Mission Berried Treasure
Strong berry aroma. Golden color with a white head. Tasted like a Wit beer with a lot of berry character; rapsberry and blueberry. I don’t care much for this one. Notes: On tap at Aces & Ales (Jan ’17)

Mission / Alpine Don’t Act Like You’re Not Impressed
Hard to not act impressed because I am very much impressed with this IPA. Aroma is delightful with the amount of hops bursting forth. Appearance is what you would expect from and IPA but the taste is where this beer steps up with wonderful spruce, citrus and other tropical fruits breaking through. Definitely recommend this to all my friends in San Diego.

Mission Peanut Butter Dark Seas Imperial Stout
The smell is peanut, chocolate, coffee, classic light brown head and dark color. The taste different than most other peanut butter stouts that have popped up over the last few years, this one has that lactose/milk stout taste to it. However, this is a hell of a nutty beer I mean after the swallow you are left with a taste that you have eaten a bag full of peanuts at the Dodgers game!

Mission Peanut Butter Dark Seas Imperial Stout
Pours black with a huge, foamy mocha head. Aroma has a good bit of nuttiness/peanut butter...dark chocate and a touch of anise...light soy sauce. Flavor is loaded with dark chocolate...sweet first but quickly bitter...peanut butter is present but overpowered by bitter roastiness and chocolate. Mouthfeel is full and oily/creamy with a very burnt/bitter lingering finish.

Everything about this was not what I wanted at.the moment. Super fruity and creamy aroma. Flavor is a bit syrupy and just not good.

Mission Plunder IPA
22oz bomber pours with a near perfect hop hazed copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops, malt sweetened grapefruit like citrus hops, malts and a bit of crystal malts. After it warmed a bit some floral hops start to open up. The taste is pretty bitter with hops where pine takes a quick strangle hold on the experience dealing sharp bitter and resiny pine sap hoppiness. Another sip, and yes this is a big ole’ bitter hoppy brew. To midway thin streams of faintly juicy grapefruit and tangelo are noticed taking this pine hoppy train ride right into the finish. Like in the nose; as it warms it picks up some floral like hops. If you’re ready for hops and hop bitterness this won’t disappoint. This works for me.
