Poured from a draft into a pint glass at San Diego Brewing Company on March 16, 2012. Color was hazy caramel. About one finger of head. Light film on lacing on the top. Even amount of cobweb film on the sides.

Got a deep whiff of citrus hops, probably lemon. Fairly balanced but nothing too special overall.

Not too much citrus in the taste, but very bitter. Can really taste the alcohol. Kind of smooth. Lots of different things going on in the taste.

Medium body. Slight texture. Average carbonation,. Bitter, but smooth finish.

Just an OK double IPA. It had its moments but I wouldn’t go out of my way to have another one.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle, from a beer of the month mixed six pack from Vintage Cellar in Blacksburg, Virginia, into a snifter. Pours a nice amber with a medium size head that dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves very nice lacing down the glass. Smells of floral and citrus with slight malty notes. Tastes of sweet citrus and a little bit of alcohol syrup, but not offensively, and has enough bite. Is a medium body, carbonation is right, and goes down smooth. Overall, a very good DIPA.

12 oz. bottle poured into a globe glass, pouring a light amber with half an inch of slightly off white foam. Bright golden in the light just a hint of haze.

Pleasant hop aroma of muddled grapefruit, pine and some peppery spice. Bit of caramel malt in the background and a touch of alcohol is notable on a deep inhale. Hop spice expands with warming to better cloak said alcohol however. And while never grabbing you by the throat with an onslaught of hops, it does entice throughout.

Flavor is moderately sweet with a touch of caramel and a citric flavor leaning more towards orange and tangerine than the nose suggests. Carbonation is medium allowing for a full and creamy feel that still isn't too sweet. Bitterness is a bit subdued however as the malt profile masks the ABV better on the taste than the smell.

Overall a good IPA to have with a meal and with a good lingering finish.

In a sea of big, ugly DIPAs, this once seems suave and debonaire. Sensationally aromatic hop flavors with a large malty taste. Not overly bitter, however, for all the hoppy fireworks. Fills the mouth nicely. So full of malt, but very spicy. Some bitter orange flavor, but not the grapefruit pith. Alcohol provides some heat, but on the whole it is very well balanced.

One of the better big IPAs I've had. I think Mission has a more drinkable approach to their use of hops, which I like. On tap at Mitch's Seafood, San Diego.

This beer has an amazing aroma of extra hops and barley. Ther aroma i sweet and sugary. The problem is that the beer is murky and not very appealing. It poured with an excess of foam and way too much carbonation. The good news is that despite its disturbing look, it is quite tasty and hearthy. You know the hops immediately and the sugary grains are ever present. It will leave a grassy aftertaste, but with double IPAs thats to be expected. Worth trying if you are into Double IPA, if youre not a fan of Pales, definitely steer clear!
