Darker copper with a slightly redish tint on the pour. Small head, fairly clean and clear.
Initial hit of "butter" in the nose leaves for further investigation....is it diacetyl? NAAA
Domination of hops with hint toffee and unsalted crackers.
Long lingering bitterness.
Seems to be lacking a bit of malt and body for a DIPA.

Poured from a bottle into an American pint glass. Very little head; not much lacing, but nice amber color.

The smell was very, very subtle but dominated by hints of malty sweetness; maybe a little bit of sweet orange. The taste confirmed the sweetness, with only a subtle hint of hoppy flavor. Silky smooth, medium body, but definitely a little alcoholic after-burn.

I could certainly drink a few of these, but I would not consider it in the upper echelon for the style.

Pours amber in colr with a good size cream colored head that slowly dissipates to a ring. Initial aroma is big on piney-ness with a gin like booziness. There is also a malty sweet aroma in the background that is caramelly and has a little sweet grapefruit. Taste shows some light fruitiness up front which gives way to a good size pine hop bite, some alcohol spice, and a slightly dry finish. As I get into it the raw like pine and alcohol finish becomes creamier and far less dramatic. A nicely balanced big beer from Arcadia, nothing knocking my socks off, but not much to complain about.

Cloudy amber colored beer with a slowly fading head that stays at once inch.Aroma is hops and grapefruit.Taste is light grapefruit,buttered bresd and light hops.A pretty decent beer that thankfully is not insanely hopped.I would buy again although wouldn't actively seek out.I would recommend to try at least once.

This pours a deep, opaque red with a two finger eggshell head that dies down to almost nothing with no lace. On the nose there is a sweet caramel and toffee note that rides roughshod over the hops, which are deep pine. The caramel seems almost caramelized, or perhaps there is toasted malt mixing in with it. In the mouth the toffee really comes through even more. There is something deeper, too, maybe rum-soaked figs or something like that, more indicative of an English barleywine really, but a pleasant surprise to me. The hops are there but more lingering or simmering than the standard jackhammer treatment. The body is medium, fine, but in the finish there is something just a bit too astringent, maybe some booze, maybe a bit over over-caramelization or something.

Overall, this is a nice DIPA, a welcome break from a style littered with similar tasting beers. If you like a maltier IPA, this is something to seek out.

Served on tap at the Parlour in a pint glass.

Medium copper color,reddish hue.a bit cloudy. A slight off-white head.very creamy,lacing down the glass.
Aroma was extremely clean,citusy,piney,an assertive grapefruit aroma.
Slight malt nose with hints of carmell,and a hint of nuttiness.Very inviting,the hop aromas not as pronounced as most of the double ipa's i've had.
Hop tastes dominate the palate piney,citrusy,grapefruit flavors midway throughout the finish.Syrupy with a good carmell overtone balancing out the taste nicely.
A medium mouthfeel,slightly prickly,slick going down,creamy on the palate,swelling the tongue at the finish.
A great tasting beer,very hoppy,awesome aroma.Just a bit lacking compaired to most doubles iv'e tasted.This beer lies somewhere between an excellent pale ale and a double IPA
I could drink this beer all night and would love to. Great drinkablility.
I'll be drinking this beer again.

On tap at upick6 in Erie PA. Clear amber body with small off-white head. Aroma is a touch sweet, orange/grapefruit. Taste is moderately sweet, pine/grapefruit, orange, Smooth malt body. Dry, chewy medium-full body, nicely drinkable. This is a beer that needs to warm up -- both aroma and taste improve substantially as it approaches room temperature. Not as strong as some DIPA's, but a fine one nonetheless.
