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.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JUN 17, 2003
Nice butterscotch aroma with a hint of citrus-y hops. Appearances are deceiving, but it looks great. Flavor is hoppy, yet mellow and smooth. almost like a hopped-up bitter. A bit on the dry side, but it works well. Rest easy on the palate, whats not to like. I give this extra points for character and uniqueness. It is tastey and a refeshing take on a style that can be monotonous.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUN 13, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Re-rate. Hazy medium orange body, dense medium off-white head. Nose of floral, medicinal hops with light bubblegum and biscuit. Hoppy body, spicy and floral, somewhat leafy, with light bubblegum, backed by bready malts. Underrated IPA.

4/11/03: bottle.
dirty orange body with a good amount of head. generous amount of head. very hoppy and soapy to the nose with hints of brown sugar and caramel. overload of hops-i almost felt like i was chewing on hops (minus the texture.) aftertaste of pine. (side note) ? the bottle had some type of plastic crud on it.

hoppygrrrl (104) - Albion, Michigan, USA - MAY 30, 2003
Arcadia's brew is a really consistent, nicely hopped, simple but very solid IPA. It's just what you'd expect - it's all it should be, and I'm always happy to find one in front of me, but it doesn't hold a candle to my favorite - Kraftbrau's misnamed but excellently hoppy and wonderful "Summer Alt."

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 7, 2003
Pale yellow color, creamy white head w/ nice lacing. Aroma is floral and hoppy, although it's a rather faint aroma. Flavor has a bit of a hoppy bite early on, some malt in the middle, but has an odd, metallic finish and aftertaste. Not all that hoppy compared to other IPAs out now. Just an alright IPA, in my opinion.

Decent sized relatively stable head with a nice hoppy/fresh aroma. Clean crips and hoppy - a solid IPA.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - APR 28, 2003
Clear light reddish-orange, average sized creamy slow-dying head. I love the buttered popcorn nose, which also seems to have hints of parmesan cheese and some piney, barky hoppiness. Flavor is maltier than most IPAs also, which is all to the good in my book after a recent over-hopped monster. Clean, caramel-ly, nice ending long bitterness, no masterpiece but a quality beer that I'd probably drink regularly if it were available less than 700 miles away. Thanks Michael/Psychprof!

WabashMan (1009) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2003
I'm really quite surprised by the average rating this beer has gotten, because I thought it was a pretty good, middle of the road IPA. Nice hoppy nose and flavor, though not overpowering. Good color and head as well. A pretty good, drinkable IPA, in my opinion.

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - FEB 17, 2003
A very nice, average IPA. Hops are nice and piney. The caramel malt is detectable and the balance is nice. Nothing bad here, a bit better than average.

EricTheRed (82) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2003
Light amber color with a greyish, thin and short lived head. Substantial lacing, and a slight opacity, with a sweet malty hops aroma. The flavor belies the light aroma, as it was stronger than expected, but not as strong as an IPA should be. Drinkable, but not worth 9.99/six. Unremarkable.
