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.

Pours a dark copper color with a thick and foamy ivory colored head. Really sticky lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops and malt. Nice bitter character and medium body. Lots of hoppy pine and citrus flavor with an underlying sweetness of malt and toasted bread. Manages to stay thoroughly bitter and rounded at the same time. The finish is tart and hoppy and lasting. One of Arcadiaís best.

22 oz bomber. Pours a murky dark orange with a rocky white head. Not a monster by any means but quite enjoyable with citrus and pine all balanced nicely by the caramel malts. One of the better brews I have from these guys.

Big Pacific Northwest hop aroma. Nice IPA orange pour...releasing even more pine and grapefruit scents. Nice caramel/toffee base...not enough to support the title of Imperial IPA, though. And the big bitter highlights, while enjoyable, are also more suited to a normal American IPA, I think. The IBUís clock in at around 76 or so. But very well done, and Iíd drink these all day long if given the chance.

Pours a dark amber with medium, off-whte head that fades to a lasting cover, some lacing. Big hop aroma, citrus and pine, lots of caramel and fruits underneath. The flavor is moderately sweet, caramel, apricots and lots of pine. Smooth and soft mouthfeel, finish is medium length, slightly bitter.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2006
Bottle - big grassy hop nose with some spicy hops in, as well. Beautiful amber/orange body with an off-white head. A delicious beer! Obviously there are tons of hops, but somehow they do not pucker your mouth. Caramel, peaches, apricots and oranges along with a strong malt backbone. Nice full, soft mouthfeel. This is a very fine brew!

Dark copper color with medium sized white head. Aroma has the same over-ripe strawberry notes that my homebrew has when I over-dry hop it, and itís not pleasant. Flavor is malty, slightly creamy, hint of apricot and citrusy hops, fair amount of caramel, with a moderately bitter finish. I just canít get past the unpleasant aroma. I have another bottle, so Iíll lay it down and try again in a while. Maybe it will mellow.

Fl.owers and pine trees fill the nose of this double IPA indicating that there will be plenty of hops to sand the tongue. And there are. The flavor is filled with perfume and flowers. There is plenty of bitterness to last long after the beer has been swallowed. Medium body and ample carbonation. Overall, this IIPA wasnít as satisfying as others I have had.

Burnt amber pour with a tan head full of soapy bubbles. Pine hop aroma borders on Pinesol - almost generic in smell because of the intensity. Fortunately, the sweet malt body helps balance some of the piney hops in the body - but only to a point. Still watery throughout. Some bitter orange rind and other citrus notes show up in the finish to help round things out. Good, but I just am not crazy about the hop selection here.

OldGrowth (3009) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - FEB 6, 2006
Bottle, from trade with JCW. Good nose, soft & sweet. Orangy, pine, biscuit?. Litely hazy brownish orange, big head that slowly faded to a cover, nice lacing. Bittersweet flavor. Citrus, mainly grapefruit. Kind of grassy too. Medium body, creamy smooth mouthfeel, little flat, bitterdry finish. Good, but bitterness was narrow, if that makes sense to you.You got a hint of the citrus, but seemed muted to me. Maybe itís the ringwood that Iíve seen some people comment on, but I can never tell that kind of thing. Thanks JCW

Bottle. Mostly lasting small ivory head, fair amount of lacing, somewhat hazy, carbonated, and a dark orange hue. Nose was malty, sweet and hoppy and ditto for the flavor except add in some bitterness. Tingly, hoppy palate. Medium body.
