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.

From bottle, no 25 at Papsoes blindtasting. Pours hazy orange and with a lacing white head. Hoppy aroma, slight pine and peach fruity. Perfumed flavour of hops, soapy and slight spiced. Ends with a solid bitterness lingering inbetween the mild caramel malt sweetness. Nice.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2007
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aorm ais sweet mlaty with strong notes of hops giving it notes of grapefruit and peaches, but the alcohol can also be senced. The flavor is sweet mlaty with notes of straw, grass, spices, and grapefruit, leading to a dry bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
(Bottle 65 cl) Courtesy of MaltOMeal. Hazy, amber golden with a creamy, beige head. Lightly citrusy, hoppy nose. Medium body with a distinct malt sweetness and some dry, lightly citrusy aroma hops in the finish. This lacks some balls to be a truly great Double IPA. 301107

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2008
Draught@Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy amber colour, big beige creamy head. Aroma is hops, mild spices, some rather earthy and also mildly alcoholic notes. Flavour is hops, grass, mild wood and very bittery dry. Wellbalanced and nice IIPA.

omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2008
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear amber, small but firm head. Striking lychee aroma with a twist of lemon. Medium sweet with compact full body and somewhat clean mouthfeel. The initial lychee like hoppiness changes to pine needles over soap and perfume and gives a powerful bitterness.

Cloudy amber color, big creamy head. The aroma is fresh, hoppy, not impressive. Medium bodied, less than expected; some toffee flavor and correct bitterness, but not sweet enough fruity nor resiny. This bottle is almost one year old and strangely didn’t keep up gracefully.

2007-11-30, Papsø’s Blind Tasting, 5-4-6-3-11=29
cloudy amber color; creamy head. Reasonably good malt and fruity aroma, partially covered by some infection; also some sweat. Good body, good malty flavor, giving some fruitness, quite sweet, but spoiled as well by the infection. Should be tried again.

2007-11-12, bottle, 9-5-7-4-15=40
Beautiful hazy red amber color; creamy head. Strong hoppy aroma, very fruity (oranges), and with pine needles and pine resins. Medium body structure, less sweet than expected, with leading caramel flavor and a very strong bitterness (bitter orange fruitness and some resins). Good.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 20, 2008
Bottle, 22oz. An orange-golden, hazy beer with a beige head. Hoppy nose with citrus, pine and resin, as well as some note of fluor. Not much room for malt here. Resiny and quite fruity flavor with some beefstocky maltyness, sure on the bitter side. Full body, and a long, piney finish. Pleasant, but doesn’t stand out. (080301)

MiP (13798) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Draught, 8.1%. Sweet hop aroma, quite grassy. Very cloudy red/brown colour. Stable tan head. The flavour is quite sweet with a lot of grassy aroma hops. Has a little citric hop bite. Mild carbonation, quite appropriate.

Draught at GABF 2008. Cloudy amber - white head. Milkes, grassy, wood, malty sweetness, caramel, citrus, light piney, boring.
