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.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 2, 2005
12oz bottle. 51 degrees. Served in NB "worthy" tulip glass. Dark orange color with an off white head and nice lacing. Orange blossom honey aroma, sweet and citrusy. Hops-driven taste with citrus fruits. Not too bitter, but with a nice bite. Nice mouthfeel. Dry finish with nice citrusy residual flavors. Easy drinking beer that could easily get you in trouble @ 7.1%. Thanks Jay!

Poured an orange with a small white bubbly head that faded quickly. Fruity hop aroma. Nice fruity hop taste. Not as powerful as some of the other California IPAís.

(12 oz bottle: Trader Joeís in Pacific Beach, CA) This is a somewhat pedestrian IPA, not tremendously flavorful, but itís pleasant enough to be a okay session IPA. Moderate malty character is lightly bready and is matched by a moderately bitter and citrusy hoppiness, and the two stay in balance from start to finish. The finish tastes a bit like unsweetened ice tea. Not a whole lot of aromas to this beer, but itís mildly bready and hoppy. Medium bodied. Light golden color and somewhat cloudy. Plenty of off-white head during the pour, and thanks to significant assistance from rapidly rising carbonation bubbles, retention is pretty solid, maintaining a nice cap on the beer. Patchy lacing is also pretty decent.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 20, 2004
Hazy golden, white creamy head. Uninspired nose of citrus, florals, toffee, with some light bready notes. Well bittered and decently balanced with the sweet malt. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, drying bitter finish. Donít go out of your way....

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Appearance: clear, deep orange hue, with a full, frothy white head. Aroma: big hops, grapefruit, pineapple, orange, large fruit in the nose, very enticing and inviting. On the palate, smooth, and very mellow, without too much tumult on the tongue. Solid body, excellent balance, and possessing a very nice flavor which lasts and lasts, persisting on the palate. Yum, yum. I was hoping for a hoppier bite, and had to realize that a good IPA doesnít have to be a Ruination or Dreadnaught. Sometimes, they can "just" be smooth and delcious, like this one.

Unexpectedly smoother than it brown ale counterpart. Not as hoppy as I anticipated. Outdoorsy aroma, citrus undertones int he taste. Not so bad.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Aroma is hoppy but in a rather restrained way by todays IPA standards. Some citrus and caramel in the nose. Pours cloudy light orange with a very well retained off white head. The flavor is hoppy with some malt balance, but again there is just not a big enough hop bite to make this an IPA winner. Call me spoiled, but pass the AleSmith.

Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Slightly hazy straw-colored body, thin clumping off-white head. Citrus and pine hops aroma with some caramel. Nice fresh piney and earthy hops flavor with touches of citrus rind. Enough sweet caramely malts and biscuit to balance the fresh hops. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Not too shabby.
