This bottle came all the way from Wexford, PA to my home state and nearly a year later, was shared with some friends of mine. Always nice to pull out a bottle you’ve nearly forgotten about. I suspect the slight aging factored into the review favorably.

My first brew from Arcadia, Hopmouth comes in a wicked cool bottle with a Green man character on the front surrounded by hop clusters. The beer pours a hazy tangerine with a half inch white fluffy head that drops quickly but never completely disappears. I notice lots of tiny dark yeast particles suspended in the beer. Hm…

Smells mostly of hops, but these are well blended and mellow for a Double IPA. Lots of citrus and pine, a juicy, slick smell, not harsh or bracing like some DIPAs can be. (Double Dog, I’m calling you out…). I don’t know if it’s because this beer is aged or what, but the overall impression is a very slick, cool hop bill with some hot alcohol and sweet toffee malt holding everything together. Overall the smell is quite pleasing, and it’s refreshing to find a big beer that isn’t out to knock you over.

The taste reminds me a lot of Dogfish Head 90, but less sweet and with more citrus notes. Grapefruit hops dominate, but the bitterness is never harsh and there are plenty of sweet caramel malts to back it up. The alcohol is noticeable but not up front. Again, this is quite well balanced for a DIPA, not “extreme” (thankfully) or harsh in the least. Very drinkable. The carbonation level is fine, and the mouthfeel is slick, slightly syrupy, and finishes hoppy and sugary with a lip-smacking wetness and bitterness.

Hopmouth is a good Double IPA; I enjoy the fact that Arcadia isn’t trying to out-bitter and out-hop the competition. This is just a well balanced, drinkable, 8% hoppy beer, and I commend them for making it.

Pours a dark ruby brown with a finger of creamy off white head. Smells nice - piney, resin, citrus. Drinks easy for the high abc - nice hop profile nicely balanced with some malts int he back end. This is a really solid DIPA that I will definitely be trying again. Note - want to try this with a more recent production date as the brew I tried had a born on date of October and I'm reviewing this in March. I Have to think that compromised the IPA a bit and It drank really well anyway.
