COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Acme IPA is profoundly hoppy, finished with over a pound of fresh whole hops per barrel. The result of this generous hopping is a beer that is deliciously dry, and eminently drinkable in spite of its apparent strength.
2012 vintage: 6.9% abv

Bottle: I enjoyed this IPA. It poured a beautiful, frothy, white head with thick & chunky lacing. It displayed a clear gold color. The hops were grapefruit hints as you would expect with little malts. Others notes in the aftertaste were grass/hay. It sticks around for a while and has a great feel in the mouth. Does well in its category.

A nice average IPA... Very bitter with nice color and aroma. Has flavor and smell of light citrus

Pours a light orangish color that seems a bit peculiar when compared to other IPA’s. Smells of hops followed by some sort of pungent scent. Almost like slight oxidation. Upon first taste it’s hops as usual but as it warms/lingers in your mouth you can taste the fruitiness of the hops and as it fades away you can pick up the caramel malt. Better then I expected it still doesn’t measure to my ideal IPA. Lacks the fruitiness from the hops.

this was a little disapointing. smelled a little funky, but tasted fine. it was a clear light orange, felt a little thin, but was nice and hoppy. i probobly won’t go back to this one.

A hazy orange beer with a nice orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy with the hops oils coming thru, but also some caramel. The flavor is very hoppy, here the hop oils also make their presence, combined with some lesser grass notes and a very dry bitter end.

first off i gotta say i was surprised at the light appearance on this one.it was a dark yellow with little head.the aroma was mostly citrus style hops.the lemon smell dominated my nose.the taste had the citrus hops too,and then came a bit of a chemical aftertaste that i could have done without.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2005
Pours slightly hazy orange golden and a fluffy white head. Mild aroma, little hoppy with creamy and fruity notes. Hoppy and grassy flavor with a fruity base. Not very much flavor and pretty ordinary.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2005 More like a strong-ish PA than a true "California IPA." Somewhat creamy mouthfeel and fruity taste without a major hopkick. Orange taste. Grassy and mild.

Golden. No head. This is a classic IPA. The beer is well balanced. Hoppy, bitter finsih, however, still fresh and not alcoholic. A great example of how a decent IPA should be.
