12 oz. bottle into a 12 oz. Samuel Smith nonic.

Appearance: A red-hued lighter peach color with some copper involved, and a nice frothy fairly bright white head that steadies itself fast to the top of the glass at about 1/4" for the duration.

Smell: A bright, bright aroma of hops and fruit: peaches, strawberry, tangerine, marmalade and jam. Tons of fruit all over the place, as the hops and malt seem to be making a beautiful collision here. A lot to take in, especially as it continues to warm.

Taste: Initially and powerfully sweet, but that dissipates into some nice tropical fruit flavors along with some bright citrus hops via grapefruit and lemon, and it lingers with some wet-hop type of interesting leafy funkiness. It may be too sweet for some, but I'd rather have it this way than an insanely imbalanced assault of hops to cover up the sweetness from the high ABV. Plus the flavors linger for a decent amount of time: a good sign of a strong sipper.

Mouthfeel: This is a fairly thick beer, one would think, but somehow it's not too cloying in the end, and though the initial carbonation level seems like it may make this a little syrupy, there's a nice bunch to the back-end that saves it from being that way.

Drinkability: I can dig this. Again, the sweetness may get some folks, but it's a good sipper over at least an hour in my opinion. Doesn't seem like it's as high ABV as it is to me, but then again, now that I'm done with the bottle, maybe I was wrong. Looking forward to checking out more from Mission, as I was definitely pleased with this.
