The body is very clean with a thin paleness but the head mounts thickly.

The aroma is bitter and floral but gives off a sour fruit. Grapefruit and lemon, pine resin, pithy rind and caramel malts can all be found.

The flavor is more to the bitter herbal but a sour grapefruit rind exists. Deeply underneath a tea leaf malt flavor runs thick. The hops are pithy bitter but not brash and deeply resined.

The feel is slick, bitter but not too astringent.

This was a very inexpensive craft beer but had a lot of good hop bitterness and sufficient malt support.

I've always been curious about these beers at TJ's, but skeptical since they're never refrigerated. I ventured to pick one up, since it was remarkably fresh (~3 weeks old), bottled 12/31/2013, and at $5.99/6 pack it wasn't going to break the bank - so why not!

Poured at fridge temperature from a stubby 12oz bottle into my pint glass.
A - Looks clean and slightly amber in color when held up against light. About an inch of head that receded after a minute or two, and left some lacing as it went down. Good stuff!

S - Oh yes, very piney and floral. Getting some malty caramel as well. Some lemon and grass notes detected as well. This one leans towards the citrusy side on the aromatics.

T - Follows the smell. A very good balance between the malt and the hops. I detect slight sweetness upfront but the hops kick in rightaway and from then on it drinks like a grapefruit juice. The beer finishes dry, with lasting grassy bitterness on the palate. I detect some mint in the finish as well. Just the way I like my IPAs. I imagine this would pair extremely well with some meat dishes - grilled and slightly seasoned. Very well done!

M - Medium and creamy. Impressive again!

O - This is an excellent brew, and at that price I see myself buying this over and over again. Easily compares to some well known IPAs that retail at a slightly higher price point.

3.14/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Color and clarity are good, solid head retention.

Aroma is a bit lacking. Classic IPA scents, with a lot less bang.

Taste is pretty good. 6.1% abv but you would think 5% if you didn't read the label. No complaints though, the kind of IPA you can have a few of and not overload your palate. Light, but and actually a bit more malty than hoppy.

Mouthfeel is pretty good, somewhat standard.

Overall this is a very drinkable IPA and a hell of a value. It says right on the label "Mission Street resides at the crossroads of quality and value", and I couldn't have put it better. You lose a bit of the hop punch that more expensive IPAs provide but it may be worth the reduced price.

Mission St (budget IPA)

A: Great looking! Pours like a STONE. Very hazed body, supports a lasting, thick head, that leaves very sticky persistent clouds of lace. 4.25

S: A little tame. More malt by a hair than hop, citrus, pine, ocean cliffs, herbal. Fine. 3.5

T: Very nice - follows the smell, but more powerful and satisfying. Very juicy balance of citrus, sun-baked grasses, and biscuity malts. West coast style, almost a little watered down? I could drink this if I was on a budget. best budget IPA I have tried. 3.75

M: Nice long flavor arc, good feel, nice finish. 4

Overall: A high quality low cost IPA that I would recommend to anyone, a great starter IPA. Authentic, scores well on craft (look, balance, finish, feel!) 3.75

Agree with this reviewer: "reminds me of UNION JACK at half the price. Super fresh I could see this killing in a blind tasting."

3.84/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance is the best part of this brew. About two plus fingers of cream white head leaves a strong pattern of lace.
Smell is also excellent for this pour. Strong aroma of bread like malts floral grapefruit hops with a kiss of pleasant yeast.
Taste is floral fruity and bitter piney hops. Bready malt support helps soothe the hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is slightly thin but normal for an IPA.
Overall an easy drinking AIPA. Not as bold as many but very close to style IMO.
