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

Not your typical IPA, which is fine with me. The color is a nice orange-amber with a light head and some lacing. It has an definite lemon pepper smell. The flavor is a bit malty, with an earthy slightly tangy finish. It is not very bitter at all. I guess this makes it an English style IPA. A nice drinking beer.

Another disappointing IPA with citrusy American hops.

This was not good. Super foamy, carbonated, almost sour flavor with mild hop bitterness. This is the strangest ipa I have ever had. Lots of sediment in there too, and not in a good way. Sometimes it can be appealing, this looked like dirt and sand.

Would Drink Again: No
Would Purchase Again: No
