3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a very clear copper colored body with a huge three finger foamy white head, there is no carbonation seen rising. Some spider web lacing is seen around the sides of the glass.
The smell had the malts up front, lemon and orange present themselves as the beer warms.
The taste had a refreshing light crisp maltiness to it that I like as well as some pine presence comes out in the taste.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium with some bitter sharpness on the tongue, but a good sharpness.
Overall, this is a good beer. I would say this is a mostly drinkable beer that I would definitely seek out again.

Bottle at Big Bite. Aroma of piney grassiness. Taste is similarly hoppy - bitter and grassy but sort of unbalanced. Slight apple taste. Very dry finish. Not as good as I remembered.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Acme California IPA bottle poured into pint glass. Aroma: Smells like grapefruits and I love that smell. Appearance: Golden 2 fingers worth of head that lingers for a few minutes. Tastes like how it smells bitter taste of grapefruits and I like the taste personally. Mouth-feel very hoppy and dry bitter aftertaste but I like it wish it had more body though. I enjoyed this beer good start for the for the first California beer I rated on this site.
