portableparty (2292) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2012
12 oz. bottle to snifter. Pours hazy amber with a soft soapy off white head that dissipates to a spotty film and soapy collar. Aroma has some pine grapefruit and spice and some caramel malt. Taste is all of the above with the hops being bitter and piney with some grapefruit and spice with a malty finish. Palate is medium and finishes chalky dry. Very nice IPA for $5.99 and 6 pk.

$1.17 bottle from Trader Joe’s, Charlottesville. Hazy orange with a soft off-white head. Heft floral hop aroma, along with some bready malts. Flavor is heavily leaning floral, folloowed by mild citrus and bread. Quite good. I’m ashamed of myself for ignoring Trader Joes’ beers for so long.

Bottle at a swim party. Not a great IPA. But that’s also partially because I’m over the style and it’s gotta be really good to be good.

kevinsenn (2019) - 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 (721) - 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 (2576) - 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 (2452) - 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 (451) - 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.
