3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 12oz. A hazy, golden beer with some micro floaties, topped by a dense, off-white head. Sweetish nose with fruityness. Orange, too much crystal malts, some cheesy notes and a touch of sugar in the aroma. Full body, almost sticky on the palate. Oranges, sweetness, crystal malt and some generic fruityness in the flavor. Too low on bitterness compared to the sweetness. Lasting sweet and finally bitter finish. Sort of disappointing considering where it’s from. 130810

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
