COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The reddish-hued Ace IPA’s distinct malt flavor complements its generous portion of Northwest hops. This balanced brew achieves a harmony of malt and fruit flavors, the perfect contrast to the grapefruit and herbs in the hop profile.

Davhgbrew (887) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Cloudy dark orange. Lacing and no head, very white. Sips full and citrus. Great body and hop punch. Middle of the road carbonation and big dry orange/grapefruit finish. Alc at 7.4 is well balanced. This is a big brew from a brewery I’m just learning about. Had off tap at wob on the wingman brewery night.

16 ounce can from Beermongers. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A sweet nose of fruit, oranges especially, caramel. The flavor is quite nice: lemons, sweet perfume, some toffee, caramel, lemon rind, medium bitterness especially in the finish. Quite good. A sort of grainy earthy finish with bitter hops.

chuckstout (235) - Washington, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Floral, citrus, dank aromas. Pours a hazy orange with a nice off white head and good lacing. Good lasting hop flavor and bitterness of citrus and resin with a light body. Good stuff

mikedR (936) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2013 Superb West Coast IPA. Cloudy copper pour with a white head, giving off grapefruit hop aroma. Taste is grapefruit hops all the way, with some sweetness. Bitter-forward, but not crazily so -- a complex IPA that rewards a discerning drinker. Substantial and robust mouthfeel with a good malt foundation that yields the spotlight to the hops. Lingering bitterness. This is what West Coast "hop bombs" should aspire to; recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Hazy amber color with a huge rocky head. Dusty pale malt, dry hay, mild floral aromas. light body, average carbonation. Dry pale malt, caramel flavors with dusty hoppage--too dry for the style

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
473ml can pours a brownish amber color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some earthy and pine notes. Taste is an earthy and citrusy hop bitterness with an underlying caramel malty sweetness. Medium body with adequate carbonation leaving a nice tickle on the palate. A high quality IPA that is nicely balanced and highly recommended.

trujahwarrior (479) - Monroe, Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2012
16oz can pours amber/red color with creamy off white homebrew style head with amazing lacing. Smells of pine , orange,grapefruit, and caramel. Tastes the same as it smells. Mouthfeel is heavy and creamy with very active carbonation and a semi dry finish. This is a very well crafted ipa but could use slight improving to push it to a great level.

ACHops (598) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2012
16 oz can. Pours reddish light amber with thick foamy head. Aroma is faint floral hops with some weird off notes. Taste is malt-forward for an IPA, with strong bready malts and unexpected Belgianish floral spice notes. Grapefruit and pine hop notes are present but definitely in the background. Kinda an odd beer, tasty nonetheless.
