12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Pours slightly hazy copper orange color. A one finger of an off white head.

S- Pine, cat piss. A bit of a cinnamon and clove as well. Not what I would expect from an imperial IPA.

T- A big bitterness at first. A very floral hop profile. Grassy, onion notes and spicy garlic. There is also some pineapple and mango. A strange, plain malt backbone A slight clove spiciness, somewhat christmassy. More bitter then flavorful. A strange IPA.

M- A bitter sting and a decent body at best.

O- Disappointing. An odd take on an IPA

This is the second of three Missions I have accepted for this weekend. Like the blonde, I like this one. It has the right color and plenty of head.

It has enough aroma so you know what's coming. Somewhat boozy aroma, but no funky artifacts. The taste is like the smell. Not quite syrupy, but plenty malty. It's a pretty good balance overall. The aftertaste is somewhat boozy too.

I might buy this again but the $3/bottle price tag will probably have me looking elsewhere.

Pours a dark orange with gold/amber accents and a two-finger head that quickly fades down to lacing.

Citrusy hops upfront with only a touch of buttery malt underneath. Hop-dominant, just as I like them.

A slow-acting shot of bitterness drenches the tongue with a strong touch of grapefruit. Tangy. Spicy.

Alcohol warmth leaves a satisfying warmness in the belly with hops on the breath. Whew. Better hops than garlic.

Good slow-burnin' DIPA for fans of the West Coast style.
