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

Deep amber with a small creamy head. Aroma is fruity hops. Flavour is bitter and lacks complexity. Hard to believe this is brewed by the people at North Coast.

On tap at brewery...decent beer, very bitter grapefruit aftertaste that is a bit robust and long lasting. No balance in flavor, mildly sweet, much stronger sour//bitter. Medium-light body...didn’t notice until now the 7.1% alcohol--that was very well masked, although not unexpected with an IPA.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Tap @ Blind Tiger. Had the bottled version a while back and wasn’t overly impressed but the tap version was much better than I remembered. Citrus and floral hop aroma. Taste is typical West Coast IPA style, but a bit lighter. 7.1 masked very nicely.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2004
Tap@North Coast. Hoppy, as usual, but a lot more subtle than other Californian IPA’s. Lychee and pine, with more malty/grainyness.

Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2004
Clear light orange amber with a medium diminishing off white head. Floral aroma of citrus - mostly grapefruit and orange, honey, light bread, and pine. Medium lightly syrupy body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Refreshing. Woody flavor of grapefruit, caramel, honey, and pine with a hint of ginger. Somewhat astringent, a little hard and unbalanced, but still drinkable. Good.

Malty for an American IPA, well balanced. Nice complexity. Easily drinkable for its strength.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2004
(draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm, Sweden) Amber with a white thick head. . Weak aroma of hops and grass. Not very impressive flavour. Wuite thin, a bit hoppy and forgetable flavour. Hoppy but boring aftertaste.

omhper (19436) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2004 Sampled draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm.
Clear pale amber, small head. Sweaty, fruity hoppy nose. Very dry. Clean, hard mouthfeel. Just loads of hops. The malt profile is plain and simple, but the hops creates all kinds of sensations: grassy- herbal, salty licorice, fruity grapefruit. Very bitter finish, of course.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 12, 2004
Nice amber pour with a huge rocky white head. Sheets o lace. Citrus and piney hops, hins of malt underlying in the aroma. Flavor brings out the bitterness. Nicely balanced with malts. Some touches of spice in there. Smooth and refreshing. Bitter bite of alcohol there at the end.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 8, 2004
The aroma is citrusy with some cascades & a decent maltiness. Bright orange/gold color, decent head , sticky and light. The flavor is lightly bitter, balanced. Finishes like a standard IPA would.
