Poured from a bottle into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark copper amber with a one finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, citrus and grassy hops with just a bit of something vegetal. So far, so good. Flavor is light caramel malt, dry grassy hops with a hint of grapefruit citrus; finishes with an odd resinous bitterness without any supporting pine or herbal flavors. Medium bodied. Looks and smells quite nice, but the hop character is kind of tired. Good hop bitterness, but little interesting flavor. I'm not sure about the age or storage of this beer, but purchased recently; it does have some characteristics of a slightly over-the-hill IPA. Wanted to try the Mission Street beers from Trader Joe's as it sounds like they are going to be replaced with a another brewery. OK for the price and drinkable; plenty of hop bitterness, but I won't miss this.

A: Pours a crystal clear bronze-ish amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of earthy, pine, and herbal hops over the top of a light to moderate aroma of sweet caramel malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of sweet rich caramel malts with the slightest hint of light fruit sweetness as well. That is followed by moderate flavors of hops - lead by herbal then followed by pine and earthy. Light amounts of bitterness which fades relatively quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly creamy.

O: Solid beer at a very reasonable price - easy to drink and enjoyable. Definitely worth grabbing, especially considering the price.

I was over at Trader Joe's today. I got this beer and a couple of others to try. I continue to be impressed by the value and quality of the Trader Joe's beers.

Appearance
Thick off-white head. Decent retention. Very good lacing. Orange amber body. Small to medium sized carbonation bubbles that are quite lively. I was hoping for some cloudiness but there was none. Beside that this beer looks very nice.

Smell
Strong hops aroma that is pine dominant but also has a citrus character. Faint bread-like malts.

Taste
Strong hop flavor. The taste is similar to the aroma, but the hops have a bitterness that is not present in the nose. Quite bitter. Tastes like bitter pine hops with a little bit of grapefruit peel. Faint malt presence at the end.

Mouthfeel
Pretty full bodied. The hops bitterness lingers. There is an oiliness that remains. Robust carbonation but it does not sting.

Overall
A very hops forward beer. High bitterness. The malt body is there in the mouthfeel but is somewhat lacking in the taste. IMO this beer needs more of a malt presence to balance out the hops. Maybe that says more about my views on IPA's than it does about this particular brew. Around here this beer sells for about 70% the price of say Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and comparable craft brews. Good value. Good beer. A little too hops forward for my palate.

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.
