COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Can into a glass. Pours a cloudy amber with a very creamy off-white head. Floral hop aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Combination of hops with very little malt. I’ve had better DIPAs.

A really big can. Smells clean and unnoticeable. Where are the hops? Reddish IPA looking. Too thin yet too maltly at the same time. How is that possible? Where are the hops!?! How is this a double IPA? I’m pouring it out. Life is too short for this.

This is an amazing double IPA. For it’s high alcohol rate I would put this second to "Stones" double bastard. It has a very well balanced feel and taste. I would highly recommend this brew to any with a palate for strong ales. Prost!!!

On tap. Amber color. Cherry taste. Strong alcohol taste too. A very solid D IPA but not my favorite.

April 27th, 2012 - The vanilla (plain, not vanilla bean) version of the Shipwrecked has almost single handedly salvaged what is otherwise a disappointing, and at times gross, line up of beers at Mission Brewery’s brewery. Maybe the brewers recognized they’ve got a winner on their hands, too, because this was the only variant on one of their core beers available. This version, brewed with whole flower columbus hops, departs radically from its standard counterpart. Daffodils and dandelions decorate the aroma, adding a light touch of dried lemon rind. The flavor diverges a little less on the tongue, where it has all the familiar, core components of an IPA, but adds the dry bitterness of mikan pith. The acerbic hops is more attuned to my palate, and as a consequence, I like it more. The subtle touches make it a more complex beer too. For example, herbs like rosemary and sage just barely touch the aftertaste - unexpected, but nice. Overall, the Shipwrecked is a solid beer, and seems to benefit from modifications too.

April 27th, 2012 - If Mission Brewery’s IPA almost ruined the entire brand for me, the Double IPA recouped some of the loss, or revulsion. The smell is concentrated and sweet, with a tang and acidity that I recognize from bright, ripe apples, as well as the darker but no less sugary sweetness of hoisin sauce and warmed honey. Graham cracker adds a subtler sweet scent to the nose, and overall, I like it. It’s many dimensions of sweet, and like a good dessert, synthesizes these into a new, collegial smell. Moderation carbonation greets the tongue, and delivers a strong, consistent and persistent candied strawberry taste (like the pink Starburst) flanked by a moderate boozy burn, more honey, and a singular strawberry aftertaste. Overall, it’s a thick palated beer with a flavor not unlike Honeycomb cereal. Sweet? Yes, and maybe it’s a little churlish with the sugar, but it doesn’t offend, either. More importantly, it’s just the kind of flavor profile I needed to wash away the Bingo Parlor Cigarette Smoke flavor haunting the IPA.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle it’s hazy brown in the glass. Aroma is citrus hops, but the flavor has a lot more caramel malt flavor than I would expect in an IIPA
