Poured from a 12oz bottle to a standard pint glass

Pours a copper color, a half inch of slightly off white head, dissipates to a crown, leaves slight lacing. Looks good.

Smell is different and very good. From a foot away catch a big whiff of peaches. First time I've gotten that smell so distinctly. As the beer was there's a lot of tropical aromas, mangoes, ripe oranges. Some dank smells hang around on the edge.

Taste is a little restricted at first, really recommend letting this one warm up to 45-50 degrees. At that point I start to get a lot of tropical notes. Juicy mango, pineapple, tropical fruit. Finish bitters out and dry at the end.

Mouthfeel is really great. Perfect oily carbonation.

Overall, this is a great IPA. I would have backed off just a teeny bit on the bitterness and dry finish, but at the same time, I can't fault anything to any great extent . If you would haw asked me after my first sip out of the fridge, I would have put it somewhere around a 3.7 or so, but this beer really came alive as it warmed. Really nice brew.

This is exactly what I want in a DIPA or IPA. Poured from a 22 oz bottle. Pours a beautiful amber "IPA" color. The aroma is all the floral/piney hops. The taste is the same and exactly what a hophead wants. An emphasis on the hops, and not so much for the sweet and malty flavors like some DIPAs. Overall, this is one of the best I have tried in this category. I am surprised I found such a good beer in NE Louisiana (they seem to not like good beer here). I will definitely be picking up more of these granted I can still find them.

I poured this beer into a snifter, it has a nice orange/copper color body with a small head that thins out to a thin lace. The smell has a nice rich pine aroma. The taste is well balanced of hops and malt. It has a light sweet flavor to start then a nice strong pine/bitter hop flavor comes on the back of the tongue. The mouth feel is very nice, well carobnated and overall a really good balanced DIPA

3.93/5  rDev -5.5%

A: Little to no lacing with a slight head

S: The thing that makes St. Arnolds unique to me is the combination of tasted malt smell with the IPA. You get both the pine and toasted smell in one

T: Right away you get the malted flavor with the pine and bitterness coming in the back

M: Medium bodied

O: The caramel malt base makes this a good intro IPA for those beer drinkers that have not moved into the hop world. St. Arnolds does a good job making this a balanced IPA
