Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Nice IPA that, for the price, is flat out as good as it gets. A case of very solid craft IPA for $22? Sold. Nice nose of malts, grassy piney and citrussy hops, and the taste is very malty with a some sweetness and a wide array of greatly balanced poignant but not brash hops, so that the add and carry the flavor while the malt kicks in afterward to coast 50/50 with the hops after the swallow. Great beer, and I must say being a broke person who loves $12 six packs just got a whole lot easier with this $6 option that is as good as any IPA sixer.

kevinsenn (1971) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
6-pack from Trader Joe’s. Pleasant enough fruity floral aroma with light caramalt. Taste is good, not great. Grassy and citrusy American hops, medium bitter finish. Great for the price (about $1.10/bottle!)

tfontana (663) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Trader Joe’s. Aroma is bready malt base with fruity hops, mild pine and resin. Appearance is minimally hazy light brown with attractive sparkle, finger-width white fizzy head with decent retention and lacing. Taste is mix of sweet and bitter fruit and bread. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture and average to lively carbonation and dry, bitter fruity finish. Overall, some complexity but not overly so; lasting impact of hops is more for bittering than flavor.

jcr (2544) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a off-white, frothy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, resin, caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness and resin taste along with grapefruit rind, citrus. Short of a resin bomb because of the malt backbone.

Lots of flavor (bitter) in this beer. I had this side-by-side with a Mission St. Pale Ale, and I liked the stronger, bitter flavor in the IPA better: big surprise. This is a solid IPA.

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 (2328) - 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 (412) - Worthington, Minnesota, 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.

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.
