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.

Everybody has described it as well, if not better than i could. It’s tough to find a good 2IPA around, so this has become one of my best friends.

mribm (460) - Ocala, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2007
Aroma: Very aromatic, smelling of pine scented hops.
Appearance: Poured a cloudy orange color with a big frothy, long lasting head which left ample lacing throughout the entire glass.
Flavor: Sweet, malty, hoppy and delicious describe this Double IPA.
Palate: Nice mouthfeel for a big beer like this. Hides the alcohol well and has lots of hops in the finish.
Overall: I love this ale and will have to give it many more tries. It’s going to be a Hoppy Christmas in Hurley. New York!

Just recently poured fresh from tap. Delicious creamy head and enough citrus to just cut through the hoppiness of this beer

Nice malt base with a lot of pine. Good carbonation and a nice head retention. Awesome brew.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a great looking clear reddish amber with a white head. The aroma if full of citrus, hops and grass. The taste is full on citrus with some hops. Overall, a great DIPA.

22oz bomber from blue max liquors minneapolis: uncaps with a huge aroma of fresh hops.. did they dry hop in the bottle? ;) flavor is surprisingly smooth for a double IPA but very tasty, not at all overly aggressive. pleasant and long lasting taste of hops on the palate. definitely a brew to try.

on tap - union jacks, glenside pa medium gold in color - small but rock head. huge aromas of grapefruit - you can almost smell the hops from arms length. flavor is al about the hops - starting of chewy and resiny with lots of tart citrus flavors, developing into a fresh green hop flavor and ending with a punch of bitterness. another fine beer from arcadia!

On draught last night at Dexter’s, on the house actually since it was the last one. Beautiful beer that was incredibly popular there. Poured a cloudy orange colour with a huge white head. Tons of carbonation equals lots of froth. Aroma is wickedly hoppy right away. Incredibly fresh as well, with scent of pine, ginger and bubblegum floating through. Taste is fruity and hoppy and astringent in full dub IPA expectancy. One of the best Imps I’ve had in a long time."

Everything I think a Double IPA should be. Very hoppy (could stand some more bittering hops), slight alcohol taste, copper color....very drinkable
