Mixture of light orange and amber colors, 1/2" white head. Aroma was cascade hops.

Caramel, crystal malt, high bitterness. The 90s ipa playbook. Lacking hop flavor beyond grapefruit bitterness. Alcohol not really covered up given the deep malt bill.

I don't know how these guys survive in San Diego. Their stuff is pretty average, which is all fine and dandy anywhere else, but in SD? This is way below average stuff.

Day 3 of my Cali road trip/west coast ipa binge. Post Mt. Manuel hike beer at Maiden.

Rusty brown color with minimal head and no retention. Smells like grapefruit and pine with a little honey sweet malt. Tastes like it smells. Big, searing bitter is the most notable characteristic.

A-Hazy yellow orange colour with an off white head

This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a gentle bronzed yellow to orange color with a finger's worth of foamy white head. Dissipates at a nice pace and leaves some messy somewhat stringy lacing.
The smell had some citrus and pine running over a cool sweet caramel malt, seems like it's pretty well blended.
The taste took those blends to be mainly sweet but the bitterness is trying not to take a backseat.
The mouthfeel has about a light to medium sort of body with a nice crisp sessionability about it. Carbonation seems to even run fairly light allowing the IBU's to show up a bit more in the harshness feel.
Overall, my first Mission beer, hopefully, it won't be my last, I'd have this again.
