Arcadia HopMouth Double IPAArcadia HopMouth Double IPA

Brewed by:
Arcadia Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

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.

12 oz bottled poured into a snifter.

Pours a slightly hazy, dark amber with a frothy off-white head.

Nose is prominently hops, as expected, showing citrus and pine, with a decent malt backbone to hold them up. Citrus and pine up front on first few sips, with some sweet malt coming in fairly strong at the end. Lingers for a few seconds on the tongue after swallowing. Alcohol is well hidden. Light to medium bodied, with light carbonation. Well-balanced on the whole.

Had this on tap during the Ortino Northside DIPA event.

Don't know quite what to make of this one. It pours a solid orange color and looks pretty impressive. There is good head retention and lacing, with lots of orange citrus on the nose. The orange aroma is actually pretty sweet and I have to say this beer does not smell all that hoppy. On the palate this is very much a light weight DIPA (and frankly really doesn't seem deserving of the name - it's that light). Flavors are pleasant; the beer starts off fairly sweet, but quickly turns very dry, with a real drop off in flavor. The beer has a very light mouthfeel and tastes more like a middle of the road pale ale then a DIPA. Abv. doesn't seem too high, but is still noticeable.

This is a nice beer, but is really nothing special. Doubt I will order this one again.

On-tap into pint glass.

Appearance: Has a nice amber color that is semi-transparent. Has a pretty small head, but still looks appetizing.

Smell: Has a mild hop aroma with some sweetness lingering. I expected more hops for a double ipa.

Taste: Has a subdued malt flavor with a mild hop kick. Again, I expected a little more of a hop presence.

Mouthfeel: Has a fair body that's not too thin.

Drinkability: It's pretty good. However, I do have to say that I feel there are better versions of this style out there.
