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

Pours a cloudy golden copper with a thick white head. Aroma is mostly malty, a little floral. Taste is of intense grapefruit, pine and citrus. Pretty sweet, with good malt backing. Taste has much more hops than the aroma would lead you to believe. VERY bitter and somewhat metallic aftertaste. Lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel is full, round and creamy. Nice lacing and head retention. Eventhough this doesn’t stand out, overall it’s a decent brew.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - SEP 13, 2004
Cloudy golden body with some orange hues. Large, creamy egg-shell colored head. Smells strongly of pine hops, the bright and crispy type, and also tonic water and light citrus. Taste is sweet and hoppy but suffers from some wateriness. Hops are very big and bright pine needles/cones, pineapple and some floral aromas. Aftertaste is drying, very strong hops.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2004
Bottle poured a cloudy darker yellow with a good but fading head. very weak aroma of hopps. Citrus and hopps flavor make this a very good refreshing easy drinking beer!!

BottleThis was hoppy, sweet and delicious. My first taste was of skunkweed :) Reminds me a lot of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale...one of my favorites. The only difference was the aroma wasn’t as pronounced as the SNCA.

Poured a medium hazy yellow color with an averaged sized head. Hoppy/grassy aroma. Citris and grassy taste. Nice bitter bite. Alcohol content well hidden. Decent IPA.

Nice big head and good mouthfeel, It is not overwhelming bitter like some higher rated US IPA’s. I found this one enjoyable

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Pours a dark golden color. Nose consists of hops and canned pears. Strong hoppy flavor, kind of sharp and bitter at times. Not extremely well rounded. Does have some good hop flavor going on. Finish is quite bitter.

obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - JUL 29, 2004
Slightly cloudy and w/ a pale orange color. Little or no head with somewhat big bubbles. Nice nose of apricot, slight citrus, and some pine. Palate is not bad with a hoppy bitter finish, though the flavors don’t seem fully developed. Some nice pine, and apricot, very fresh flavors. Not bad but not the most exciting IPA

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Clear deep golden body, moderate carbonation, and soft, frothy white head that left significant lace. Cheesy-citrus hop and butterscotch maltiness in the nose. Flavor is metallic and resinous. Spicy hop quality dominates the flavor and doesn’t allow any malt or yeast character to come through. Another underwhelming Acme beer.
