look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Light copper color, slightly hazy. Pours with half to one finger head that dissipates quickly. Leaves very little lacing in my glass.

S: Lots going on in there. Smells a bit dank and hoppy from the start (maybe some grapefruit fruity as well?), but I also get some bready malts in there.

T: Starts hoppy, and finishes hoppy. There's a milt bready malt throughout the whole taste, but it seems to start with spicy hops (and maybe some really mild sour fruits) and finishes with more earthy bitter hops. Mission's website lists it at 75 IBU, and it tastes at least that. Tastes a bit boozy at 9.25% abv.

M: A bit thicker and slower. A full mouthfeel, which is probably what you want out of a double. Carbonation is very good.

O: Decent brew. If I could get my homebrews this hoppy and light-colored, I'd be ecstatic. That said, the hop-profile just isn't my gig; I'm not a huge fan of the spicy start. Someone out there will love it though.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Picked up a single at Total WIne at the end of March for $2.99.

Beer poured a murky orange with not much head.

Nose is muted hops.

Taste is not bad but a bit uneven. Sweet malts and pine and citrus hops are present but without much continuity. Alcohol is warming in the finish with each sip. Suspect i have an old bottle but no way to tell without a freshness date.

Mouthfeel is full, smooth, and satisfying.

Overall a decent beer but in a style with many outstanding beers i am not sure i will buy this again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.

A: Deep copper color, nearly clear. A big burst of carbonation with a good size white head directly after the pour, but both quickly subside.

S: Resin, pine, more subdued grapefruit with a good amount of sweet bready malts and mild caramel aspects.

T: Resin and pine bitter, maybe some citrus pith hops up front. The malt sweetness comes back nicely and they both fade together after the swallow, with the hop bitterness lasting a bit longer.

M: Medium body for style, lower carbonation than most, alcohol noticeable but well-masked for this ABV.

O: Pretty unobjectionable, but pretty forgettable at the same time. It strikes me as a good exemplar of the new "average" for American DIPAs. The aroma could use some help - pretty low on the nose for a DIPA. I'm not going out to buy a 4-pack (or 6, or whatever they come in), but I wouldn't mind drinking some on tap somewhere if it's what they had.
