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.

A - Pours an amberish color, thick finger head white and foamy, medium lacing.
S - Resinouy Pine hops, toasted malt, rye, dark caramel. All that you smell is kinda subdued.
T - You get all the smells in the flavor, but its weak. The hops aren't really pronounced, but you get some bitterness, and an odd soapy flavor. Not horrid, but not great.
M - Medium mouthfeel, bitterness and that soapy flavor hang on.
O - After having the regular IPA, this is not nearly as good as that, its not really refreshing, nor does it have a good development of flavors, not sure what to think here other than its a letdown.

Pours a cloudy dark copper with a finger of head that dissipates rather quickly. The nose is reminiscent of tangerines. There is definitely malt present and upfront in the flavor profile. Hops are present as well, but not at the volume found in most top tier DIPAs. The finish is semi-dry an a touch bitter. There is some definite booziness both before the finish and as part of the aftertaste.

I am not quite sure what I am drinking here. It's not really a DIPA, rather it is more like and Imperial ESB (if there is such a thing).

Served in a pint glass at Derby Station in EGR. Was a fairly dark amber color with a small amount of white foamy head. The aroma was mild, was expecting a far more aggressive hoppy smell but just a hint of pine. The taste was also surprising but pleasantly so - the piney hops were there at the start, but quickly faded. This beer is quite balanced, and the hops seemed to blend nicely with the malts. The carbonation helps balance the mouthfeel as well, had to watch myself as this went down very easy. Really nice beer.

This had a very good smell when first poured. I liked the darker color. The hoppy taste is something that I really enjoy. I have found that I like a more hoppy beer that plays with the taste buds now that I stopped smoking a few months back. This is a good beer I can get much easier in Michigan. I wish that the better beers would be easier to get.

12 oz bottle. no bottle coding what so ever.

A: pretty hazy brownish body. slightly brownish-white head sits on top.

S: smells hoppy while also smelling soapy. slightly oxidized while still managing to be hoppy. even fresh I feel like this brew may battle too much between malt and hops.

T: a little soapy. roasted dark grains make their presence right at the end. a quick tang to the hop flavor that preluded it. something a bit off, my guess would be the soapy flavor which would lead me to believe there was a problem with the bottle sanitization. a little burnt/smoke flavor as well.

M: average carb on a very medium/full body.

D: meh, muddied flavors and aromas, this is a big pass from me. sorry arcadia but you guys are gonna have to make some serious changes if you want this muddy mess to remain in your portfolio.
