Light yellow in color and not very hazy/unfilterd for this type of ipa, whatit lacks in color, it more than makes up for in smell and taste..floral and piney in smell, the taste is bitter hops and a little bit of malt..kinda shocked that the abv is as high as it isas this drinks like session ipa..very dangerous

Fresh from the can into pint glass. Bottom of can reads "Stranger Danger 11/17/17." Paid $10 for one 16 oz can at Beer Table WTC. If you're into east coast IPA's then this beer is for you. I am the harshest of critics when it comes to IPAs and this one is damn near perfect. Hops, flavor, bite, mouthfeel are all executed exceptionally.

KCBC has been fairly underwhelming for me. While I am not one to write off a brewery, I do become leery of some... So i only bought one can of this, an imperial IPA coming in at 8.3% abv with a canning date of 11/17/17...

Medium-pale gold body, hazy but not opaque, few fingers of white head, lots of lacing...

Gotta be their best offering, at least to my tastes... This is as close to an Other Half beer as they've gotten - blind-folded, i could easily mistake it as such... A real fruit-smoothie juice bomb of a beer - just ripping with ripe tropical impressions, citrusy high-points, and some orchard fruit impressions as well... Totally NE-style, plush and lush, smooth and soft... Bitterness is mild, sweetness is moderate... On the heels of Other Half's Space Daydream Imperial Oat Cream IPA, I find it comparable in quality...

Tall can - 11/17/17

Cloudy, yellow squash, nicely developed and lasting cap n collar, lacing all on point

Sweet sniff of cherries, mango. over ripe summer fruits.

Just plain old super delicious going on here....ripe tropical fruits, with again cherry , melon, guava

Highly enjoyable on the palate, with carbonation on point and mouth feel registering near perfect.

Hopped up finish providing the sweet/bitter balance

Well done KCBC....go get some
