Marko (4301) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 27, 2015
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!

ogivlado (6341) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 7, 2015
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.

bkurtz (1006) - PERU - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle - KBC IPA - Pours a clear amber with a typical head. Different aromas of tart citrus and detergent. Taste is like the aromas with some bitterness and a soapy finish. A very different IPA for me, but drinkable.

FireGlider (215) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 21, 2015
Clear amber color with small white foam. Aroma of citrus and some floral hops, but aftertaste is malty. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with medium bitter finish. Really not bad IPA, but it requires some balance in taste.

Ed5388 (2538) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2015
12oz bottle (Kennebunkport "KBC" IPA) thanks to Pizz5116. Pours a clear amber color with a finger of foamy off white head. Aroma of faint citrus, rotted peaches, and a hint of nail polish remover. Taste is better, but not by much. Rotted citrus, lemon zest, bitter pine, yeast, and caramel malt. Meh

mile (3426) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 23, 2015
Bottle. Dark golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and tropical/floral fruitiness and light honey, some grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and tropical/floral fruitiness, some grapefruit - light citrus hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel, light tropical/floral fruitiness, some grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Sweetish IPA with caramel. Really nothing special.

blankboy (6578) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2015
[Bottle (12oz)] As ’KBC IPA’. Pours a hazy, very bubbly dark golden-orange with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is fruity and hoppy, bready, sweet and alcoholic -- odd and a bit candy-like. Fruity, bready flavour along with a touch of alcohol and an almost harsh moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. Decent enough that I can drink it, but I’d never buy it again.

AWISLguy (1753) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2015
From Total Wine in Stuart. No bottle date. Amber pour with an off orange head Fruity sweet aroma with some sugar and some toffee. Sweet fruits in the taste, toffee, with more simple sugar, some earth and a bit of citrus. Rough. Finishes sweet and slightly bitter. Thinking this was old, but also sure I’ve had before, and it was not that great then. 12.4
