3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into Spieglau IPA glass, clear golden with sudsy white foam, long-lasting with lace. If you occasionally crave an old school 1990s microbrew flagship IPA, this one still rocks your way (think Alimony Ale, Abita Jockamo, Anchor, Sierra Nevada, etc.) I still love this time-tested Cluster & Northern Brewer combo. Prototypical A-IPA aromas and flavours, sharp resiny bitterness, grapefruit, orange marmalade, lime leaves, grassy, weedy, minty, black pepper spice, dank, almost musky in a cool way. Some husky grainbill complexity underneath too, with hints of biscuit, caramel. Light body, strong carbonation, some alcoholic heat in the aroma but less in the flavour, nice round mouthfeel and long-lasting bittersweet aftertaste. Complex and classic. Recommended.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
03-OCT-2015, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer.
Hazy orange with lasting almost white head.
Very piney and bitter. Fruity and a bitterness that is somewhat like the peel white. Orange is there. Bitterness a bit too much, some sweetness. OK IPA but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy dark golden color with a off white head. Floral, citric and mild resin in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an average carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Citric, toffee and some resin in the flavor. Decent tasty ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is resinous hops over bready malts. Appearance is clear gold with three finger-width frothy white head with good retention, good lacing and excellent sparkle. Taste is interplay of light sweet malt with mild bitter. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and dry balanced sweet/bitter finish. Overall, a beer with surprising balance given its hoppy description.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Âmbar,líquido um tanto turvo,boa turbidez,creme mediano com boa manutenção;aroma resinoso,cítrico,notas maltados em segundo plano;no sabor uma leve presença de malte e caramelo ajudam a balancear o amargor que embora não tão intenso predomina do começo ao fim e persistindo no retrogosto,o que de algum modo prejudicou um pouco o conjunto e a drinkability.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle of a six pack, amber with orange hue with a nice white collar. Nice easy drinking IPA, and I like the old school looking pin up labeling. I liked this beer but I was expecting a bit more from the company that brought us such great inventions as the "do-it yourself tornado kit", "jet propelled pogo stick" and everyone’s favorite made popular by acme: "the anvil". If the acme name is to go on a beer it should be comparable to products like "rocket powered roller skates", and needs to be 8%.

Very faint aroma of hops, and some pine. Deep yellow orange color with a huge tan head. Sweet rich malt up front. Very sweet. Some hints of caramel. Bitterness is light at first, intensifies. Dry bitterness with not much character. Meh.
