweet malt up front...nice backbone. Follows with a citrus laced bitterness. Average in bite. Finishes with a nice balance of sweet and bitter....bitterness lingers a bit on the tongue. Not complex, but very solid for the price.

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.

Copper pour with minimal head. Some hops and pale malt in the nose, with some yeast and hopcitrus in the taste,with a medium to light palate.

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 (4247) - 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
