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.

aplus01 (71) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Aroma - Very malty, lots of caramel and bread in the nose. Not as hoppy as the california moniker would suggest. Appearance - clear and golden in color with moderate amount of head. Taste - The malt/hop balance is skewed toward the malt with enough bitterness to keep it from being too sweet. Palate - medium bodied with appropriate levels of carbonation. Overall - A solid IPA. Would recommend to those who enjoy hoppy beers but not necessarily a hop bomb.

MarcoDL (3216) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
At Craft & Draft. Aroma of bitters and nettle. Flavor of yeast, pine and sweet fruit. Like a Belgian beer. Not very good.

seymour (1750) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into Spieglau IPA glass, clear golden with sudsy white foam, long-lasting with lace. If you occasionally crave an old school 1990s microbrew flagship IPA, this one still rocks your way (think Alimony Ale, Abita Jockamo, Anchor, Sierra Nevada, etc.) I still love this time-tested Cluster & Northern Brewer combo. Prototypical A-IPA aromas and flavours, sharp resiny bitterness, grapefruit, orange marmalade, lime leaves, grassy, weedy, minty, black pepper spice, dank, almost musky in a cool way. Some husky grainbill complexity underneath too, with hints of biscuit, caramel. Light body, strong carbonation, some alcoholic heat in the aroma but less in the flavour, nice round mouthfeel and long-lasting bittersweet aftertaste. Complex and classic. Recommended.

jesperhammer (3688) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2015
03-OCT-2015, bottle @home, from Fish & Beer. Hazy orange with lasting almost white head. Very piney and bitter. Fruity and a bitterness that is somewhat like the peel white. Orange is there. Bitterness a bit too much, some sweetness. OK IPA but nothing special.

Cunningham (6056) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 10, 2015
Hazy dark golden color with a off white head. Floral, citric and mild resin in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an average carbonation. Tad sweet and a fine bitterness. Citric, toffee and some resin in the flavor. Decent tasty ale.
[Bottle at People´s outside Sentrum Cene in Oslo (Norway) before a Whitesnake concert]

Huhzubendah (3097) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Clear golden body with a dense white head, copious lacing. Aromas of biscuit, malt, a hint of pine. Balance of malt / hops with moderate bitterness. Mediocre.

tfontana (304) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is resinous hops over bready malts. Appearance is clear gold with three finger-width frothy white head with good retention, good lacing and excellent sparkle. Taste is interplay of light sweet malt with mild bitter. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, average carbonation and dry balanced sweet/bitter finish. Overall, a beer with surprising balance given its hoppy deScription.
