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.

Sampled from bottle. Acme pours clear orange-gold with a creamy, light-tan head and notable lacing. Aroma is floral/grapefruit citrus hops and hard candy. Flavor is nicely bitter with piney/citrus hops, toasted, bready malt and a bit of plum. Medium bodied, light to moderate carbonation. Bitterness lingers. This is a new beer for Oklahoma, and while it’s a far cry from what I’d consider a ’great IPA’, I’m happy to have it in the rotation. It’s worth a try.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Bottle - big floral hop nose, some grassy hops as well. It subsides as the head dies down. That head is white. It sits atop a dark straw colored body. I’m surprised by the flavor. A mellow hop flavor that gently yields to the sweet malt backbone. Very soft palate. Would love to try this one on cask!

Not a lot of aroma for the style, but what is there has a pleasnt new mown hay aroma. Very light color, absolutely clear with a compact head and decent lacing. Flavor did not really have enough of a hoppy body, with a slight astringent quality. Decent but not great IPA.

This beer is great! I absolutely love Old Rasputiin Inperial Stout from North Coast, and this is on par with that offering as an IPA. I think North Coast might be my favorite American brewery. Too bad I can only pick up Red Seal Ale regularly in my neighborhood.

Dorwart (2402) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Large white frothy head. Pretty good duration. Light carbonation. Light floral hoppy aroma with a hint of lime. Color is a medium gold. Primarily floral and lime in the flavor with a bit of biscuity malt. Finish is sort of fruity with a light hop bitterness. Ok but nothing special.

Maddog (407) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2005
I was quite disappointed in this brew, considering it is an IPA from a very respected brewer. It has decent bittering hops, however, it just falls off the cliff from there. There is not a flavor hop presence nor an aroma hop presence to speak of. This IPA lacks any flavor distinctions whether that be hoppy or malty. It would even fall short in a Pale Ale category. Very thin in body.

12 oz bottle. Great look: thick lacing, lasting moderate foamy head, hazy apricot body....simple, refreshing orangy-apricot nose, touch acerbic but mostly sweet...body fairly low in the bitterness, sweet and fruity, rather syrupy, moderate caramelly malts...drinkable but quite ordinary.

Bottle, Happy Deli, NYC. More like a placeholder IPA than anything else, and verging into the syrupy. Hrm.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Poured a hazy copper. Uneven head that lasted along with good lacing. There is only a hint of a hop aroma. Flavor consists of bitter hops and alcohol. Not too complex. Leaves a dry, crisp mouthfeel with high carbonation. Not as flavorful as many IPA’s I’ve had. On the weak side, bodywise. If you like hoppy ales, this one is worth a try.

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.
