COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first in our Brew Crew Big Beer Series, Arcadia Hopmouth Double IPA should be finding its way to a store near you. Huge Maris Otter malt and a generous amount of fresh hops combine to make this extremely balanced ale remarkable.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, dark copper in color; small off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Lots of hops and citrus fruit on the nose. Taste is a tad boozy, nice bitterness from hops, malts and fruit are in there too. Very decent DIPA.

Light bodied. Not much aftertaste. Pleasant nose. More bitter than aroma. It’s a decent double

From bottle. Pours brownish. Some orange, grass, grapefruit, but mostly big malt. Alcohol is evident. Too flat and boozy for this hophead.

chucklemation (423) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2014
A murky brown color with a shallow white head. Has a hoppy aroma. The bitterness dominates the flavor, but there’s also some citrus. Finishes dry. Decent beer, though underwhelming for a double IPA.

aroma is pine, citrus, orange zest, bread toasted malts. Color is hazy amber with soft white head that doesn’t last long leaves a little lacing. Taste is not as hoppy as expected some citrus, pine, grapefruit and apple notes. The malt flavors come through more with hints of bread, caramel, nuts, toasted malt, honey,. Its very boozy more than expected for an IPA of 8%. Palate wise it has ok mouth feel seems to leave a sappy feel in back of mouth that lingers after the swallow. Overall, very average and disappointing because it does not live up to its name.

On tap at the brewery. Nice murky copper color, virtually no head. Not much on the node. Hints of citrus, pine, floral. Semi-dry on the palate. Great IPA.

Hits the standard notes - floral, some citrus (not much), some pine. Expecting more.

TheodoreRuxpin (7) - Manahawkin, New Jersey, USA - OCT 15, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Not as hoppy as I would expect based on the name...also, the label says "Double IPA Ale". Which is redundant and repetitive and redundant.

tectactoe (1507) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Somewhere between amber and copper, very cloudy except at the very edges of the glass. Beige head shows good retention and leaves some lacing behind. Aroma is perfume hops, slight spicy tones, roses, florals, moderate citrus, grapefruit, and faint apple. Quite a bit of bread and toasted malt on the nose as well. Thick and sticky body... Taste is similar; roses, perfume, white pepper spice, mild grapefruit rind, orange zest. Alcohol is a little noticeable; slice acetone in the finish. Malt is quite heavy as well, toasted bread, faint caramel, lots of crackers with some sweetness. Balance is okay... this beer isn’t bad, it just gets lost on a shelf full of other, better DIPAs.
