Pours deep amber with a large, lasting head.
Aroma of pine, fruity confectionery, floral hops and some clean malt underneath. Also some toasty malt.
More interesting malt as flavours along with harsh pine and grassy hops followed by hot booze.
Carbonation could be higher.

Sadly, the last of the bottles from my Scot care package from San Diego. Man, was this fun. Hat’s off to my new friend in Cali.

Shared this bottle with my Father-In-Law as he loved IPA’s/DPA’s.

Slightly hazy, dull amber color. Thick head sits atop the beer. Slight lacing.

Aroma is certainly citrus focused. Also a pretty good amount of sweetness.

Decent, frankly... not great. Is this an east coast beast lost on the west coast? Pretty balanced and fairly sweet. Hops are a little muted. Made worse since I saved this for last since it’s a DPA. 2 previous standard IPA’s were much more hop focused and appeared to be bigger beers.

Slightly sticky. Just below creamy.

Not one I would chase.. But as I often say. Glad to have tried it.

A: This poured a nearly clear light copper with a bit of off-white head.
S: It smelled like orange and grapefruit and sweet caramel.
T: It tasted like candied apricots and copper and caramel, with some grapefruit. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was slightly thick with some carbonation. Decent body.
D: This was decent, but not as good as the standard Mission IPA. It had a nice scent and body, but wasn't super delicious. The body was ok, and the alcohol was decently hidden, so it was easy enough to drink. Nice to try once.

Pours a golden hazed amber hue with a creamy dimple laden two finger ever present head and some bubbly clingy lacing,on pouring the bottle I immediately am assaulted by the resinous pine,gooseberries and toffeeish malts,the mouthfeel is full bodied with moderate carbonation and the taste definitely packs a punch of stringent bitter piney resinous hops,some herbal harshness,a sweet cameo of toffeeish malts and finished with a berry bittersweetness and overall it's average nothing over the top and better ones out there cheers.

I had two goblets of this yesterday (10AUG13) at Whetstone Station. It was served in a heavy goblet, at about 10-12oz, for $4.95.

The goblet (which, on its own, could be used to do serious curls with) was filled with a clear, medium copper offering. Carbo was steady, the head was thin, white and wispy, and lacing was decent. Aroma exhibited some good caramel, with some solid hoping present. It felt quite smooth, and was a nudge above medium for body.

Flavor had a healthy base of caramel and toffee malts, contributing a nice level of sweetness. Hops were abundant, with lots of rindy, resiny, piney action, plus a suggestion of mint. The malt never faded, so it was rather well balanced. The ABV was quite evident, though. Pretty good, all in all... Zum Wohl!

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into an Allagash cervoise glass.

A: Two fingers of tight head. The colour is a brilliant ruddy amber, clear with some bubbles. Very pretty.

S: Fruity hops. Pine resin. Straightforward, but powerful.

T: Not bad! Somewhat of a hop bomb -- very bitter (75 IBU) and initially astringent. However, there is nice balance provided by the malt base and the heavily fruity topnotes. The maintaste is long and full, with an enduring, grapefruity aftertaste.

M: Substantial. A bit of chewy malt. Not as much carbonation as you'd think.

O: I like DIPAs quite a bit, and this is no exception. Very nice beer. Recommended to hop lovers. At times, noticeably strong. Don't let it warm up.

Poured into a snifter.

3.5 A: Moderately hazed light amber color. One finger of creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a short ring of lacing is left.

3.5 S: This smells about the same as their regular IPA. Sugary and citrusy hops in the form of orange, mango, and papaya. Bready yeastiness. Caramel maltiness with a light toastiness. Booze is well hidden.

3.5 T: Sugary hoppiness and citrus mentioned above. Caramel and toasty malts. Bready yeastiness. Less bitter and more sweet than the regular IPA.

3.75 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Nice creaminess and super smooth.

3.75 D: Pretty good brew. This has a bigger malty component that the regular and it makes it more balanced and smoother.

A-Deep garnet with golden highlights. A thick off-white head slowly reduced to a thin cap and left copious swaths of lace.

S-Deeply rich but muted malt sweetness with some telltale American grown C type hops poking through the malt layer. Touch of alcohol burn finishes this one off.

T-A big and burly malt bruiser with spicy citrus hop notes struggling to make themselves known. Not what I typically look for in a DIPA. Good, yes. Great, no. Warming alcohol makes an appearance in the finish.

M-Medium-heavy body, this one is a quite the heavyweight of DIPA's without being overly sweet or sticky. I like the feel as it makes you feel like you are drinking a beer with pendulous BALLS!

D-I liked it to an extent but the more I drank the more weary I became with it. A decent beer for sure but it simply brings too much for me to enjoy in a DIPA. If this were a RIS I might think differently but it's not so....

Bottle

Thanks for this one, Gordon!

Clear orange and auburn with a thick, persistent off-white head. Lines of lacing left down the glass.

Citrus (lots of orange flesh and skin), sweet caramel and toffee, and alcohol heat combine for a strong, powerful aroma.

High bitterness, mild citrus undertones, bready and sweet (caramel) malts, and warm alcohol burn.

Medium bodied, though oily and with a hot alcohol presence throughout.

Decent and drinkable, but doesn't stand with the best of the bunch.

Deep honey-amber with a hushed soapy top. Hop hazy and standing quite tall in that there pint glass. 3.5

Oily hop aroma with pine needle and grapefruit rind notes. Touch of floral hop, but mostly sweet dankness and honeyed caramel. 3.5

Fruity malts showing some apple-y character whilst the hop attack brings out twiggy pine and juicy grapefruit. Hint of pineapple and leafy floral hops. Not as resinous as the nose, but still pretty oily. Sweet, and not overly bitter. Excellent full flavor and combo balance. 4.0

Smooth and devious. Well-masked strength. Convincingly sessionable sitting in this pint glass. Yowsers. 4.5

Me + a Shipwrecked = one happy kiddo. 4.0
