California ipa de 6,9 % abv, et 36 cl de contenu (merci). Mon exemplaire était à 3 mois de sa date limite. Couleur doré soutenu brillant, à la clarté nette. Bulles fines en colonnes, sur les parois. Mousse blanc cassé à flocons fins, nappage stable à 3 mm. Arômes de malt fin, agrumes, pointe de fruits confits, orange, pointe de melon et d’anis étoilé. Superbe nez. 1ère bouche souple au magnifique ensemble malt/houblon/agrumes/herbes fines. Arrière-bouche dense, forte, très harmonieuse. Superbe. 2ème à la remarquable poursuite, avec une pointe d’épices. Arrière-bouche équilibrée, à l’amertume extraordinaire. 3ème avec densité, précision, équilibre, ampleur. Arrière-bouche superbement riche. Longueur au développement magistral de l’amertume. Jambes à flocons moyens, serrées, longues. Levure fine, aux subtiles nuances, très grande ligne. Alcool au très beau niveau, avec un contrôle absolu de l’ensemble et des saveurs. Finale grandiose. CONCLUSION : quel plaisir immense que de retrouver une vraie américaine, made in USA, qui plus est en Californie, après quelques françaises qui n’en avaient que l’étiquette !!!!!!&# grande bière de cette brasserie classée dans les 10 meilleures du monde par le « beverage testing institute ».

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.

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 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.

330ml body, ed in a North Coast chalice. Enjoyed at The Globe - Hong Kong. Pours a clear orange color forming a medium white head and leaving some soapy lacings in the glass. Sweet nose. Notes of caramel and tropical fruits like watermelon and passion fruit. Slightly sweet upfront taste. Caramel malts. Grassy hops, grapefruit. Good medium bitter punch. Medium body, good carbonation. 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.

danlo (3063) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
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.

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.

harrisoni (18575) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Hazy gold amber colour, thin cream head. Some big hops with a slight toffee undertow. Hops are light grapefruit. Some bitterness on the finish. Decent enough IPA. Not too sweet. Good hops.
