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.

2013 bottle to a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Color is a hazy light amber and orange with a good sized off- white head. Decent lacing. Smell is a lightly sweet and toasty malt with caramel and tangerine. Hops is detectable but not prominent and there is a faint sourness. Taste starts off with the malt predominant, giving way to a little hops bitterness and then a little sourness and astringency at the end. The taste as a whole is very balanced, as Arcadia proclaims, and I agree with others that have commented that this is more like an IPA than a DIPA. Style aside, this is a very enjoyable beer that goes down easy and was a definite compliment to a warm summer evening. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EtTuCthulhu (999) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2013
This beer, once poured, is a copper color with a small off-white and bubbly head, and the aroma is quite boozy with hints of earthy yeast and grass hops. The taste is quite bitter and mildly sour, which is surprisingly balanced and thus pleasant, and the palate combines an average carbonation, slick texture, medium body, and a long astringent finish.

musinj6 (385) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Pours a cloudy amber with a one finger head that lingers leaving a moderate/heavy lacing. Hops of resin and pine with some grapfruit. Toasted and slightly roasted malt and a hint of caramel. Slightly sweet with moderate to heavy bitterness. Well balanced. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Long bitter finish. This was very good!

Bitterness and maltiness almost even each other out. The lingering astringency wins out in the end. Very generous alcohol, though.

Had it on tap at Owen Engine in Chi-Town, poured a rich dark amber hue with nice even lacing and a very subtle hop aroma. The taste is bold bitter hop but not overbearing.

On tap at HopCat in GR. Dark cloudy copper pour. Head dissipates quickly, moderate lacing. Pleasant aroma, tangerines, pine. Smooth taste, moderate bitterness. A little boozy at the finish. Overall, an enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2013 Draft at Mad Mex. More of a IPA than a DIPA. I’m not too in love with it but its good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance more of a red. Smell a bit malty for an ipa. Malty front for the taste leads into very strong grapefruit hops. Taste does not fade much after. Sold and reminds me of Pliny the elder but less rounded flavor profile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
