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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

A- minimal amount of head over a light coppery brown body. What head there was quickly dissipated, no cap and the little lacing there was, was just a bit sticky.

S - very little aroma, almost no hop character at all. A touch of banana and apricot is all I picked up and it was faint. Really surprising considering its a DIPA.

T - ok, now it's a DIPA! Mostly pine, but not overbearing and a little maltiness. No lingering aftertaste which is bait surprising.

M - slightly creamy with decent carbonation, where was this when I poured it? Reasonably well balanced.

O - I am thinking this is a bit above average, pretty good,maybe like to try it on tap and not sure how fresh it was but bought it less than 20 miles from brewery so should be reasonably fresh.

Pours an amber-copper color, very cloudy except at the edges of the glass. The beige head sits at a quarter-inch for a while, leaving decent lacing on its way down. The nose is pretty aromatic and perfumey on the hop-side of things; slight spicy tones, roses, florals, moderate citrus, grapefruit, and faint apple. Quite a bit of bread and toasted malt on the nose as well. The beer is moderately thick and a bit sticky, not quite viscous enough to be called "syrupy", but certainly just outside of this range. Hop profile comes on strong and crowds the palate as expected; roses, perfume, white pepper spice, mild grapefruit rind, orange zest. Alcohol is a little noticeable, providing more than just a warmth - a slight rubbing alcohol flavor is coming off of it, but not enough to be too off-putting or undrinkable.

The malt backbone is more than just a backbone here - it takes on quite a bit of the flavor profile; light, toasted bread, faint caramel, crackers. Despite the high malt flavor, the hops never subside too much, remaining in tact through the entirety of the sip in a spicy, herbal, perfumey, and faintly floral manner. The aftertaste consists of a hefty helping of alcohol, faint herbal bitterness, and some bread and yeast that coats the edges of the mouth. On the low side of the carbonation scale.

Overall, not a bad brew from Arcadia. In my opinion, this one was much better than Hop Rocket. It wouldn't hurt the alcohol to be toned down just a bit, but it wasn't too bad.
