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.

12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a murky orange-amber color. The head is a two finger offwhite shade with a nicely consistent texture, even after much of it has receded. Lacing is patchy. S: Quite floral. There is a lot of pine, lavender, biscuit, and mild caramel. Not much citrus quality, sadly. T/M: Tastes like...well, an IPA. This one in particular starts off malty with notes of biscuit and toffee, while a light citrus quality pops up past the midtaste. It actually tastes a bit yeasty, and certainly feels that way. The heavy feel, chalky finish, and moderate astringency all take away from an otherwise balanced but bland IPA. I’d reckon its best feature is the building dryness on the aftertaste. O: I love the simple but retro labeling - shame the beer itself feels about 10 years behind the 8 ball. It’s too heavy-feeling to session and too mild for serious IPA drinkers. Others out there will like it, though.

Bottle from Rally gas station. Bottle looks kind of boring. Smell is not appetizing. Palate is average strength. Taste is a smooth hoppy dry. Easy to drink, but nothing special about this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Desverger (2121) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle from Toft Vin, Copenhagen - golden amber coloured pour with a good white head. Fruity and malty aroma and taste with some light caramel, some subtle tropical and citrus hoppy notes, some orange, peach, pretty thin body and easy drinking, feels more like a apa overall. Still decent enough overall.

From the bottle. A nice, hoppy IPA that has a little citrusy/sour taste. Not too strong of an IPA, so it drinks easy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sdaniel90 (387) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2014
3oz sample at Expo Cerveza Mexico 2014. Clear golden/amber with a creamy offwhite head. Earthy hoppy aroma, with strong hints of caramel, pine resin and green grapes. Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Sweet, with medium bitterness. Modest malt character overloaded with hop and citrus. Perhaps just a touch watery, and one-dimensional.

GenkiGonzo (280) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle from CBB. Clear gold, small white head. Fruity citrus hop aroma, though quite weak. Flavour has pine and grass hops to go with the citrus. Very light for the strength.
