Draft at Hamilton's in San Diego.

Pours a hazy dark golden orange color with a half finger white head that immediately disappears. Not much in the way of lacing.

Slightly earthy aroma with very muted hop character.  Subtle grass, pine and floral hops with a touch of citrus and lots of alcohol.

Medium bodied with a strong bitter hop presence up front that's quickly countered by tropical fruit and alcohol.  Again, the hops are muted by light fruit and sweet booze.  Hints of apricot,  pineapple, grapefruit and orange peel but it's kind of weak.

This isn't the greatest beer. It is a middle of the road DIPA. It certainly isn't Pliny. It is drinkable and I don't regret buying it. It is lacking any real hop flavor. The best thing about this beer is the mouth feel. It is neither too thick or too thin. Overall, I'd be disappointed if I made this at home.

Mission St.'s Shipwreck is a strange brew, and maybe conditioned by my surroundings, which include nuts and chips and a little of that grounded dust that they line shuffleboard tables with. But the aroma gives off a ground yellow corn scent, with a dusky earthiness, and a smooth cashew note, like cashew butter. The flavor expands on the nut/legume theme with tons of sweet peanuts in the flavor, and that burnt caramel note that comes out of the classic Bit-O-Honey, cloying and large. If you like your caramel burnt and blackened, there's a lot to like about this taste. But I prefer mine milder, which gives the Shipwreck an off-putting flavor.

A- pours a deep almost reddish amber color with a finger and a half of off white head.

S- sugary candied with a touch of toffee hits the nose at first. Some spicy disjointed alcohol comes out in the middle. Some hops drown under the big malt bill. A touch of tropical fruit and grapefruit comes out but quickly gets smothered.

T- very malty brew indeed. Caramel and candied apple flavors hit the palate at first. Astringent phenolic alcohol clashes with initial malt burst. Weak hop flavor gives a hint of tropical fruit and candied orange. Finishes sweet with a doughy boozy aftertaste.

MF- sticky slick mouthfeel with a medium body and light medium carbonation.

This was recommended to me by a clerk at a beer store. Poured into a glass, it is a pretty beer with a notable orangy color and nice head. Very clear. The smell is syrupy, sweet and with some yeast flavor. The taste is too, except worse. It's very boozy and I can hardly detect any hop presence. It does not taste anything like a DIPA to me. I'm trying to be generous in my review because it's possible the bottles were very old, but this is one of the worst DIPA's I've ever had.
