A- Nice orange, brownish color. A fat 3 fingered head when i poured this aggressively. Head is very big and foamy, lasts a while.. like whipped cream on the top of this beer... Seriously i have a big foamy head on this beer..
S- I smell hops, malts barley and some light sweetness like honey.. I have to smell again as the head goes down..
T- Some great hops that arent very bitter, they impact my mouth and leave them wanting some more! i get a slight taste of some nice apple flavor...
M- Got that fresh california feel, just like the red seal ale which is one of my favorites. great beer that i cant say enough about. Just try it for yourself!
D- Yum, love this IPA.

Bottle: a stubby brown 355mL bottle with a very retro throwback label per the 'Acme' name. Something different.
Appearance: pours a fantastic golden amber with a thick, fluffing off-white head with good retention. Thin lacing across down the entire glass also. Only sporadic fine carbonation visible.
Aroma: orange citrus with sweet malts - predominantly biscuits. A very tempting proposition - I just hope the palate can deliver.
Taste: a big, almost overbearing hop bitterness up front which flows into a sweeter citrus, caramel and biscuit IPA loveliness.
Aftertaste: the bitterness lingers through nicely along with a more defined citrus character. Very nice indeed.
Mouth feel: quite thick in body with a fine yet spritzy carbonation across the entire palate characteristic of a good IPA.
Overall: I wasn't expecting much from the cool yet slightly tacky-looking package, but it sure did deliver. Plenty of citrus and malts, with hop bitterness throughout the session. Very drinkable, and very enjoyable.
