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 IPAs.

Draft at Brewsters, Kalamazoo. A little surprised Ive never rated this. Fairly certain Ive had this somewhere along the line even though its 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: AUG 31, 2016 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. Ill 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

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

Tessic (1114) - 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 (1242) - 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.
