COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Columbus dry-hops added directly to the open fermenter uniquely characterize our IPA with an intensely robust pure-like floral aroma and resinous hop flavor. A pronounced hop bitterness is balanced by a medium-bodied, lightly caramel and toasted malt character with a nutty finish.

Poured into tulip glass, pours a cloudy amber. Aroma is of citrus, not huge like a west coast more on the grapefruit side. Almost no head and no lace. Carbs were low also. Mouth feel is slick. Grapefruit with some malt and some malt and bitter on the finish. Very enjoyable. If I have one thing to harp on it is the cartoon ship and the huge "IPA" on the label. Looks generic on the self.

bottle. Amber with small head. Light caramel malt. Medium hops with quite a bit of grapefruit. Little bit of booze, which is surprising given the ABV.

Pours a cloudy orange. Not much head or lace. Lower carb. Fruity aroma,specifically passionfruit melon papaya or something. Malty,fruit hop driven. Pretty nice. Arcadia does not fail to imbibe character. Decent ipa. Has an arcadia trademark taste too.

Bottle, mine at an even 6.0% abv. Nose is hugely fruity, really pushing more tropical-leaning berries, with lychee and passionfruit at the forefront. Extremely active yeast that luckily didn’t gush, dense beige atop a dark golden body with plenty of carbonation. Very juicy, juicy-fruity in the mouth with light-medium, stripping bitterness and not too much sweetness; actually, this is slightly more pucker-happy in its tartness and even prefers to show a little booze over too much sweetness. Resin is rounded and dulled, caramel bears the flag for the malt flavors but is weak, body is light-medium and doesn’t add much. Hops do impart a nice woody-floral character into the finish.

tectactoe (1177) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Dad this one a few times and could never really get stoked on it. Hazy golden body, usually with yeast-looking sediment and a thin, white cap on top. Aroma is very light for an IPA; mild citrus peels, leaves, and an equally matching maltiness, sweet bread, toast, biscuits. Taste is... okay, it’s just kind of boring. Light hoppage with some mild citric notes, a bit of oily bitterness, leafy. Malt is heavy again, lots of back-end clumpy biscuit and bready notes, leading to a sweeter finish. Just uninspired, not really much going on. Far from bad, but really kind of mundane.

An average ipa. Not real hoppy or bitter. Smells fruity and pours a light yellow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear bronze pour with a 2 finger, fluffy beige head that has great retention and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, sweet crystal malt, lots of pine, some citrus and a little sweet grass. Flavor is full of pine, some bitter citrus, sweet crystal malt, caramel, earthy, spicy hops, light fruity esters and a slightly medicinal bitter finish. Light to medium body with an oily, sticky and dry feel and light, but sharp carbonation. Meh, not terrible, but not good as far as IPAs go.

Orangish amber. Hazy with a medium body. Citrusy sweetness with a bitter aftertaste.
