Light amber and minimal head. Smells of hops. Tastes of hops and grain. This is not complex but if you ever want to let somebody know what hops tastes like give them this. It’s not unpleasant, just very simple.

Good ale for a buck. Stone Brewing doesn't have anything to fear but it is as good as Goose Island and better than Henry Weinhart.

West coast version. 6.9% abv. Bottle. Pine and citrus aromas with a sour malty smell as well. Flavor is sticky pine, citrus, and molasses. Average thickness. Not great but not bad.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden with a thin white head and minimal lacing. Smells malty, some molasses, light floral. Tastes a bit off, somewhat fruity, a touch of grapefruit, approaching average. Light bitterness. Mediocre aftertaste that lingers.

Bottle in San Diego. Legit IPA, strong grassy hop aroma, moderate bitterness. I was quite impressed, actually.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 bottle poured at home. Pours a copper color with a thin head that died quickly. Smells like hops, but not like other IPA’s...quite weak. A bit of carbonation and a slightly bitter finish. Not great for an IPA but drinkable.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Clear light orange with a thin soapy white head. Aroma and flavor has off notes (like all the Kirkland beers I’ve tried so far) Mainly a fruity, unfinished, green beer note. Biscuit and caramel predominate over weak hops. Mild bitterness. Hops are grapefruit, earth, and floral. Semi dry and soapy. Too sweet. Just not very good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
again, a little too malty and generic. about on par with the pale, perhaps a touch better. good price, not good value.

Middle of the road IPA. About the best you’ll get from a Costco product. Whatever.
