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 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.

Thanks Styles. The beer pours to a lightly hazy dark amber body with nice white head. The aroma is squirt soda. Nice grapefruityness. The flavor is caramelly malts and grapefruit sections. Nicely balanced and moderately bitter. This is a pretty good entry level IPA.

Slightly hazy copper color. Creamy soapy head. Aroma has strong pine + flowers, some Pez and grapefruit. Very bright and flowery with some brown sugar. Juicey citrus flavor... some nice malt to sweeten it. Pretty good beer. I like the hop character.

Has a wonderful hoppy aroma. Nice darker amber body and white head. Flavor is pretty nice, somewhat hoppy, but seems to have a bit of grapefruit - pretty interesting. Has a decent body and carbonation. Overall, this is quite good and enjoyable.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2006
pours a nice crimson color w/ a huge off white frothy head and some great lacing. a nice spiced hop w/ a good fresh grapefruit aroma. Smells lightly sweet but definately hop diminated. Palate is smooth and well coated lightly oily. Flavor is a little mild, very smooth and blended. A very light bitter nice balanced carmel malts and grapefruit juice, some flower notes as well. A bit mild for an IIPA, but still good.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - APR 11, 2006
Pours an amber red with pillowy off white head and decent activity. Aroma is a grassy earthy hop and a bit of malt. Hops have presence but a little understated for a double IPA. The flavor is initially sweet followed by a piney hop bitterness, that isnít what Iíd classify as a dubble IPA strengh. There is carmel malt ballancing and neither the malt or hop overwealm, which is a nice aspect, but it doesnít have the power I hoped for; hop, alcohol, or otherwise. Malt is a bit buttery and also a bit fruity with a toasty malt finish.
