A style of beer curiously born on the foggy shores of Father Junipero Serra’s first founding mission. Our own vigorous entry is one rebellious IPA, quick on the trigger, and brimming with a bounty of hop ingenuity. This is a big, bold, brazen beer, a restless vision of a new America.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pours hazy orange with a fleeting sudsy white head. Malty aroma with a touch of alcohol. Sweet malty flavor with a bit of a hop finish, but not as much as I’d expect from a double IPA. Nothing particularly wrong with it... just underwhelming.

bookman10 (861) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Pours a cloudy amber, with little head. Aroma includes rather muted hops, malt, and floral notes. Flavor is primarily notable for the hops, but there’s a lot of sweetness there, too, in the malt undertones. Tropical fruitiness and citrus notes abound. Very full, resinous mouthfeel. Finish is rather bittersweet. Alcohol content is well hidden.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Pour is slightly hazy orange with a frothy cream head and great lacing. Sweet malty, grapefruity, vanilla, caramel, somewhat goopy, grassy, and orange peel in the aroma. Taste is orange peel, fruit cake, grapefruit, bread, somewhat earthy, spicy hops, bready, and doughy with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Meh.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 This is my first purchase of Mission. I dug the label so I decided to give it a try. Golden amber color short foamy white head. I smell all the typical and a lot of them. A lot of citrus and resin. Taste is assertive. There’s a good amount of IBUs in this but I like it. I think its a good double ipa. A bit strong but still drinkable.

Aurelius (4937) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2013
Decent label, a bit over-considered, on a standard US longneck. Foggy, dark maple colored brew, almost white head which dissipates. Vibrant, fruity aroma, very sweet and candied. Simply stated - very good. Pineapple, general sweet caste, ample bittering, a little boozy. A peppery feel all across the tongue, medium heavy body, marmalade hop finish. An incredibly balanced, but characteristic beer. Exceptional. After two beers, this brewery is on my radar as one to watch. ABC, Betton.

Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a deep amber red color. Taste is hoppy and malty in one. Very drinkable. Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

porkdiggity (108) - Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottled. Pours a brownish gold, low head and lacing. Pleasant aroma of raisins and grass, with alcohol smell thrown in. Flavor is raisins, a touch of floral, then grain and alcohol. You can definitely tell its high test by the aroma and flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Pours clear medium brown. Tastes like malt and sweet syrup and molasses. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like raisins, caramel, and alcohol.
