4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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. Itís 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.

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 Dexterís, 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 Iíve 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

Arcadia Hopmouth Double IPA
22 oz bomber
Medium pour in a tulip glass
Unknown bottling, mouthed 11/06
Poured a clear brownish orange with a huge mostly lasting creamy off-white head with good lacing.
Smelt of moderate pineapple upside down cake, spruce, orange rinds, cookies.
Taste was upfront moderate bitter earthy and pine followed by strong bitter mold, toasted dark bread and grapefruit rinds with a light sweet toffee kick on a long bittersweet citrus and grassy finish. Palate was medium bodied, creamy, lively carbonated and strongly astringent.
Overall, one hell of a punch to the mouth. Everything flirts with perfection, except the mouth weight, texture and carbonation could be tweaked with a little bit, maybe enliven the malt flavors.
