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. teamsale (273) - Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2016
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 (527) - Bayombong, PHILIPPINES - JAN 4, 2016
From 12 ounce bottle to wine glass
Appearance: Deep light brown-yellow, white head, a lot, minimal lacing
Aroma: very fruity aroma Taste: lightly toasted grains, slight chocolate Feel: foamy creamy feel Overall: Overall fair beer, not expensive cheap

Bottle in San Diego. Legit IPA, strong grassy hop aroma, moderate bitterness. I was quite impressed, actually. AAEA (266) - California, USA - NOV 1, 2015
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 (307) - 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. beerbaaron (1998) - Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2015
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. slowrunner77 (12037) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 26, 2015
again, a little too malty and generic. about on par with the pale, perhaps a touch better. good price, not good value.
