Updated 12/07/2010
(Served in an American pint glass) A- This beer pours a hazy light copper body with a thick sticky beige head that sticks to the glass with each sip. There is a strong carbonation of bubbles that glide to the surface. S- The green woody hops are full with a dried citrus aroma and a bit of gym locker room fragrance but it is a good hop quality. T- The spicy hops blends with an alcohol bite that finishes with a woody citrus hop flavor and a green pungent hop note that lingers. M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with an alcohol warmth that enhances the hops. D- The hops are a bit dry and pithy with a nice dry woody citrus quality and some good pungent green qualities. The hop flavor grows as the beer opens and the alcohol is a nice compliment.

(Served in a pear shaped goblet)

A- This beer pours a hazy caramel brown body with a thick swirling carbonation of big bubbles. There is a creamy beige colored head with lots of big bubbles on top. The head sticks to the glass after each sip.

S- The soft smell of green leaf hops with a soft pale malt note in the background. As the beer warms the hops increase but are still pretty soft.

T- This beer has a big dry green hop flavor with notes of pineapple weed and grass with a freshness of mint without the actual flavor. There is a soft sweet light malt with a hint of toast that comes through after the hop flavor. The finish is a bitterness from the hops that comes back in the after taste and hangs on.

M- This beer has a medium-full mouthfeel with a light watery note which is pleasant before the creamy texture fills it in.

D- This beer has a nice hop flavor with some good depth but it is not a big punishing hop monster that I was expecting. I think it is just a great sipping IPA.

This was a drain pour for me. And I don't think it was a bad bottle.

22oz bottle purchased May 2007 at Lukas Liquors in St. Louis. Poured into a Fuller's Imperial pint glass. Label seems to be designed to report a bottling date, but nothing's notched.

Deep clear amber with some brown highlights - very nice thick, pillowy head of very tiny bubbles. Lacing sticks around forever, and the bubbles rise nicely from the bottom even 25 minutes after pouring.

Unfortunately it's downhill from there. Nose is a thick gooey piney resin, reminiscent of cleaning fluid, maybe even some sulfur notes. The taste is unfortunately even worse - no citrus, not even much typical hop bitterness, just syrupy pine followed by more of the same. Very hard to detect the malt - this style should have a lot of malt supporting the hops. Coats the mouth with a thin film of resin.

DIPA is not my favorite style, but I'll certainly go out of my way to have some of the local favorites - a White Knuckle from Marin Brewing, Pliny the Elder from Russian River, or even Green Flash's Imperial IPA. But I won't be trying Arcadia's again.

4.2/5  rDev +10.8%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber. Leaves a two finger tan head that has excellent retention, and leaves webs and webs of excellent lacing. Body is an orange-hued amber with brown highlights.

Smell - Pine resin, citrus, and more pine resin. Where's the malt ?

Taste - a hop bomb consisting of pine resin, and more bitter pine resin, with hints and highlights of citrus. Faintly perceptible malt makes itself tasted in brewed tea and toasted maltcrackers flavors, but again, very faintly - it is only the thinnest of backbones. Finally, there is the smallest hint of caramel, but bitter pine resin, and more bitter pine resin obilerates all - all the way through to the finish, and also in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - medium to full bodied, smooth, and very, very slick from hop oils.

Drinkability - this is very good, but it is just a little high in abv to make it sessionable, although it is low enough to tempt one to push it.

Pours an amber color with a tall head that has nice retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. The aroma actually has a lot of caramel malt to back up the fruity and pine hops. The flavor has a ton of grapefruit, pine, citrus hops but also has a very well balanced caramel malt backbone. The body is medium and the drinkability is pretty good.

22oz bomber
$5.49
Binny's Willowbrook


Hopmouth pours a very dark orange, bordering on garnet, but glows when held to the light. Slightly hazy with clumped groups of rising carbonation. Two finger ivory head formed on the pour and stayed put becoming dense and craggy over time but without receding. Leaves thick drink line lacing after each sip. Great looking head but the body is a little too hazy.

