COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The reddish-hued Ace IPAís 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.

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 Iím just learning about. Had off tap at wob on the wingman brewery night.

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

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 thereís this bright tropical tone shining through, with some nice piney bitterness and some rich cracker-y caramel. Itís noticeably flawed but I still find it tasty.

Can: † Amber, a little dark and fiery, moderate white head, foamy, nice lacing. † Nice citrusy and tropical fruit nose. † On the sweeter side, certianly not astringent or biting. † Very smooth on the tongue, sweet citrus and tropical fruit notes. † I am really impressed with this one. † Body and mouthfeel are moderate. † Some slight sweet pith and citrus peel on the backside. † Very clean, not terribly bitter, all white remaining very flavorful. † After having that busted Porter, this was really refreshing! † If you want a hop bomb, this is not it. † However, it is very flavorful.

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

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.

TimE (3146) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 23, 2014
Thin head amber color. Big stone fruit, passion fruit, mango nose. Big malt backbone balances out a lot of hops, but really well balanced. Not too sweet and more herbaceous character in the mouth. Ballsy, but not gangster, and I love that balance.

crackedmachine (470) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Can. Pours a translucent copper-red with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is mild, with distinct herbal notes. Flavor is a bit of semi-sweet candy malt underneath a healthy dose of floral, slightly piney hops. Some lingering spiciness on the palate. Smooth, not palate-wreckingly bitter. This actually has a unique profile, both in aroma and flavor. The Belgian malt coupled with Citra, Cascade, and Centennial hops yields something akin to a Belgian-IPA without the overbearing Belgian yeast flavor those often have. A not-at-all typical NW IPA, and I really like it...at least on my first exposure.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Big hops flavor and aroma. Nice IPA. Good Grapefruit aroma and texture. Super finish.

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