Arcadia B-Craft Black
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque except at the edges dark black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong roasted malt aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly vinous burnt malt and brown malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Arcadia Whitsun
Bottle from andersons. Nose is weak and a bit too spicy for style. Body is thin and somewhat weak. Usual citrus rind on top of toasted cereal wheat with a bit of coriander. Not amazing but not awful. Goes well with the heat.

Arcadia / Wadworth 2X Export-Style Bitter
Draft to taster at Arcadia. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent golden caramel with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of caramel up front with mild notes of hops in the background. Tastes like it smells with some grassy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied. Solid, but forgettable.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with orange highlight and a small foamy tan head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was malty with notes of anise and coconut. The flavor was bitter and sour with almost vinegar followed by roasty malts, black food coloring and anise. Long finish. Medium body. Not good.

Black pour with tan head than fades to leave a thin film on tol of beer. Sweet aroma. Flavor is nice with vanilla, chocolate, and coffee with a nice bourbon touch. Palate is light enough to not weigh yo down but is not overly thin. Good body for a porter. One of my wifeís better random purchases.

Arcadia Cheap Date
Rated on 6-12-2016 (Bottle) The appearance is a medium sized foamy white head that is mostly lasting, transparent light yellow body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruit, grassy, light spice, and pale malt. The flavor presents light bitterness, citrus hops, fruity, light spice, semi-sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable easy drinking beer, but nothing to really write home about with this beer. It is rather bland and boring to drink/rate.

A nice malt and hop nose but a pretty thin taste profile. There is some hop bitterness, booziness and caramel malt with a touch of strawberry. Middle of the pack.

Arcadia Hop Rocket
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 5-4-16. Fresh, citric aroma. Lemon and orange scents. Also peach and yellow plum (pitted fruit). Smells like a citric-flavored Toaster Strudel and dessert wine. Clear gold with some effervescence. Some haze in the final pour. Small amount of short-lasting, beige head. Simultaneously hoppy and malty. Sweet, malty taste: Marshmallow. Orange flavor; also tangerine and peach. Lightly bitter finish, but, overall, this beer is well on the sweet side for the style. Itís not cloyingly sweet, however. Medium to full body. Lively in the palate. Overall, underwhelming. Too sweet and inoffensive, like so many other IPAs today. Rating number 2001.

Arcadia Cocoa Loco Triple Chocolate Stout
On tap at BSTR. I see ratings all over the map. Could it be a bottling issue? I had it on tap and it poured a dark brown with a tan head. Chocolate, cacao and dark malt in the taste and aroma. It was really pretty decent.

Arcadia Hop Rocket
Originally listed as Arcadia Hop Rocket 11th Anniversary Ale. Lightly hazed light amber color. Small diminished head of off-white bubbles. Orange citrus, resinous nose. Light fruit also in the background and a hint of caramel. Full, not quite mouth coating feel. Light fruit in the front. Some caramel and pepper gradually work their way in. Citric, acidic and a bit overbearing at times. Stomach is warming. Sometimes stronger is not better. Lacks balance. 3/10
