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.

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.

Cooper color, white head. Sweet aroma. Malt character is sweet almost like white wine, minimal hop character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

""hop spicy" is a good description, but floral is not. for an average beer maybe, but not for an ipa. not bad, but underwhelming. not a good malt backbone for the bittering hops."

Garrold (1473) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle. StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear gold. Thin, sticky, white head. Quite grassy. Sweet, toffee malt. Green hop. Taste is dry, and woody, light earthy bitter. Full body. Good level of carbonation. Finishes grassy, pithy, long bitter. Maybe lacking a vibrancy, but it has racked up a few air miles. Still enjoyed this, though.

deyholla (6719) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a touch ofamber and a white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has earthy pine and grass with a grain backbone. Flavor has more of a bitter citrus and pine combination that is backed by a bit of light earthy grains.

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 (2163) - 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
