This classic handcrafted ale, brewed with generous amounts of American hops, including Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo has a complex character and is very hoppy in both flavor and aroma. By using barley malt, Munich malt and crystal malt, this IPA is a delicious medium bodied beer bursting with flavor. A true India Pale Ale. Contract brewed for Costco by the Gordon Biersch Brewing Company under the brewer name Hopfen Und Malz (for the west coast market) and since mid 2009 by Matt Brewing as "New Yorker Brewing Co." (for the east coast market).

Not good at all. Possibly the worst ipa ive ever had. Tastes more like old style with a slight hop presence. Glad i didnt buy a case of this swill.

12 ounce bottle at the Niner game. Drinkable but nothing special. Very little bitterness.

HighlanderOne (1167) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Poured from bottle. Faint aroma of hops, gas and sourdough. Looks like typical IPA. Floral and grapefruit hops, bread. Sour aftertaste. OK but needs more hop presence.

Pours a clear copper color with a one finger off white head which fades to thin lacing. Aroma is of sweet toasted biscuit malts, caramel, pine, and a little citrus. Taste is not as good as aroma and is primary of slightly stale sweet biscuit malts, some caramel, a little citrus, and maybe the fainted pine. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy, but also watery mouthfeel and a semi dry, slightly bitter, short, finish. overall, a below average IPA that might be good for the money and for a company like Costco, but not something I would drink on a regular basis.

life is too short to waste drinking scudge like this. costco beer is cheap because it’s nasty. only a short stumble up from industrial beers. avoid.

A little bit of hops, heaviest of which is Cascade. Full aroma, but a bit of a messy finish and uninteresting aroma. Drinkable, but not preferable.

Pleasant hoppy aroma. Taste has is similar to the nose but has added caramel and nutty flavors. Bland, but not as bad as you think it will be.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Mild citrus and caramel aroma. Still, bright orange color beer. A good dose of sweet malt, bitter without being very hoppy. Flush, easy drinking body makes this a stronger session IPA. For a wholesaler’s brand, this isn’t bad.

Not as bad as the ratings. Great IP at Costco for the money, cheap hoppy, yum!

Bottle 12 oz. Clear mahogany/copper with fair beige head that fell quickly. Smell is of overcooked, buffered down malt with plastic and a touch of weak hops. Flavor is weak, overcooked malt with min hop flavor but a noticeable, mild hop bitterness. Not good but not drain pour either. I bought the 4 style case to drink with sauerkraut and hot dogs. It will suffice.
