12 ounce bottle from Costco New Berlin. Slightly hazy gold, large foamy off-white head, good retention. Aroma of caramel malt, orange, citrus. The taste is grapefruit, orange, pale malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness. Decent. Onslow (1540) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2017
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Crystal clear light amber brew with small fizzy head that quickly dissipates, though the crystal clear amber look is somewhat fetching. Aroma is very light resin and citrus hops. Maybe very-very-very light describes it better. Taste is extremely light malt up front - like lite beer light - with a underlying weak resinous bitterness. It ends with a very modest hops flourish and some emerging spice and citrus notes. It has the body of a light lager and the taste of a watered down IPA. The result is actually not unpleasant and its an enjoyable drink but it doesn’t merit much of score since the main adjective I’d use to describe this is "watery." I’m hard pressed to believe that this is 67 IBU. But - inoffensive + watery + decent underlying taste = an acceptable brew. ANd at less than a buck a bottle I can’t complain too much. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2016
FWIW - The bottles I have are labelled "Brewed & Bottled by Bricks and Barley Brewing Company, Stevens Point, Wisconsin."
Bottle at a friends birthday party. Not as bad as I had expected for a generic IPA. Aromas were definitely better than the flavor. surferjoe13 (2) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 6, 2016 does not count
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. donandres (687) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - JAN 4, 2016

12FL OZ ($ ???) what the hell is this... do you folks at kirkland even know what an IPA is supposed to taste like. this is utter and total BOOSH. ryanhunter_4 (379) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 22, 2015
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.
