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.

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.

You can’t get more down the middle than this Ipa--but you won’t see me complaining about that. This is a bright orange beer. It’s had is long lasting and foamy with lots of patchy lace. There is big citrus and pine in the nose asking with a bit of tropical fruit. This is full bodied and a little bit sweet which highlights the fruity notes from the hops as well as a touch of lavender. There is a touch of toasty malt character witch comes out in the long resinous finish. I could drink this all day, well done beer.

"the best of the mission st beers. definitely not a standout in a talented ipa field, but a nice budget pick. floral and spicy hops with a firm malt backbone. for a buck, can’t go wrong here at Trader Joes."

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.

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
