COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This remarkably balanced brew has a deep amber hue with a generous white head. Hopmouth showcases a rich, toasty flavor and sweet caramel notes because of the high-quality Maris Otter malt used. The hops are up front in the aroma, reminiscent of citrus and pine, while the resin-like flavors linger well after the last sip.

Bottle from Super Saver. Pours hazy deep copper with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of huge fruity piney hops, caramel malt, tropical fruit (honeydew, canteloupe, tangerine) and black pepper. The flavor starts piney hoppy and tropical fruity, with the malt coming in at the end, and the malt giving more way to the hops as it warms, which causes this to get a tad bittery piney and unbalanced at the end. If you are a hophead, you will love this one.

Pours a darker shade of amber, slightly hazy with a thick off-white head. Has an herbal and spruce-like aroma. Has a big toffee/caramel, Marris Otter malt presence with notes of wood, pine/spruce, grapefruit and a hint of raisin on the back end. Moderately sweet, with an ample amount of resinous hops - very balanced; think of an English interpretation of a double IPA. Medium bodied , moderate carbonation. Good head retention. Good beer, but not quite at the level of some of the other double IPAs.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2006 Bottle from Styles: First time tasting Arcadia. I was impressed with this beer. Pours an amber color with a thin head. It tasted of hops and some pine. Would definitely drink again.

This bottled brew poured a large foamy tan colored head with a frothy top of fine to large sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a hazy brown colored carbonated body and an unnoted lacing. The aroma was mild with hop dough malty notes. The palate was very tingly from start to finish with a strong hop aftertaste. It had a mild brown malt flavor with a good malty hoppy crisp tingliness to it. Definitely a strong hop presence in this one. Well done Arcadia!

bottle sample from the table at Dark Lord Day - Pours a hazy amber color with an aroma of piney hops and citrus. Thereís enough malts to back up the intense hops in the flavor, and thereís a nice, long hoppy finish. Very good. Iíll have to try a bottle for myself.

Iím not a big Arcadia fan, but this IPA is solid. Priced right at under 7 bucks, it delivers a good hoppy taste - as good as any other IPA out there.

Sampled off the picnic table at Dark Lord Day - next to the Dark Horse Double Crooked Tree, this was a mere APA - not that thatís bad, but there just wasnít much happening - thin, flat, almost british-tasting hops (which, to me, is a bad thing) - uninspired, but drinkable.

VIP thanks Styles. Pours a brown color, slight off brown color. Aroma is sharp hop nose, sweet slightly. Flavor is hopjuice. Lots of pine lots of citrus, blah blah.
