BEER INFO

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.

Bought a 12 fl oz bottle of this from LOLA in St. Louis, MO for $6.50. Poured from the green labeled bottle w/ a Hop Man on the front into a 16oz Stella Artois Gold Rimmed Tulip Glass. Has no freshness date to be found.

Aroma- Has a nice grapefruit aroma that doesn't overload the nose but lets more attributes come around. Seems there is a great amount of citrus, combo of American and noble hops, and has a nice clean, maltiness in the background. Almost perfect but should have more punch for a 2X IPA.

Appearance- Pours a 2 finger head that has good retention. Has a deep amber colored body with some hazing but not much. Leaves thick lacing afterwards.

Flavor- A good, strong hop flavor starts this out with light sweetness behind it. Citrus is a huge attribute in here and has a medium-high bitterness level. Not much more and definitely not enough complexity to make it a big time brew for me.

Mouthfeel- Medium-Full Bodied, Medium Carbonation, and then hits the palate stronger than you can imagine! Makes up for the taste!

Overall Impression- I'll tell you what. You want a beer to hit your palate and finish off your taste buds, go for this one! The taste is pretty average and seems like only an American IPA. Would like to enjoy on-tap and have had many times before but my first time reviewing.

Poured from a bomber into a Sam Adams pint.

A: Pours a hazy, copper orange color with 1/2 finger of pale tan head. Some retention and lace.

S: Sherry, caramel and spice. Not very IPA-like, but really good.

T: Caramel up front, but then moves to a bitter pine that slowly fades back to the caramel, with both lingering in the aftertaste. Overall more of a hoppy barleywine than a Douple IPA, but still good. Bit of alcohol on the finish as well. Halfway through the glass, a little cola joins in.

M: Not too heavy, smooth with nice oil.

O: Couldn't find the freshness info on the label, so wondering whether this is past its prime. Doesn't taste bad, but coming across more as a barleywine than a double IPA. Regardless, a pleasant beer and one I'd be happy to buy again. First beer from Arcadia, and eager to try more.

A & S: sweet malts and piney & citrus hops. The smell isn’t too strong but its pretty darn nice smelling. Hazy orange-red colored beer. Off-white head that doesn’t hang around that long

T & M: piney hops come through huge in the taste. Pretty robust, reminds me a lot of hop crisis. Full bodied and smooth going down and then a sharp bit of carbonation hits your tongue. Well backed up malty tones and the body adds a good amount of chewiness to it.

O: very similar to a lot of doubles, but its still really good. I could drink this beer all day! I would also recommend it to anyone, I feel this beer is a bit underrated.
