Appearance: Cloudy light copper

Smell: Mostly grapefruit and a bit piney

Taste: A very sweet caramel flavor, almost towards butterscotch. The there is a tangerine/grapefruit/citrus taste that follows the sweet caramel. More malt than hop.

Mouthfeel: A sticky and thick-ish mouthfeel. The beer coats the mouth and hangs around.

Overall: I enjoyed the beer but it took a bit to get used to the taste. The 9% is well masked by the flavor. This is a beer to be drank by itself or paired, rather than an everyday beer.

This dipa pours a cloudy brownish copper color with a small, short lived off white head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma is rather sweet and malty for the style with pine and herbacious hops merely supporting the maltiness. The mouthfeel is sticky and coats the palate almost a little too much. Flavors are malt driven and seem closer to a Brandywine than a dipa. The hops are present but not in their bitter gloriousness like I had expected. There is no date on the bottle but I am guessing that this was not super fresh. Would like to try a fresher bottle because, if hopmouth is any indication of Arcadia s abilities with hops, this should be much better.
