Are you ready for a 32oz can of double IPA? Well, get ready because San Diego’s Mission Brewery just picked up distribution in Hawaii. Known for making not only great award winning beers, Mission also packages four of their beers in 32oz single serve cans called cannons (Mission IPA, Shipwrecked Double IPA, El Conquistador Extra Pale Ale & Cortez Gold Belgian Blonde)
Here’s the line up that you can expect to find in stores and bars on draft soon.
Mission Amber – Dusseldorf-Style Altbier
A covenant of light and dark, of refreshing and full-flavored, making for one majestic session beer. With a crisp lager-like spirit and a toasty character, the bitterness is bolstered yet balanced. The lingering sweet caramel taste is buttressed by the generous use of Munich, Vienna and Pilsner malts.
5% ABV, 43 IBU
Mission Blonde – Kolsch-Style Ale
With the color of a pilsner and the character of an ale, our blonde settles into the realm of restorative. Endowed with an authentic Kolsch yeast strain for a peck of fruitiness that compliments the blend of noble hops. Lager-like with its delicate dryness, it really is redolent of ales from Koln, Germany.
5% ABV, 20 IBU
Carrack – Imperial Red Ale
Brewed with a plethora of crystal and rye malts and a touch of brown sugar to bring out the layers of malt complexity. A healthy dose of kettle hops followed by dry hopping with Summit and Cascade
10.2% ABV, 71 IBU
Cortez Gold – Belgian Blonde
Light, earthy and slightly spicy hop nose complemented by a lightly sweet pils malt character. Subtle yet complex. Wonderfully drinkable.
5% ABV, 20 IBU
Dark Seas – Russian Imperial Stout
Such a nice big beer for so many occasions, Dark Seas will intimidate those not willing to embrace the glory of its magnitude. Black as the darkest night, and full of dark fruit, coffee, and intense chocolate aromas. Dark Seas is sure to please those who choose to discover this wonderful beer.
9.8% ABV , 75 IBU
El Conquistador Extra Pale Ale – Session Style American Pale Ale
Pale golden color with soft lemon and melon esters and a bready malt body. Dry hopped with Centennial and experimental hops from the Yakima Valley. If you like a hoppy IPA, but donâ€™t always care for the higher alcohol, try an El Conquistador XPA.
4.8% ABV, 44 IBU
Mission Hefeweizen – Bavarian Hefeweizen
Our award winning Bavarian-Style Hefeweizen is unlike the cloying lemon-laden beers that flood the market under the same name. Ours is a classic, a pious ode to the summer style, replete with hints of banana, clove and pear. Itâ€™s all in all refreshing, and no fruit was added-nor needed. Instead the complex character of the beer is produced through mastery, detail and authentic Bavarian yeasts.
5.3% ABV, 15 IBU
Mission IPA – American-Style India Pale
Fraught with hops complex, vigorous and virile. Endowed with a subtle malt character for a sturdy and balanced ale. Our Award-Winning interpretation of the popular style reflects both the history of the IPA and the distinctive and relatively modern American variation. Cascade and Centennial hops are employed generously and the result is an earthy ale that is most drinkable.
6.8% ABV, 66 IBU
Shipwrecked Double IPA – San Diego Style Double India Pale Ale
Our Shipwrecked Double IPA is like no other. With intense hop character from the use of Cascade, CTZ, and Centennial hops, it drinks like an IPA but has the backbone of a double. Distinct, with depth and malt character perhaps not found in many other DIPA’s, it hits the spot. You will not forget this one.
9.25% ABV, 75 IBU
