Head small (2 cm), frothy, off white, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and broken layer
Lacing good – complete rings and stalactites of small to medium bubbles
Body medium yellow, hazy

Palate medium, oily, soft carbonation

Appearance 4, Aroma 3, Flavor 3.5, Palate 3.5, Overall 3.5
Unfortunately, since Arcadia doesn’t date their bottles, I don’t know how old this is. This was refrigerated when I bought it and was kept refrigerated until I drank it, three days later. This is definitely not even close to the reported 111 IBUs so I guess it might be old. Worth trying once – next time I’m in Battle Creek I’ll try to find it fresh.

3.14/5  rDev -16.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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.
