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.

Bottle from Super Saver. Pours hazy deep copper with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of huge fruity piney hops, caramel malt, tropical fruit (honeydew, canteloupe, tangerine) and black pepper. The flavor starts piney hoppy and tropical fruity, with the malt coming in at the end, and the malt giving more way to the hops as it warms, which causes this to get a tad bittery piney and unbalanced at the end. If you are a hophead, you will love this one.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Bottle. Big sweet, hoppy, piney nose that reminds me of Pine-Sol. Dark honey body with a patch of bubbles. Taste-medium to high bitterness, lightly metallic, “dirty” tasting, green olive, light apple. The malt profile is kind of thin, but the hops are not so over the top that it doesn’t work. Almost a really good balance. Not too sweet or cloying like so many IIPA’s. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2007 Tall, dark, and handsome is this one. Smooooooth. I would guess this is half as strong as it is. It has a brilliant hop balance. So drinkable for something at 8%. You wake up in the morning and burp hops!

wow, this one is nice. very well balanced, not over the top at all. Smooth as silk with a nice dark copper body. Poured with a thin head that dissappeared quickly. I’m going to enjoy this one.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottled. Pours a deep orange with an off white head. Aroma is strong thick and syrupy grape fruit, orange, and some light lemon. A tinge of sweetness as well lodged in there. Flavor is masterfully malty with a strong grape fruit flavor. The orange/lemon shine through but are still dominated. The finish is a sweeter citrus. Body is big and syrupy.

Arcadia Hopmouth Double IPA is a hazy amber ale with a dense, off-white head that has great lacing and retention. It has a piney aroma. It is medium bodied, soft and foamy, with a clean finish. It’s a little sweet, juicy, citrusy, resiny and piney. It has good balance. A great IPA!

Crack the cork and the hop hits you. Pours a dense, slightly hazy, amber glow. The nose provides a sweet, citrusy, hop. Sets the anticipation. 1 inch off-white head. Medium body with very evident bitterness. My palate is clean! The ale is well balanced with crisp hops, citrus notes and sweet malt. Well developed Belgian lace. Delicious. The hop notes are high but not overpowering. This ale is an excellent aperitif, as it piques the appetite. I will reach for this one again.

Pours a deep murky shade of copper with a small, faint head. Aroma of hops, peaches, and caramel. Grapefruit, bourbon (with plenty of alcohol heat), with a hoppy floral finish. Smooth with little carbonation, and plenty of bitterness. I really like this IIPA. It has a lot going on, while featuring the hops, instead of overloading on them.
