Bottle from this trader named Joe. Orange amber with small, spitty white lace. Nose shows some tropical fruits underneath some sweeter malt, the aromas are there, but they are slightly muted by the malt. Just noticed the bottling date. 4/11/12. Thats a lot older than I prefer my IPA’s but sometimes that hard with beers like this. It’s actually not terrible for being a little over 2 months old. Would like to retry fresh.

Whoa. For an IPA you can get on the cheap (thanks Trader Joe’s), Mission Street is a damn fine creation. Mission Street pours amber-orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is dank with hops, but you can still detect the caramel malt. Taste follows the aroma. Sweet malt, citrusy hops (grapefruit juice, orange peel, orange juice, lime), and pine. Allegedly, Firestone Walker brews this for TJ’s distribution. If that’s the case, I can definitely see why this brew is excellent. If not, it’s solid piece of craftsmanship. Next time, I’ll just get a six-pack...

bergstaden (1650) - Røros, NORWAY - MAY 7, 2015
Deep golden with a white head - hoppy aroma with fruits and citrus - Good malt to support a good hop flavour with citrus and hints of pine - Hop finish with citrus that ends dry - This was good

euniceradio (150) - Colton, California, USA - APR 13, 2015
Pours amber. Excellent frothy white head. Aroma is mostly caramel malts. Taste is caramel malty sweet. Good medium mouthfeel. Finish is grapefruit pine and orange. Pretty standard IPA but heavy on the malts. Good bev.

Pours amber with a white head. Hop, floral, caramel, fruit and malt aroma and flavors. Medium body and carbonation with a light floral hop and caramel finish. Pretty standard.

Hazy gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Very light and sweetish malt. A lovely floralness that carries mild violets and a touch of candy fruits. Hops are medium orange and orange pith with lesser grapefruit and pine. Smooth finish. Noble hop like spicy linger. Lovely, lots going on and super drinkable.

12oz bottle - For some reason when I shop at TJ’s, the IPA is always out. This time, for $5.99 a six-pack and it’s on the shelf..yeah....a no-brainer. To the beer starts out with a nice sniff of hops. Nothing really specific or that I could zero in on, just hops. It’s rather odd that nothing really stands out, but it’s like smelling a bag of hops just taken out of the cooler. Flavor has medium bitterness to it, with a very light (thank you) crystal malt profile. The guys at Firestone let the hops be the star, and the beer is better because of it. The malts are there, make no mistake and it’s a bready-like sweetness to it. Mouthfeel is nice, evenly balanced. Nothing to get worked-up over, but a solidly built beer, easy to enjoy on a warm March afternoon and the price is oh-so right.

Bottle at Andrew’s today, 11.05.2014. Clean IPA, medium-low hop bitterness, almost no aftertaste - easy drinker and cheap as hell apparently. Definitely wouldn’t mind another. Didn’t get a good look, no glass.

rosenbergh (8437) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2014
12 oz can. (Trader Joe’s) Greenville, SC.
Clear amber golden colour with a small frothy white head. Fruity and sweet hops, mild bitterness and some maltiness in the aroma. The flavour is some bitterness, fruitiness and some floral hops. Quite drinkable. A bit boring.

Hazy orange with a thick white head. Pine but mostly citrus. Medium bodied and affordable.

crossovert (9092) - Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2014
355ml bottle. Amber appearance nice head and nice lacing. SMell is sweet with fruit resinous hops. Flavor has a sweet icing like component to it, infact a very sweet ipa. Not sure on the dating of this but it doens’t grip me.
