On tap. Pours a murky burnt orange color with a thin layer of head. Lots of lacing. Aromas of sweet citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is similar to the nose, but not nearly as sweet. Bitter tropical and citrus fruit flavors. Boozey. Bitter, floral aftertaste. Some malt flavor but more bitter hop flavor than anything else. Lightly carbonated. Overall, decent Imperial worth having every once in awhile.

3.8/5  rDev +3%

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a duvel glass.

A: pours a slightly hazy dark orange amber with about half a finger of white head that dissapates slowly and leavs some spots of lacing.

S: sweet citrus over a caramel malt backbone, deffinatly smells like the big brother of their regular ipa, perhaps slightly more malt dominant. I wish there was a bit more hop aroma here,

T: much like the tye nose, a bigger more malty brother of missions regular ipa.... tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, over a sweet caramely malt backbone. The pine comes through thick on the finish... Giving a deep piney caramel note... I wish overall the hops were a little more pronounced throughout.

M: medium/heavy with low/medium carbonation, a bit slick and oily, coats the mouth with a bit of resiny bitterness. The alcohol is fairly well hidden here

O: a decent dipa, I wish overall the hop profile was a little more pronounced, however without a bottle on date I'm not even positive as to how fresh this brew is. Certainly not a bad brew, but I prefer the regular mission ipa.

3.9/5  rDev +5.7%

Big sweet juicy tropical fruit on this one. Lime, orange, guava, passionfruit. It just smells great!

Pours a hazy orange with a slightly off-white head that laces very nicely and doesn't dissipate too quickly.

Flavor is big on citrus fruits, tangerine and lime for the most part. Again, as I described the aroma, I'll say this is very "juicy". There is a nice breadiness to it as well, which rounds it out nicely.

Moderate carbonation and a full body, this beer packs quite a punch at just over 9% ABV. It's syrupy, but not overly thick. It drinks quite well, and makes you thirst for more.

This is an amazing beer...I love the smooth finish...sweet yet no smack of alcohol or bitterness...well balanced for that much 9.25% alcohol...I can't really find any typical disappointments to this beer...the only criticism is that I prefer a slightly more pronounced hop in the citrus flavor...I would serve to my buddies with pride.

3.93/5  rDev +6.5%

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

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.

Fresh bottle in San Diego...and what a huge difference it makes.
Appears a orange toned amber with a fluffy white head that slowly fades. Scattered bits of lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of danky weed, heavy citrus, flowers, perfume, and vibrant hop resin.
Taste is of the aromas with an herbal hop blast with sugary malt. I really like this beer. The herbal and earthiness comes through more as it warms.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, warming, bitter leaning, and mostly balanced.

3.2/5  rDev -13.3%

Pours a lighter fizzy 1/2 finger head that sticks around a bit at least, nice layered lacing, over mostly clear nectar orange with a slight reddish hue.

Nose has some bittering hops, plenty of malts, sweet malts with some caramel and bready toasty reddish malts. The hops bring some candied like aromas, with light candy orange and earthy syrupy almost hop extract like, and hints of candied tangerine and clementine.

Taste comes sweet, quite sweet actually, lots of malts that just bombard the taste with sweetness and even some syrupy flavors, a bit of a maple like flavor as well that comes with the reddish malts, caramel, toffee, and nougat. Sweetness tries to balance the booze but doesn't quite go far enough, or in thsi case I think too far that the booze comes out the other end... uhhh didn't mean it that way... but the booze still comes out with a warmth and little tingle. The hops are mostly bittering, fairly bitter but not enough to balance the malty sweetness, light candied tangerine and slight clementine like citrus, earthy hops, but not much of any of the flavors, mostly just bittering that even somehow gets a bit astringent. The finish is still fairly syrupy and sweet, it tries to dry but just can't, with a big astringent bitter bite that doesn't want to go away, even with the sweet malty mess, just a bit of booze on the finish as well.

Mouth is heavier bodied, some warming and tingle booze, decent carb, bit syrupy.

Overall not very good, a mess of a beer, way too overboard on the malts, sweetness, and booze, but still somehow finds a way to get too bitter and astringent, and the hops don't add much except the bitterness. Quite undrinkable.
