Mission Carrack is an Imperial Red Ale. Getting lots of sweet caramel and toffee malts that rush the palate to start. This is joined by a fine showing of bitter piney hops. Even with the huge amounts of hops this definitely a drinks more like a big & boozy Red Ale as opposed to a DIPA. I had no real expectations going into this, just a random bottle I picked up in Florida. It turns out this is a pretty solid beer though, I’d certainly grab another bottle or two in the future.
