COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 5.2% black IPA burns the line between an American IPA and a stout, with malt and hops firing on all cylinders, in psychotic synchronicity. Roasty, chocolate and coffee notes duke it out with citrus, mango and pine. Pithy bitterness plays off roasty dryness. Light bodied, but with the intensity of a beer twice its size.

Hopped with Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra, Arcade Nation showcases the incredible complexity of three of our all-time favourite hops. The twisting flavours change so fast, you’ll need the reactions of a hardened retro gamer to keep up with them.

2016 catch up - bottle at home - It was a good stout, but I really couldn’t detect many hops. I did however have a cold, so probably not the best tasting! I do need to try it again.

kaserov (1025) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 23, 2017
Color negro, opaco, con capa de espuma marrón de dos dedos de grosor (poca retencion). Carbonatación mínima. Textura acuosa. Aroma profundo e increíble: cítrico, mango, resina. Sabor cítrico con toques de malta torrefacta (café y chocolate a partes iguales). Ligerísimo amargor final. Me sorprendieron el aroma y sabor teniendo en cuenta que la botella estaba a dos semanas de caducar.

CanCrusher (1149) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - JAN 11, 2017
Bottle 0,33L. Dark, ruby red color with small, light brown head. Aroma is combination of coffee/chocolate, roasted malts on one side and spicy/grassy hops on the other side. Taste starts light bitter and grassy, while finish is medium bitter and leans on the coffee side. Light to medium body, dry texture and soft carbonation. Decent brew, but have better black ipas...
