Hopmouth Double IPA

Get ready for this one folks, because Hopmouth is awesome!  Made by Arcadia Ales of Battle Creek, MI, this beer has great clarity, plenty of carbonation, a nice 1″ head and a deep amber color with a copper cast.  The hoppiness that comes off the head has a great floral, piney bouquet, notes of bread dough within, and an underlying, understated sweetness.  Hopmouth is full-bodied but not heavy, and rich, really rich.  The flavor…excellent!  The hops are not too intense or bitter, but very pronounced.  Lots of bready, grainy flavor in the very rich malt.  The finish is not too dry, not too bitter, and the 8% ABV is just icing on the cake.  Excellent beer!   95/100
