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.

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 (20174) - 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.

ruffian (149) - montvale, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Slightly cloudy golden color. Spicy citrus hop aroma with rich malt mixed in. Same goes with the taste, warm spicy citrus with full malt body. Nice mouthfeel. More hops in the aroma as the glassed warmed.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2004
Clear light orange with a huge foamy white head. Grassy orange aroma, light mouthfeel and starts and ends lightly bitter, with some more bitterness coming out at the end. An OK beer, but pretty wussy for an IPA.

Maybe its just me, but after driving for 2 hours on the coast highway last summer the North Coast Brewery was a site for soar eyes. I love IPA’s so i had a couple pints and it was well worth the drive.
