2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head, good lacing. Just a hint of hops in the aroma, more of a caramel malt. Taste is mostly malt up front with a bit of citrus hops at the end. I agree this tastes more like a pale ale than an ipa. For that itís pretty good actually, but for an ipa not my favorite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a fest goblet, showing a cloudy, orangey amber hue, with fair persistence to the frothy, cream colored head foam, and good cling to the ribbony lacing. The nose was initially a little dank, then some honey sweetness, caramel, mid-fruit & citrus esters, and a subtle resinous scent. The flavor began with a touch of medicinal taste, then moderate esters, and very lingering, resinous, earthy, and dry, hop bitterness that didnít seem to be tempered well enough by the malt, as it weighed rather heavy & astringent on the palate and the finish. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and a bit of alcohol warmth that arrived toward the finale. An average IPA that was a little out of balance for my tastes.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
