Mission Rye-Ghteous IPA
I quite enjoyed this. The aroma is definitely grainy and grassy and has some rye I guess. Orange red color. Flavor is a mix of bitter hops, rye and some fruit maybe. Nice.

Mission Shipwrecked Double IPA
hazy orange to amber colour, large, dense off-white head; aroma of tropical fruits, floral-honey notes, pine resin and marmalade; taste has the same notes as can be felt in the aroma, but unfortunately over-dominated by a somehow "rude" hoppy bitterness; based on its aroma, I expected something more complex

Mission Sorachi Ace
Nice complex aroma with green tea being the most dominant. Coppery pour. Interesting bitter flavor that is different from other IPA’s. Finish could have had more follow through.

Mission Dark Seas Imperial Stout
Puur zwart bier, olie-achtige textuur. Dikke mokkakleurige schuimkraag die langzaam inzakt tot fijn laagje. Roast, pure chocolade, espresso, leer, tabak. Lange bittere afdronk. Enige minpuntje : had tikkeltje dikker/romiger mogen zijn. Bier is niet dun, daar niet van, maar de smaak eist een dikker mondgevoel. Voor de rest prima stout.

Mission Sorachi Ace
Bomber from Trader Joe’s in Davis, CA. Pours gold with a large foamy white head. Mild aroma. Includes light lemon and something herbal. Med body. Flavor is lightly tropical, lightly lemon/citrus and something green/leafy/herbal. Could well be tea. It’s bitter beyond moderation, but it’s not all that harsh. Flavorful and tasty.

Mission Mosaic & Idaho IPA
Type: 22-oz. bottle Glass: Clear 16.5-oz. Belgian ale tulip From: Costco in Grossmont Center (San Diego), Calif. Price: $5.99 Purchased: May 15, 2017 Consumed: May 27, 2017 Reviewed as: American IPA Misc.: No bottled on date Not a fan of Mission or Idaho 7 hops, but a huge fan of Mosaic hops. That was enough for me to have my wife pick it up for me on a recent trip to Costco. Hoping this one surprises me. Poured a pale-to-gold semi-clear color with four fingers of rocky white head. A few bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass. Excellent layered foamy lacing. Excellent retention. (Sight - 4.25) Lots going on in the first whiff, almost competing to get out. Got tropical fruit punch, passion fruit, sugary citrus, spoiled fruit, hints of caramel candy squares, trashy Mosaic late, wet dank pine and melon. (Smell - 3.50) Tasted a bit better than the nose, but still similar. Fairly bitter. Also spoiled fruit, caramel candy squares, tropical fruit punch, earthy wet pine, melon, cantaloupe, hints of mango, trashy Mosaic and dank resin. (Taste - 3.50) Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long, juicy, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.75) Not a huge fan of this one, probably more the Idaho 7 hops than anything else. Not terrible though, but probably would not have again. (Overall - 3.50) 3.57 81 B

Mission California Craft Lager
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours brassy gold with a transient white head. Really light hop aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is lightly bready with hop that seems fruity. Not very bitter; not entirely dry. A pleasant thing with more taste than the macro lagers. Not exciting at all.

Bottle. Dark and strong. Can see why they say port, but I’m getting pumpernickel too. A little sticky, a little sweet, but mostly a good robust stout.

Mission IPA
Our India Pale Ale exhibits a complex hop aroma, largely due to the generous usage of Cascade and Centennial hops, as well as a subtle malt character from the various malts used to achieve the wonderful balance exhibited in a world-class IPA. San Diego has become world renown for the wonderful and flavorful beers produced here – and India Pale Ales are no exception. Our national award winning interpretation of the style reflects both the history of IPA and the American variation of this distinct beverage. We hope you enjoy it! 66 IBU More of a sweet flavor than super hoppy ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mission Hop Burst Series Batch #1
Sampled on draft this beer poured a bright golden color with an enormous fluffy white head that lingered forever and left excellent lacing. The aroma was sweetish with pine, cactus and grapefruit. The flavor was bitter and tangy with notes of pine, cactus and a bit of cat pee. Long dry finish. Moderately full bodied. Meh.

Mission Dark Seas Imperial Stout
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Aromat typowy, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku dominuje gorzka czekolada, z nieco zbyt ciężką ściągającą goryczką na końcu - niestety psuje to trochę całość i obniża pijalność. Ogólnie - całkiem ok, ale czterech liter nie urywa.
