Pouring this from a bottle into a pint glass it looks a deep oak brown with a hint of red to it. The head is tight and thick (similar to how I like my women?) but is pretty thin on top, only about a half-finger.
Smell isn't too strong but is hops through and through. It definitely has the traditional citrusy notes and also some earthy apple and pear tones.
The taste has a nice strong bitterness, but without the citrusy bite of many DIPAs. There are also some nice hearty/earthy burnt malt flavors behind the shear, well, mouthful of hops! It has a solid level of carbonation, which I think makes its taste a little bit lighter. The swig is followed by a nice warm hint of alcohol and eventually a piney-bitter aftertaste. I don't whether it's the green on the label or the name (Arcadia) but after that first sip I'm feel pretty crunchy about drinking this.
It definitely has a fairly full body as a DIPA, but I wouldn't classify it as overly heavy. I think its mouth feel is aided by the vibrant carbonation that prevents it from overwhelming the palate with bitter coating. Another? Sure. Something about its taste makes me feel like I should put on a flannel shirt and jeans first though.

3.6/5 rDev -5%

Pours a huge, dense, off-white head that has a lot of persistence. Citrus-pine aroma; not bright and floral, but rich and robust. Amber-sienna color. Starts bitter with a citrus backing. Moves into a bright green hoppiness, with the sweet malt combining to make a slightly sweet presence. Peaks in a medium-high bitterness. In the finish, it's citrusy hops with the malt starting to come through, again.
Not bad at all. I generally am a floral/aromatic hop guy, but this is still very enjoyable for me.
