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.

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 (1851) - 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 isnít bad, it just gets lost on a shelf full of other, better DIPAs.

Hopmouth pours a deep amber almost brown color with a bubbly cream colored head that lasts for a bit and leaves good lacing. The aroma is citrus and pine with a touch of molasses. The flavor is toffee and molasses up front with citrus and pine following and continuing on into the aftertaste. This is a delightful brew. The most intriguing part is that it's a double IPA but at 8% it's not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle in an English pint. Pours a dark reddish orange, minimal head, decent lace. The aroma is not really hoppy at all, but more of a cherry and pine type of mixture. The taste is more hoppy than the smell, but it is definitely not what I was expecting. The piney type of flavor really comes through and the finish is a bit dry, and fades into a citrus peel that lingers a tad, and it's a nice finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a reddish orange,hazy with tiny yeast bits.Light head/lace. Cherry caramel aroma. Taste is cherry, malty,mild hop,slick malty rich,some pine in finish almost minty or pepperminty.This is a weird abv where it borders double to just a strong Ipa. Its defiantly not an average ipa, its maltyness says its a light barleywine with hops. Hmm , its not winter,guess this is from last year? Nice beer for shure.

Bottle. Sweet nose of delicious citrussy hops, traditional PNW but edging tropical and with a doughy caramel bite. Very juicy! Copper-to-dark brown gradient pour with a tan head. Medium-strong bitterness, medium sweetness that doesnít much go away, alcohol builds and builds until it hits you in the forehead like an ice cream headache. Malt is light but clean and crisp with a crackery bite. Medium body, flights of citrus, a little flattish and reminiscent of tea (pairing especially well with the lemony hops), but fresh. Low-lying earth and dark toffee/caramel. A bit of a non-traditional IIPA, but I like it more than most of those, anyway.

On draft. A darker amber with some lacing. Very happy overall as expected for a double IPA. Bitter throughout in taste.

Chudwick (2144) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - AUG 10, 2013
funded by the $20 I found on the street series: 12oz bottle (8% ABV) - pours deep amber with small khaki head and trace lacing though I had to swirl the glass around to create the head. Nose is citrus and pine/resin. Flavor adds grassy qualities. Hoppy in the mouth but once swallowed, the hop goes away. Wet. Intriguing, but Iím not finding many answers with every sip. The only answer I have is that this beer is only good if itís in your mouth; once swallowed, the taste and flavor hides. A hearty burp though, revives the taste and flavor! I think that this beer would be better if it had a longer lasting finish.
