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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3058) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2015
Can from World Beer Market via Rakuten. Served in a pint glass. 7.6% this orange copper beauty has a fantastically enticing hop bouquet giving off resinous dank floral & fruity notes. Thick a rich garden with the nurturing mulch and heady scent of blooming flowers and ripe citrus fruit. Med-full bodied the finish is very bitter and dry. The taste is a hop punch to the tastebuds, not as balanced as the nose just earthy bitter pine. Man this is bitter! Too bitter for my tastes.

marcus (7554) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Can shared by haggerty. Pours orange amber with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a very bitter grapefruit finish.

Sledutah (6040) - Utah, USA - FEB 12, 2015
16oz can picked up at Total Wine
A volcano erupted when I opened it up. Lost half of the can on my desk, floor and finally made it to the garbage can. Pours cloudy golden with a huge off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is floral, dusty, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, pine, fruity and very bitter, dry
Not balanced, a very bitter finish. Would have been footbalmed if I had a whole can.

Theydon_Bois (12731) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Keg at the taproom, 07/11/14. Lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering, good lacing ensues. Nose is bitter orange, citric pith, melon, orange squash, earthy hop tunes. Taste comprises light pine, straw, grapefruit, bitter orange. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Adequate IPA.

Ferris (7672) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft - Piny Skunky hops, very fresh. Cloudy gold with nice rich beige head. Piny hops, with an upfront bitter hit and tropical fruit in the finish. Bitterness is a bit much for me.

slowrunner77 (7099) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Dark pour. Body like a double, big and smooth without the alcohol. Malt forward with a very pleasant fruitiness, though the hops do get drowned out a little. Not bad, not great."

Beerandhockey8 (255) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - JUL 23, 2014
From 12oz can to shaker. Pour is a nice orange color with a thick off white head. Nose is big hop, strong grapefruit, other light citrus notes. Taste is a lighter body, bitter but very balanced out with sweetness from the grapefruit. Finishes a little dry. Nice IPA

EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Herbal, citrus fruit, floral hop aroma. Similar hop flavor--plus subtle pepper. Kind of a stale-ish earthy and tart/apple flavor. Pretty firm bitterness. Need to try/rate again, if I ever get a chance.

onceblind (5447) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Hazy copper under a nice foamy off-white head. Pretty nice nose of sweet fruity caramel with some papaya and mango hops, perhaps a bit of pine and raw coconut as well. Really interesting hop nose. The flavor is a bit yeasty and muddled but there’s this bright tropical tone shining through, with some nice piney bitterness and some rich cracker-y caramel. It’s noticeably flawed but I still find it tasty.

Huge ass grapefruit and toffee biscuit malt body. Very straight forward but hops to the head.