Smells of lightly toasted grains with a solid helping of caramel throughout. Mild vegetal aroma but it's surprisingly not a turn of, reminiscent of celery. Big grassy hops with a squeeze or two of grapefruit juice. Alcohol vapors tickle the nose as it warms.

Biscuity and caramel malts start things off and are quickly followed by a quick wave of alcohol. A grassy hop bitterness washes over the tongue along with hints of grapefruit and pine needles. The caramel makes an appearence again on the swallow. Good flavorful IIPA.

Medium body that becomes airy and creamy when it hits the tongue. Moderate carbonation with a solid bitterness.

Easy drinking enjoyable IIPA. My glass is disappearing far to quickly.

Good solid IIPA. Balanced but with big waves of malt followed by big waves of hops. My first encounter with Arcadia Ales and I wouldn't hesitate to venture back.

22oz. Bomber Big Beer Series

Pours a cloudy dark golden orange color, nice carbonation, nice one finger plus creamy tan head, lots of thick stick lacing throughout the drink. The nose is mostly hops, nice blend of malts, citrus (grapefruit), some piney, nice touch of caramel. The taste at first is slightly sweet/hoppy/bitter, nice touch of malts/citrus kick in next, the finish is dry and bitter. Medium body. Very drinkable, finally an awesome brew from Arcadia, glad I have another bottle.

22 oz. bomber poured into a nonic.

Pours a clear amber hue with a nice khaki colored two finger head that slowly died down to a nice lacing. Stickiness grabs a hold and won't let go. Smell is very orange peel dominated up front, very unique odor for a DIPA. I really can't detect much else in the nose. Taste begins with a hint of flowers and earth which is followed by some pine hop goodness, but very subtle. A bit of caramel malt sweetness finds its way mixed in as well. Finishes very dry, but takes a while to kick in. Mouthfeel is pretty full bodied with a good amount of bubbles, somewhat chewy. I'll easily finish this one, but that's enough for me. Not bad, give it a try.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Beneath its billowing ivory-tan head, Arcadia's HopMouth appears a hazy copper and crimson and orange accents. The head retention is excellent, no doubt buoyed by the tiny streaming bubbles from beneath, and it leaves walls of widespread, craggy lace about the glass.

A perfumey combination of yeasty fruitiness (berries, cherry), hoppy fruitiness (grapefruit, apricot, tangerine, melon), earthiness (almost like Brettanomyces - perhaps that's where the cherry is coming from...), and pine (or is that spruce?) ride atop a grainy, gently toasty malt base. It's quite unique and very intriguing!

The flavor offers more of the same, along with an almost perfumey character in the mouth due to the alcohol and resinous astringency. Some of the seemingly Brett like character carries over as well, and if it weren't for the vibrant notes of citrus rind and pine (perhaps from Centennial and Simcoe), that might be stronger. It's noticeable strong at 8.1%, but the alcohol gives more of a wash than a prick and it's not unpleasant. The malt is sturdy, and at least at the start of the pint, it stands up to the brash, piney and fruity hop assault. The bitterness is solid, but buffered within the malt base, and it finishes dry but with a note of sweetish and caramel tinged malt that fades to citrus rind, pine, and floral.

At first taste I thought this was over-done, but as it warmed and the malt spread, it became more and more interesting. The Brett character is quite nice, but I wonder if that's intended - I somehow doubt it is. Regardless, it's strength is without question, and I'd highly recommend this as an "at home" beer. Worth trying!

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into a shaker glass. The color was a very opaque, dirty amber with a half inch of beige head. Lots of lacing was left around the glass.
The smell was grain and biscuits with bit of a floral scent, and just a hint of roastyness.

The taste was toasted white bread and those multi-grain type rolls up front, followed by a pineapple or lemon bitterness at the end of the swallow. The mouthfeel was medium to full.

The drinkability of this beer was very good, with decent balance. It's just not all that exciting.

Appearance: Pours a semi-hazy amber body with a full, off-white head.

Smell: Sweet-smelling toffee and caramel backed by faint scents of tropical fruits.

