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.

Bottled, Stockholm Beer Festival. Cloudy golden. Citrusy nose with a tang of apricot as well. Big dryness all along, astringent or not, I like it. A balanced hopmonster.

Hoppy nose with citrus and some tropical fruit. Flavor is hoppy with notes of citrus and apricot. The hopes then grows stronger in the finish.

This is by far the worst IPA I’ve ever tasted. The label is different on mine - the one with the girl swinging from a rope. Also, the alcohol content is stated as 6.5%. I don’t think I can finish this glass and I’m taking the rest back to the store tomorrow.

Bottle. Awesome hop presence: aroma and flavor. Nice head and lacing. On taste, however, this ale is a bit thin/light/weak - is that what is meant by a "Californian" IPA. Alcohol very well hidden.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - SEP 20, 2004
bottled: this was a very one dimensional beer. an astringent bitter hop flavor with not much more going on.... the hops didnt really have any disernable flavors just tangy and bitter and weak. the three beers i had of theirs were all very similiar with varying degrees of this same flavor.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Medium gold color - slightly hazy with a light head. Sllightly perfumy nose, almost non existant. Grassy, a littly chewy witha good, dry, hoppy finish. Quenching, albeit a bit thin.

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.
