Wow. Best beer I've tried of all the Trader Joes house brands. Glass? No stinkin glass, right from the bottle after a humid, warm NJ summer day. Hmmmm, smells nice. Good fruity hops and very pleasant. First swig is a suprise. Reminds me of some of the great brews I was throwing back in California recently. Interesting to find out Firestone Walker is brewing this IPA. That's great street cred. Mouth feel is nice and carbonation is just right. Beer is very east to drink and reminds me of a west coast Harpoon IPA. More hops and a tad more malty sweetness. Finish is medium and doesn't promote any bad lingering bitterness. Overall, very pleased. I will certainly make it a regular in my fridge rotation. At $6.49 a six pack, quite a deal.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle poured into pint glass

A: Mediumish copper depending on the light, clear, head settles to nice covering foam and sticks pretty easily to the sides of the glass, not in big sheets but just enough

S: Slightly sweet smelling, it makes the hops seem fruity, but judging by the flavor they aren't really, more of a light pine/resin aroma combined with the slight malt sweetness, a little mild for an IPA

T: Same sentiments as the aroma, good malt honey sweetness to support a moderate hop bitterness, the hops again are sticky and resiny, pretty good flavor, but the bitterness is not where I expect it and the flavor could be turned up a bit

M: Not nearly as dry as some IPA's, just a little bit to keep the palate clean, easy to drink

O: A good "kind hoppy" beer when you wants something thirst-quencing and easy to drink. Not much of an IPA though, especially when compared to the better versions of the style. I'm definitely the first to admit that I don't like all the imperial beer craze, but this tastes more like a pale ale.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a translucent copper. One and a half finger khaki head. Retention is moderate. Lacing is better than average. Carbonation is lively, with fairly large bubbles racing to the surface.

S: Fairly deep malt. Lot of fresh pulped grapefruit. Splash of cinnamon, little bit of caramel. Bit of herbal quality in the hoppiness. Nose is malt dominant.

T: Entry of cooked bread and toffee. . Juicy mid palate of grapefruit pulp transitions into grapefruit rind and citrus oil with a bit of herbal quality. Bruised mint on the finish and a touch soapy. Not exceptionally bitter, but enough to really balance things out.

M: Fairly light for an IPA. The malt weighs things down a touch, but the relatively low abv keeps things from being too heavy.

O: While not an the top tier of IPA's, this is still a no frills representation of the style. And at literally 1.13 a bottle after tax and CRV, it may be the most beer for your buck you can find anywhere.
