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

Average, very average. It’s not bad, and it’s not great. Serviceable, with a solid caramel malt backbone and a nice dose of hops. Nothing I’d go out of my way to seek out, though.

355ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Big resinous hop aromas, pine and light citrus, light caramel. Taste is bitter, more resin, light pith. Oily texture, bitter finish. Good.

Idiosynkrasie (3593) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 25, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average to huge, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grassy and slightly floral hoppy aroma. Taste is slightly sweet malty, grassy and floral hoppy overtones. Boring especially for a Cali IPA.

fabioanselmo (173) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - JUN 23, 2014
Aroma frutadíssimo com presença de algo floral. No olhar, uma linda espuma duradoura, bem carbonatada. Um dourado escuro. O sabor é maltado e levemente lupulado, com aparente amargor. No paladar, algo seco, mas completamente bebível. Saborosa e amarga na medida.

Transfer from BA review on 5-27-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium golden amber color with a huge white head. The head has big bubbles entrapped within which rapidly lead to a recession of the head, to leave a moderate level of lacing. Smell – A citrus hop aroma is the heaviest, but overall it is quite light. Mixed with the citrus are some tastes of caramel and a bit of pine. Taste – The taste starts out sweeter and maltier with nice citrus and caramel sweetness and maltiness a white bread malty nature. As the taste advances, it bitter more with heavier citrus hop notes as well as a very light pine hop flavor. These flavors take the taste to the end and overall leave a somewhat bitter-sweet citrus hop flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just slightly above medium with the carbonation level bordering on the same (just above average). Both are quite nice of the style and the flavor profile of the brew. Overall – A easy drinking IPA that is slightly on the sweeter side. Not bad.

Bottle from beer swap Saturday. Thanks, Chris! Pours orange gold with a big white head. Aroma is grassy, citrusy hop. Taste starts of citrus juicy, but quickly devolves into a lingering grassy bitterness.
