3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not getting much of the hop aroma off the top. Held a nice creamy head for a short amount of time. Beer may be a little flat. Tastes like a general IPA. Get a lot of the hop bitterness up front without a lot of malt character. Medium body, not very carbonated. Finishes with bitterness. Overnall, not the most well balanced IPA out there, but drinkable.

12 oz bottle poured amber into a pint glass with a finger of head. Nice aroma of hops. This tasted more malty than hoppy with a touch of an astringent after taste.
No born on date on the bottle to know if it is beyond its time.

Draft at Brewster’s, Kalamazoo. A little surprised
I’ve never rated this. Fairly certain I’ve had this somewhere along the line even though it’s not available in MN. Hint of Butterscotch/diacetyl in the nose which seeps into the flavor, however, not in a really bad way. Beautiful artistic, sheet lace. Amber body. Nice Bready finish. In some ways this reminds me of Lucid Foto although Foto is better. Had a bells Two Hearted just before this, which is not really fair as there is no comparison.

a pretty standard IPA. Has a bit of a citrus hop taste with some caramel malts blended in.

At Dads. Seems like some folks got a bad bottle of the stuff but I must have gotten a great bottle of the stuff. Reminds me of what IPAs used to be back in the early days of Microbrews good but not dripping with fresh hops. Serving: Bottle

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 Copper colored with lots of foam. Herbal & lemonpeel, pine, and a tasty hoppiness. My favorite Arcadia beer.

Not very good. HUGE head (usually a bad sign - old?). Astringent, chemical, metallic bitterness with fruitiness and very little malt. Hey, at least I can say I tried it.

Hmmm...this is an oddly bad selection from Arcadia. Maybe I got a bad bottle, but the flavor was dominated by a faintly metallic chemical presence. I’ll need to try another to confirm, but...

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
An absolutely horrible beer! Smelled like paint thinner, its 3-inch head required a spoon to find actual beer, and the taste, well, was nasty. Maybe I got a bad bottle but the one I tasted made a Budweiser look phenomenal!

Darker than expected. Strong citrus and hops nose. Watery. Fruity. Easy to drink. Thin. It’s okay. Does not follow the Russian Imperial Sout I just finished well.
