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.

Banksiz (27) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Slightly malty nose, not hoppy, slight fruitiness. Pours a coppery amber. Pleasant bitterness, but no true noble hop flavor. Good finish, a slight better harshness. Overall, a good brew and a bargain at its price point at Trader Joe’s. Won’t win any gold medals, but I could drink this every day.

ronaldtheriot (1247) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Mission St. IPA has a thin, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, somewhat bubbly, orange appearance, and a little bit of lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of piney hop resin, and the flavor is of that, plus sweet white bread. Bitterness is moderate. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Mission St. IPA finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and refreshing. RJT

nakedwhendrunk (2095) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a deep amber colored body with a one finger white head. The head lasted a good half minute and leaves some minimal spiderweb lacing. The smell had some hops forward with some pine and malty/bready aspects coming slightly as the beer warms. The taste had a good combination of malts and hops. The palate sat about a medium on the body with nothing harsh on the tongue other than a normal American IPA bitter feel, fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a pretty good beer which is easy on the wallet. Though its nothing to scream about, it gets the job done as far as a decent priced American IPA.

Bendrixian (1108) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2014
Clear and amber colour with a fat bubbled white head. Very hoppy aroma with citrus and lighter pineapple and pinecones. On the palate it is bitter enough and classicially styled if a tad boring for the style. Decent.

Mep3222 (487) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Floral hop aroma and caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt with a sweetish finish and bitter on the sides of the tongue. Full flavored and pretty good. A bit on the malty side, but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
