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.

beerguy101 (5294) - Newark, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Sampled on 1/29/2011. This Imperial IPA pours a medium copper orange color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head, with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is grapefruity, citrusy, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are fruity, sweet and caramel. The hops are citrusy and grapefruity. Nice balance between the malts and hops. Decent carbonation. A medium bitterness IPA. It is almost a west coast style IPA, but the hops are not that much of an in your face assault. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is bitter.

Bottle (in NZ). Nothing wrong with this, but just a bit non-descript. Was left wanting more. ’Meh’.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2010
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy orange with small, dense, slick beige head. The aroma is tangerine, a little bit of cotton candy, grapefruit, lots of sticky hops, and a little bit of fresh biscuits. The flavor is packed with hops, grapefruit and other citrus mostly. It has a very assertive, quite refreshing bitterness. There is a bit of bready malt behind all the hops. It gets woody toward the finish. Quite a tasty beer.

bubbleflubber (1854) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Pours a cloudy orange-amber into the glass with a light ring of suds that leaves trace soap lace. The nose is absolutely exquisite, spot on for pineapple upside-down cake.... just gorgeous. Flavors of caramel, pineapple, grapefruit, rind/peel and finishing with a peppery pine hop. The citrus on this is quite nice, especially the aroma, which really adds to the pull. Very drinkable for an Impy IPA, the alcohol just slightly shows up after the end of the finish. Complex and full of substance, the mouthfeel is bold with a deep body, but goes down the palate very smoothly. Nice take on the style.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Mission Brewing Shipwrecked IPA Pours golden orange. Not hazy but oily in appearance like the Uberhoppy. Head is a little thin, but retains well. Leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus hops, pine resin and caramel malt, but none too overwhelming. Not super bitter, smooth oily mouthfeel. There is some alcohol and junipery pine notes, but not much there, there are better beers in this style.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours an amber off white head and decent lacing. Faint pine and floral hop tones, honey pine, light sticky sweetness and cracker malts. Oats and honey and a bit of malty caramel. The hops seem lack luster and this reminds me more of a brown ale with the bitter and dominant malt bill.

fear025 (213) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Aroma:Hugely sweet malt smell. A little bit of slightly citrusy hops. Appearance:Deep amber in color, not too much head. Taste:The foretaste is full of deep rich hops. Pine in the foretaste turns to apricot in the midtaste. The hops are nicely balanced with the sweet malt. The aftertaste is mostly bitter hops. Palate:This beer has a medium to heavy body There is a little hot alcohol there, as well as astringency in the mid to aftertaste. Overall:This is a very well done beer. It’s a little too heavy to be sessionable, but it’s got great flavors all the way through.

Though it’s pretty with nice head, this beer is not balanced nor is the aroma anything to write home about. Sticky and acrid is the term I would use to describe the flavor. Piney and resinous is the aroma.
