COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dry-hopped with Columbus hops in our open fermenters, our IPA boasts a bright floral aroma and flavor reminiscent of pine and lemon peel. The pronounced hop bitterness is balanced by a medium-bodied caramel and biscuity malt character with a nutty finish. It showcases many subtle earthy bitter notes, rather than the resinous citrus-rind bite often featured in many American-style IPAís.

SHANER4 (485) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle - dark copper color with small soapy head. Aroma - pretty blah for an ipa. Muted resin hops, thats it. Taste - caramel malt up front with metallic tasting hops, not good. Palate - thin soapy mothfeel. Finish is bitter and off taste that lingers. Overall - below average ipa. Tastes more like a APA, not a high quality beer.

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.

paintedmaple (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - NOV 29, 2014
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. Iíll need to try another to confirm, but...

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! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gilvanblight (819) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Darker than expected. Strong citrus and hops nose. Watery. Fruity. Easy to drink. Thin. Itís okay. Does not follow the Russian Imperial Sout I just finished well.

Tessic (954) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
This ale poured a medium red colour with a foamy white head. Scents include citrus hops, olives, dill and leather. First sip was smooth with flavours of lemon citrus, dill and honey. Finish is medium bitter with the cirus hops lingering.

Strangebrewer (996) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear dark amber with a thin creamy tan head. Aroma of fresh Columbus hops. Light-medium body with a crisp mouthfeel, slight alcohol finish with moderate bitterness. Herbal hop flavour with lemon citrus notes, a bit grainy and acidic near the end.

superspak (3500) - Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2014
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/6/2014. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, bready malt, and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, pine, floral, grass, toast, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops, bready malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good English IPA. All around good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, bready malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
