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

A bit of candi sugar, lots of grapefruit and grass in the nose. Flavor is sweet citrusy with a malty backbone. Dry, hoppy finish. Nice creamy body

deep golden color, thick frothy beige head, aroma is mostly citrus hops, flavor is moderately hopped, lightly malted...what a poorly written rating.

Pours cloudy tan with no head. Lighter look than most IPAs. Taste is earthy with average hops. Looks almost like a hefeweizen. Average.

Loved the light fruity aroma of this Ale. Nice and dry also. I did not notice the extra kick associated with 7.1 beers.

sloth (2624) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Small white head fair retention and lace. Light fruity nose. Clear light blond color. Light body, over carbed. Flowery hop flavors with a light malt backing. Dry, hop stinging finish. Whooof.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2004
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.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 19, 2004
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.

3.3

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.
