3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mission Pizza as "Mission Position IPA." Pours hazy amber with a medium creamy off-white head that leaves great lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus, pine resin, light floral, and a touch of tropical fruit. Flavor is the same, with more prominent floral notes. Lightly sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a somewhat oily mouthfeel. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a deep golden orange color with an off white head. The aroma is malty with some butterscotch, toffee and tropical fruit. Very malt heavy. The flavor is the same. Toffee with some pine bitterness and hints of pineapple. Smooth on the palate. The malts get in the way of the hop character but otherwise it has no real flaws.
