From a 12 oz. bottle with C/04 notched on the side, whatever that means. Brewed with English 2-row barley and Pacific NW hops. It pours a lightly-hazed amber, with high carbonation that accumulates three fingers of almost frothy head, which deposits lots of lacing as I drink. Earthy and citric in the aroma - nice, but could be more complex. Tastes of citric, piney, earthy and lightly spicy hops that contribute a medium bitterness atop lightly toasted malts; there's a touch of heat in there as well. The body is medium and drying, with a fairly long finish. Pretty good IPA - sessionable for sure - but in the oversaturated IPA market, there are certainly better ones out there.

A: Dark copper, with brown and red tints. Clear with medium high carbonation. Surprising low head out of the bottle, however left a respectable layer of white foam for the long haul.

S: Wheat crackers, some rye bread and zesty citrus of orange rind. Maybe a little spiciness of lemongrass.

T: Cedar. Walnut. Orange rind. This brew had a nice chewy malt backbone. Nice long and slow pipe tobacco, malt vinegar and balsamic finish.

M: Starts off watery and juicy. Nice and Medium dry through the middle. Dryness lingers but remains mellow. Low acidity for your usual ipa. Really easy going.

O: Great everyday ipa. It's mellow and drinkable. The malt balances the hop nicely making it extremely versatile. The only downside to being a well rounded beverage means that it doesn't stand out in any particular way in the hops department.

Don't know why this beer garners such unenthusiastic reviews. I just had one, bought at random, and it's a delightful surprise. The flavor is citrusy without being over the top, and there is enough hoppiness and malt to be rewarding. True, it doesn't really come across as an IPA, and I think that's part of the problem: what is it, exactly? Honestly, I don't care - it's worth having on hand.

Orange in color with a thick head of foam, Arcadian IPA is pleasing to the senses upon first inspection. The foam holds its own for a while and the nose is one of citrus, mango, pine, and caramel malt and it’s quite nice.

Now for the taste. This IPA doesn’t disappoint and its flavors are about what I expected based on the nose. The flavors of citrus, mango, caramel malt, and some pine are present, joined by tastes of bready malts, some grassiness, pineapple, and a slight buttery character. The body of the beer is medium overall and it’s less bitter than other IPA.

This beer is a little different from other IPA I have tried, but I must say that I find it agreeable and like it more as I drink more. At first, I was a little put off by the buttery component to the taste, but I took a liking to it once I opened a second bottle and actually find it interesting. The taste is less bitter than others of this style and it seems like an IPA that most will find at least acceptable. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
