I had one of these yesterday while watching football and was very impressed with the flavor. Drank very smooth and lots of hoppy citrus flavor. Overall a great quality brew especially considering the price. I picked up a couple at my local Trader Joe's and wish I had gotten more. If you like other brands like Sweetwater or even Sierra Nevada, you'll like this one as well. Do yourself a favor and grab at least a sixer. You'll thank me later.

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.
