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.

12oz bottle. It poured a creamy yellowy orange with a decent head. Some lacing but not much. Nice strong hoppy flavor with a strong bitter aftertaste.

Ferris (4985) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle - Earthy hops and some pale malts with a bit of cardboard. Clear gold with a rich white head. Sweet pale malts and earthy hops with a bitter finish. Much like an English style IPA.

Andrus86 (59) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2014
BOTTLE. Golden colour with foamy head, lots of carb. A hoppy bitterness was all I got on the nose. Biscuit like malt at the front followed by a quick bitter bite that fades by end of the mouthful. Sourced Cellarbrations @ Capel

JHeath99 (1117) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden with a thin layer of off white head. Aroma and taste of floral hops and some malts.

wyzzywyz22 (2036) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Copper coloured pour with a meek white head. Citrus, tropical fruit and some hop present in the nose. Biscuity malts, piney hop, minerals and a slight metallic tang in the flavour which lets it down.A bit thin and lacked any real oomph. Disappointingly unremarkable and probably not worth bringing 1,000s of miles across the pond frankly.

R4N5H (127) - SINGAPORE - NOV 21, 2014
355ml bottle at The Globe, Hong Kong, poured into a tulip. 6.9% ABV. Dark amber with a small head which quickly disappears. Hardly any lacing. Aroma of citrus, pine and hops. Medium carbonation. A dry and bitter grapefruit taste, light malt - quite nice.

k0mpsa (1353) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - NOV 8, 2014
Tap at taphouse, copenhagen. Little hazy copper color, white head. Aroma is nice hoppy and fruity, some malts. Malty body, light fruits and hops.

Maxbier (391) - Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2014
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 (1710) - 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.
