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.

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.

arone12 (922) - Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2010
Pours a dark orangey brown color with a nice light brown head. Smells of hops and brown sugars. Taste is a bit sweet. Nice bitterness to this beer with some spices mixed in. Good local brew to tyler’s neighborhood that I am glad I picked up.

ben4321 (4385) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2010
Location: 22 oz bottle from Shop Rite - Hoboken, 11/15/10

Aroma: The nose has some peach, grapefruit, mango, pine, toffee, and a little bit of earth
Appearance: It pours a mostly clear amber-orange color with a small white head and drips of lace
Flavor: The taste has sweet/ripe fruity notes, some toffee malts, and a nice hop backing
Palate: The body is on the sticky side, and it certainly has that West Coast IIPA feel to it
Overall Impression: I’m always excited to walk into a store and see a new San Diego DIPA, in my opinion the best IPA locale in the country. This one isn’t by any means on the level of the best that city has to offer, but it is a pretty enjoyable beer none-the-less. I just really enjoy that San Diego IIPA feel, and this beer has it. Nice stuff.

Bottle shared at the Coffee District. I would suggest dropping down two reviews and reading Hopscotch’s post. He always explains things better than I do...
