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

Tap@ brewery. Why is everything there on nitro? It dulls the flavor and the hoppiness. Well, this beer was color of lemon grass and could have been a lot better unfiltered and off a regular tap.

This is a very good IPA. Not as bitter and snappy as Lagunitas which I really enjoy, but I thought Ballentine IPA was the best.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - APR 5, 2003
Pale golden amber. Sticky off-white head. Stinky pale malty nose. Lots of carbonation, pale malts first, light bodied, finishes spicy, big bitter hop bite. Drinkable, the alcohol is hidden.

Holdwine (1075) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2003
Slightly disappointing. This brew did not live up to its rep. That said, there is a lot to like about it. First of all, a thick white head sits on a nice golden pour. Strong hops aroma, another good thing. Then there is the taste shock. Yes it is 7.1%, and yes it is well hidden by the hops, but there is an old chemical taste (almost pine sol) when all is said and done. Not what they were aiming for. Everything else about this ale is good.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2003
Golden color witha a frothy head. A hop aroma with orange rind and pine. A bitter hop flavor with caramel malt.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2003
Orangish gold in color with a small head that sticks to the glass. Light bitterness, dry, smooth and citrusy.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - MAR 5, 2003
Medium yellow/gold with a 1 finger head. Light aroma doesn't give away the hops too much. Balanced on the hops side, sweet malt is there but there seems to be a piney hop that sticks out, although I am not having a problem with it. Overall a decent IPA I would have again.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - FEB 5, 2003
Nice light orange color with a small white head. The aroma was sour at first, then pure grapefruit. The flavor was not very interesting except for the finish which is probably the sharpest, most bitter taste I've ever experienced. I wouldn't be surprised if they actually added grapefruit juice to this beer!

Terminus (3229) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JAN 21, 2003
this wasn't bad, but not up there on the top if the class-tastes alot like other california ipa's such as anderson valley.

Pours with a thin head. Not too much carbonation. Hazy golden color. Really hoppy and bitter. Citrus in the finish.
