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.

3.11/5  rDev -17.1%
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.
