full discosure: i am trying this for the first time tonight after drinking a Stone IPA and a New Belgium Ranger IPA, both of which are superior to this brew.

poured from a bottle into a large tulip glass, it developed a HUGE head, that settled to about 1" thick. Color is a nice amber, like most of the ales sold at Costco.

there is almost no hops in the aroma or on the tongue. It is simply a decent amber ale with nice malt notes, slightly sweet, but not an IPA in the sense that it doesn't have any of the hop notes that you would expect.

hope that someone at Costco is working to improve their "handcrafted ale" series, cuz right now, there's no real draw here. I admit the price is reasoable, but I would rather spend a few more bucks and get an IPA that tastes like an IPA...

this beer had a strong taste much like a rusty nail. and not the good kind with scotch and drambuie. very strong metallic taste overwhelmed the hops. maybe it was just this batch but even though the price was right I think it was my first and last case.
