MISSION BREWERY SHIPWRECKED DOUBLE IPA

Mission Brewery Shipwrecked Double India Pale Ale. I loved the standard IPA and was encouraged by the review by fellow Beerio, Martin Beves. Sadly I was a bit disappointed.

I allowed it to warm a little and when I popped the cap I was overpowered by alcohol rather than hops. I am not sure that I understand this beer. The IPA is reasonably high at 6.8% and it is no real stretch to go to 9.2%. They might have kept the resinous mouthfeel and lost the hoppy aroma and taste. It was OK, but not what I expected.

I’m not sure why they bothered.
