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.

Pours a cloudy orange color with slight yellowish off white head and plenty of lace. Aroma of pine, herb and grapefruit. In the taste, grapefruit, resin, sap and a sweet caramel like malt. A bit of alcohol is noticed. Medium bodied, well carbonated brew. Overall, a solid double ipa that gets the job done.

Arcadia hit the nail on the head with this one. I ordered a pint of this beer at the local tavern, and asked for a second. The color was light and clear with about a finger and a half of head . . . and then a taste . . . and POW!!! Hop Rocket lit up my taste buds like no other Arcadia beer has before. I will be looking for this one in the bottle. Cheers!
