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

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2004
Poured a golden amber with a thin white head that managed to last. Hoppy aroma with hints of grapefruit and lightly toasted malt. Very bitter and peppery. Mild pale malt with hints of citrus. Dry finish, with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Slightly watery finish. One dimentional beer. Relies too much of hops and nothing else. Not balanced out. A decent and drinkable beer, but there's no balance.

Clear golden orange with a nice white frothy head. Mildly citrus aroma. The flavor is quite bitter with almost no malt balance. Overall it is drinkable but not that great. I did not realize this was a North Coast brew until after I bought it, as Oakes said before me, this is not up to their standards.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2004
Golden-bronze colour. Lemony, piney aroma. Very bitter body, with woody notes and lots of toastiness. Long, bitter finish. Unbalanced. I can understand why North Coast wants to give this a different brand - it's not up to their standards at all.

Straw/golden yellow Colour. Fluffy white disappearing head. Very good lacing. Aroma of pine, spruce and fir. Pleasant hop aroma and taste. Medium bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

Bottle. A great looker beer. Amber colored with a big white head. Smell is of grapefruit (and slightly skunked - it's in a brown bottle). The beer has an IPA bitterness, but the flavor is more spicey/bready/and some hops. It isn't quit7e right for the beer. Otherwise, finishes dry and a little acidic.

LIghtly hazed dark golden liquid with a moderate of white head. Spicy hops and light butterscotch aromas. Mild malt and hops mixed with a touch of oxidation.

cherr (162) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 31, 2004
I had this beer on tap. The color is a light golden/amber. The smell is of fruits/hops. The taste is a lightly malty/more hop aftertaste. Good for a PA, weak for an IPA.

ZepolK (102) - South Side Montebello, California, USA - JAN 30, 2004
Mild pine/hop aroma with light color and carbonation. Flavor is very bitter with some nice spicy hop taste and unfortunately turns harshly odd. Medium mouth feel with a nice dry finish, but that soon fades and a harsh bitter after taste that lingers way too long. I really didn't get an IPA sense from this brew, more of some IPA/Spice combination that doesn't work.

I must've had a bad six-pack because I could not detect any hop flavor in this IPA. Tasted pretty bad, maybe light struck. I'll try it again if someone else buys.
