HoppyKev (50) - Redford, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Pours dark goldish, hoppy nose can’t place the aroma. Doesn’t seem well balanced do get the hoppy taste but doesn’t have a large malt backup. Not getting a specific flavor from the bitterness just bitter. The saver for this beer is the $5 price tag at Trader Joe’s

gripweed57 (1048) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2015
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.

DiarmaidBHK (3821) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle from Trader Joe’s Westport. Pours brown with a thin brown head. not a lot of joy on the nose. solid grapefruit on the tongue with some solid bitterness on the finish. Solid but not spectacular example of the style.

Sebilinz (1176) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottle. Amber body with white head. Not very strong aroma of fruits and malts. Taste is a little bit stronger with malts some fruits and hints of pines. Aftertaste is nice balanced between bitterness and sweetness.

raymow (1100) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2015
bottled - nice amber color with a decent hop character (both in flavor and aroma). Not the best IPA but not all that bad either.

Marko (4350) - 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 (6473) - 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 (1009) - 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 (263) - 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.
