BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
The first in a limited edition, Brew Crew Big Beer Series. 1080 OG; 76 IBU

This remarkably balanced brew has a deep amber hue with a generous white head. Hopmouth showcases a rich, toasty flavor and sweet caramel notes because of the high-quality Maris Otter Malt used. The hops are up front in the aroma reminiscent of citrus and pine, while the resin-like flavors linger well after the last sip.

Appearance: darker than expected; a rich, muddy orange color; a nice white head that thins out but sticks around

Aroma: citrus is the dominant smell-grapefruit and lemon mostly; hop is certainly present but not as strong as I was expecting; a little malty sweetness

Taste: follows the nose exactly; starts with some very nice citrus notes especially lemon; this flavor is sustained as some of the caramel sweetness from the malt comes in; that is displaced by a very nice hop kick at the end, with a subtle trace of pine; the hop sticks with you for quite a while afterwards, but this is a welcome and pleasant experience

Mouthfeel: thick…almost chewy; a bit clingy; carbonation is hidden by the thickness, but is there and I think it works pretty well

Overall Impression: no real surprises here, it’s everything you would expect from a good IPA (or DIPA as the case may be); not all that complex, but it doesn’t need to be; it’s very good for what it is and what it claims to be; a solid brew that I will look for again

Being a fan of Arcadia Brewing and of DIPAs, I fully expected to like this beer a lot. While it's not bad, the flavor profile and hops balance we're not what I expected. There was, perhaps, a hint of cardboard (or some other off flavor), and as the beer warmed a bit, the flavor shifted and lost some of the malty depth that it started with.
