Beer Review, Arcadia IPA

Arcadia IPA
Battle Creek, MI
5.9% ABV

Appearance: Orangish-yellow, very hazy, with a thin white head that sticks around. Pretty much perfect for the English IPA style. 4.5/5

Smell: Crisp white hops with a slight citrus underneath. Strong notes of grapefruit and hints of lemon. 4.5/5

Taste: Strong lemon flavor up front, followed by a crisp hoppiness. Finishes dry but also sweet. As with a lot of English IPAs, it's very slightly cloying. 4.0/5

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation, high hops. Thickness moderate. 4.0/5

Drinkability: A very nice English IPA. Love to try it on-tap at some point. 4.0/5

Overall: 4.2/5
