Unfortunately picked up a bottle that is 11 months old at TJs. Despite that, this is not a bad PA and I imagine fresh it is pretty good value.
Aroma: other than some oxidation which translates to a stale aroma, there are is mild bready sweetness from the malts, and a subtle earthy hop aroma as well
Appearance: Pours a hazy medium amber similar to say a Sierra PA. the head is minimal as is its retention and lacing almost non existent.
Taste: very nice balance between the malts and the earthy hops and their bitterness.
Palate: medium body, with semi rich texture, moderate carbonation and minimal astringency.
Finishes short and dry with a faint but astringency on the palate alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2016
12 oz bottle from Tmoney99 from notes. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, light toasted malts, floral, herbal, grapefruit citrus hops with some earthy notes, watery a bit at the finish, ok. markas101 (2529) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2016
Bottle, Ann Arbor, MI via Trader Joes. Hazy medium gold. Bright hop aroma, citrus and passion fruit, some resin. More tropical flavour, honey and a medium pepper finish. asedzie (835) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle. Pours golden with relatively dense head, nice lacing. Nose light pine, just the slightest touch of passion fruit, some grain. Flavor is simple but quite rich for a session pale: light caramel backed by one-note hop resin - a floral pine note that lasts long into the aftertaste. matthewjk (1138) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 22, 2015
Another great value buy from TJ’s in-house brand. Can’t complain about a crisp, clean, and little spicy session brew--packs a lot of flavor for a low ABV’er. Servings: 12oz bottles.

If I were to rate by looks and smells alone, Mission Street Pale Ale would be damn near perfect. This Pale Ale has a golden-orange shade and a snow white head. Aroma contains grass, cannabis, and sweet malt. The big aroma makes the understated taste a surprising disappointment. Well, maybe disappointment is a bit harsh. Mission Street Pale Ale has little bitterness and would be unlikely to scare away hop shy individuals. While I admire the balance, I want more hops. Still, for the price, you could do a lot worse. trapped (3774) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow with small foamy white head, floral hops aroma, high carbonation, floral hoppy taste, longish finish. Nice floral pale ale. bartzluke (598) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 19, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into nonic pint. Golden, sightly hazy, moderate white head. Weak nose-- a little hay and citrus. Light body. Fairly crisp. Taste is light-- more citrus. Orange rind. All around drinkable and inoffensive. solidfunk (9729) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2015
Easy drinking and inoffensive. Pours gold with foamy initial head. Light bitter finish. Mass market taste. Light citrus and decent backbone. Bottle from trader Joe’s.
