Pours a copper color with a nice foamy head and sticky lace. In the nose there are modest hints of tropical fruit. Fruity and juicy taste with a moderate hops bite. Medium to light bodied.
As with other Trader Joe beers, this one although not spectacular, is actually pretty tasty.

(copied from RB) Lots of flavor (bitter) in this beer. I had this side-by-side with a Mission St. Pale Ale, and I liked the stronger, bitter flavor in the IPA better: big surprise. This is a solid IPA.

Big disappointment. Glass: large wine glass. The "new" Mission IPA is now brewed by Four + Brewing in Salt Lake City. Thin, almost flavorless. Where are the Hops? Abv down to 5.8. Price for 6 pack $6.99. It was pretty decent at $4.99 a 6 pack when Firestone was brewing it.

I'll be honest on this one, my wallet definitely affected my rating. For the price there aren't too many IPA's (although it drinks like a pale) more satisfying. World class beer? Not in the least. Delicious beer and a great value? I thinks so.

Thin head. Smells is pretty bad. Initial taste is pretty nasty and bitter. Meh

This stuff is so underrated, especially considering the value. $6.99/six in OH.

Lots of hops but missing the citrus notes of the really good IPAs. Closer to a hoppy pale ale.
