Brewed by:
Arcadia Brewing Company
Michigan, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial IPA

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This Imperial IPA has an assertive aroma of sticky, resinous Summit hops. A complex flavor profile includes notes of grapefruit, lemon peel, and spruce. Though the flavor focus is on hops, a trio of malts provides a balance to the beer, creating a delicious level of palatability. Hints of caramel, toffee and freshly-baked biscuits are also apparent in the flavor profile.

A - Pours a hazy copper with a thin white head. Nice amount of sticky lacing.

S - Nose has a nice mix of piney hops and sweet citrus.

T - Starts off sweet with a nice mix of citrus and heavy caramel malts. Hops really come through in the finish. The alcohol is noticeable throughout.

M - Medium bodied with low carbonation. Sticky syrupy mouthfeel.

O - A decent DIPA. Definetly worth trying.

A - Poured a nice 2 finger white head with a crystal clear light golden amber body. Appears well carbonated.

S - Nice and balance hop malt aroma. Hops are earthy, mango, citrus, a slight pungent hop aroma of simco, this is balanced with malty sweetness of caramel. Very pleasant to smell.

T - Lots of hops right up front of pungent dank hops, lemon rind, a floral flavor, slight mango, additional malt sweetness to balance this one out. Not as citrusy as the smell was. The heat can be felt on the back of the throat.

M - This is a full bodied fluffy soft feeling chewy brew. Very nice but the hop bitterness is agressive on the palate and you will notice after a while. High carbonation balance this creamy fluffy mouth of this.

O - This is a great beer to have once in a while, and is a definite unique brew; every hop head should seek this one out. It is pricey but has some stand out qualities. Not my favorite hops, but still delivers a massive amount of hops. Try one and see what you think. Cheers!
