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).

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. Its not unpleasant, just very simple.

Bottle; poured a glowing amber type color with a fairly large light khaki head. Aroma of bread and fruit, fairly straightforward. Flavor had a bit more going for it. Alot of fruitiness, but not much of a hoppy bite. Some earthiness that lingered. Ok.

Clear copper pour, with an off white head. Sweet malt, piney hops, light citrus, and grain. Easy drinking. Not very good of an IPA, but a good mass buy from Costco for a party or something.

Bottle - Overall a dissapointing beer that is only barely better than the huge macros. I would have expected some hops and bitterness but what I got was just bad. Not really worth the work to describe in detail, just avoid.

My first of the Costco-beers. A friend had a mixture of these in his fridge the other day. Intrigued, I grabbed this one. A dark orange/copper color with a small off-white head on top. Nice floral aromas with citrus and a dry straw -like scent on the finish. Definitely some hoppy-ness in the nose. Crisp, moderate heft bolster this beer well. Good feel to hold up to the bitterness thats to come. Flavors of bitter hops, semi-sweet orange slices, dry grains - all meld together to create a simple easy-drinking ale. The hops arent the most flavorful here, but they get the job done. I see these beers as being great gateway beers for people newly into craft beer. Theyre simple and tasty, and the pricepoint will appeal to the masses as well.

Bottle. Beautiful appearance: deep orange colour, clear, with a thick dense gold-tinted head that shows excellent retention. Aroma is sweet fruity caramel. Flavour is again fruity caramel with an astringent bitter note in the finish. Very thin, anemic hop presence. Oh well -- looks pretty!

Floral peachy and piney weak aroma. Typical pour and appearance. Taste like bitter stainless steel. weird stuff. Probably good for a upper middle class grad party. Do they still drink at grad parties?

Kurtos (196) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2013
Aroma. I can smell pine, grapefruit and caramel Pours, a nice rich copper colour. Taste. Flavours are of Pine and Grapefruit in the hop flavours, followed by Caramel and a creamy bubblegum flavour in the malt flavours. Overall. A quality beer and a good change from other american ipas ive tasted.
