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

California ipa de 6,9 % abv, et 36 cl de contenu (merci). Mon exemplaire était à 3 mois de sa date limite. Couleur doré soutenu brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes, sur les parois. Mousse blanc cassé à flocons fins, nappage stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt fin, agrumes, pointe de fruits confits, orange, pointe de melon et d’anis étoilé. Superbe nez. 1ère bouche souple au magnifique ensemble malt/houblon/agrumes/herbes fines. Arrière-bouche dense, forte, très harmonieuse. Superbe. 2ème à la remarquable poursuite, avec une pointe d’épices. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, à l’amertume extraordinaire. 3ème avec densité, précision, équilibre, ampleur. Arrière-bouche superbement riche. Longueur au développement magistral de l’amertume. Jambes à flocons moyens, serrées, longues. Levure fine, aux subtiles nuances, très grande ligne. Alcool au très beau niveau, avec un contrôle absolu de l’ensemble et des saveurs. Finale grandiose. CONCLUSION : quel plaisir immense que de retrouver une vraie américaine, made in USA, qui plus est en Californie, après quelques françaises qui n’en avaient que l’étiquette !!!!!!&# grande bière de cette brasserie classée dans les 10 meilleures du monde par le « beverage testing institute ».

I am (once again) sipping as I’m writing. I think I possibly just discovered my favorite beer. I love the strong hoppiness and the rich body. Great bite and nice aroma and...I love the label. Very 1920’s. This IPA is the best beer I’ve tasted in a very long time. Run out and get it if you can. I found my bottle at Trader Joes.

Delicious fruity and hoppy - similiar to Smuttynose IPA Despite being so damn hoppy it is very drinkable. Cheers to the North Coast Brewery!

Ice cold and bottled. Smell is of floral notes. Good hoppy aroma and the taste is sweet and smooth. Wonderful golden color not dark IPA. Good brew. Would recommend.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass Aroma- Has a nice malt and fruit aroma Appearance- Pours a murky golden amber with a nice off-white head Taste- Hops come through nicely, with some malt as a backup. very flavorful Palate- A medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. This beer has a crisp finish. Overall- A really enjoyable beer, I will drink this again.

Poors a medium-high bodied copper with a decent head on it. The hops waft up from this baby high avove the glass--mmm! It’s slightly bitter and citrusy on the palate and just taste mostly of pure hops, perhaps with some caramel. The hops are pleasingly bitter on the back of the throat and it’s full flavor hits you. Although heavy it’s still a very drinkible beer, and a superb IPA. Would definitely get it again. (not sure why this one has so many low-ish ratings--I didn’t find this brew weak in neither scent nor flavor!)

355ml bottle. Deep orange almost copper colour with a big fluffy light tan head, looks big and bold. Hoppy aroams burst from the glass, piney and floral. The flavour is every bit as good as the look and the aroma and carries a full mouthfeel and a flavour that stays around on the palate.

Bottle. Great beer, very hoppy. Aromas of grass, caramel, and hints of butter. Taste is bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Good IPA. Pours out of the bottle with a perfect head and nice carmel color. As expected, hops are in abundance but this is what I prefer in a beer. One of my favorite IPA's!
