3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle @ William K Annankatu
Pours light orange with a small foamy head. Aroma of fruity hops, malts and caramel. Taste is malty and slightly hoppy with fruity notes. Finish is bready and malty. Okay, quite basic IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Caramel malts and grassy hops in the aftertaste. Good drinkability. Good IPA.

I had this extremely fresh, bottled December and I drank it February. That said, huge bitter hoppy taste, smell, and presence. Drank this out of the bottle, cause I was drinkin it at the park. Fresh hops, cut grass, cut wood, very wood tasting actually. I was thinking oak barrels the whole time. Pretty amazing considering no aging on this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 fl oz bottle from Hippo Beers. 6.9%. Orange gold amber colour, foamy white head leaving lacing and aroma of fruity citrus, hoppy. Taste is pale malt, grain, with some citric hop and metallic bitterness. Light to medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry grainy earthy bitter finish. Quite OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blonde dorée limpide, fine mousse blanche. Nez houblonné, agrumes, péche, abricot. L’attaque est amère et les saveurs orange et pamplemousse, une pointe de biscuit. La longueur est correcte, le corps un peu rond. Une american IPA relativement classique.

Det bästa med den här IPA:n är att den är så medelmåttig att jag inte har något att säga om den. Ibland är en lättskriven recension att föredra framför ett kanonöl.

Classic East Coast IPA: hazy orange, medium white head, aroma of citrus. Taste is grapefruit, and lots of hops. Medium-high bitterness, easy to drink, quite decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Deeside Drinks Emporium. Clear body with lots of yeast flecks floating around. Thin white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of musty orange and peppery earth. Flavour of orange and pine. Medium body with an oily mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Better than some of the previous reviews suggest.
