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

12 oz bottle-pours a creamy, rocky light tan head with hazy gold/yellow color. Aroma is faint light hops. Taste is hops with a bit of bite. Up to here middle of class & a 3.7. Aftertaste has a flatness that lingers, so a 3.1.

A thick pillow of head gently sits across a bronze gold ale. Aroma is very hoppy while also giving grapefruit, and sweet malt a chance. The flavor is of earth, grapefruit, floral flowers and sweet malt.

This beer poured with a little white head. Golden in color with a nice glaze. Slighty bitter and carmel taste. Not much of a finish for an IPA.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 Bottle: Smells hoppy and malty. Hint of caramel. Golden color. Average white head diminished quickly. Fair lacing. Tastes of hops and a little citrus. Medium sweet and a a little bitter. Finish is a bit yeasty and musty. Light to medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Overall, a weak IPA, despite the 7%. More just a pale ale.

Bottle. Pours gold amber. Smells like mild-sweet hopstink. Tastes like hoppy malt, decent balance. Good, very round & smooth. Worthy, solid offering. Doesnít taste like 7%, well concealed strength.

This is a "nothing special" IPA but something you could use as a good session beer.

2 bottles shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry & GregClow. Pours a hazy orange with a small fizzy white head. Mild aroma is mainly citrus hops with a touch of malt. Flavour of fresh juicy hops, very citrusy. Yup, thatís an American IPA alright and a decent one at that. Alcohol is present but not overly. Medium bodied. Not great but itís refreshing and tasty, I liked it.

Bottles shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, tupalev & jerc - courtesy of HogTownHarry and myself. Golden-amber colout with a small white head. Aroma is a little stale, but has some nice citric hop notes. Flavour is big, astringent hops - would work if there was enough body to back it up, but in this case, the hops verge on harshness, especially in the finish. Got a bit better once I had a few sips, but as much as I usually like hop-bombs, this one just didnít work for me.

Tmoney99 (13155) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Poured a hazy amber with aerage frothy white head that diminished quickly but produced good lacing. Heavy citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body. Same good hoppy flavor with an average finish.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
2 bottles shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, Hogtown Harry - courtesy of GregClow and Harry. Nice subtle citrus hop aroma. Dark yellow, small white head. Surprisingly strong hop taste, lots of alcohol too - very strong citrus hops. A little harsh, but flavourful - needs more body to back it up and balance it out. Lots of lingering citrus. Not bad!
