Acquired via trade from FtownThrowDown, so a big "thank you" goes out to him.
Poured from a 22oz. bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy dark amber color, with a large, thick & foamy off-white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: There’s a strong piney hops aroma, with a citrus sweetness in the background.

T: Decent hops bite hits you first, but the malty citrus sweetness is quick to follow. I picked up a hint of smokiness, which is a bit uncharacteristic of the style but very welcome. After the initial hops burst, the taste is very well-balanced all the way through to the after-taste.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium-to-heavy body, medium carbonation, clean & dry finish.

D: Very tasty, not very filling, excellent representation of style, this is a beer that’s worth sticking with whether it’s as a pounder or a sipper. I liked this one a lot and think it's a flat-out great beer.

This poured a dark tan with moderate beige head. It smelled like a mix of brown sugar, malt, and pine hops. It tasted fairly similar to Arcadia's standard IPA, with a delicious blend of citrus hops and sugary malt. It was thicker than the IPA with no carbonation, and a smooth aftertaste with a bitter bite that builds on you. Overall this was a great beer!

very nice DIPA. Deep orange/red/amber, nice small head, great lacing. Good hoppy smell, but nothing special. A little funkiness on the nose. Taste is rich, smooth, hoppy; with citrus, pine, grapes, cakebread; tart, delicious. Also some cream, bready/barley/malty base. Some cinnamon as well. Alcohol hidden well. Mouthfeel is good. Drinkability is dangerously good. Recommended, should be in sixers.

Appearance - a bouncy pour makes for two solid fingers of dense, eggshell colored foam. Dense, creamy, sticky, it caps a murky, dirty and dull orange brew. Large patches of thin lace on the glass.

Aroma - a nice steady feed of snappy pine and citrus.

Taste - a bright and sweet orange citrus on top of a solid malty base. The swallow brings on the hop bitterness, piny with grapefruit hints, but very evenly balanced without being medicinal. Finishes nicely hoppy, orangey.

Mouthfeel - buttery smooth. Heavy and silky, subdued carbonation.

Drinkability - impressive DIPA, one of my favorites of the style so far. Good beer-tasting candidate, doesn't taste overly ramped up abv-wise but has a great balanced, intense flavor.

I had this at the Michigan Brewers Guild Winter Beer Festival.

A: Amber-bronze in colour, wonderful white head.

S: Citrousy American hops, with some pale malt in the background.

T: Very well balanced. The quality of the malt manages to come through the citrousy hop flavour and bitterness. I really enjoyed the well-rounded flavour of this one. At 8.1%, the alcohol was remarkably well-hidden.

M: Body is on the heavier side of moderate, very smooth, carbonation was moderate.

D: Really good.

I think this was my favourite brew at the fest.

Amber pour, slightly hazy. Thin head.

Citrusy American hops dominate the nose. Some light caramel maltiness there too.

Extraordinarily well balanced. Incredibly hoppy, but malty sweetness blends the resiny citrus to a sane level. Residual sweetness is very nice in the face of the overwhelming hops. Leaves a bitter tang on the back of the tongue.

Rich and fuill bodied, yet very refreshing, due to the freshness that the hops add. Sets the standard for "Midwest DIPA."

Solid looking beer: dark, burnished copper with a solid tan head of sticky foam. Pungent aromas of grapefruity hops. Sweet and mildly acidic up front. Juicy, resinous hops in the middle and a not-too-bitter aftertaste. This DIPA leans towards fresh hop flavour over inflated IBUs. I find this to be a very drinkable DIPA, although I suppose that also means it's not as "big" as some others. Nice balance of hop flavour and abv, with enough malt to hold it together. Very smooth body.

Hazy copper in color with a sticky, lacing off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, citrus, and sticky sweetness.

Taste is similar, with sticky pine sap, citrus and sweet caramel.

This is really delicious and really drinkable. There are a lot of hops, obviously, but they're balanced by a nice malt profile. For such a big beer, its imminently - dangerously - quaffable.

Pours very nice. Light amber with twinges of happy sunshine orange and a big, giant white head that sticks out all solid. Not soapy. Solid.

Smells of giant grapefruit hops against lighter citrus hops and light, bready malt. Wonderfully balanced, even though the hops are huge and the malt is not.

Tastes great. Wow. Fantastic balance. None of that dirty, syrupy malt aftertaste you often get strong double IPAs. Just big giant hops against a light, sweet bread malt.

22oz bottle obtained via trade with CRJMellor. Thanks for the opportunity...

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" beige head over the cloudy reddish amber brew. Head hangs around, with plenty of sticky lacing. Aroma is grains and juicy citrus hops. Taste is amply malty upfront, seguing nicely into the moderate lemony hops, and closes clean with the slightest tease of alcohol warming. Mouthfeel and drinkability both excellent, would make space for a few of these in the fridge if I had the opportunity.

Tried this on a whim. $5.99 for a pint + 6oz bottle.

This beer is beautiful. Hazy dark amber color, riddish with lots of bubbles. Off-white lacing that goes from thick big bubbles to a fine misty appearance. One of the most visually impressive beers I've poured.

The aroma is wonderful. Rich, buttery fruit smell that makes my mouth water. There's a little sweet caramel scent too.

Has a nice level of bitterness. Tastes like it smells, very hoppy and fresh tasting. The mouthfeel is very pleasing. It has a creamy texture with a little bite on the back of the throat. I could drink this all night.
