COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale golden color with soft lemon and melon esters and a bready malt body. Dry hopped with Centennial and experimental hops from the Yakima Valley. If you like a hoppy IPA, but don’t always care for the higher alcohol, try an El Conquistador XPA.

I got one of those giant cans because I like a lot of beer in one canister. That’s why I liked 40’s in high school. This is pretty good, for what it is. Al respectably low ABV pale. No need to get into the guts of the profile. It’s tasty and refreshing and holds it’s own in the style category. Compared to the price of a bomber of the same, it’s a clear steal. The fresh taste is pretty profound, making one wonder how the IIPA Shipwreck would fare in a huge can like this. (Mission: please make this happen) It’s also on sale at Costco, which has me pondering the idea of going over there with a pallet jack and stocking up.

Had a definite quality of malty and bitter hops. After the initial sip the bitterness was a primary taste of grassy hops while the malts feel flat. Still it was refreshing and tasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (1018) - Texas, USA - APR 27, 2015
Pours pale orange with a small white head. Smells of pine with hints of citrus. Taste is bitter, piney, slight woody, drying. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and average mouth-carbonation, Mission El Conquistador Extra Pale Ale finishes with a soft lingering dryness.

Leini (1171) - SWEDEN - APR 19, 2015
355ml bottle, consumed straight out. Some fruit botes, but mainly pine. A hint of butterscotch in the aroma but not in the flavor. Finishes grassy. Light palate.

32oz can. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large foamy white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma with a bit of lemon. Bitter, highly citrusy flavor. Lingering bitter finish. I enjoyed it.

zach8270 (3779) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2015
(can - 32 oz) Orange pour with a fluffy white head. Light hops in the aroma. Not much else. Flavor is pretty much the same. Some light hops with a touch of sweetness. Not bad but not much to really rave about.

FunkyF (283) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2015
Flaska från SB. Dimmigt gul med luftigt vitt skum. Suspekt doft, sorachi? Väldigt vattnig men en del beska i eftersmaken.
