    Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a solid small sized cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is fresh cut grass and resin mingle with biscuity malt and a floral hop finish. The taste has a citrus element, with grapefruit and lime lingering throughout the profile. There's a bready malt component that is fairly nondescript. The finish is slightly bitter and dry. The mouthfeel is moderate bodied, with carbonation a dash on the high side.

    looks like there is two listings of this beer, one under a different paso robles brewer, also at 4.8%. pretty unassuming pale ale. clean and refreshing. lacking in complexity with a tiny pricetag. seems like FW has either really cheap mediocre beers or really expensive really good beers.

    All lemon pledge in the nose, pine and lemon. Very pale yellow body, too pale for style, with very frothy had with good lace. Mouth is very thin, almost watery, Flavor not well rounded lemon and pine with really no malt present, a touch of awkward bitterness at the finish, goes a bit sour. Lack of malt is bad for the style.

    Another decent brew from Trader Joes. Clear amber, light hoppy nose. Palate is initially malty and nutty at first, but taste balances out to a decent hop finish. EAsy session beer, good price and solid flavour.

    A pleasant tasting brew with prominent citrus overtones, pours with a haze consistent with the pale ale family. Somewhat short lived hoppy aftertaste that cleans up the beers flavor follow through.

    Pours a nice clear amber with a thick, white and none too persistent head. Aroma is strong and fairly hoppy with a lemony undertone, more like an IPA. Flavor has malt and hops nicely balanced so neither dominates; there is a slight undertone of citrus. Texture is smooth, slightly tingly, and a bit on the watery side. Overall, fair to middlin'.

    This brew poured a yellow color with a white head, medium amounts of carbonation. The aroma is strongly of hops and nothing else. The outhfeel is thin and watery. The flavor is typical for pale ale, delicious hops. overall it is a slightly above average pale ale.

    A vigorous pour produces a two-finger thick, light tan crown of froth that floats on top of a brilliantly clear, rich copper colored brew. A hop focused mix of pine and citrus greets my nostrils upon the first whiff of the aroma. Typical grapefruit notes and candied orange peel but also a lemon zest note and a touch of apricot preserves make up the citrus component. The pine note, while noticeable, does not play as big a role as the citrus-hop notes do. The malt plays a supporting aromatic role adding a hint of caramel, some biscuit notes and a touch of dusty, crushed malt aromatics in the finish.

    Somewhat dry up front, but it picks up a caramelized malt sweetness as it moves through the middle to the finish. A bit of a zippy carbonation offsets a somewhat creamy mouthfeel. The beer has a solid, biting bitterness to it that lingers on in the finish. The bitterness is not clean, but instead has clinging menthol notes and a touch of pine-like astringency coupled to it. Hop citrus flavors of grapefruit are accentuated by the subtle malt sweetness; mainly though the beer is a bit too dry to really fully express the citrus notes in the flavor. Bitter, herbal hop notes play the dominant role in the flavor, but there is a significant, if supporting malt character here as well. Towards the finish flavors of pale malt, toasty crystal malts, caramelized soda crackers and even a touch of toasted bread notes are all noticeable at times.

    A tasty Pale Ale that is quite light and easy drinking. I could wish for a touch more citrus-hop focus in the flavor, but that would mean more of a malt presence and I really do like how easy drinking this is.

    This American Pale Ale pours a light orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to small sized white foamy head. Aroma is citrusy, malty, sweet and slightly hoppy. A light to medium bodied American Pale Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are citrusy and slightly bitter. Kind of lemony, yet there is a hop bite. Light and refreshing. Its kind of fruity and sweet and a little under hopped. It a little mild and bland but would be a good beer for a hot summer day. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    i like em hoppy. this is great because although it's high on hops, it's not high in alcohol content. In fact, it's one of the lower alcohol per hops ales out there. most high hoppy ales (IPAs) are also higher than average in alcohol content, especially if they are super hoppy. So, me being a hophead, it's nice to have a nice reliable, well crafted, hopped-up ale on hand, and at a very friendly price i might add, to have around to suck on with out getting mushy after drink a few. regarding the price, it's friendly only if you purchase it *as* mission street pale ale at TraderJoe's (4.99/6pk) rather than as Firestone Pale Ale (8.49/6pk). Now, if only i could find out where to purchase "missioin street's 'double barrel' ale". hehe