Taste: A basic caramel sweetness races through some checkpoints of soapy, tart grapefruit, and pine on its way to a hot, bitter finish. Eh.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Mild carbonation.

Drinkability: Fairly uninteresting, it seems to be a half-hearted attempt at the style.

On tap at Arcadia and poured into a pint glass. This IIPA poured a hazy amber/orange color with a thin beige head that quickly faded away. The aroma of this beer was full of caramel and grapefruit notes. A good amount of hoppiness in the smell. The flavor was mostly citrus hops with a touch of caramel. The mouthfeel was a bit thin for a double. I was hoping for a little more of a resiny look on the sides of the glass. With that said, this is still a solid effort from Arcadia.

22 oz bottle poured into an imperial pint glass. Tall chunky head with serious legs, leaving a moderate amount of lacing. Color is a clear, but dark coppery red.
Smell is a peat moss/earthy bitterness with a sweet malty background. Taste is an herbal bitterness, almost tea-like. The malt sweetness is light, oddly like a honeydew melon.
Mouthfeel had a solid medium body. Drinkability was OK, but towards the end of the bottle I was getting a little tired of it.

Pours a deep golden color with a massive white head and super sticky lacing.
Smell is all hops, grassy, piney, herbal, slight citrus.
Taste is way bitter hops matching the smell. Herbal hops dominate with some slight grass and pine. Slight malt sweetness comes through in the finish which is a little odd to me. The malts usually come through in the start.
Pretty highly carbonated, kinda slick and just a little thin.
Nice brew after a hot afternoon mowing the lawn.

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber a deep rich amber hue with a generous and frothy off-white head. Decent lacing.

Citrusy grapefruit mixed with malts and a sweet Juicyfruit aroma.

First impression is definitely the sharpness of the hops. Back end brings maltiness for good balance. A bit of booziness in the finish.

Medium bodied. Crisp. Carbonation was very light.

This is a pretty good DIPA from Arcadia. Easy to drink.

22 oz bomber, served slightly chilled, in a frosted Arcadia IPA pint glass.

A - deep amber color with a fluffy tan head, thinning out to a top coat, leaving tiny lace bubbles all down my glass.

S - strong citrus hop aroma with only a hint of maltiness.

T - good dub, very balanced flavor, bitter bite upfront, malt in the midway, return to dry/sour hoppy finish.

M - nice mouthfeel, a bit drying, but I guess that's what makes you want more.

D - ok for a few, but extreme bitterness would limit me from drinking this all night. 8% abv is relatively low for a dub, but no matter, I still wouldn't have more than 3 or 4 pints over a few hours.

for the limited availability and fair price, it's worth a try.

I bought a bottle of this beer about 1 month ago and it was skunked so I emailed Arcadia brewing and told them my problem and they sent me 2 brand new bottles and a pint glass.Thats sure stepping up to the plate if you ask me.Big thanks go out to Timothy Suprise.I drank this beer from a tulip shaped glass.

Huge nice off white head with a burnt amber colored body with some nice carbonation coming up from my glass.Nice lacing on my glass.

Piney notes come to my nose and maybe some bitter nop notes in the smell also.

Bitter hops attack first then leads to a clean taste then to sweet malt.I wanna say there are simcoe hops in here because there is that hop bite!

The mouthful is between thick and thin and isnt cloying at all and is very smooth.Carbonation is almost non existent.

While this beer is not over the top in any way,it does satisfy for what it is.I do enjoy my DIPA a bit more hoppy but this wont let ya down.I wanna try it from a keg.

Holy moly, this looks just like a barley wine – dark, hazy amber oak pour, foamy thick head of ivory, sheet laces all the way down.

A real floral hop bomb in the aroma, the taste turned to the woody & resinous side. A good taste, just not quite as good or oily as I expected. Still finishes sharp, crisp and dry.

Hmm, now, at $7 a bomber, which ain’t too bad, but I think the cost per ounce makes it a bit too much for regular drinking.

I will see how aging some bottles for a year work out.

