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.

jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2004 Light golden, nice head and lace. Moderatley hoppy nose, sprucy and piney. Medium bodied, nicely hopped, malt base seems a little weak, some floral notes as well. Slightly warming with some off putting metallic notes in finish. Decent but shouldn't skimp on the malt.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Golden yellow in color with decent head, tiny effervescent bubbles, and lots of lacing. Middling floral aroma. Taste is all citric hops with little to balance it. Tastes a lot like a hoppy American Standard. Decent beer, drinkable, but not near other quality beers from Cali.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Extremely sharp citrus hop at front of every sip, like knives slicing into your tongue. Great beginning, but there's just that little problem of "where's the malt?" - After that initial shock, the rest is juicy and full of resin, but just too thin overall. Looked great - hazy orange.

ClarkVV (5858) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Gold/straw, slightly hazy, thin white head, not much lacing. Weak hops aroma. Fairly large flavor of alpha hops, hay, some light floral tones and more bittering hops. Body is medium, mouthfeel is creamy, lots of air, but not peppery carbonation. Very good malt balance. It's always nice to have a good IPA to go to when you get tired of those somewhat over-the-top double IPAs. If this is North Coast's budget beer line, I couldn't tell.

Love the style, but this beer didn't impress. Nothing special here. Reminiscent of Lagunitas IPA but without the full flavor. A little too watered down for my taste.

raymow (1443) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2003
I wasn't all that impressed with this IPA. Not much of an aroma and doesn't taste all that good either. It does have some hop flavor but it leaves a bitter, medicinal aftertaste. The appearance is about the best aspect of this brew, in my opinion.

wildchefbill (245) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2003 Pours amber with a nice off white head. A good hoppy aroma. The flavor starts sweet but quickly gives way to bitter (grapefruit) hop flavor and very dry aftertaste. Nice hop flavor that is strong but not overly sharp. Drank very smooth. A nice IPA.

OldGrowth (3266) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Bottle: Ok nose. Sour citrus orange/grapefruit that dulls the more you sniff it. Clear orange yellow color. Head that stayed for a while,clung to side of glass. Green hops taste, Pretty bitter, very one sided as the pale malts make little difference. Bitterness lasts a while. Very drinkable though.
