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.

Gold color with a very foamy head. Musty hop aroma. Woah... tastes like sweet tarts! That’s bizzare for a supposedly bitter beer. Some bitter malts come in at the end, but that sweet candy flavor really screwed up this beer for me.

DocLock (9363) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2005
Hazy copper pour with hopcit and some spice aroma. Tastes hoppy, with some floral spicyness and citrus. Dry finish with slightly dilute mouthfeel.

bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - APR 25, 2005
poured a cloudy amber with a medium sized off white head. Mild citrus hop aroma, medium bodied with a nice citrus hop flavor balanced nicely with caramel malt. Not near as hoppy as I like my IPA’s, but still a pretty solid beer.

All hops -- Northwestern Hops, omnipresent but not harsh. Well, that’s about all there is to the character of this beer. But the hops hide the 7.1% _extremely_ well.

Brewtopia ’05. This was ok for an IPA. There was not the over powering hops, but the balance was ok.

04.16.05 Brewtopia ’05 Another I’d have never gotten around to buying if not for the fest. Mild aromas emerge from a clear amber pour. Big tan head with much lacing. Bubblegum, orange, chewy. Nice balance, clean finish, lasting bitterness. A pretty standard west coast IPA.

Nice IPA. Appearance is cloudy, sparkling with a small white head. Citrusy hoppy flavor. A bitter, long finish. There’s a new label design on the bottle which is just beautiful. :-)

Pours to a amber/orange color with a nice aroma. Hoppy and citursy flavor. A pretty good IPA that I’d buy again.

yeast, citric aroma with some grassiness; some toasty caramelness; metallic, substantial grapefruity hoppiness and everlasting bitterness; a heart-burner

Bottle Pourr a slightly hazy orange amber with a decent white head. Letting this settle down leaves thin clingy lacing. Aroma is malty and not as much hops as I was expecting from the style. Flavor redeems itself though. Rich maltiness and I think a nicely balanced hop bite. Feels quite smooth and rich. fairly heavy and yes the ABV is up there a tad. It al works and I find this to be quite good.
