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

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Bottle. Pours gold amber. Smells like mild-sweet hopstink. Tastes like hoppy malt, decent balance. Good, very round & smooth. Worthy, solid offering. Doesn’t taste like 7%, well concealed strength.

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

blankboy (7051) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2005
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, that’s an American IPA alright and a decent one at that. Alcohol is present but not overly. Medium bodied. Not great but it’s refreshing and tasty, I liked it.

GregClow (3067) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2005
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 didn’t work for me.

Tmoney99 (12994) - 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!

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2005
Bottle. Orangey amber body, with a small white head. Slight chill haze. Big hop aroma, mild citrus and green leafy characterisics. Very bitter, almost astringent flavour with intense grapefruit and touch of lemon, not enough malt to balance the almost obnoxious hops. Average palate.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 15, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2005 Bottle (2x12oz). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, tupalev - courtesy of GregClow and yours truly. Poured slightly hazy orange with a smallish foamy head. Aroma - vague hops, strong bitter grapefruit hops; not balanced. Taste is mostly harsh grapefruit pith hops - mouthfell thin and very teeth-cleaningly astringent - not a great west coast IPA, linger is too sharp and long.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Bottle. Medium white head with nice lacing. Copper body. Hoppy aroma, grass and a bit of citrus. Hoppy flavor, dryness up front, softer finish. My bottle says 6.5% abv, and it could use a tad bit more malt for a balance with the hops. Little bit of a metallic taste. Otherwise, okay and quite drinkable.

ross (2128) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2005
from the bottle, sweet grassy smelling and tasting. not a bad effort, not the best from this brewing company tho. id take red seal any day over this one. (or rasputin). highly drinkable, and really smooth. not bad, not the best, but not bad.
