4.2/5  rDev +14.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours an amber, copper in color with a good amount of frothy head that dissipates to a thin layer of foam and leaves tons of lacing around the glass. Carbonation levels look good.

S: Smells of grapefruit and citrus with a sweet, bubble gum malt backbone. Maybe some tropical fruits, banana and pineapple. Very interesting aroma for an American IPA, not much pine, almost a candy like quality. Very enticing.

T: Taste follows the aroma pretty well with lots of grapefruit, citrus, fruits and sweet malts up front. Even a bit of candy in there. Quite juicy. The flavor turns bitter towards the backend, but not overly so. Finishes dry with a lovely citrus hop presence.

M: Fairly thin bodied for an IPA, this clocks in on the lighter side of a medium bodied brew. The carbonation level is great with a nice, crisp feel on the tongue and there is a good amount of chewiness. Very drinkable.

O: I was pleasantly surprised by this brew as I've never seen it before and wasn't sure what to expect. As a West coast IPA, it packs enough hops to please, but has a definite malt presence and isn't overwhelmingly hopped, which I enjoyed. I also liked the sweet malt, tropical fruits and candy aspect of the brew which I found quite unique for the style. As always, I loved the predominantly grapefruit and citrus quality of the hops (as opposed to pine) which made this one quite enjoyable and very tasty. I look forward to trying out more of this breweries selection as they have more than piqued my interest. Cheers!

This is a tasty IPA from Mission Brewery. The aroma is citrus hops when cracked open and the smell is sustained when poured into the glass.

The flavor of the beer is lightly hop tainted smooth beer. It has a balanced taste with no punishing heavy alcohol or malt taste that seems to hurt some other IPAs. Smooth, drinkable, friendly and a great after-taste.

I poured it from a 22 to a pint glass for reasoned appreciation. Frothy head and a sustained lemon hop flavor. An excellent pairing with spicy vegetarian food.

Color- hazy apricot.

Aroma- sweet nectarine, like a fruity butterscotch.

Taste- Starts buttery and smooth, orange and nectarine notes, finishing mild with a lingering balanced tartness.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted December 2012.
