BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Arcadia Brewing Company
Michigan, United States
arcadiaales.com

Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Dry-hopped with Columbus hops in our open fermenters, our IPA boasts a bright floral aroma and flavor reminiscent of pine and lemon peel. The pronounced hop bitterness is balanced by a medium-bodied caramel and biscuity malt character with a nutty finish. It showcases many subtle earthy bitter notes, rather than the resinous citrus-rind bite often featured in many American-style IPA's.

1060 OG; 41 IBU

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a semi-hazy golden color with a finger and a half’s worth of white frothy head. Sly lace. The aroma had a bright citrusy hop burst over some earthy hop bitterness. Light leafy dryness with a little bit of floral to herbal character. The flavor dryly leaned towards the sweet side in a malty sort of way. Hop tones seem a bit dispersed to allow the malt base become a bit sturdier and run throughout the aftertaste. Slight malty sort of finish. The feel was almost medium bodied with a good carbonation about it. ABV felt as appropriate. Fairly smooth along my tongue. Overall, pretty nicely done English styled IPA that seemed a bit cleaner than others of it's style brewed by Americans. I'd definitely give this another try if every seen again.

Dark yellow, 1/3" white head. Aroma was mostly grain and alcohol, not even noble hops penetrated the senses here.

Taste is your traditional English ipa, went for the woody malt tones, toffee and earth. Balanced. Goes for those biscuit nuts in the mouthfeel. Mild tea herbal tones. Average carbonation. Pretty average stuff.

Not getting much of the hop aroma off the top. Held a nice creamy head for a short amount of time. Beer may be a little flat. Tastes like a general IPA. Get a lot of the hop bitterness up front without a lot of malt character. Medium body, not very carbonated. Finishes with bitterness. Overnall, not the most well balanced IPA out there, but drinkable.
