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.

The color was a foggy brown/orange. The head was fizzy and off-white. The aroma smelled strongly of citris hops. The flavor was very dry, hoppy, citrisy, and bitter. The palate was medium and fizzy. The finish was lasting and bitter.

574deadzone (1379) - North Central, Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Bottled 12-28-15, so not fresh in the least. Pours a clearish golden-copper with a sizable eggshell head that settles to a foamy collar and leaves some assorted spotted and ropey lace. Nose involves dried fruit and herbs, some hints at zesty spice, toasted bread dough and sugar cookie. Lightly sweet, decently bitter. Light to medium bodied, somewhat oily, drying and tannic with a woody hop finish. Held up fairly well, though I’m guessing the aromatics would have popped more once upon a time. Still, another nice mildly hoppy one from North Coast.

I expected more. Aroma was average and appearance was appealing. On the plus side it was not overly pine tree tasting...on the down side it was simply not anything special. I’ll probably pass if offered again.

ALIBALI (781) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2016
Optisch solide. Hell und ein klein wenig trüb, die kleine Krone fällt schnell ein. In der Nase Melone & Würze, vielleicht Harz/Pinie. Der Trunk dann kräftig gehopft, mit einem schlanken Korpus ausgestattet und nicht gerade frisch. Der Nachhall ist zwar angenehm lang und hoppy, aber auch eindimensional weissbeerig. Für einen IPA Lover guter amerikanischer Standard. 335ml Flasche vom BROLTERS Bremen. Kurz abgelaufen für 2 Euro.

BlackHaddock (6375) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
22oz bottle in the Californian sun on 30th May 2016. Golden/amber pour with a white topping. Hop lead and finish over a mild malty base, decent IPA with enough bitterness to appeal to hop heads without going ’too far’ or ’over the top’ like some West Coast IPA’s.

toscanoigor (109) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - MAY 5, 2016
Pálida, dourada, com creme de boa formação e baixa duração. Aroma levemente frutado, predominância do lúpulo. O sabor, embora lupulado, surpreende com toques de malte, final cítrico e amargo, seca. Ótima IPA, boa drinkabilidde, corpo médio.

corkyrory66 (1424) - BELGIUM - APR 30, 2016
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 ».

teamsale (193) - Washington, USA - APR 19, 2016
12 oz bottle. A bit of green olives and rubbing alcohol in the aroma, but overall about average appeal. Had one during a meal and another one after. The one during the meal tasted much better than the one after, so I have to say this is a good meal beer but not as much flying solo. High malty caramel flavor, a bit too much for me when standing on its own, but with just the right hop flavor and ideal bitterness level improves this one to finish a bit above average.

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 Typically I don’t consider myself an IPA drinker, but with food I really enjoyed this one. I knew it was going to be hoppy but did find it very drinkable.
