Bomber poured into a pint class. Golden with a tinge of red, minimal white head.
Smells of... fruit loops. For reals. Not kidding. Malty smell in the background, but it is definitely fruit loops. As it warms up I'd describe it as almost sherbet smell.
Taste: Really well balanced beer. Nice mild sweet up front and slowly works it's way to bitter as it lingers on the palate. The bitter is a little off putting to me as it gets kind of grapefruity (not a fan of the fruit). Alcohol is not at all noticeable.
MF- not chewy or thin, a nice texture.
I really wasn't too sure what I was getting into with this, but it was the first offering from mission that I had seen so I snagged it. Though I'm not usually a fan of IPAs, DIPAs really show a lot of variation, and that is definitely the case with this beer. I'd give this beer an awesome score across the board on the simple fact that it has a Toucan Sam fruit loops flavor, but the lingering bitterness really ruins a supremely interesting beer.