Translucent ruby color with a 1-finger off-white head. Very fast rising bead sustains a thin cap on top. Great smelling citrusy hops. Smells of grapefruit juice and sweet, juicy malt. First taste is juicy malt and the fruity hops followed up by big bitterness. Alcohol starts to come through as it warms up, wouldn't be a problem if you drink quickly. Carbonation in mouthfeel was OK along with a smoothness in each swig. This was something for me that I ran across and bought it just to compare with others in the style. Something worthwhile to try if you haven't before. Booziness as it warms up was a problem with me though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured a nice amber color with a small foamy white head.

The aroma had some hops, but this beer was probably about a year out so nothing was bursting forth. Some alcohol and light caramel was in the nose. Faint vinous notes were also present. Perhaps a slight hint of oxidation as well.

The flavor of the beer was reasonably bitter with mostly herbal/earthy hop flavors. The malt profile was too caramelly for this style IMO. Following a bottle of 3F Dreadnaught, this beer fell flat. The beer lacked any kind of broad hop profile, which the masters (Pliny, Dreadnaught, Maharaja) posess.

The carbonation was fine and the mouthfeel was light/medium.

This beer was pretty average for a double IPA. Nothing too impressive here. I'd like to try it fresher if possible. Regardless, this double has an "east coast" malt profile to it. This style is favorably evolving into a lighter, crisper beer with less malt that lets the hops remain bright. Hopmouth seems to be behind that evolution as with many other east coast double IPAs IMO.

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.

This one has been aged for at least a year, which may have changed the flavor... I don't know what it tastes like off the line, but I would recommend aging, because this is wonderful.

A- Slightly cloudy. Deep, rich amber, like the kind they make dinosaurs out of. Some strange black particles in the bottom...?

S- Hoppy, and malt too, that comes in to almost balance... smells wonderful.

T- Okay. Slightly metallic, but hoppy and the malt balances... It's really good, but simply not as good as the nose.

M- Somewhat thin, actually. Smooth, clean, but a little more watery than i expected.

D- I could drink this for hours. cheers.

22 oz bottle into a mug. Poured a pretty nice, amber color, good amount of head with fairly nice lacing as the beer went. Unfortunately, that was all the nice got on this one. Nose was bitter and sour, biting at the nose, almost acrid. Nothing like any DIPA I'd had before. Extremely bitter, but not in a standard 'beer' way. Tasted like solvent, very astringent. My mom commented that it had the taste of fertilizer. Truly an unique and awful flavor. Feel was fairly solid for a DIPA, but not anything noteworthy, and certainly nothing that could overcome the taste/smell. Overall, can't recommend this one. I've never had anything like it before, and I hope to never have anything like it again. Overall, it's a mess. Nasty taste and smell, definitely something I will avoid in the future. May have turned me off for the brewer overall.

A tumbler glass served at Capone's.

A: The DIPA has an amber orange color, fairly clear, with a small head that doesn't last long.

S: The aroma is bitter hops, amped up significantly. Citrus notes dominate.

T: The flavor is out of balance. Big oily hops great you up front but never recede to allow for a malty body or any other flavors. The hops are bitter and don't mix well, creating a taste that is a pine-citrus combination that has no clear definition. The lack of focus hurts the taste, as too many things want to stand out but none are able to.

M: The mouthfeel is a big mess of oily pine and citrus hops. If you like big hops that are clearly out of balance, this is for you.

D: I chose this over the Sorachi Ace as my first DIPA of the evening (see my profile for the write-up on Sorachi Ace) and regret it. The flavors never coherently mix and leave a lasting bitterness in the mouth.

At the brew house in Battle Creek. "Brew Big or Go Home" is the motto the have here and as this was my first of the day I might have gone home after having this one. It pours a nice deep orange bordering on amber with a nice white top that gives some good lacing. A soft nose of mostly cascade-ish citurs and floral hops with some maltyness leaning toward an IPA and not a Barleywine. Wow was I under impressed. The flavor of the DIPA again was closer to and IPA than some out of balance toward a BW, but again this is not quite enough. I am underwhelmed and the only saving grace is that is does have balance and is enjoyable as a APA but a double it falls short.
