    Citra hops obviously plus Cascade and Lemmon drop. 4.9%, 41 IBU. Would buy again.

    Seems the company is actually Gordon Biersch (at least in the West).

    Glad they are making something decent! Costco has been selling their “Signature Craft Beer” 24pk for years (also brewed by Gordon Biersch). 4 of the most flavorless craft beers I’ve ever come across

    Their artwork is good, for sure, but for some reason that I can't put my finger on anymore, I've been disappointed by them a few times. I've never been to their taproom or had any of their beers south of Seattle, so maybe it was a distance/warm storage issue?

    They've got pretty limited distribution up here, but I'll see if I can't find a bottle to change my mind.

    I've never tried Kirkland beer, but I can tell you a store brand to avoid: the Boatswain's DIPA from Trader Joe's. My wife got my a few random singles a while ago at TJ's and this one is best used for slug bait.

    Ah, that makes sense. I probably knew that but was thrown off by the actual company name listed. They used to have a restaurant/brewpub in SD but it closed a couple years ago. Never went in there.

    A friend used to bring a case of that on road trips. Here guys have a beer! Yeah it was pretty tasteless.


    As to the budget IPA topic, I often see 15 packs (18?) of Founders All Day IPA. It's decent enough that I buy it once in a while. My local shop also sells 19oz cans of it 2 for $4.

    I drink the founders on occasion as well...

    Also been fond of the Dales Pale Ale lately, though not an IPA.

    I think there was a reason we were supposed to boycott Founder's a while back. When UT first upped the grocery store alcohol % a few years ago the 15 packs first showed up and were my go to for a bit.

    I also cannot confirm or deny that I have a dog named Oskar Blue. Haven't drank too much Dale's in a while though. Maybe I should change that.

    This one was WAAAAY past its essential drinkability date (it was canned 08/03/20, then it sat in a co-worker's locker for a month before he gave it to me, which was just last week), yet despite having a slight window cleaner aftertaste, I could tell it probably woulda been great had I drank it back in in August 2020...

    So, posting this because I am certain it would have been hella tasty upon its initial release:

    Crux Fermentation Project, Bend, OR

    Ha. My son brought 2 random TJ's store brand beers home. I think that was one. Both were undrinkable.

    This really knocked my socks off. If the cans my LLS had were fresher, I would buy a case. Still exceptional with a 02/15/2021 date stamp, though.

    ^ I was in Kulshan recently just to pick up a six pack. Basically you're gonna be drinking something that collabs with Transition/WMBC or Mt. Baker Ski Area. Pretty awesome.

    Nothing labeled a "west coast IPA" should be that translucent. If I can't see through my beer, it better be a stout or porter.

    That's your standard pineapple juice and cum smoothie, right there.
